Finding The Right Plumber For Me
“Know any good plumbers?”
That might be your frantic lament if you have not checked around and found a plumber that fits your bill. Many people do use the yellow pages, calling around to find one that can come out today and will take a check. Some might even throw darts at the phone book to select whom to call.
Is There A Better Way?
There has to be a better way if you are using one of the above examples. A better way would be to start looking before a pipe breaks and floods your basement. You might see a plumber’s truck on the street, or in your neighborhood, and, after they leave, go up to the door and politely ask how they liked the plumber, and why?
Talking with your neighbors
Talking with your neighbors about their experiences and asking whom they would recommend is another way. If you are having any work done on your home, you might ask the contractors if they have someone they use and trust.
With these few names in hand, you can contact the Better Business Bureau and ask if they have any complaints filed against them. You can also check the yellow pages to see what kinds of plumbing they do, what days they work, and what areas they service. You do not want to be calling someone miles away and have to pay for travel time.
After you have narrowed the field, try one of your selected few the next time you need a small job done. This will help you assess how they operate; their clothes, tools, trucks, attitudes, prices, etc. If you like what you see, be sure to get the service person’s name, so you can ask for that person specifically.
You might try two or three different companies to see how they compare, perhaps even rate them. This way you will have a backup if the first is too busy to take you order.
Everyone knows that having to call a plumber to come to your house to repair something is not the highlight of your day, or even your week. This is why you should be ahead of the game, and have one or two selected plumber’s phone numbers by your phone.
