How to go about finding companies to chose from
Tips and Tricks to help you find the right plumber
Recommendations from the Office of Fair Trading and the Association of Plumbers and Heating Contractors (APHC)
Don’t take the company’s word for it that they are a member of whatever trading body, contact that organisation and check with them.
When trying to get a quote over the phone then give as much detail of the problem as you can to make it as accurate as possible (most contractors will want to come out and see what you want doing but if you have a burst pipe or another emergency then that probably isn’t going to be an option).
When taking though costs, enquire how much their call out charge is, how much labour/hourly rates and parts/equipment are likely to be.
When it comes to getting work done, make sure you have a written contract which outlines the timescale for the project with start and, really importantly, a firm completion date (maybe even with penalties in place for if the project runs over schedule), with a detailed description of the work to be undertaken and make sure the quote is attached. Also, keep notes as the work is being done as this may help if any problems arise.
