Don’t Send Pest Control After-Hour Business to Your Competitors, Utilize Our Pest Control Answering Service

Pest Control Answering ServiceMany pest control companies are managed and operated by the owners themselves. This means one person or a small team of pest control technicians are running the entire show, 7 days a week, 365 days a years. Imagine if your pest control business has the help of highly trained and award winning virtual receptionists for service professionals through a Pest Control Answering Service.

A 24 Hour Pest Control Answering Service

What would you do?

It’s the middle of the night and you hear clawing and scratching coming from the attic, right above your bed. What is the first thing you would do? I would get out of that room fast. I am sure many would do the same. A phone call to a local pest control company to rid me of my midnight guest would be my next move. If I were to be greeted by a voicemail, I would definitely hang up and continue my search for a live pest control hero. I am not alone here; up to 80% of callers that receive a voicemail will hang up without leaving a message. Are you a pest control business owner and operator? Are you looking for the solution to avoid handing over business to your competitors when you are unable to get to the phone?

I have heard many customers say, “I am so glad you called, I would have forgotten all about that appointment.”
