Hansons WindowsDiscrimination

X

So I just had 1-800-Hansons come to my house to give me an estimate on replacing the windows in my basement. They would not give me an estimate unless, get this, my husband was home. Do not deal with this company, they are chauvinist pigs!

    They actually wouldn't give you an estimate because both of the decision makers of the house weren't home. Why would someone spend an hour and a half going over products and prices and waste their time if not all parties who are involved on making the purchase are present. It has nothing to do with chauvinism. In-homes sales reps don't get a pay check to tell you how much something costs. They are consultants who bridge the gap between the person who builds and installs the product and the homeowner so that the homeowner doesn't even have to leave home. For that convenience you pay that sales rep their commission. They also like to have a pay check and they only get them when they have customers who buy their products. They don't get customers who buy when they talk to half of the buyers.

    They also would have told your husband the same thing if you weren't home.
