How to Hire Good Maintenance People

If you have something broken at home like an electrical outlet or a malfunctioning washing machine or broken pipe line, you need good maintenance people to handle those essential maintenance problems. Of course you can try to do a DIY but if you are a totally inexperienced with doing any maintenance work or really can’t handle tools and don’t know the difference of a flat-nose versus a philips screw, then you really don’t have any business fixing stuff on your own. So, why not look for a maintenance company to handle all your essential maintenance, carpentry, and event technical maintenance needs?

How to Hire Good Maintenance People

So if you are on the look out for good maintenance people, first, you have to check their website. Yes, it sounds shallow and not a good basis for judging the capabilities of the maintenance people, but most of the time if the maintenance company has a neat, orderly, and functioning website complete with contact numbers and email, then they are also serious with their business and take care of their customers. That’s because the website is the business’ first point of contact with potential customers so if you can see that they maintain their website properly, it shows you also that they are thinking about the many ways that customers may want to contact them for a job and nowadays, every one is on the internet so they also know they could get many contacts and projects if they keep their website updated.

Aside from a good and functioning website, you also want a maintenance company who has a good reputation and many years of experience. After you have seen a potential maintenance company you would like to hire, do a Google search on them and read reviews about them either on Facebook or Google Review. The people giving those review are real customers and may give you a glimpse of how the maintenance company treats their customers and if they can handle specific maintenance jobs like property maintenance, technical maintenance, electrical repairs, etc. You can get a better opinion about the maintenance company just by reading the many reviews of their previous customers. These reviews can also serve as a warning on how to deal with the maintenance company like if they have hidden charges or have disrespectful maintenance people.

When you have finally found a good choice for a maintenance company, the next thing you should do is call your prospects and explain to them what you need fixed. Base on your conversation with their receptionist or any technician in their company, you can have a better feel of how they are as real people dealing with customers and job orders. If they are polite and answer your questions with patience, then they are the good choice for your maintenance project. If they are very rude or seem to not know the answer to your questions, then they also probably don’t really know what their doing and you need to look somewhere else.
