Now before you go and make this call, there are some things you need to be aware of. There are a few questions you need to ask. Asking questions is something that not many customers like to do. Some customers will just take the company at their word.
Do not get into the habit of doing this.
Below are some questions that every customer should consider asking to any potential medical transports company. Thin of it this way, it’s a good way to see which company will fit your needs. Remember this, your first choice is not always going to be your best choice.
WHERE DO THE JURISDICTIONS LIE
This is a good question to ask; especially, for those who are considering going on a trip. If you are going to be going out-of-state, will the medical transports company be able to assist you? Some companies will only work within their own jurisdiction line. This will not include out-of-state pleasures. Find out where the line is drawn. Based on what they tell you from this call, you can determine if this company can help you.
WHAT SORT OF EQUIPMENT DOES THE COMPANY OFFER
This is also important. Not all companies will offer the same thing. Some will offer the whole package. Others will offer just a limited range of products. Will their be access to wheelchairs at any given turn? Some companies have the wheelchairs as part of the protocol, like on the back of their vehicles. Other companies do not. Find out what is being offered from the company first. If it fits your needs, cool. If it doesn’t, then you need to look for another company. Do not let the pricing fool you on this.
IS THE PRICING GOING TO BE WORTH THE INVESTMENT
This is another important question; and yet, it’s somehow one of the more overlooked questions. More people should be looking into this. Pricing comes in a variety of ways. The most common pricing ranges come in the mileage. The other package comes in the package itself.
Some companies will charge you per mile. This can really add up if you are going out-of-town. This is up to you to determine if it’s worth it. Some companies offer the package deal. This might sound good on the surface. You might want to investigate this one further though. Find out what all is involved in the package deal. Are you investing in things that you really do not need with this medical transports company? Sometimes the package deals are nothing more than fluff.
If this is the case, the price per mile might be more of an attractive route. You have to consider everything when it comes to the pricing. The least expensive deals are not always going to bring you want you need from a medical transports company. The package deals won’t always either.
