Well Pump Replacement Specialist in Hopatcong, NJ

Lakeland Water Pump Co - well pump replacement - Hopatcong NJI have a customer in Hopatcong, NJ that is a well pump replacement specialist and this is a perfect example of a professional excelling at their work. The business is Lakeland Water Pump Company and it is owned and operated by Alan Altshuler. Alan does his work in a way that has created long term success and ensures he will stay in business until the day he retires. The things that I admire about Alan are that he helps people and always demonstrates his integrity. He often helps people over the phone and that sometimes means not making any money on a given job. While he might not be paid for everything he does, it certainly results in good will, good karma and referrals for other work.

I like that Alan helps me help him. When I tell him we need to acquire reviews online, he takes that seriously and requests feedback from his customers. Alan has done a great job of increasing his reviews on Google over the last year and the words from his customers speak volumes to how he takes care of business. Having a customer contribute to the process of marketing his business online makes us both more successful.

Alan has been in business since 1978 and is extremely experienced. His customers benefit from his experience as he can often tell them exactly what their well system problem is right over the phone. He can tell them what they can expect to pay for the proper solution and isn’t afraid to let them shop around. The world needs more people that are focused on providing great service to customers and that is key to profits.

I haven’t been running my own business anywhere close to the length of time that Alan has, but I do hope to duplicate his proven model of success. I am a firm believer that living life with integrity is the only way to go and that is the best way to run a business as well.

    I think that some people underestimate the power of good karma, and overlook the benefit of helping even when not getting paid for the service. My friend is similar to the man in the story here, and will always help people over the phone, even if it does not mean any immediate benefit for him. For someone like Alan, well pumping is not an easy job, and doesn’t always see as much traffic as other industrial projects, but it’s good that he is making his own way! Thanks for the article.

    Thanks for the information. I have a well in my backyard that hasn’t been doing so well. Judging by what you’ve said in this article, it seems like it’s probably because the pump should be replaced. I’m going to follow your tip about finding someone with great reviews, just like your friend Alan. Let’s hope there are others out there just like him!
