Maintain Professionalism

The aim of your answering phone service is not just to offer accurate and detailed message, but to ensure that the service is professional. This can be achieved only when you hire a professional call representative

The call representatives must be able to offer friendly and quick responses to give your business a professional image. 

Attend Calls 24 x 7

Day or night, your landscape customers can call you at any time. These can be new customers or existing customers who would need repair or reinstallation. To make sure that all your customers are attended well, there must be someone to address them. 

Your call representatives must be knowledgeable about your business. They must be able to use advanced computer-based applications and must be able to answer every call promptly. 

Never Put a Call on Hold

Furthermore, it is essential to eliminate the hold times and busy signals during the peak calling times. Your answering phone service must be efficient enough to handle call overflow with ease. There must be enough staff available to answer the call.

Your answering phone service must offer great flexibility. This means if they are capable of handle a few calls during less rush, then they must be able to handle all calls during the rush season as well. Make sure, that a call is never put on hold or there must never be busy signals.

Manage Complex Calls

Not every customer that calls is in a good mood. A customer would like to speak further and explain his issue for only once or maximum twice. Such calls are complex calls and in order to handle them efficiently, your call representatives must be able to manage the same.
It is necessary that always the right representatives pick a call. At the same time, your call representative must be able to revert back immediately and at the right time.

Seasonal Flexibility

Your landscaping answering phone service must be able to upgrade or downgrade the service usage at any time. It must have high flexibility and must be able to meet customers’ requirements throughout the year.

This way, you will be able to handle your calls effectively and at the same time will be able to save money in the off-season. The money saved can be used as spending during busy times.

Call Routing

Sometimes a call is too complex or too urgent. In such situations, a call representative alone is not able to handle the call. If a call is too important, then your answering phone service must be able to route it immediately to the concerned department or representative.

The wait time for the customer must be minimal and there must be no disconnection of the call. 


Landscapers are mostly working in areas where there is not good cell coverage. In this case, it may not be possible to transfer a call directly to the business owner.

Hence, the answering phone service must be able to make quick responses and if necessary then they must send the recorded voicemail message to the landscaper. 

Landscaping business is mostly seasonal, but there are off-season calls too which keep them busy the year-around. To make sure that your customers are addressed in the best manner, follow these tips and offer effective answering service in Miami.
