7 Important Questions to Ask Prior to Choosing a Service Provider
- What kind of education, training and experience do you have to perform these types of repairs?
Inquire if the company has a training program. As with anything you purchase, you want to know that you’re getting your money’s worth. This can’t happen if the service person hasn’t received the proper education and/or training.
Why is a trained workforce so important? Because being trained means the technicians are keeping up with the latest advancements in repairs and learning new skills. Learning new skills may cut the time a tech needs to actually spend on your repair job, reduces mistakes, and lessens costs out of your pocket. When contractors receive continued training, they also have more confidence in their work and morale in their company. Ultimately this may positively impact how the services they provide to you as the customer.
- Are you licensed, bonded and insured?
Don’t make the mistake of asking this question, but not getting evidence. For example, the service person you hire should be able to provide you evidence of their insurance policy, business license or bonding contract. If they answer that they are licensed, bonded and insured then ask for proof!
- Does your company have workers’ compensation insurance?
Don’t stop at just asking if they’re insured. That’s not enough! As a homeowner or business owner you have no idea the huge liability you may have if the service provider is not property insured with workers’ compensation.
Although potential injury of a provider is a concern, if they don’t have workers’ compensation insurance, as a homeowner you can be held liable for injuries inside and outside of your home. What does this mean? If they don’t have workers’ compensation insurance, you could be responsible for their medical bills!
- Do you have a contracting license?
This type of license is different than a business license. A business license permits someone to operate a business. But there may also be an additional requirement that they be a licensed contractor or have another type of credential.
Not all cities, states, counties, and towns require a contractors’ license or other type of credential.
Remember for whatever service that you need, determine if an additional license is required for that specific service the contractor is providing.
- Who will obtain the permits and set up the inspections?
Permits and inspections are not required by all states/cities/towns for every job. However, especially with remodeling jobs they usually do. The home repair company you hire should know if permits and inspections are required and how to obtain them.
- Are background checks performed on your service team members?
There’s a lot going on in the world. A company who does criminal and sex offender background checks on their employees is a must. Don’t let anyone inside of your home or business unless you know they’ve been thoroughly checked out.
- Will you provide references upon request?
References are important. Being able to speak with a company’s current clients or customers about their experience can be quite helpful in understanding what you can expect.
- What is the length of time you’ve been in business?
The length of time a provider has been in business can provide insight into their reliability, quality of service, experience and more.
Nothing against newer companies, but there is something to be said for a company that has been in operation for many years. Experienced companies have already experienced growing pains that newly formed companies have not. Companies with experience may have better quality standards built into their service approach.
Ask the company to tell you about their controls and systems in place to ensure they provide a quality job at a price you can afford. Regardless of what type of company you choose, ask them how they will ensure they meet your expectations.
If you have any concerns, be open with the contractor and give them an opportunity to address them.
The bottom line is you’re the customer. And you have every right to be comfortable with the provider you hire. And this means asking questions until you are satisfied. Don’t be afraid to ask! Call us now. We want to answer all of your questions so you feel comfortable hiring us.
