When Par-Kut receives inquiries for toll booths and parking cashier booths by phone and email, and through the company’s website, www.parkut.com, the opportunities primarily come from repeat customers, businesses who may have seen our nameplate on a booth in the field, buyers and specifiers who are searching the web for a solution and contractors looking to meet a specification for toll booths or guardhouses within a construction bid project.
When the initial contact for a toll booth is made with Par-Kut, a salesperson is selected to work with the inquirer. Details about the prospect’s application for the portable steel building are discussed and specific questions are asked regarding the city and state. After determining what the prospective customer wants in their modular prefabricated building or toll booth, the Par-Kut sales person will draft up specifications for a review by the internal engineering department at Par-Kut to determine the impact of applicable building codes.
During this initial review process, adherence to codes is checked , and if necessary, additions or modifications to the proposed design are made to insure the building meets current state codes (energy, wind speed, electrical, snow load, etc.). Once the toll booth package is fully developed in this manner, the Par-Kut sales person prepares a quotation for the subject project.
Assuming acceptance of the Par-Kut toll booth quotation, and issuance of a purchase order, the project will be entered into the Par-Kut system for accounting and scheduling. From there, customer approval drawings are created and sent out. These drawings are project specific and are the vehicle for customer feedback regarding layout, placement of standard and optional equipment and color selection(s). Besides assuring code compliance, following these steps assure delivery of a top quality product and complete customer satisfaction.
