There are three things that you can look out for to make the search easier on yourself though. Ideally, you want an experienced company that’s been in business for many years. This company should also be organized and follow a checklist when repairing your system to ensure nothing is missed. And finally, they should have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Continue reading to learn more about why these criteria are important when searching for an irrigation company to repair your system.

1. Hire an Irrigation Company with Many Years of Experience

One of the first indicators of a good company is the number of years they have been in business. The longer they’ve been open, the more experience they’ll have with repairing irrigation systems. You want an irrigation company with a lot of experience because they’ll know exactly how to handle every kind of repair. Ideally, you’ll want to look for a company that’s been around for at least twenty years. These companies have seen everything when it comes to irrigation systems, and they’ve learned and adapted throughout the years to stay in business. There’s almost nothing that would stump them, so you can rely on them to get the job done for you!

2. Look for an Irrigation Company That Follows a Detailed Checklist

You also want to look for an irrigation company that’s thorough with its inspections. The last thing you want is to pay someone to fix an issue with your irrigation system, only to find that they missed a crucial step and need to come back. That can cause unnecessary frustration when you’re already worried about getting your system fixed. The company you hire should follow a detailed checklist when they’re making repairs on your system. When they follow a checklist, they are less likely to miss any issues because they’re checking every component of your system to ensure it’s functioning properly.

3. Does the irrigation company have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)?

Another important thing to look up when searching for an irrigation company is their Better Business Bureau rating. You should hire a company with an A+ rating. This is a good indication that the company you’re hiring has ethical and fair practices. These companies have worked hard to build trust with their customers. You’ll find that many of them are honest and transparent, and they’ll openly communicate with you about anything that comes up. The BBB doesn't just let give accreditation to any company, in order to get accredited by them, a company must:

  • Build Trust
  • Advertise Honestly
  • Tell the Truth
  • Be Transparent
  • Honor Promises
  • Be Responsive
  • Safeguard Privacy
  • Embody Integrity

If the company you're looking to hire has an A+ rating with the BBB, you can feel confident that they are a trustworthy company to work with.
