To give you a hand picking a garage door company, we’ve come up with some top tips.
Ask several companies to come to your property to quote
To give yourself a good chance of finding the right fitter for you, ask several companies to come to your property to quote. This will give you plenty of prices and professionals to choose from. Plus, quotes made at your property are likely to be more accurate than those made over the phone.
Avoid cold callers
It’s best to avoid cold callers. You can’t know that they are who they say they are and they might not be particularly skilled if they have to resort to calling at properties to get business. Instead, get recommendations through friends and family or find companies through our service.
Ask for proof of insurance, company name and address
Before you hire anyone, you should get proof of their insurance, company name and address. That way you can check that they’re insured and are a legitimate company. Anyone who tries to avoid giving you these details might not be the best person for the job.
Search for customer reviews
It’s also a good idea to have a look for customer reviews of the companies you’re considering hiring. These will give you an indication of the quality of their work and service. Search online or take a look at their Quotatis profiles if you found them through our service.
Ask them about their qualifications and training
You don’t need any particular qualifications or training to be a skilled garage door fitter. But the professionals you find should at least be able to tell you about the training and experience they have. If they can’t then you should probably consider hiring someone else.
