If you are currently in the process of looking for a reliable and professional scaffolding company, you may find yourself wondering how to decide which company is best for your needs. There are a large number of scaffolding companies around, and you may not know where to start when it comes to separating the good from the bad.

Firstly, conducting your own research and asking around for recommendations is essential. Once you have found a view reputable scaffold companies who appear to be up to the job, there are a few crucial questions that you should ask to ensure that you are choosing the right company for your requirements.

Can you provide a quote?

All reputable scaffold companies will be able to provide you with an upfront quote, with no hidden costs. The cost of hiring scaffolding will be a deciding factor for many, so it is absolutely essential that you request a quote beforehand. Ask for a breakdown of the estimate that you are provided with, including all of the services that are included in this quote. You should also ask whether there is any additional delivery, dismantling or storage costs.

Can you provide testimonials and references?

In order to check the reputation of a company, you should always request testimonials or previous customer references. This is a great way to check if previous clients have been satisfied with their services - something that is very important when choosing a company. If a company is reluctant to provide testimonials or references, this could be a warning sign and you should take your business elsewhere. The last thing you want is to use a scaffold company who cuts corners or uses cheap materials.

Do you offer any other services?

In addition to scaffold hire, ask the company in question if they offer any additional services. Some companies, for example, offer truck and skip hire in addition to scaffold services, which could be an ideal way to limit the number of suppliers you use for a building project.

Do you have experience of dealing with previous building projects similar to ours?

Naturally, you want to find the right company for your needs. If you are carrying out repairs on a large old building, for example, you do not want to choose a company that only has experience designing and constructing scaffolding for small home improvement projects. It is also worth asking how long the company has been in business. A well-established business will have the suitable skills and knowledge to provide you with the best service.
