Now, one important thing to remember: Not all quotes are created equally. The premise of this website is to get quotes from people, in the hopes to get the lowest price. But you could end up getting burned! Remember the saying, “You get what you pay for”? Well, it generally holds true! A few pointers to make sure you don’t get burned when shopping on this website:
1. Always ask for the professional to come out to your home for an in-person quote.
There’s a really good reason for this: There is absolutely NO way anyone can give you an EXACT quote over the phone or internet without actually seeing your specific problem or installation / whatever. A plumbing company that quotes prices over the phone is most likely low-balling the price just to get someone out there anyway, and you’d rather have them look at your specific problem and provide an exact price UP FRONT in writing, so you know exactly what you’re getting.
2. Not all quotes are created equally.
Make sure to pay attention to details like what is included in the quote. It’s a big mistake to pick the lowest price one because it may be leaving out essential parts of the job. They may not be offering good warranties or stand behind their work (get it in writing!). Just make sure when you’re comparing prices to compare the items & everything you’re getting – apples to apples.
3. Do your homework.
Does the company offer written guarantees & good warranties? Do they answer the phone 24/7 (708) 847-7045 when you have a problem? Do they have at least an A- rating on the BBB? Are they licensed & insured, and use background-checked, drug-tested plumbers only? These are all important things to find out before you choose which plumbing company to go with.
