No one wants to think about the day they have to call out an emergency plumber. Unfortunately, it happens to us all. We wake up in the middle of the night and lie there wondering what that dripping noise is – and the next thing we know there’s a flood on the landing. You can make your emergency call out experience a lot less painful if you prepare in advance.
So how do you prepare for the visit of a plumber? You can’t predict when you are going to need an emergency call out, obviously – but you can have your plumber’s number handy in your phone memory, or on the fridge or kitchen notice board. Most importantly, you can have already decided which emergency plumber is right for you.
We all know that calling a plumber out in the middle of the night isn’t going to be cheap – but there’s value for money to be had in an emergency call as long as you’ve developed a relationship with your plumber in advance. Find a plumber that you trust to carry out fairly priced, high quality work and you’ll know that your emergency call will be attended to promptly, efficiently and for the right money.
Make sure that you have found a plumber with the right area coverage – and the right target market. Not all emergency plumbers cover both domestic and commercial installations and not all of them will be available to all areas of London. Look for an emergency plumber who clearly lists his or her catchment areas as well as his or her market sectors.
Ideally, you should look for a plumber who employs emergency call out teams in every part of London. That way you’ll be guaranteed to get a rapid response time when you do have to make the call. Look out for a plumbing company with a good area coverage of London and a full range of service provision.
When there’s water flooding down your stairs rational thought tends to go out of the window. That’s why it is advisable to decide which plumber you’d like to use before you get to the emergency stage. Remember to thoroughly read the Terms and Conditions on your plumber’s website before making a final decision.
Calling out an emergency plumber is usually a spur of the moment thing – so investigating prices and coverage beforehand can be very helpful if the unfortunate does happen.
