Always ask the building services who are quoting for testimonials, ratings and reviews from past customers of their business. Most good construction service providers or trade professionals who carry out domestic or commercial work will have a plethora of good reviews from people who they have done jobs for before in, or around Bedfordshire.
Check them out individually. Don't just rush into accepting the first tradesperson's quote that you receive from the contractor who you like the most - and has the best smile :).
You will need to ask whether the tradesperson has public liability insurance in place to avoid any nasty shocks should you find that your home gets damaged whilst the building work is underway. What trades bodies are they members of? How long have they been trading? Is the company a limited company, a partnership, sole trader? Check at Companies House if in doubt. What guarantees on their work do they provide. Remember that with regards to qualifications, this will vary from trade to trade and dependent upon the type of home improvement project you are undertaking. As builders in Bedfordshire and elsewhere in the UK (particularly larger contactors and building companies), tend to mostly get involved with multi-trade jobs, it's likely that you may need to ensure that they have a good NICEIC electrician and a 'gas safe' registered plumber on board. Don't just take tradespeople's word for it that they're registered. You can easily check online at the trade body website.
You will find that nowadays a good local builders in Bedfordshire will travel far and wide to obtain building work which is worthwhile.
If you live in a small or remote area you may need to be prepared to find a builder or tradesperson who is from outside your local vicinity when you go through the 'compare tradesmen' process.
Ask the Bedfordshire builders, building contractors or construction companies quoting whether you can see examples of their past construction or building work. Many will have good feedback from projects that they have been involved with in the past. Some will carry photographs of their work when they visit customers and of course, some will be able to show you their work on their company website. Check around a little. Go online and search for past reviews of them on the internet. If they have showroom, workshop or offices, ask if you can visit if needed.
Finally, always get written estimates (preferably on company paper) from tradesmen who provide quotes for your work. Verbal prices aren't really worth the paper that they're not written on.
