An Important Change to Our Kitchen Design Process for 2021:
Happy New Near to you all! After a much welcome break, we are back to work and look forward to working with you in 2021.
2020 was a very interesting year to say the least. We are extremely thankful that we were able to survive the COVID lock down.
2020 gave us the opportunity to review how we want to work this year, and beyond, taking into account some of the constraints we are finding in the post-COVID world. Some examples of these constraints are an acute shortage of skilled trade staff & shortages across most products, materials, hardware and appliances in New Zealand.
We take client satisfaction very seriously and always try to go the extra mile for our customers and deliver the best workmanship with our personal and professional touch. However, it has become apparent over the last couple of years that we are spending more and more time with potential clients during the design process of their new kitchens in order to design an area that fits their space, needs, sense of style and hopefully budget. Additional time is then spent preparing and presenting our design and quote, and sometimes tweaking the design, re-quoting etc. The time we take during this process has been provided free of charge.
COVID has taught us that we have to work smarter and to be paid for all of the work we do, therefore we have made a business decision that from the beginning of 2021 we will be charging a nominal design fee of $850 +GST for designs. We are sure you will all appreciate that many, many hours go into the design process. The nominal fee we are bringing in only covers 10 hours of design time, however designs, quoting etc take many more hours than this overall. Any additional hours we spend at the initial design stage will at this stage not be charged for.
WHAT DOES THIS FEE COVER?
This fee will cover an initial meeting with you, including a site visit and initial measure, to create a design, including suggestions for materials, appliances etc. It will also include viewing 3D renders in our Showroom and 2D CAD drawings for you to take away, and one set of revised of drawings if changes are made upon presentation of our design & quote. If you decide that you do want to go ahead with Sayer Industries Ltd to manufacture and install your new kitchen, then this fee will be deducted off the overall cost of the kitchen.
WHAT DOES THIS FEE NOT COVER?
The fee does not include more than one set of changes to the original design or any additional work/project management etc if the design is taken and manufactured by someone else other than Sayer Industries Ltd. Any work beyond the initial design and one set of changes will be charged out at $85 + GST per hour.
The effect of a well-designed and executed kitchen can have on your home is quite profound. Not only will it transform your kitchen and the surrounding area, it can also add value to your home. We realise that being charged a fee for what was previously provided free of charge may not be popular with everyone, but our time is valuable and if other designers, architects etc charge for their designs and plans, that it is only logical that we should follow best business practice and follow suit. That’s why we believe design is an investment, not an expense. This will help us give our clients the best of our attention and professional advice.
We look forward to working with you in designing your dream kitchen in 2021.
Our Showroom will be open BY APPOINTMENT ONLY to both the public, new and existing clients from now until further notice. We are not always in the showroom & workshop each day as we are often out at appointments or installing.
