Whether its calling a contractor for an upcoming project, or a service related issue, how do you determine who gets the job? For most people its price, am I right? You have asked your friends for a referral (that’s a good thing to do), maybe you checked online reviews, or maybe you used a neighborhood app or perhaps used other social media to ask around. So now it’s time to call that contractor or contractor’s and go with the lowest price which accommodates your time frame. But what if this lower price actually could cost you more? Would that change the way you do business? Let me share with you what I consider to be pertinent information which could save you major expenses, and will help you better understand why paying more for a contractor may actually be less costs to you.
Here are the things to always look for in any service repair company or contracting company.
Did you notice I stated company and not serviceman or handyman? This should be your first thing to consider and understand. Did you know that many individual businesses are not properly licensed and insured? Did you know that the state of Ga only requires workers compensation to be purchased by a company when they have on staff 3 or more people? Did you know it’s illegal to do contracting work without a tradesman license and a state business license? Did you know that many businesses do this and you need to be aware?!!!
