First time getting a plumber in to fix something? Whether you’re a new homeowner or just experiencing plumbing problems for the first time…getting a stranger to work in your home can be daunting! Here at Swift Fix Plumbing, in Auckland, we aim to alleviate the stress of this process by giving you four points to consider before you hire a plumber.
Know the Rates
Know what you’re getting yourself into financially. There is no shame in calling the plumbing company you are considering using and asking them upfront what their call out and hourly rates are. This way you can ensure that you have enough funds on hand to cover the plumbing expense and even budget towards the plumber’s visit, scheduling it for a time that you know you’ll have the money if it’s not an emergency of course!
Check the Credentials
Ensure that the company you plan on using is fully licensed and accredited. The worst thing you can do is hire an unqualified plumber! It is fairly easy to see whether a company is registered or not. You can also have a look at the company’s website and read reviews online.
Prepare Your Home
Convey all your plumbing needs with clarity! The best way to do this is to have them written down even before the plumber arrives. This way you’re sure not to forget anything as talking over the phone can often get confusing. Tidy up before your South Auckland plumbers arrive and declutter all the spaces he/she will be working in.
Have your Payment Ready
In most cases, plumbing companies expect to be paid on the spot, and in all honesty it is probably easiest for everyone involved if payment is made immediately. If you enquired about the rates, you probably have an idea of the amount due, which you can usually pay in cash (and sometimes card).
