We are the American blue collar worker. We are the taxpayers. We are how things get done. Hollywood's betrayal of us is unfair, damaging and exhausting. Watch Mike Rowe and stand up for the middle class. Hollywood is not. See Mike Rowe's most recent video on the American Blue Collar worker.
Mapleservice is part of the Eureka Boardwalk's service banner project. If you know of someone currently serving please contact us. Getting the banner created is a simple process. Just email a photo of the man or woman serving. The photo should be of good digital quaility. They should be in full dress uniform. And with the correct spelling of the name.
Professional courtesy + clear communication = good customer experience. That's how we define it here at Mapleservice. Be kind, Be prompt. Be clean. Let the customer see and know exactly what you're doing. Let them know if you'll be needing to return and when. If your return visit is delayed by a suppler or by a scheduling conflict communicate that before they're wondering where you are. It's as simple as that and as hard as that.
How many plumbing company's have been around longer that 50 years? 40 years? Or even 10 years? Here's another question; how many employees have been with the same plumbing company, or any company, for longer than 10 years? To become a certified journeyman plumber, as defined by the United Association, requires 10000 hours of on the job training as apprentice. Here at the Maples plumbing company, in Eureka,CA, we have both. Most of our plumbers have been here longer than 10 years, and most have completed the 10000 hours of training to become a journeyman. Oh, and by way, we are in our 57th year. In the photo are our founder, Wayne Maples, and 44 year employee Tiny Hubler. Both retired, but a photo that is the definition of experience.
As a business owner, and will multiple projects occuring simultaneously, I'm always inquiring of the status of projects. I'm always asking our plumbers, "when will you be done?" Often the reply sounds a little like, "I'm all done, except for wrapping up." I don't even know wha that means. But, the video proves my point.
Once again, we've added a service van to our fleet of rolling warehouses. Not just any van, but our rolling warehouse. And, once again, we've purchased it from Jenkins Diesel. www.jenkinsdiesel.com
Jenkins Diesel, and specifically sales representive Rick Wilson, have sold to us numerous plumbing service vans. We fly our driver from Califonia to Missouri, and Rick picks him up at the airport. The transaction is complete in just a few minutes and our driver receives the keys and gets on the road bound for Norcal.
Rick, and Jenkins Diesel, make it easy. I trust them completely.
After the van arrives home, then we commence to make it a Mapleservice rolling warehouse.
