1. More scheduling options
You may expect sprinkler companies to be busy this time of year, but many, including My Sprinkler Guys, are even busier than busy. If you have a flexible schedule, getting an appointment to close down your system should be fairly simple. However, if you have a tricky schedule and limited availability, calling early will make it easier to get a day and time that works for you and the company.
2. Easier to get through
In the Macomb and Oakland county area, winterizing is done during a fairly short window of time between mid-September and November. This means once the season is in full swing (October), the office phones ring constantly. If you don’t have a lot of time to call and call back, trying early on will be your best bet.
3. Possible Savings
Some companies give a small discount to groups of neighbors or communities who schedule their appointments close together on the same day. Planning early with your neighborhood or association may allow you to take advantage of that kind of offer.
4. You can be sure to avoid freeze damage
This of course is the most important reason to make sure you get an appointment during “shut off season”. Winterizing your system is definitely not something you want to slip your mind. Even one decent freeze with water still in your pipes can cause significant damage and plenty of headaches in the following spring. As you know, we’ve had some crazy weather this spring and summer, so who knows what Mother Nature will throw at us this fall. Be prepared for whatever comes by staying ahead of the game and wrapping up outdoors as soon as you can.
