We’ve all been there before. You get home from work and find that the boiler isn’t working, or that you’ve sprung a leak in the bathroom.
The first thing you do is either reach for the Yellow Pages, or you visit Google to find plumbers in Swindon who can help. Time is of the essence and you need to get the problem sorted quickly.
Before you rush in though, you have to make sure that the plumber you hire is capable of delivering a high-quality service at the right price. Here are three tips for making sure that you hire the right plumber for the job.
Hire someone with a local reputation
We’ve all heard the horror stories of unfortunate customers who’ve had the misfortune of hiring an unscrupulous tradesman. The best way to avoid this issue is to hire a plumber with a stellar local reputation. Here at Centraheat we have been working in and around Swindon for a combined 70 years. We are Swindon-based and highly regarded in the local area.
Look for membership of approved trader schemes
This should really be your first port of call when investigating the legitimacy of a plumber. If you’re thinking of hiring a company or individual who doesn’t display proof of membership to any approved trader schemes on their website you should proceed with caution.
Centraheat engineers are all fully accredited members of Gas Safe and OFTEC. We proudly display the badges of our membership to these organisations on our website, which provide peace of mind to our customers that they’re dealing with qualified, accredited professionals.
Ask about insurance and guarantees
Any quality plumber will stand by the quality of their work and should have no problem offering their customers a guarantee of some sort. Centraheat proudly offer all of our customers a comprehensive 12-month guarantee on all labour carried out.
Insurance is also important and although it is a legal requirement be sure to double check before hiring anyone to carry out work in your home. Centraheat are fully covered by public liability insurance, providing our customers with the confidence and peace of mind that comes with dealing with a professional company.
Alongside the three tips provided, there are other factors that you should take into account when hiring a quality Swindon-based plumber, such as a free, no-obligation quote and emergency callouts.
Here at Centraheat we offer both as standard, so if you’re Swindon-based and require a plumber be sure to get in touch!
