3 Reasons To Use Commercial Permitting Services As A Contractor

From building new commercial structures to making changes to existing ones, your job as a commercial contractor can involve all kinds of different professional tasks that come with the territory. Unfortunately, one thorn in your side will almost always be having to get clearance for specific projects by obtaining the necessary permits. Permits can be required for everything from installing a parking lot to doing something as simple as adding a commercial generator to a public space. Thankfully, commercial permitting services can help you out a great deal. Take a look at some of the perks you get when you work with a commercial permitting service as a commercial contractor instead of handling this part of your profession on your own:

Find more free time to focus on projects. 

Just the act of applying for permits can take a huge chunk of time out of your already busy schedule. You will often have to spend time filling out grueling paperwork, making phone calls, and visiting the local courthouse or property management committees. If you hire a commercial permitting service to handle this task, you no longer have to waste your valuable time and energy on applying for permits and getting proper permissions. 

Make sure you catch obstacles before they become a problem. 

Because a commercial permitting service works with contractors in different areas on a daily basis, they are highly knowledgeable already about the obstacles that could come up through a project because of things like zoning restrictions or property line problems. When you are handling these problems on your own, it is hard to foresee these problems until you are already knee-deep in the process, which can definitely slow you down when you run into a problem. The permitting service will likely be able to tell you in advance what issues you can expect, and even better, they can handle them on your behalf if needed. 

Get the permits you need faster. 

The whole process of applying for a permit, checking up on the review process, and finally getting approved can be a lengthy one. many commercial permitting services offer expedited application, which means you can pay a small fee and help better the chances of getting permit approvals faster. This is because some local operations offer expedited services during the application process, but many don't actually advertise that they do. If there is a way for the process to go faster, your permitting service representative can usually find it.
