Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is the North Phoenix Buyers Club?
The North Phoenix Buyers Club is simply a large group of neighbors who work together to negotiate with quality vendors and contractors for home repair and maintenance services.
Why have we never done this before?
Large corporations, insurance companies, health care conglomerates, and franchisers do it all the time. There truly is power in numbers. Homeowners have just been conditioned to go it alone because that’s the way it’s always been done. We’re out to change that!
How does a Group Buy work?
- Group Members are surveyed to find out which Group Buys have the most interest. Group Buys with the most interest are tackled first.
- Group discussion creates a list of goals and priorities for each project.
- Group Members sign-up as “Interested” (no obligation).
- Online research of project needs and requirements is conducted.
- Contractor/Vendor suggestions are collected and analyzed.
- Online surveys are created and distributed to screened contractor/vendors.
- Further online analysis of all review sites, licensing boards, and consumer bureaus/websites
- Telephone and In-person interviews are conducted with leading contractors/vendors.
- A short-list of contractors/vendors is chosen – the report is written – the Group votes for our preferred vendor.
- A Preferred Vendor is chosen and the Official Sign-Up for the Group Buy is posted.
- Each Group Buy participant writes one honest review (positive or negative) about the Group Buy and the Preferred Vendor.
