Is there a way to save money and/or stay within or under budget with your wine cellar project? You bet there is! Apart from taking great care in the selection of products and materials, there are other ways to save. You can do this by knowing what wine cellar services you shouldn’t miss out on. By this, we mean those complimentary services most wine cellar construction companies offer. We’ve compiled some of the major ones for you:
At the very beginning of any wine cellar project, you will certainly need to seek some professional guidance. This is particularly essential if you’re a newbie with wine cellar construction. While it is no rocket science, there are still crucial details that will make a huge difference with your project. Now here’s one thing you shouldn’t forget: to take advantage of free initial consultation and design services. That’s right! Plenty of wine cellar companies actually offer these services free of charge – and WCI is one of them. If you visit the WCI website, we have a Design Request Form that potential clients can fill out. You may submit a plan to any of our wine cellar design consultants and request a complimentary 2-dimensional drawing of your wine cellar. The design features a quoted price for the cellar, a plan view, key page, elevations of each wall, and a molding plan. You also get an optional ceiling plan if a raised panel ceiling is requested.
Never underestimate the dollars you will save on free product shipping. Understandably, some clients get frustrated when they can get free shipping only if a minimum purchase amount is met. But think about how much it will actually cost when you have to pay for shipping. Keep in mind that wine cellar products, such as wine racks, need to be packaged properly. Otherwise, you will find yourself with missing pieces or worse, damaged products. Here at WCI, we offer everyday shipping on most of our wood wine rack kits. Of course, this applies to online kits and not to custom orders. Nonetheless, we guarantee great savings for our clients on this complimentary service.
Whether you’re going to let professionals build your wine cellar or go at it DIY, gaining knowledge on the process is necessary. But you don’t need to shell out extra bucks to get that valuable information. A lot of wine cellar companies, like us at WCI, offer free online educational and/or instructional services. Our most notable one is our free On-Line Continued Education. The program provides an overview of the design and construction requirements for wine storage. It includes room build out, the best suitable wood types to use, and climate control. ^_^
