This is one of the most popular questions we encounter. We receive multiple phone calls a week from folks who are trying to get a price for their landscape system over the phone. However, that simply isn’t an accurate way to quote installations. Not all fixtures are the same price, not all systems require the same amount of wiring, and some systems need two transformers in order to power the system. We certainly could come up with a price per fixture, but that would be dishonest because some people would end up drastically overpaying for their fixtures. We want to provide high-quality landscape lighting systems at a reasonable price, we don’t want to take advantage of anyone. That is why each lighting fixture has its own price and all quotes are custom and must be personally prepared by our lighting technician.
It’s tempting to maximize profits and adopt the “price per fixture” system, but we want to provide each customer with a personalized quote based on their desired fixtures. At first glance, the price per fixture quoting technique seems to be a quick and simple way to prepare proposals and quotes. However, quoting lighting systems is not quite that simple. Would you really expect a contractor to quote your project without taking into consideration labor fluctuation or digging through rocky terrain? Some projects require that we dig and lay wire under a sidewalk; that will affect the cost of your installation dramatically.
In order to provide a fair and accurate quote, we need to see the property and determine what types of fixtures are wanted/needed. It is not only for our benefit, but for yours as well. So if you ever call another landscape lighting company and they give you a price per fixture quote, then you are putting yourself at risk for over-payment out of the gates and/or up-charges throughout the installation because their proposal was not all-inclusive. Make sure that you have all the facts. Call Southern Lights for you all-inclusive quote today.
