Pro lab keeps calling my business trying to get my business. We use a local lab, which we have expressed to them, but they still keep calling. We even have their number blocked, but they still leave messages.
Whats the best part? They are dropping the NACHI bomb as a means of endorsement or claiming they are part of nachi.
For the record. I will never use pro lab period. I recommend anyone who does do enviromental testing find a local lab where you can keep your business locally.
Keep calling me and I will start complaining to any online resource I have at my disposal.
However they do send InterNACHI members (exclusively) tons of consumer traffic. They are North America’s largest laboratory and they direct every consumer who wants an inspector to www.InspectorSEEK.com from some 50,000 retail outlets in the U.S. and Canada: http://www.nachi.org/50000retailoutlets.htm Their kits’ directions encourage consumers to call IAC2 and InterNACHI members for further inspections.
Anyway, PRO-LAB can act like a nutty sister-in-law sometimes, but at least their our nutty sister-in-law.
Another issue that I was going to start a thread on, but I will mention here. Last 3 days I have been getting several emails that start with “notice to appear…”.
The first one was scary, but I was told to appear for a court case in Sacramento, CA. Since I have not been there in over 20 years, I ignored it. A few moments later, I got the same thing for Raleigh NC. Then Kansas City, KS. Then, they kept coming from other cities. Over 16 emails over 3 days, stating a “Notice to Appear”.
This is a major virus, and will affect your computer if opened.
Here is my advice: Take the call. And say this:
“You called me. I didn’t call you. Did you call me to waste my time? What do you have to tell me on the phone today that is going to make me more money? If you’ve called me today because you have some way for me to profit from this phone call… I’m all ears. So tell me how your phone call is going to help me. You’ve got 2 minutes. Ready, Set… Go!”*
I couldn’t disagree more. This is our industry’s largest vendor. They aren’t calling to sell you Viagara. I’d stop everything and listen to what they have to say. I’m not saying you should whip out your credit card instantly, but you should find out why they think they needed to call you.
