Best Questions to Ask a Handyman Contractor
Are you insured and/or bonded for Handyman?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Missouri, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
Do you hire properly documented Handyman workers?
This will be answered when you ask if all employees are licensed. The only way to obtain a legitimate tradesman's license is to be a legal or naturalized citizen of the US. The company may employ people in positions that don't require a license, however, so it's wise to inquire.
Do you work with subcontractors?
The question is great for some industries and non-applicable for others. A general contractor, for example, will by definition employ subcontractors. Most Phillipsburg Handyman companies do not, but there are exceptions. You should always ask this question to your service providers. If they do use subcontractors, ask if they're all licensed and insured independently.
How many contractors do you have working for you? How many vehicles are in your fleet?
This is important mostly for larger jobs. Clearly a two man operation is going to build a home much slower than a 15 man crew. This is also a good indication of the overall size of the Handyman company, if that's an area of concern for you. The reason you may want to ask about the fleet is that fleet size is a good indicator of the mobility of the company. Mobility may not sound important, but it's hard for the Phillipsburg contractors to get to job sites if they lack appropriate vehicles.
Are you union or non-union?
This really only matters if you have a preference, but it is good to ask. If you have a strong ideological belief about unions or nonunions, it's perfectly acceptable to make a decision based on the preference.
