“Thanks to this monitoring system, I was able to know I needed to replace my sump pump.”
“I wanted to thank you for monitoring my sump pump. Shipshape found that it wasn’t functioning at full capacity. Using data, we replaced the pump to make sure we were prepared for the next rainstorm.”
“I have been looking for a partner to help me protect my waterproofing system. Now I know that both Shipshape and my contractor have my back”
“This is the missing link in the industry. I am just happy that there is a company that does this. After spending all this money, I finally know that my system is working ”
“I chose my contractor because they offered me a new monitoring system to go along with the crawl space project. As far as I know, they were the only ones to have an offering like this. Crazy enough, a couple weeks after they installed the job I got an alert on my phone telling me I had water detected in my crawl space. Thankfully I had the monitoring system because I never check that area myself and otherwise I wouldn’t know for months that I had a problem. Because of Shipshape, I was able to get my contractor back out to my house to fix the issue and save thousands of dollars in the process.”
“My dealer called me and asked if I was interested in the monitoring. I accepted because I spent more than I would have liked to and was worried about recurring damage. After a couple rainstorms, Shipshape really saved me because my pump was overworking and you helped fix the problem.”
“This is genius. I got that sump pump because I had $40,000 of water damage. I care a lot about that pump, and I want to know that it is working and I am willing to do anything I can do to keep it in working condition. Shipshape helps me monitor my system and keep my connected to my contractor”
