Give Your Operations Some Muscle
Should one call do it all?
Pipeline companies in Alberta have a lot of competition, but sometimes the lowest bid is not the best bet. Not all companies are transparent about their finances, ability to deliver on time and in budget, with no work to be redone, and full regulatory compliance. They may not even own their own trucks or heavy equipment. If they have to rent, then it’s just one more expense and delay. Other companies don’t do basic maintenance, while still others are basically welding companies.
What Do You Really Need?
The first thing you really need is something you don’t need – bison stuffing. Companies that are not on the level are full of bison stuffing. Put on your hip waders and grab a shovel when they show up, because you’re in deep stuffing. Yes, they’ll give an attractively low bid, but beware!
Okay, maybe this isn’t your first Calgary Stampede, but how many people have hired people that their people vouched for and ended up in more stuffing than they ever thought possible?
“Well, one of my guys knows a guy who works for Padding, Cheatham, and Howe…”
Hire a company with the experience and skills to get the work done right the first time, and that will not be satisfied unless they deliver on time, in budget, high quality work – whether it’s routine maintenance or building out a site.
Doing It Right the First Time
It’s become fashionable, in lean times, to cut to the expenditures to the bone. This leaves you with no muscle to work your way out of a crisis. Low-bid mentality affects more than the bottom line, shoddy work affects a company’s reputation. When you need to stand out, do it with quality and pride.
