Ask Your Family and Friends

First thing you should do is ask friends, family and neighbours, see if they have any recommendations. If your friends and family do not have any recommendations then don’t worry, all you have to do now is get researching, search trustworthy site such as Elite Trades and Check a Trade as these sites vigorously vet the professionals they list ensuring only the best makes the cut. They then do spot checks to make sure these experts are keeping up to their high standards of trading.

Getting Your Quotes

You want to make sure you choose at least 3 professional Joiners, call each one with a detailed description of what it is you want doing. Each joiner should come out to your home and give you an accurate quote, at this stage you want to ask the professional if they have any recent reviews or testimonials that you can look at. Make sure you get telephone numbers so you can get in touch with these clients, try and get a feel for how they really felt about their project and how the joiner really did. You want to check with the joiner that they have insurance should anything go wrong, or something happen to the joiner.

Choosing Your Professional

By now you should be able to make a decision on which joiner you would like to use, just remember that you don’t always want to go straight for the cheapest one. You want to be asking yourself why they are cheaper, what are they going to miss out on or add on at a later date. If you do decide to go with the cheapest one, or in fact any of the joiners you want to make sure all labour and materials is covered in the final payment. Make sure this is put in writing, this way they can’t change their mind half way through and demand more money.

Discuss Payment

You should really be thinking of payments now, when it comes to payments your Joiner may ask for a deposit to buy materials (depending on the size of job) this is fine just remember to get a receipt. You should also try paying in installments and by card, this way you are covered for fraud. You should never pay your full amount until the job is finished and you are completely happy with the service provided.


Now it time to sit back and allow your joiner to work his magic, make sure you keep in touch with your joiner to see how the project is coming along. Make sure hes not running behind and all is going ok. Make sure he keeps you in the loop with any problems, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Before you now it your project will be complete.

Once you have followed these few short steps you should be well on your way to starting your exciting new project with your professional joiner.
