The purchase a home generator is rarely an impulse.
There’s a good reason why. Most buyers do so to ensure security for them and their families. They want to protect themselves if the power goes out. This type of commitment is not always at the forefront of those who “shoot from the hip.”
“A typical sales cycle is about 80 to 90 days,” says Tobias Sommer, president of Home Generators for Sale. “You give people the information, they digest it and usually they make a decision after that.”
Because generators can be expensive, buyers need something they can both depend on and afford.
“If you pay several thousand dollars for a piece of machinery, you want to learn as much as possible about it,” Tobias says. “Most people give more thought to big purchases like these.
Start with Research
Most people who buy generators for their home or business spend a long time to consider and research their decision. To make the best decision for your circumstances, you should learn about topics like:
- What a standby generator can and cannot do
- How generators handle different temperatures
- Should yours be liquid-cooled or air-cooled
- What the right size generator is for your needs
- What brands are better-rated than others
Unfortunately, there’s much misleading information online. Your first step toward making an educated purchase is to consult by phone with Home Generators for Sale.
Consult with Professionals
“Your phone consultation can take up to an hour. We talk about your specific circumstances, and help you understand the process,” Tobias says. “Most customers already have a lot of misinformation from online. They read Wiki articles or find some YouTube guy who says this or that works. We put such details into context.”
As you learn about home generators, you must decide your specific needs and what you can afford. For example:
- How much of your home’s systems and appliances will you need your generator to power?
- Do you need a generator that automatically kicks on as soon as power goes out, or can you get away with one you manually turn on?
- Do you need a generator that’s portable, or do you want one that is permanently installed?
By the time your phone consultation with Home Generators for Sale is finished, you’ll have a better idea what generator is right for you and its general price range.
Have Your Site Surveyed
Now you move to the site survey. “Depending on your specific needs, we schedule an on-site survey,” Tobias says. “That’s particularly important if you need a backup generator instead of a portable one.”
The survey usually takes 45 minutes to an hour. When the Home Generators for Sale representative leaves your home, you’ll know which generator is your best fit and its price.
The only time the price quote won’t be exact,Tobias says, is if the installation of your generator requires utility work and those organizations must be contacted.
This simple process of education, consultation and familiarization assures that you buy the generator best suited to your needs. So schedule your phone interview todayand let an expert guide you through the process.
