Summer maintenance will be here before you know it.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who would I be getting pricing from?
ELC doesn’t work with just anyone. Your pricing comes from a carefully curated list of Preferred Providers. Each provider comes highly recommended by property managers and are heavily vetted to guarantee they can handle your projects.
Can you get pricing from vendors I use?
Absolutely!! We welcome any provider into our Preferred Provider List that you recommend.
How does ELC make any money?
Our Pricing Package is free to Property Managers. When providers send us pricing for your projects, they agree to pay us a flat fee based on the size of the project: $295 for projects $6,000 or less (never more than 10%), $345 for projects between $6,000 and $12,000, and $445 for contracts over $12,000 (never less than 2%).
How long does it take to get pricing?
You will get pricing back from 3 or more providers within 10 days of approving your project’s RFP.
How does the process work?
Our Pricing Package is a very simple process:
- We create an RFP including project specifications, square footage of turf, carpet or parking lot along with maps so everyone is on the same page, depending on the project.
- You approve the RFP and we send it to our Preferred Providers along with anyone else you would like included.
- After we receive everyone’s pricing, you receive a final report along with a recommendation who we suggest you use.
- You choose your provider and sign contracts directly with them.
- We will help corral I9s, Certificates of Insurance as well as letting the losing providers know they didn’t get the contract.
Do I sign a contract with ELC?
No. You do not sign any contracts with ELC for our Pricing Package. It is 100% risk-free. If you don’t like the pricing, you can go back to your old way. If you like the pricing you get, we will work with you to get a contract.
I already do this myself. Why would I need to work with you?
Our process isn’t right for everyone and may not be right for you. Our best clients are extremely organized and constantly looking for ways to improve. By using our free services, you are freeing up time to do whatever you want!
Use that time to visit your properties more often, talk more with your tenants, do more prospecting or even — go home at a normal time and hang out with your kids!!! We dare you!
Won't it cost more if providers are paying you fees?
99 time out of 100, we will get you better pricing than you are currently paying. One way we do this is by creating a system of competitive bidding for your work. If providers know there are other, high quality providers giving pricing, they will give you their best shot at your work.
Also, we have a highly systematized, solid process for requesting pricing that our Preferred Providers love. By working with us, they know they will have access to more work and solid RFPs with maps and square footage that save them time putting together pricing.
