Great customer support, reliable, good quality.

We have been going to Heron Instruments Groundwater Monitoring for about ten years now because they offer quality service and products. We sell and rent their equipment. We find that they are quick with processing orders and delivering. Their customer support is good with respect to troubleshooting and warranty issues. We will definitely continue to use them.
I've always had a good experience with Heron Instruments. They've performed repair and data recovery for me and I like their products. I also think they're extremely helpful.

Excellent instruments and service!

I have been selling Heron Instruments products for over 10 years and have learned that they are excellent instruments for performing water level instruments, detecting oil on water and measuring oil thickness and a number of other products. Their service has also proven to be supurb!
The Heron dipperLog is a vital tool in my college research project that requires monitoring groundwater levels and temperature. With a hectic schedule, being able to download data at any time, without interrupting long-term monitoring, is a key feature for me. The software was a breeze to learn and use.

Hello Heron, I am impressed with your higher level of customer support, timely updates, recent upgrades to your products and new marketing strategy. Great work!
Thank you very much for the superb service…You all go well beyond the norm of customer service.

We really enjoy dealing with Heron Instruments Groundwater Monitoring Inc. They are quite local to us and we quote their products and prices to clients on a regular basis. We've had no issues getting repairs done or ordering new products from them. We've been supporting them for at least six years. There's another supplier locally, but the prices and products are not completely equivalent, so we'll often quote both alternatives to our customers for comparative purposes. There are a few cases where Heron products are more well-suited for the customer. They very small, family-based company, so it's very easy to get a hold of the specific person you're looking to talk to there. It's a small sales team and I know them very well. I'm always talking to somebody I know. There's always somebody there to pick up the phone right away. It's not an automated system, which is really nice. They're all under one roof; they don't have multiple offices. Manufacturing, sales, shipping--it's all under the same roof, which means they have good communication within their office. It makes it really easy to get feedback from them and get questions answered very quickly.
Thank you for your excellent customer service. The Heron dipperLog is now my groundwater data logger of choice it is reliable, low cost and easy to use. I plan to continue to purchase the Heron dipperLog for all my future groundwater monitoring projects.

Heron Instruments Groundwater Monitoring did everything I asked for and the woman I worked with couldn't be more cordial. I bought more than one product from Heron and found that their prices were much higher than other companies so I won't be buying from them again. Other than that, they treated me great.
Thank you for your exceptional service…We will be enthusiastically recommending your product.

- David M.
It was my first time using Heron Instruments and I had a great experience with them. All of my questions were answered. Most of the technical specs were on the website. There wasn't too much additional information I needed to get by phone or email, except a price quote. They had some additional options that weren't listed, but those were addressed and my additional questions answered.
What amazing service-Congratulations
- Charles G.
This was my first time using Heron Instruments Groundwater Monitoring Inc. They assisted me in a situation that I was stuck in where a tape meter broke. The technician gave me all of the information that I needed in order to make the decision to fix or replace it. I decide to replace it. I dealt with a young woman by the name of Terri in customer service. She was very responsive and easy to work with. I appreciate all of her help. I am getting my new unit tomorrow. I hope I do not gave to but I would use them again.
The Heron WLM is our staff’s favourite!

We have always been satisfied by Heron's people and products.
As a business owner you made me want to make a better company.

We're a rental company and we purchase Heron Instrumentals's products to rent out to people for something like thirty to forty dollars a day. They're very durable and can retain a beating. This company has worked with Heron for about fifteen years.
I'm a distributor for Heron Instruments Groundwater Monitoring Inc.'s products. I deal a lot of vendors and out of all the vendors I deal with, Heron is the best as far as service goes. As far as dealing with issues, they are always willing to help out. They're fantastic. I've been with them since '96 or so, which is probably as long as they've been in existence. They have quality products at reasonable prices and they back up their products like nobody else. It's a good product to have in my inventory as far as things that I sell. I'm not an end user; I'm not out in the field using their product. I'm a guy who is selling it to those people. If they told me tomorrow that my discount is cut in half, I'd probably go to the competition. I have a different perspective in that way. There aren't a lot of people who have and manufacture these products. It's not like a Dunkin' Donuts on every corner. There are a few companies that make this equipment and I'm a distributor for all of them. But I always push Heron, because of the quality of their product and service.
