At Estes Designs Mailbox & Streetscapes, we abide by Indiana law and install mailboxes the right way, by calling 811 before any installation.
Recently, Estes Designs Mailbox and Streetscapes worked with the Fishers Pointe Homeowners Association (HOA) to replace mailboxes and mailbox posts for their community in Fishers, Indiana. Sentry Management, an operational leadership firm that provides services to homeowner and condominium associations, suggested that the Fishers Pointe community work with us as their community mailboxes were beginning to look worn down, which ultimately negatively affected their community appearance.
“Improvement” has become one of the most used buzzwords in the business world. With almost every company striving for improvement, the definition of improvement has become more and more ambiguous. After all, how do you define and track improvement? Improvement is not just another buzzword to us; at our parent company Estes Design and Manufacturing, it is one of the four pillars of the company philosophy, and it is apparent through measurable goals that we set and monitor. In this post, we will discuss what continuous improvement means to Estes Designs Mailbox & Streetscapes, and how we achieve our improvement goals through: 1) the utilization of a business management software, Jobber, which makes us more efficient; and 2) the importance of ongoing product development.
Everyone loves the look of a freshly manicured and trimmed lawn. Unfortunately, sometimes our mailbox posts, fences and swing sets take a beating in the process. Most of us have nicked the edge of a mailbox post, fence post, or swing set while tending to the grass or landscaping. But what if you didn’t have to worry about hitting those posts anymore (Chicago Bears fans, listen up!)? At Estes Designs Mailboxes and Streetscapes, we are constantly looking for ways for our customers to get more value from our products. You may have thought that the trimmer guards we produce are designed for the sole purpose of protecting mailboxes, but we are here to tell you otherwise!
At Estes Designs Mailbox and Streetscapes, we are always looking to create innovative products. Our parent company, Estes Design and Manufacturing, recognizes creative, innovative thinking as a core pillar of its business philosophy, and we have made innovation part of our core values as well. We understand innovation is proven through new product releases and design improvements, which is why we are pleased to share a few of the items in our product development pipeline:
· New copper, pre-bent Trimmer Guards
· Mailbox posts that are made out of 100% recycled goods
· New top quality Estes T3 custom mailbox
All of these innovative, new Estes Designs products are coming soon!
In the title sequence of the original 1966 Star Trek television show, Captain Kirk proudly declares, “To boldly go where no man has gone before”. While Estes Design and Streetscapes is in no ways breaking the barriers of the galactic frontier like Captain Kirk and his crew aboard the USS Enterprise, we are, however, making waves of our own within the mailbox industry. How you ask?
Kick back to school to the curb
The first day of school is here for the majority of Indiana and if you are a parent, you are likely relieved to know that your children will be clocking in more study time and less Fortnite drops this fall. School might mean more freedom for parents during the day but, it also means that your curb is going to receive a lot more traffic from you, your children, and the big yellow bus. So, what should you look out for as you and your children stand patiently at the bus stop?
Why Jobber and how does it empower you?
At Estes, our highest priority is customer service, especially when mailbox installation is one of our key differentiators in the central Indiana region. Changing our processes and implementing new technology is one way we are reaching that goal. As a B2C business, it is our job to make mailbox orders and installation scheduling accessible at the push-of-a-button for today’s virtually active consumers. One of the ways we are making this happen is by replacing our outdated Customer Social Responsibility (CSR) platform with Jobber, a platform that has already improved all areas of our customer’s experience.
When is the last time you replaced your mailbox?
This is the question that Hickory Meadows had to answer for 163 of its residents this summer. Faced with a dilemma of this magnitude, they knew they weren’t just buying mailboxes. Rather, they had to find a partner that would have the capability and integrity to get the project done and not cut any corners. So when they approached our Indianapolis based mailbox business, we jumped at the challenge to spearhead the project.
