How much time are you wasting with the telephone book?  

by Pool Builders on 02-25-2010 in Articles

Are you wasting your time on the telephone calling around to swimming pool contractors? There are many ways to begin your search for a swimming pool contractor, one of which is the "old school" way, the dreaded telephone book. The phone book is something most of all have grown up with and if your in your early forties like me, your parents probably still keep it right next to the telephone. It is an american icon, something we could not wait to receive. We all cherished the day when it hit our front porch so we could toss out our old, tattered and completely "chicken scratched" one.

Well times they are a changing. No more running around the house yelling, "the new phone books here", "the new phone books here." The phone book, in my opinion, needs to be retired all together. Most of us have computers in this day and age and the internet. It is a "save the tree way" to research any companies in our area and beyond.

If a swimming pool contractor is in your future, do not depend on your local telephone book. There are many ways to research both local businesses and ones that are not in your municipality. If your in a rural area or living downtown, there are many FREE websites that will provide information you supply to them to local and not, companies who have already been researched and credentials have been verified. These websites verify a contractor license and proof of liability insurance. The best thing is, these companies are going to compete for your business and it is like going to Walmart, one stop shopping.

So Google "swimming pool quotes" or "swimming pool prices" or "get a swimming pool estimate", Google is the wave of now and the future. I think you will find your swimming pool shopping just became a whole lot easier.

Thanks for reading and happy swimming!
