Entrepreneur lists SERVPRO #4 of the top 10 Franchises for 2015

1/21/2016 (Permalink)

The SERVPRO Franchise System is listed as number 4 again in 2016 for best franchise.  

We here at SERVPRO of Hyde Park / Central Austin want to say congratulations to a great Team and Family in Gallatin TN.  We are glad to be part of it. 

We have been in the restoration business in Austin, TX since 1998.  Prior to us joining the SERVPRO franchise network we were an independent company.  We joined the network for several reasons.  The Biggest reasons are Systems and Processes.  Growing a business may or may not be difficult for some people but growing a business that is profitable and sustainable is not so easy.  The SERVPRO system really makes it easy for franchises to growth a good strong business that is sustainable and generational.

Preferred Vendor vs Non Preferred Vendor

1/19/2016 (Permalink)

We are here to help

SERVPRO of Hyde Park / Central Austin is a preferred vender for most insurance companies.  We have been on some programs for over 16 years.  

I have heard people say you don't want to use a program vendor.  That preferred vendors only do the bare minimum and they only do what the insurance company says to do.  Those are not true statements. 

As a trusted vendor for many carriers if I can justify something they will pay for it on any covered claim.  In 18 years I have never had an insurance company or home owner come back to me for something that was not justified.

Insurance companies want you to renew your policy.  They know you need to been taken care of.  They only want good qualified companies representing them as a preferred vendor.  Price is not the insurance companies number one motive. 

Would you consider going out of network on your health insurance?  Probably not, simply because the carrier may not or will not pay for  your doctor visit.  I am not suggesting your carrier won't cover your claim because you don't use a program vendor, but you may run into challenges if a non program company does something your carrier doesn't approve of.  As a trusted vendor I can get approvals on questionable concerns very quickly. 

Water Damge, Fire or smoke, a preferred vendor really can make the claim process go much smoother.
