How To Choose The Right Plumber

When you have a plumbing emergency, the last thing you’ll want to be doing is researching and comparing different plumbers. However, picking the right plumber will ensure that the job is completed to a high standard, and at the right price. So, next time you need a plumber, be sure to ask them the following questions to guarantee that your plumbing needs are completed safely and professionally, with no hidden costs.

1) Are They Licensed?

The first thing you should be asking when hiring a plumber is if are licensed to work in Australia as a plumber. This is because, if you hire an unlicensed plumber and something goes wrong, they will not be covered by insurance, and the fact that the plumber does not hold a current license may also void your home insurance policy and appliance warranty.

Conversely, hiring a fully licensed plumber will ensure that, on the off chance that something goes wrong in the future, the company’s insurance will cover installation and damage. So always ask to see their license!!!

Sun City have fully licensed plumbers and gas fitters who also have restricted electrical licenses to carry out any electrical work required for repairs and replacements on most hot water heaters.

2) Are They Fully Insured?

Once you have confirmed that your plumber holds the required licenses, you will need to check that they are insured. As mentioned above, this protects both you and the plumber in case of an accident. If you’re looking for a fully insured plumber that you can rely on, call Sun City today on 1300 728 122.

3) Are There Any Hidden Costs?

Many plumbing and hot water companies will give you a low quote to get the job and then, once the job is completed, hit you with their hidden costs. However, trustworthy plumbers will provide you with a transparent quote that is as accurate as possible, with no hidden fees.

4) How Much Experience Do They Have?
