Quality Service Is Not Expensive, It's Priceless.
Thursday Jun 28th, 2018
On average, families move about every five years and we are always looking for repair and service people we can trust. Most of us rely on wise neighbors for referrals to reliable plumbers, painters and auto mechanics. Still, it takes time to develop your own personal relationships with them.
Here are some ways that may help give you more confidence in your choices until you and your service people have bonded.
Ask around for shops and services before you need them. Don’t put off your search for a reputable mechanic until your car is on the back of a tow truck.
Are the technicians certified? If you ask to see their certification, they should show it to you and give you the number for their licensing office without hesitating.
Don’t shop on price alone. If someone’s price is much lower than their competitors’ it might not only be because they’re using cheaper parts. An inexperienced service technician may be the reason for the lower price. Ask who’s doing the work and what qualifications they have.
Do you have a new neighbor who might need some introductions? Imagine if someone had given you the names of trustworthy service people when you moved in.
