06 Mar Price rise from 1st July 2018
Our annual price rise is upon us again and will be effective from 1st July 2018, to maintain and improve essential service delivery to our VIP’s. 1 July each year is also aligned with a national wage increase, which I understand is 3.5% this time. Our many rising costs, including such things as super premium food, insurances, are typically absorbed until we pass them on at this time. Our accountant recommends a twice a year rise, we ignore that and have always stayed with the one. Who wants to be confronted with a price rise on the 1st Jan, we wouldn’t. HOW MUCH? As an example, we suspect our Dogs B&B rate will rise an additional $2, to $30.00 per day with packages being adjusted proportionately. We are doing our utmost to resist a $3 rise. Please note a price of $30 for e.g. is inclusive of $2.73 gst. SUPERIOR VALUE: If you break down our daily costs to a hypothetical hourly rate, $30 becomes $1.25 per hour – V – SOME OTHER CARE OPTIONS @ approx. $30.00 for a 10-15′ visit, that hypothetically converts to $120 per hour. On $ price point value alone, we believe we will always compare extremely well with other pet care options. [Final note in price rises IF the kitty cats price rise for eg. works out to be $21.40, we wont charge $21.40 we will charge $21.00, we don’t round up to $22.00, this is why some years there may be a $1 rise and others $2 for eg].
UPDATE: Our website menu tabs for price increases will be updated soon.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support.
