10 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Professional Home Service Provider

There are simply things in your home that you do not have the expertise or experience to know how to do. Even though there are a lot of people who like to do their own work on their home, some things are better left to a professional. If you are considering bringing in a professional home service provider, before you hire anyone you should ask them the questions below:

1.    How Much Are Your Services? 

You need to know that the provider is within your price range. If they are not and they will not budge on price, there is no point in talking to them any further. 

2.    Can We See Some Examples of Your Work? 

This is a big one. You want to take a look at the work they have done before so you can make sure that it is quality and what you are expecting as a result. 

3.    Are You Licensed and Insured? 

This is one that they need to say yes to and they will need to prove it. The last thing you want is for someone to get hurt on your property and sue you as a result. 

4.    Do You Have Any References? 

If you like what you are hearing so far, you may want to see if there are any previous clients that you can speak to in order to make sure they delivered what they promised. 

5.    Do You Offer a Guarantee?   

No matter what, you want to make sure you get a guarantee for the work. You are paying for the service and you want to make sure that it gets done and gets done well. 

6.    How Can We Get in Touch with You? 

You want to know that the provider will be reachable when you need them. If they do not provide you with plenty of contact information, you may want to consider looking elsewhere.

7.    Have You Ever Done Business Under Another Name? 

If they have, you should look at the reviews for that company to see about their reputation.

8.    How Long Will the Project Take? 

It is always good to know what the timeline will be so everyone is on the same page. 

9.    How Many Projects Have You Done Like This in the Past Year? 

This answer will tell you how much experience they have doing projects just like the one you are hiring for. 

10.    What Kind of Work Would You Recommend for This Project? 

If you like them and are looking at hiring them, you may want to ask their opinion on the project. They may have an even better idea to bring it all together. 
While these may seem like some very basic questions, they are essential to figuring out if you should hire a professional home service provider or not. The last thing that you want is to hire someone without doing your due diligence only to find out that they are not who they say they are.
