Get at least three bids from different companies To ensure that you will have plenty of choices, conduct a canvas on all of the lighting contractors that interests you and have them submit a price quotation for the project. The price quotation must contain the scope of work and all the fees they will charge you with. Ask whether they will charge you of the purchase of their tools or whether it is already provided. Ask whether they will include the travel costs if their office is located far away from your company. Shortlist the ones that meet your budget. To get the price quotation they must offer a free onsight visit to your company to measure out the amount of work to be done.
Ensure that your investment is worth it. Make sure that you will not have to spend any more money after the installment. To elaborate, some contractors deliberately do a bad installment to charge you of maintenance fees. It is a must that the contractor provides you financing, rebate filing, utility bill auditing or honor the warranties.
Check out their credibility. Check their website and read the reviews to see if there have been any complaints about them. A good contractor would care about each customers’ complaints. Make sure also that you ask them to provide you a portfolio on their previous customers so you can contact them to validate their identity. Inquire about their previous projects if they had any problems and they were able to solve it.
Have them show you their training certificates and the technical schools they went to. They should be able to provide you with it since this would mean they are capable of doing the job. They should be able to answer your questions about the project.
Their labor and the product must be provided with a warranty. If in case that the LED light would not work after the installation, they should be willing to do any repairs.
Lastly, make sure that the lighting contractor’s work is perfect and that they will not do damage to your home. They should be willing to provide free repair if they have broken any of your valuables or your landscaping.
