My only regret about hiring Smith.ai is that I didn't make the decision sooner. They've been instrumental in helping my team operate virtually during shelter-in-place orders amid the coronavirus pandemic.

What are the benefits of a furniture repair answering service?

Furniture repair professionals have to work at a fast pace. Between assessing minor furniture damage and assembling complex furniture pieces, they rarely have the time to answer phone calls and respond to client messages. But with a furniture repair answering service, responsiveness will be one less thing furniture repair professionals have to make time for.

How much money will I save by hiring an answering service for my furniture repair company compared to an in-house receptionist?

The cost of a receptionist can be a major factor in any business's decision to hire an answering service or an in-house receptionist. Keeping costs low and quality high is key, but traditional methods of addressing administrative workloads may not be the most cost-effective route many businesses may think it is. To give you a breakdown of the cost comparisons, we've compiled a list of the expenses your business can expect when hiring an in-house receptionist.

The average salary nationwide for an in-house receptionist is about $37,000 and they usually come with surprisingly high fees, such as:

  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance, costing about $11,000/year
  • Life and disability insurance, costing about $2,000/year
  • 401K’s, retirement and pension plans, costing about $2,000/year
  • Paid sick leave, holidays, and vacations, costing about $5,500/year
  • Commuting reimbursement, costing about $5,000/year
  • Child care subsidy and parental leave, costing about $3,000/year
  • Health and wellness programs, costing about $1,000/year
  • Bonus pay, costing about $2,000/year
  • Company retreats, team bonding events, and employee outings, costing about $4,000/year
  • Free lunch, snacks, and drinks, costing about $3,500/year

Total Cost in Addition to Salary: $77,000/year

If your furniture repair company is located in any highly populated city, that price may be even higher. Costs tend to pile up when your in-house receptionist inevitably comes in late, calls in sick, requests time off, takes personal leaves of absence, goes on vacation, etc. Smith.ai’s virtual receptionists can accomplish the same tasks as in-house receptionists and then some, barring coffee runs and supply restocks, of course, and are much less expensive because you never have to pay for any of our receptionists' benefits or salaries.

Smith.ai’s answering service costs as little as $255/month, with no hidden fees. Ever. By hiring an answering service instead of an in-house receptionist, your business could save over $33,000/year on salary alone, and possibly up to $40,000/year in benefits beyond salary payments. Not only will you save money, but your business will also be able to optimize productivity and revenue like never before. Unlike in-house receptionists, virtual receptionists can answer calls outside of normal operating hours, helping your team capture and convert 27% more leads. Smith.ai’s agents can also answer live chats and texts, which is how 46% of customers prefer communicating with businesses. 

Virtual receptionists can even provide sales assistance by making outbound calls to convert more leads, satisfying the over 67% of clients who base their decision to hire a business on the initial responsiveness to their call or email. With interested clients receiving immediate, professional responses, there's no telling how many leads your business can convert. With Smith.ai’s furniture repair answering service, your business can receive all the benefits of an in-house worker without the unnecessarily high cost.

What common scenarios do furniture repair businesses use virtual receptionist services for?

Keeping any business up and running is not as easy as it may seem. From coordinating day-to-day operations to overseeing overall company development and growth, furniture repair companies like yours have plenty on their plate. With a seemingly-endless checklist of tasks, owners and managers inevitably come face-to-face with issues that keep business from moving forward. The most common scenarios that furniture repair teams need virtual receptionist services for are:

  • I'd like “front desk” support, but I can't afford it

Every business can benefit from some “front desk” support. Having professional assistants offset regular administrative pressures so employees can focus on specialized tasks can make all the difference. Unfortunately, many furniture repair companies would like to keep administrative costs as low as possible, and with an in-house receptionist, that simply can't happen. 

  • Constant phone calls are interrupting work

Calls come in whether your furniture repair team is free to answer them or not. When furniture repair professionals are forced to take time away from appointments to answer phone calls, they quickly fall behind on work and lose focus. And when it takes, on average, about 23 minutes to get back to a task after being interrupted by a phone call, after multiple phone calls, productivity and revenue take a devastating hit.

  • Growing business demands are becoming overwhelming

Businesses grow and while that growth is great for obvious reasons, it can be challenging for already-busy employees to keep up. With calls that need to be answered, appointments that need to be scheduled, and invoices that need to be sent, furniture repair teams can struggle to balance their workload and still remain productive.

  • I can’t provide around-the-clock availability to answer calls 

When the work day ends, furniture repair professionals want to go home and enjoy their time away from clients, but just because your team clocks out doesn't mean calls don’t stop coming in. When your team is unavailable to answer the phone, leads can and will be missed, as over 27% of leads call outside of regular business hours. Furniture repair business owners may want to offer around-the-clock customer service, but with limited in-house staff and hours, it's next to impossible to manage.

If your furniture repair team is currently facing any one of these scenarios, an answering service may be your way out. By allowing a trained professional to take over call-handling responsibilities for you, your team can enjoy a more manageable workload and your customers can expect professional responsiveness each time they call. Our virtual receptionists can address and resolve most of the frustrating issues your furniture repair business faces. Whether your team could benefit from some additional call handling, spam blocking, or lead qualifying support, Smith.ai's virtual assistants can be of service. By eliminating the need to dedicate time to screening calls and answering clients’ questions, your furniture repair company can get back to focusing on more important work without neglecting your client relationships.

What are some of the common problems that indicate my furniture repair company is in need of a virtual receptionist service?

Every company finds themselves in compromising situations that require outsourced assistance to resolve, and furniture repair businesses are no exception. Some of the most common reported problems that furniture repair businesses face are:

  • I can't answer all of the incoming calls and messages

With a limited hours in the day and a long list of projects that need their attention, furniture repair teams may not be able to answer phones in time to capture and convert leads. Attempting to successfully tackle all of the day-to-day tasks of running a business while still providing high-quality customer service can lead to poor performance in both.

  • I'm spending most of my day on administrative tasks

With in-house receptionists being unaffordable and inaccessible for most furniture repair businesses, furniture repair staff are often left to complete administrative tasks themselves. Despite spending a large portion of their day working on these office duties, furniture repair professionals are, for the most part, unequipped to balance their specialized work with their endless administrative duties, leaving them overwhelmed and unproductive.

  • I'm struggling to answer calls from potential clients in time

Though they may try their best to answer every call, furniture repair teams are usually too busy to do so. By prioritizing their daily tasks and specialized furniture repair work, they fail to respond to new inquiries in time, leaving leads to call the next available furniture repair business they can find.

  • I'm not able to respond to leads as quickly as my competitors

Many furniture repair companies complain of the challenge that is trying to make their business stand out amongst their competitors. Providing quality customer service through quick and thoughtful responses can place any business in good standing with their current and potential clients, but many furniture repair professionals simply lack the time between appointments to do so. 

  • I'm struggling to capture and convert new clients

One of the most important, yet demanding aspects of building a successful business is finding and converting new clients. With so much time taken up by furniture appointments and administrative tasks, furniture repair teams have limited time to dedicate towards nurturing current clients and converting potential leads. Furniture repair professionals may not be able to deliver quality customer service their existing and potential clients expect, resulting in increasingly poor lead conversion, client loyalty, and retention rates.

  • I don't know how to store and track all of my clients’ data properly

Maintaining detailed phone records and call summaries isn't a simple task for furniture repair businesses who often disperse client data across a multitude of software platforms. Knowing how, when, and why clients call is of the utmost importance for any business looking to maintain and improve their client relationships, but when customer information is mismanaged,  furniture repair businesses find their client relationships quickly suffer.

If your furniture repair business is facing one or more of these challenges, a virtual receptionist service may be useful for you. One of the many useful features of Smith.ai is that our services are designed to fit your business needs, not the other way around. Our virtual receptionists can dedicate time wherever you need it to address the specific issues your business faces, whether that's call handling, appointment scheduling, or payment collecting. Sign up risk-free with our 14-day money-back guarantee and see how Smith.ai’s virtual receptionists can alleviate the problems your furniture repair company faces.

What do I need to prepare to get started with a furniture repair virtual receptionist service?

When considering a virtual receptionist service, a good place to start is to consider which areas of your business or team could use additional support in. To figure out which services your furniture repair business might benefit from the most, ask yourself which problems or challenges your team faces that a virtual receptionist service can help to address:

  • Does your business need additional payment-collection? 
  • Does your business struggle to answer after-hours calls? 

Whatever it may be, Smith.ai’s virtual receptionists can adjust their service to better suit your business needs.
