Just like you, we always try to find the best price before engaging any professionals. After getting multiple quotes from different companies, how do you choose the right handyman to work with? If your answer is the cheapest one, read on to see why that will be the biggest mistake for your home!
1. Is the quote right?
Many handymen services offer a 'fixed price' on the website but we all know we get what we pay for. Depending on the work you need done in your home, the 'fixed price' they offer might not cover all. The initial 'fixed price' quote might rack up a larger than expected bill at the end of the job.
On the other hand, premium handymen services will take the extra step of assessing the job in your home before drafting up a quote sheet with the right pricing. So you know right from the start how much your job will cost.
2. Key is communication
Just like any successful relationships, communication is key! The cheapest handymen you find probably won't stay longer than he needs to (time is money). But instead, premium handymen services will take the time to explain the root of the problem in your home. Even better, they usually will give you some tips on how to prevent this in the future!
3. Fix it, not break it
The biggest different with getting the cheapest vs a premium handymen is the quality of the work and the parts. Cheap handymen look for quick fixes; premium ones look to fix the problem permanently. They think of solutions that can solve the problem for the longer term. So they use better parts, spend more time and ultimately do a better job.
4. More than just fixing
Part of what premium handymen companies offer is to make sure that your home is as clean or even cleaner than before they came in. Talk about a fuss free experience :)
