We learn about you and your project. We want to make sure that Meridian Surveys gives you exactly what you need. Are you not sure what you need? That’s fine too. By discussing your project with a member of our professional staff, together we will determine the best course of action to meet your project’s needs.
Our collaborative approach allows Meridian Surveys to be productive with our resources. This efficiency translates to savings for you. By giving you what you need the first time – on deadline and accurately – your project is not delayed by extra trips to the job site, multiple edits to drawings, extra fees to government agencies for refilling documents, etc.
Does Meridian Surveys want your business? Of course we do!! However, we do not believe in upselling customers unnecessarily. If you ask us to prepare a $5000 survey when a $500 will meet your needs, we will tell you. We value your wallet – and our reputation — too much to gouge you just because we can. That is not how Meridian Surveys operate.
When you give us a deadline, it will be met. It is that simple. If you have a “fire drill” project, most of the time we will be able to help. But if for reason we cannot meet your time table, we will tell you, up front. We are not going to say “sure no problem” only to drop the ball for you. Meridian Surveys is a company you can count on.
