- FEEDBACKS, RATINGS, AND REFERENCES
While it is always good to ask from our families, friends, and neighbours about recommendations, it is also a good idea to personally check out the feedback, ratings, and references of your prospective plumber or electrician. It is because people face different plumbing and electrical problems in their homes and have different personal preferences.
While some may work well for your neighbour, they might not be good enough for you. Profile the company or the person and look for key notes such as:
- Is he very professional in his work? Does he answer all questions and is very efficient in his tasks? Does he come on schedule?
- How is the company’s safety record?
- Who are their clients?
- How is their after service? Do they provide warranty?
- YEARS IN BUSINESS
The longer they are in business, the more knowledge, skills and experiences they gain. It is always a great consideration to hire from a company who has been in the business for quite some time.
