Many people would agree that the best way to choose a reliable plumberelectrician or even a double glazing company is by asking family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues and even posting on social media!

Things to remember is everyone has different expectations and potentially different work carried out. So when you got a recommendation for "Joe" the plumber that fixed a leaking tap. Does the recommendation fit with what you need? Let me explain, did you post on social media "I need a plumber" you got a recommendation for Joe saying excellent and a good price! Now this is someone you know and trust so you call up "Joe" the plumber and ask him to do a more complex job that he has never done before because all Joe does normally is mean leaking pipes and unblocking drains. The job may or may not go right but there is danger in just asking for recommendations. What you need to think about is...

  • What is their overall experience
  • Do they belong to an accreditation organisations
  • Do they have relevant insurance
  • Have they carried out similar work
  • Can you get hold of them after the fact

The above is not an exhaustive list but will hopefully get you thinking about questions to ask beyonfd "what do you charge"

One of the things I have always looked into before taking on a business to work with as part of thebestofEastbourneis what is there background and expertise. I also as others in the trades that might have heard about them. if there is one things tradesmen know is who there can rely on in different industries.

So if you know a Tradesmen that is exceptional please do let me know via the recommend page about them as I would love to be able to over Eastbourne a comprehensive list of tradesmen for any job. To see who we have already identified please check out the Tradesmen section.
