Turning Over A System To A Salesman

As technicians, after completing a service call and discussing potential equipment replacement with the customer, it’s crucial to avoid a common pitfall: immediately scheduling an appointment for a comfort advisor or salesman to present options. Instead, we need to instill a sense of urgency in the customer, compelling them to take action promptly.

When a customer inquires about the cost of a new unit, our response should not be to set up an appointment right away. Instead, we should deflect the question tactfully. For instance, we can say, “Mr. Smith, as a technician, I’m not equipped to provide pricing details off the cuff. However, I can tell you that now is an excellent time to consider investing in a new air conditioner.” By highlighting ongoing manufacturer rebates and special financing options, we plant the seed of urgency in the customer’s mind.

Furthermore, we express concern about the tight schedule of our sales department and the impending hot weather, subtly nudging the customer to act swiftly. By asking if they’re looking to proceed immediately or just exploring options, we encourage them to commit to a course of action. If they express interest in moving forward promptly, we then convey the challenges of securing an appointment due to the high demand for our services.

Instead of immediately setting a lead, we convey to the customer that we’ll make an effort to accommodate their request. We suggest reaching out to a manager or senior technician to see if they can visit the customer promptly. During this call, we recap the issues discovered during the service call, emphasizing the urgency of the situation. By mentioning specific problems like a faulty secondary motor control, oil-leaking fan motor, and clogged evaporator coil, we underscore the necessity of immediate action.

Once the manager confirms availability, we circle back to the customer to ensure they’re still committed to addressing the issue promptly. This approach creates a sense of cognitive dissonance in the customer, compelling them to follow through on their earlier agreement. When the sales representative later meets with the customer, they can leverage this sense of urgency, reinforcing the importance of taking action promptly to avoid missing out on incentives and to address pressing system issues.

In essence, by strategically building urgency during the turnover process, we facilitate a smoother transition from technician to sales representative, enhancing our chances of securing a successful sale.
