Customers always ask for home repair referrals at their local hardware store

Cole Hardware, located in San Francisco, announces they are celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of their Home Repair Referral Service Program this September.

“Customers always ask for home repair referrals at their local hardware store,” says Rick Karp, President of Cole Hardware. “Establishing a legitimate home repair referral service so that we could pre-screen trades people and only refer the best, seemed imperative.”

As a result, in 1996, Cole Hardware announced the new Home Repair Referral Program in its monthly newsletter, The Hardware Hotline.

“We didn’t know what to expect. But when the paper hit the streets, the phones began ringing! Early on we were getting about ten requests from customers a day. Fast forward to today, we’re kept busy referring 40-50 jobs per day,” Karp added.

Their customers love the Home Repair Referral Program as Cole Hardware stands behind each trades person with its satisfaction guaranteed motto. Trades people love the program as well as it keeps them busy and working.

To celebrate the program’s anniversary, this September Cole Hardware will be offering a free home security check for San Francisco residents conducted by their excellent locksmith, Marc Estoque. Mark has worked with Cole Hardware since the inception of the Home Repair Referral Service. He is an expert at repairing locks, rekeying locks, and, of course, home security. He is on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. “Call for scheduled work or for emergencies,” says Marc.

“Our 15th anniversary is an important milestone” says Larry Karp, the Home Repair Referral Service Manager. “Every day, people from all over the City call or email to get our referrals for the best plumbers, contractors, electricians, painters and more.” The Home Repair Referral Service is, according to Rick Karp, the golden handshake of customer service.

In addition to exclusively offering Benjamin Moore paint, they carry a range of items designed to help complete all types of home repair and home improvement needs.
