One of the most common complaints that customers have about plumbing companies is that they’re often difficult to reach.
This makes sense because most plumbing companies are small businesses that have limited resources and staff at their disposal. If your plumbing company struggles to answer customers’ calls, it’s missing out on untold amounts of business–and your reputation is probably being tarnished.
Unanswered Calls Are Missed Opportunities and Revenue
Not being there to take a phone call during regular business hours is bad enough. Not being there when an emergency strikes in the middle of the night is much worse.
With so many competitors vying for their business, callers can–and do–give up on companies that don’t have actual humans available to take their calls. Customers expect to be greeted and helped quickly, but if they’re asked to leave a voicemail, chances are good that they’ll just move on to the next plumbing company.
Our plumbing answering service allows you to focus on running your business while ensuring that phone calls are answered by skilled, live operators around the clock. Whether you experience high call volumes by day and need overflow help or have no way to take calls after hours, you won’t find a better solution. Our live answering staff can dispatch your emergency response staff directly, or schedule work during your next hours of operation.
What’s the Difference Between a Call Center and a Phone Answering Service?
Call centers and phone answering services have a lot in common. Both will give you a live person answering the phone on behalf of your business, but the similarities end there.
Most call centers are high volume and focused on cost. They’re typically understaffed, underpaid, and not located in the US. Call centers evaluate their employees based on how quickly they can get a caller off the phone, and it shows.
Call answering services like Front Office Solutions are focused on call quality, not quantity. We work with a smaller number of clients in a few focused industries, like plumbing and HVAC, which means we can put more resources into learning your unique business needs. Our staff is also coached to provide courteous, professional service to each caller, instead of trying to get them off the phone as quickly as possible. Last but not least, our call answering service gives you many more options for how we handle each call: we can forward live service calls to you, change the greeting based on your current promotions, screen unwanted calls, send important business development calls straight to your voicemail, and much more.
A phone answering service and a call center may sound similar, but once you’ve tried a phone answering service, we’re confident that you’ll never go back.

When you sign up for our answering service for plumbing companies, you’ll enjoy all of these benefits and more:
• Telephone Service Representatives Specifically Trained for Plumbing – One of the top problems that plumbing companies experience with answering services is unskilled, poorly trained TSRs. You never have to worry about that with Front Office Solutions because every TSR that we employ undergoes extensive training. Our call answering staff is coached to be courteous, professional, and to understand how your business operates, so they can not only serve an important role within your business, but represent it as well. All of our TSRs are native English speakers, and they are trained to follow your exact protocols. As a result, no one who speaks to them will suspect that they are not actual employees of your business.
• For Residential and Commercial Plumbing Companies – Every type of plumbing business can benefit from professional call handling. Our live operators make upholding your professional image a priority, so commercial clients will be impressed with your responsiveness and and professionalism.
• Personalized Service Plan – Every plumbing company is different. In light of this, we will sit down with you to find our exactly what you need from an answering service, and we’ll then create a customized service plan that addresses all of your requirements.
• Packages – We offer flat-fee packages that simplify the process of getting answering service assistance. Unlike many of our competitors, we won’t tack on extra charges and give you sticker shock. From the moment that you sign up, you will know exactly how much you will be paying–and that figure won’t unexpectedly change. All packages can be further customized with a la carte features for additional fees.
• Local Phone Numbers – In the interest of reassuring your customers that you are locally owned and operated, you’d probably like any number that they call to be local to you. With Front Office Solutions’ plumbing answering service, you will enjoy local-to-you numbers, so your customers never have to know that you are hiring out for this service.
• First-Rate Equipment – Part of our commitment to providing top-notch service includes arming our telephone service representatives, or TSRs, with the latest and best tools and equipment. Through the use of advanced digital recording technology, we are able to record all calls that we handle for you. We can also submit them to you in a variety of formats, so there is no need to compromise.
• Reports – Keep up to speed about calls that are handled while you are away with detailed daily reports. These reports can be delivered to you every morning or at the time of day that works best for you. Use them to ensure that leads are followed up on and that all of your customers’ needs are being met.
• Commercial Plumbing Companies – Many commercial plumbers receive emergency requests emailed to them throughout the night from facilities maintenance management companies such as Service Chanel or Corrigo. Our system allows us to accept these emails for you throughout the night and forward the emergency requests to your on-call techs. Because we are staffed 24/7, these emails are always answered promptly so that you are able to service your commercial clients in a timely manner.
• More – Front Office Solutions stands out from other plumbing answering services by offering a vast selection of thoughtful features. Our TSRs can handle after-hours calls and overflow calls. They can also screen calls for you to minimize interruptions throughout the day. All calls are digitally recorded and then backed up to ensure that they aren’t lost. Messages can be delivered via email, chat, SMS message, fax or phone, and you can replace generic hold music with your own advertisement if you’d like.
