Do they have a website?
In this day and age, where every business (no matter how big or small) is aware of the importance of going digital, you should check whether the garage door company you are considering to handover the task of fixing your door has a website or not. Now, we are not asking you to see how user-friendly or aesthetically pleasing the website is, because not all small businesses have enough resources to get it done. But having a website shows that they mean business.
Are there any red flags?
Okay! The company you are considering has a website. Now it’s time to look for the critical information – absence of which should raise a red flag.
So what are that critical information you need to look for?
- Do they have a physical address?
- Do they have a local phone number?
- Is there anything too good to be true?
Do they have a physical address?
Having a physical address again shows that the expert actually mean business and is here to grow. There are many companies – who on the pretext of offering you certain services would collect your personal information only to later on sell it or use it for marketing purposes. If the company doesn’t have a physical address, then run away.
But what if a bogus company also has a physical address?
In this situation, you don’t have to drive all the way to that location. Use Google’s street view to confirm before proceeding any further.
Do they have a local phone number?
If the company has a toll free number, then consider it as a red flag. Unless you want to hire repair services of some large company manufacturing automatic garage doors in Brisbane or some other part of the country. Moreover, a local number or just a mobile number with local service providers ensures that the person you are talking to is actually local or not some scammers with phony accent sitting in some other part of the world trying to rip you off your money.
Is there anything too good to be true?
See if the offers are too exciting to be true. Like AU$ 1 per month for garage repair if you sign-up for lifetime subscription with anytime cancellation policy. Well, you might consider this as a great offer, but believe us when we say – there’s no such thing as lifetime garage door maintenance for just AU$ 1 a month. Obviously, the company will have to pay employees, cover repair cost, replace worn out parts and that has a cost. That’s just an example to give you an idea how to spot unrealistic offers.
Are people saying good about the company?
While it is way too easy to fabricate testimonials, but if you use Google’s review section or social media to ask about a particular company you will surely get the right testimonials. If people are saying good about a company and there’s no negative feedback, then go for it.
Once you have all the answers you’ll know what to do. If you want roller door repair Brisbane or nearby areas or garage door openers in Sydney – you just have to follow the process and get answers of all these questions.
