Vanderwist is proud to offer their customers full time service departments in each division location. With our full time service technicians and full time office support, our service capabilities are outstanding. We have the capabilities to schedule routine calls up to two years in advance and have a routing/map system to aid in the planning of those last minute calls.
Vanderwist service technicians have extensive experience in locating, identifying and resolving all types of irrigation, lighting and fountain problems. Employees attend training workshops covering electrical troubleshooting, valve and wire evaluation, as well as use of diagnostic equipment which allows us to spend less time troubleshooting the root cause of your specific service problem.
Service technicians are also trained not to waste time troubleshooting if they feel they are not able to find the problem within a reasonable amount of time. Irrigation and lighting repair can sometimes require a “process of elimination” approach, and therefore we do encounter problems that might require more than one visit to repair. We encourage our technicians to discuss the best mode of troubleshooting with the customer so they can work as a team to come up with an economical/time conscious method to repair your system.
Due to a large service customer base, Vanderwist offers two types of service programs for their installation customers; Option I and Option II. We feel strongly about preserving a strong service department for our customers. Over the years, we have controlled the number of new service customers accepted. Unfortunately, we cannot always accept other contractors service clients. We do our best to comply with new customer’s request, but do not want to spread ourselves too thin that we cannot respond to our first priority – our own customer base.
Help is usually just a phone call away. As an added value, many customers enjoy the use of the customer service line. We are able to help many of our customers “over the phone” with minor issues regarding the operation or adjustment of their irrigation and lighting systems.
