Automated Batting Cages has information available to assist in the development of the batting cage. Information regarding the location of the batting cages on the property or inside a building, how large a cage would be adequate, exact costs for equipment, and supply systems and construction blueprints are available. Shopping for the "best" equipment should include calling owners of these various systems. Insist upon a "Customer List" with at least ten or more names. What do they like about the equipment and layout? What problems do they have with the system? How is the service and maintenance program? Does the manufacturer have a good program to solve any problems they have? Do they ship replacement parts promptly? What do these manufacturers offer that the others don't? Do they help during the construction phase of the project? Will the manufacturer help with operational procedures after opening? These questions should be the minimum research done for this investment. As with any commercial equipment, quality, reliability and commitment to service after the sale will vary from one manufacturer to the next.
