My company, LaRocca Inspections, has been using a wonderful scheduling office to book our inspections for years. They are located in the same office as us and began booking our sister companies inspections a few years back as well (Mold, Chimney & Sewer Inspections.) This was so successful and so helpful to our clients that the scheduling company has decided to become a one call only Central Scheduling Office.
InspectionLink is the name of the office and they can now book a variety of inspections that may be needed or wanted either during a real estate transaction, needed for Insurance purposes or just wanted by a typical home owner.
They can currently schedule Property Inspections (Residential, Multi-Family & Commercial Properties), Certified Stone Inspections, Chimney Inspections, Drainage Inspections, Electrical Inspections, Foundation Inspections, Geological Inspections, Mold Inspections, Pool & Spa Inspections, Plumbing Inspections, Rain Leak Detection, Restoration Drycleaning Assessments, Roofing Inspections & Certifications, Sewer Inspections, Septic Inspections & Termite Inspections.
They currently cover Los Angeles County and some surrounding areas but plan to expand both their services and coverage area in 2009. Ideally they will be able to book any kind of inspection you need anywhere in Southern CA by the end of the year.
In order to schedule an inspection through inspectionLink the client or agent can call one number and tell the scheduler what time frame they plan on being at the property. InspectionLink will do the coordinating to get all of the inspectors at the property during the time frame specified so that the clients and agent do not have to drive to the property multiple times (TIME IS MONEY AFTER ALL!). This service will not cost the client a dime. (They will still be charged the normal inspection fees.)
The best thing is that InspectionLink only includes inspectors that are properly qualified. Each Inspector or Company that InspectionLink books for has to provide copies of necessary licensing, certifications, insurance, workmans comp, bonds and any other relevant certifications for their field. InspectionLink keeps these documents on file and will be happy to fax a copy as needed to any client who requests it.
So, what do you think? Would you use this service? Do you have any questions or comments? Please let me know.
