  • Check References. Scan official channels like the Better Business Bureau as well as peer-reviewed websites like Yelp in order to check the quality of service this company provides.
  • Clarify and Verify. Make sure that you get your contract in writing, and make sure to look it over in detail before signing anything. Don’t sign for any charges that aren’t explained fully and agreed by both parties.
