Pricing

Our 5 keys to an investment that saves your organization money

NSSL Difference

How We Think About Pricing

Comparing yard management providers has traditionally been focused around the cost to make a move in the yard. The notion that the lower the cost, the more you save. Logically this makes sense as the P&L is reviewed. But what if we told you, that a higher cost per move could actually save you money across your organization, both short-term and long-term? Let us show you how.

Number of Hours

Most RFPs provide a total number of hours and then request a cost per hour. At NSSL we’ve found after conducting our due diligence on your operation, that often times the number of hours is at least 10% higher than it needs to be. Therefore, even though a cost per hour for a provider might be higher, by reducing the number of hours it has offset that savings.

$99,840 saved/year

10% fewer hours = $384/day*

Commitment to Quality

This is a preventative cost. Often not talked about during pricing discussions because it can be hard to quantify. Basically, if there is never an accident or any equipment issues, a cost is never incurred. By working with an organization that invests in their own operations and one that has a profound commitment to safety to provide consistent quality, reliability and dependability, the cost per move is going to be higher, but the risk of additional costly fees is reduced significantly.

Average cost of property damage per accident: $15,114

Equipment

NSSL uses all late model equipment and ensures that a back-up truck is at the ready should there be an issue. Oh and did we mention that our drivers run through a 21 point check list at the beginning and end of each shift to ensure that timely attention is paid to vehicles that might need it? A higher cost per move accounts for the cost of better equipment at NSSL, and reduces the down-time which can affect your businesses ROI, not just your yard.
