HandyPro Minneapolis Handyman Offers Sound Advice to Homeowners
Elderly and single female homeowners are often targeted by scammers in the home service industry
When handyman scams are reported in the news single homeowners and senior citizens are often the victims. There are several things people can do to avoid being ripped off by a handyman. One solution is to ask for referrals by trusted friends and family members, but be aware that the contractor sent may not the same one generated the referral. Many home improvement companies can be found on the internet, but don’t be fooled with impressive websites that boast honesty, reliability and professional workmanship.
The Minneapolis handyman offers several suggestions to help people protect themselves from unscrupulous home service providers. They can start by doing a little research on the company using credible websites like the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List or Service Magic. If the handyman they are considering is not listed on any of these sites, chances are he cannot be trusted. All home service providers (http://minneapolishandymanservice.com/) should at least be a member of the BBB to show they are reputable.
Consumers can also ask for a physical description of the handyman that will be coming to their home. Does he drive a company vehicle with lettering and a logo? Will he be in uniform? If not, then it is important to at least know what he will be driving and how he can be identified.
Though the handyman may be licensed and bonded, it is not a good idea to leave them alone in the home. Take care to put valuables like jewelry and cash away. If possible, invite a friend or neighbor over for coffee to help keep an eye on things.
