Having a network of trusted service companies is invaluable, both in commercial and residential situations. Knowing that you always have recourse should you need technical support, repairs or advice will not only save you money, but it will pay dividends in peace of mind over time.
There are two kinds of companies: some are trustworthy, and some are not. Unfortunately, many people have had to learn the hard way, going on to suffer the consequences of choosing the latter type of service provider.
Honestly, it’s easy to do. And most of us are trusting enough that if it seems like a pretty good deal, we’ll take a chance. We want to believe. But there are clear signs that your “too good to be true” deal might just be “too good to be true.”
Here are some clear warning signs that your new service partner might not be worth your trust:
- They don’t have a land-line you can call
- When you call, they do not answer professionally
- They don’t appear to have any online reviews or ratings
- Their online listings contain inaccurate information
- Their website, if they have one, is not very up-to-date
- Their social media pages are not active
- The technician shows up in his personal vehicle
- The technician is improperly dressed for the job
- The price for the job seems to be much lower than the going rate
- They do not accept credit cards
Fortunately, there are plenty of resources available to check the veracity of a company’s claims. It pays to do your homework first so that you do not end up on the short end of the stick.
Here are some tips to help you choose your service partners wisely:
- Look for recommendations from trusted friends, neighbors, and ask other technicians or service people with whom you have confidence.
- Do your research: check their reviews online, not just from testimonials on their site.
- Get a second opinion: if you called for seasonal maintenance and suddenly, you’re buying a new central A/C unit, don’t dive in before you’ve gotten confirmation from another source.
