Finding the right company to undertake the maintenance in your school can be a challenge, but it needn't be. There are plenty of things to consider but doing your due diligence will help you make the correct decision in the long run. Following our simple pointers will help guide you through the process and help you find the school supplier that's ideal for you.

Are they accredited?

Choosing a company that is accredited gives you some extra reassurance since they will likely meet industry standards. It's much better to take on an accredited business than take a risk on one that isn't. Accredited companies are fully committed to their customer service and the compulsory licensing of their staff. This means that whichever of their staff you work with are working within their industries laws and guidelines, which can only be a positive thing.

Are they insured?

In an environment where risk needs to be carefully managed, it's important that your school suppliers carry a degree of burden in this respect.  Asking to see their insurance certificate shouldn't be a problem and is a quick way to weed-out the uninsured companies. Taking on an insured company will help to financially protect your school from any unforeseen issues.

Make sure they're recommended

Nothing gives you more confidence than the recommendation from a friend, colleague or like-minded business. Don't be afraid to ask for testimonials or recommendations from previous clients, the ideal being you're able to contact past clients and speak to them yourself. Recommendations from those you trust helps give you a peace of mind that you may not get if you choose a business you don't know anything about. 

Company testimonials

Testimonials are a good way to see what others have said about the company you're looking to take on. They're more objective accounts of what you're looking for by businesses that have worked with the company you're looking at. They usually go into detail about their experience so you can gain a bigger insight into what it's like to work with them. They cover things like prices, efficiency and how easy they are to work with. It's strongly advised to take testimonials into account when making a final decision on who to take on.

Can you get a good deal?

Budgets are getting increasingly tighter throughout schools, so does the company you're looking at have products and services that are in your budget range? Doing so will help you save money, which you could possibly put towards something else. By trying to strike a good balance between price and quality you'll get the most out of your supplier whilst saving money in the process.

So there you have it. These are the five basic ways to determine which school Maintenance Company is right for your school and its needs. It's a meticulous decision to make, but one you'll be sure you've got right in the long term.
