Sydney lockdown continues and Proximity Plumbing is operating under full Covid-19 precautions to serve our local community. Unfortunately, Covid or not, plumbing issues and emergencies don’t take a break!
Plumbers are classified as essential workers and we are permitted to serve our local, eastern suburbs community and assist in any and all plumbing issues for our customers. BUT you want to make sure you are choosing a truly local service provider. We’ve got you covered with the information in this article.
We’d like to stress in these moments, please arm yourself as an informed consumer. You can read our article here about being mindful of some of the cowboys in our industry who could look to capitalise on the current situation.
Something we want to share with our community is more of an awareness around knowing exactly who you are booking when it comes to finding a plumber online. There is a real difference between a “Sydney Plumber” and a true, local plumber near you.
In our lockdown situation, hiring a local plumber is more important than ever. You want to choose a team who lives and works in your local area, and not someone from further afield who may be travelling from a hotspot with high community spread numbers of Covid.
Firstly, when you search on Google, the results will be shown in three different areas:
These results are from Google. Based on all the information Google has, it’s who they perceive as being the best plumber near you. Thanks, Google! But in all seriousness Google: the main goal is understanding user intent and providing the best and most relevant organic search results for your search terms.
So many times, the “Plumber Near You” that you’ve booked to come out to your job “right away” is actually all the way across the city and will take hours to get to you. When you look at the Google responses to a plumber geographically close to you, there is no marketing here and only plumbers near you will be shown in the search results.
Choosing a truly local plumber means they will generally be there fast (Proximity Plumbing has a 30-minute on-site guarantee for the eastern suburbs) and will be able to get to work on your plumbing emergency ASAP!
Before you dive in and secure a plumber to service your plumbing job, please take 5-10 minutes to ask these key questions. If you’re asking a plumber these questions and they are offended, chances are they’re trying to hide something.
Any proud plumber would love an opportunity to answer any of these questions. We’ve gone to the liberty of filling in our answers for you!
A: Proximity Plumbing is a true eastern suburb based team, we’re located at Point Piper and you’ve probably seen our vans cruising the eastern suburbs streets, our office is also on Military Road Dover Heights.
(With this question, be mindful if someone says they service the whole of Sydney. If you can’t see their office address on google, ask the question which suburb are they physically located? If they’re being evasive, then politely say you’re looking around and call another provider.)
