Group Buying AC's For Apartments Saves Money For Everyone
When it comes to apartment and condominium or other multi-family building more and more home-owners are taking advantage of purchasing as a group in order to take advantage of group or "bulk" order discounts. As a vendor to the multi-family industry I have seen an increase in this type of buying format and it really makes sense. The more AC units we can put on one truck and deliver (and install) at the same time reduces our expense enormously and we are then able to pass the savings onto the buyer. I find many of our multi-family apartment accounts have a great system in place which help streamline the process. There is usually a designated person who works with us to put the group purchase plan together for the building. They would then discuss the plan at a board meeting with other board members and if all agree this would be a good idea they would get the word out to the building home-owners either through internal email, letters, flyers, etc.
Air Conditioners are typically a perfect fit for a group purchase. During the summer season they are needed by just about everyone in the building so more people are likely to opt in and take advantage of the discounted price. In addition they do not have to deal with installation or old unit removals concerns because that is part of the group purchase program. It is a true win-win situation with only upside.
To help get the group purchase program off the ground RoomAire can arrange a free on-site product presentation to the home-owners so that everyone interested can see the product for themselves and ask us questions.
