When Choosing an Emergency Plumber Or Blocked Drains Specialist

In a panic you jump online & search for Emergency Plumbers Melbourne. You notice a Map listing with several listings & the businesses location on the map followed by a range of different plumbing businesses the search engine has deemed the most relevant to your search query.

Now is the tough decision on deciding which Plumber near me to go with.

There are a few criteria that I look at before I determine whether it will be worth my while calling.

My check list is as follows:


  • Are they ranking well for my search query ( Are they in the Map results & the normal search results) – The reason being they are willing to invest in marketing so I assume they will invest in there clients as well
  • I then have a quick look at the website to look if they have the experience to deal with my problem
  • The services they provide – Make sure what they say they can do matches with what I believe the problem to be
  • Will they provide a quote online for me – Some people prefer this as they no straight away how much the damage is going to be.. Me I prefer them to come out and provide a quote. The reason being how they can quote something that they don’t know the scope of.
  • Is there a guarantee offered on the job – I like to know that the plumber is willing to back his work with a guarantee. It shows they are proud of there work
  • I review testimonials (if available) – Again I feel that if the plumber does a good job & people praise them then they have moved 1 step closer to getting my business. That is not to say that if there is not testimonials on the website that I still wouldn’t consider them
  • I then have a look on external sources for reviews, comments & if I have time any contribution they may have provided online showing they are trying to be leaders within the plumbing space.


Once I have gone through my checklist I feel more than capable of making a decision & calling a plumber. Remember you don’t have to go with the first quote you get & getting a second opinion could save you $$$ so don’t be afraid to spend the time, effort & money to make the right selection.
