How To Find a Reputable Aylesbury Plumber

It’s unavoidable that at some point as a property owner you will have to call an Aylesbury plumber. While the going hourly rate for plumbers can be expensive, remember they earn their fee because they are the professionals, particularly in really dangerous situations.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to throw your money away either. There are numerous helpful tips you can follow to ensure you find a reputable Aylesbury plumber and get the most bang for your buck.

Do not focus on the hourly rate alone when calling around for an Aylesbury plumber. Talk to a number of plumbing companies and reduce your choices to those with similar rates. Then, you need to decide whether they have an upstanding reputation or a bad track record.

The Aylesbury plumbing company with the largest yellow page ad, the biggest website or the most commercials on the radio or television is not necessarily the best option just because they are noticeable.

Get references from neighbours who were pleased with their Aylesbury plumbers. Look to The Offices of Fair Trading for Aylesbury plumbers who are members and in good standing with no unsettled complaints or issues.

Ask about travel time expenses, cost of materials and any other “extras” you might find on your final bill. Often times, there are ways to reduce the price you pay.

For example, you can purchase the plumbing pipes, fixtures and supplies in advance at a cheaper rate than what an Aylesbury plumber would charge you. This is particularly helpful when you know what the problem is but cannot fix it yourself.

To save on the hourly fee, have a list of items to be worked on in advance and relay it to the Aylesbury plumber. That way, they will pack the correct tools and parts so they do not have to return to their workshop for them, thus accumulating extra travel and time charges.

Consider clearing or prepping the plumbing work area to save time for the plumber and expense for you. Offer to do the clean-up yourself to save a little more.

Preventative maintenance is important as it can reduce your dependency on a plumber thereby keeping money in your pocket. Clear the drains of hair and other debris. Clean grease build-up with a solution of boiling water and soap and pour it down sluggish drains on occasion.

Invest in a plunger or “snake” tool to remove clogs on your own.

Word of mouth and referrals are the best ways to hire an Aylesbury plumber that is both reputable and affordable. If you trust in your neighbour’s opinions and the price is similar to other quotes you received, go with that recommendation. You are likely going to get better service and better pricing when you mention a referral more often than not.
