When pipes spring a leak who do we call? There are thousands of plumbing companies to choose from, with varying degrees of experience. Some reliable while other not so much, but how do we know which ones are the right plumbers?

Here we list several key factors Property Managers should look out for in their search for the right plumbing company.
Do your research before deciding on a plumber by going online and searching reviews on multiple plumbing businesses. Positive Customer feedback could help a lot regarding customer service, experience of the business and quality of work the business would provide. So ask for references.

Quotes & Bid Quotes

If all the prices are close to each other, you’re most likely looking at a fair price for the project. However, if a price is well below that of others if could be they are short of work at the moment and badly want the job, or they have missed something.

If one price is much higher than others, it is not necessarily an indication of a better work/contractor; it could be that they are busy at the moment and did not want the job but would take it if the price was right.
