5 Things to Look for When Hiring a Commercial Plumber for Long-Term Work

Sunday, February 15, 2015 , Posted by Bradhaw Plumbing

It’s not uncommon for companies to seek long term relationships with other service providers, and commercial plumbers are no different. Knowing you can call a familiar voice and a company that knows your plumbing needs is important, especially in emergency situations where time is of the essence.

If you are looking to secure a long term partnership with a commercial plumbing company here are 5 things you need to factor into your decision:

1. Staying power:

A company that has staying power is an important consideration for any service provider. If you are going to invest in a company for the long term, you need to be sure that they have the capacity to be around when you need them tomorrow and into the future.

2. Respectful demeanor:

Great customer service from professionals with a respective demeanor is important for establishing the right type of business relationship with a commercial plumber. A person’s level of respect says a lot about what you can expect from them personally and professionally.

3. Reputation:

What others have to say about a commercial plumber says a lot about what you can expect from them. What do previous customers and other companies have to say about them?

4. Scope of plumbing services:

Does a commercial plumber offer other related services that you could benefit from? Do they offer things like drain services, renovation services, plumbing parts and fixtures?

5. The intangibles:

Sometimes there are certain things that you just cannot put your finger on, but there is something to be said about the good vibes, the relationship you build, and a company’s willingness to go the extra mile, that makes them a worthy business relationship.
