How do you take advantage of the endless supply of leads and opportunities when you only have a finite amount of time every day? Can you afford to spend a half a day or more accompanying your clients to several showrooms all over town?

The answer is a one-stop kitchen showroom with dedicated staff to assist you and your clients to get projects completed efficiently and within budget. Kitchen showrooms offer businesses, like yours, endless benefits including one-stop product selection with product specialists, design and budget proposals, and accurate, on-time delivery to your job site.

 

Project Bidding

Estimating projects to meet client demands can be time-consuming and difficult without new technology. Select a kitchen showroom that has a dedicated staff of estimators with years of experience in residential and light-commercial construction. Estimating specialists help you value-engineer projects to meet the expectations and budgets of your clients. By using sophisticated software and real-life construction experience, an in-house estimating team can save you time with specific cabinet, countertop and flooring design and layout for new construction or remodeling projects.

One-Stop Product Selection

Multiple client meetings are often necessary to hash out product selection and design aesthetics throughout the phases of construction. Showrooms, like the ones offered by MYERS, can take the pain away by guiding your clients through the process from start to finish at one of our convenient locations. With your budget input, we can set up an appointment with your client and offer a one-stop selection experience, helping with colors, styles and sizes from a wide variety of products at one of our six kitchen showrooms. The best part is that you can spend your time working on other aspects of your business while our building product specialists work their magic.

Utilizing a one-stop showroom gives you the availability to cover  90% of selections your client will need to make all in one place, saving everyone time and money. Products available in the MYERS showrooms include:

  • Exterior products: roofing, siding, windows, doors, decking, railing and decorative trim
  • Interior products: doors, interior trim, stairways, decorative hardware, wall planking, ceilings, flooring, cabinetry and countertops

Accurate & On-Time Delivery

There is nothing worse than having your crew waiting for a promised delivery that doesn’t show up on time, or at all. This is an expense that eats into your profit and makes it tough to keep projects running smoothly and on time.  When you make your selections at a showroom, you will never worry about delivery again.

Using high-tech software, the experienced dispatchers at MYERS optimize truck loading and map out the most efficient routes for drivers, so your products arrive on-time and undamaged. We also can assist with unloading, using our delivery roofing boom cranes and rough terrain forklifts. In many cases, we send an extra helper with our drivers to unload.

In addition to the delivery software, having access to an app, like the MYERS Mobile APP, allows you to see where your deliveries are, in real-time, so you know when to send a crew to the site. You will also receive a notice and photographs of your delivery to verify you got what you ordered.

MYERS has been helping building professionals for 102 years by offering profitable solutions from experienced building product specialists. Take a tour of our Elevations showroom or schedule an appointment and take advantage of the one-stop product selection experience with MYERS.
