Fleenor is a home security company that originated in Tennessee. They started off very small and have since grown immensely. Today, 40 people work for this company in 10,000 feet of office space. Now, Fleenor has a fleet of company vehicles that service thousands of customers in Eastern Tennessee. While the company has been in business for over 40 years, they still charge high prices compared to other offerings in the industry. Additionally, Fleenor has very high up-front costs, and unusually long contracts.
Pricing and Packages
Fleenor charges around $35.99 for their monthly monitoring fees. This is a little higher than what you might find at a more affordable company, such as Protect America. Our most basic home security system package comes with 24/7 professional landline monitoring for your home, and starts at around $19.99 a month. Additionally, Fleenor has fairly high up-front costs to get you system up and running. To get a home security system from Fleenor, you must be willing to spend about $600 for the initial start up equipment, activation and installation. At Protect America, all start up equipment is free with purchase of monthly monitoring. Consider a home security system that will protect your home as well as your wallet.
Local Versus National Companies
Fleenor is a local company that serves a regional area of Eastern Tennessee. They are still growing in size. However, there is a common misconception that choosing a local company is better. Choosing a national home security company means choosing experience and stability. If the local guys go out of business, what do you end up with? No service, no warranty, and a lot of wasted time.
Protect America serves customers in all 50 states and makes it extremely easy for you to take your home security system with you in the event of a move. With a company that has a limited service range and a long contract, you may get stuck paying for a system that you can no longer use. With Protect America’s relocation it, we make it super easy for you to move anywhere in the US or Canada and still be able to take your system with you!
Contracts and Other Concerns
Fleenor seems like a company with good customer service. However, their high prices and long contracts can be a deal-breaker for most people. Instead of the usual 36 months for a contract length, Fleenor insists on having their customers be locked into a 5-year contract. That’s a very long time to be locked into a financially binding contract! A lot can happen in 60 months.
An additional concern is the information on Fleenor’s homesite. Lack of transparency might deter a customer from purchasing their products and services. One thing that bothered us was the lack of information about technologies and products on their website. Fleenor communicated the importance of investing in a home security system on their website, which we agree with wholeheartedly. However, they do not communicate the price to potential customers. Being able to compare pricing is one of the most important determining factors for a customer’s buying decision, at least for most people. At Protect America, we provide clear pricing information on our website. We believe it is important for you to know all the information up-front in order to make your decision.
