Land Surveyors are licensed professionals with years of education and experience. As the preparer of a signed and sealed survey document, a Professional Land Surveyor assumes a great deal of responsibility, not just on behalf of the owner, but also the community.
There are a number of factors that affect overall cost, but be aware that like anything else, you get what you pay for. P.T. Barnum, an astute businessman and writer on business ethics, wrote “The smartest way of deriving the greatest profit in the long run is to give people as much as possible for their money.” Our quality-based surveying method ensures that you get the best value for your money.
The nineteenth century British author John Ruskin is attributed as saying, “It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you loose a little money – that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”
