5 Plant Center Counter Services You Don't Know About

At Lancaster Farms, our customers always come first. Your name and reputation is on the line with every job and with every order. We are always striving to create processes to help your business grow and serve you better.

Here are 5 services our Plant Center counter team does that you might not know about. 

  1. Custom Photo Service
    Sometimes an availability list just isn't enough. Want a picture of a crop? Just ask and we'll run out to the field, take a picture, and sent it your way.
     
  2. Job Quote on Plant Material
    Providing a detailed price quote to a customer is a time-consuming task, especially during your busy months. It can slow down your work flow. Call us with your plant list and we can get that quote to you.
     
  3. Flexible Delivery Options
    We're flexible and responsive. We're better at delivery for three reasons: 1) we have a great system, 2) our location lets us react faster due to our proximity to market, and 3) we've invested in the equipment and manpower to ensure we get the right plant to the right place at the right time.
     
  4. Phone & Email Ordering Options
    Don't wait until you get to the farm to place your order. Simply call ahead! We can take your order by phone, email or fax - whatever is most efficient for you. When you place your order in advance, we pull your plants and have them ready for you to pickup. 
     
  5. Efficient Farm Pickup
    If you can't call ahead your order (we know it happens!) we do everything we can to get you in and out as efficiently as possible. If you only need three Nandina shrubs, we will radio out to our team and they can bring up those three plants while you're checking out at the counter.

Lancaster Farms can be your biggest business resource! Take advantage of these services today. Call us at 757-484-4421 to speak with our sales staff.

Offer Same-as-Cash Financing with Belgard Preferred Payment

It's commonplace in our industry to be able to accept credit card payments for large jobs. But what if you could offer same-as-cash financing? Belgard® Preferred Payment is a benefit available to Belgard Authorized Contractors that can transform your selling approach in 2017. 

Not currently a Belgard® Authorized Contractor? The Stone Team at Lancaster Farms can help you get there. Send the Stone Team an email at stone@lancasterfarms.com to start a conversation.

Quick Facts: 

  • Same-as-Cash Financing Program for 3, 6, 12, and 18 month options
  • Loan amounts from $1,000 to $55,000
  • No paperwork - quick, easy and safe toll-free loan-by-phone application process that takes less than 15 minutes for the homeowner
  • Easy application process for the contractor to sign up for the program
  • No risk to the contractor

Getting Started:

  • Belgard® Preferred Payments helps set you apart from everyone else walking in the door. Even if you think your client would never need financing, it's the fact that you, a Belgard® Authorized Contractor, are backed by a financial institution. This gives you immediate credibility.
     
  • Clients who use financing typically do have the money to pay. However, they like the opportunity to manage their cash flow - which makes financing so appealing to our target customers. They understand the value and typically prefer that option over paying in one sum.
     
  • Belgard® Preferred Payment also gives the contractor the ability to upsell. The client may have a certain budget amount because they didn't know the possibilities of outdoor living. By giving them a same-as-cash option, you are allowing them to dream big.

This program is a gateway to increasing your revenue stream in 2017. Contact us today to learn more about this program or about becoming a Belgard® Authorized Contractor. We are happy to meet one-on-one to discuss the details of this incredible marketing tool.
