How do I Choose the Right Company?
One of the good things about the internet is the ease at which you can share information. This can work to your advantage when you are choosing a company for your new bathroom. Jump on Facebook or Twitter and ask your friends if they can refer a company. Go to a review site such as Google Places or True Local and read some reviews. This is definitely an effective way of checking out some of the bathroom companies.
You will also get a good feel for the company when you obtain your quote. Ask the person who is quoting you what their role is within the company. There are 3 roles this person could be: 1. owner and builder (small company); 2. owner and salesperson (mid-size company); or, 3. salesperson (large company). In my opinion you are looking for no. 2. A mid size bathroom company who is large enough to do the job well, but small enough to really care about their clients.
Samples and References
While it is still valid practice to ask for previous samples and references of work, don’t assume that because a person can supply 3 happy customers that all their customers are happy. Instead ask for their 3 most recent clients and see what sort of response you will get.
Once you receive the quote from each company, ensure that it covers all items you requested. It is usually suggested to choose the middle priced quote, however this is simply a guideline.
