1. What are your first
impressions?
You will get an impression
immediately from when you first
contact the supplier. Note how
professional they are? Are they
friendly, but not pushy? Are they
polite and responsive? Do they
follow up when they say they will?
Are they prompt and reliable?
2. Do they have a

Do they visit you and look under
the home before discussing any

that outlines exactly what you are

also receive an invoice and a
guarantee for the work.
