If you have a building project that requires you to hire a tradesman, you may want to take a look at some of the points we have listed to help you select someone you can trust.
Insurance is an important factor to inquire when you speak to a tradesman. Insurance not only protects you but also them for the entire building project. Asking to see evidence of insurance is well recommended.
There are so many dodgy tradesmen around, that’s why asking to see their traders license makes sense. Compare the license against another form of ID to make sure the details match, as dodgy tradesman may use a fake traders license.
Always check the reviews online for the tradesman’s work from previous clients. If there are more negatives than positives, then it is best you avoid them.
Always ask for a detailed quote in writing and enquire about payment methods. Never accept a job on a verbal price, always make sure you read and sign an agreement and keep a copy of this.
