How do we ascertain what something is worth?
A natural part of human life demands that we constantly evaluate our environment and make comparisons. Our senses are constantly awash with data; part of sorting the information requires putting things on a scale of saliency, or relevancy. Our complex concept of value is built right into that mechanism, and it makes sense that our higher brain functions become adept at watching for trends that give us positive value.
That was pretty abstract, but what I’m getting at goes like this: everything physical has commodity value.
What is it worth to know what you are getting? How do you know you are getting good value?
Value can be a tricky term, because no two people will assign the same value to a given commodity. Experience, personality, mood, these all impact the degree of perceived need that feeds desire and therefore value. Money is one device we use to describe value; currency itself strives to describe what commodities are worth, making value a little more tangible. Value is the measure of how much you are getting for a given price.
Aqua Valley is a prime example of a company who focuses on making prices fair and packing as much value into our competitive prices as is possible. Every price is negotiated directly, by the same people who bottle and deliver the water. The delivery drivers are friendly and direct, intent on providing stellar customer service to raise the industry standard. We provide racks for our product to make the best use of your space. We accommodate all cooler needs, including a loaned cooler while we take yours away to service and clean.
When you dial the Aqua Valley number, 95% of the time you are talking to the owner, Dennis, who is likely in the midst of either bottling or delivering water.
There are also things we don’t do to add value. We never add a fuel surcharge. We never add an administrative surcharge. Never. Ever.
We make sure that our water is the most valuable water you can buy, priced fairly and accurately for our customers across Nova Scotia. This is our standard, take it or leave it.
What is the value of your water?
