Research your candidates well.
Whether you have gotten recommendations or you’re proactively looking up candidates, researching your options well is critical. This will make sure that you can make the most out of the repair process, ensuring the quality of the results that you will get after the process. Similarly, all subsequent repairs may base on their previous repair. For instance, if the repair you need now is not done properly, that may require the need for more repairs in the future.
A good baseline for selecting repair professionals or companies includes:
- A long history of quality results for many customers

Once you have selected your source of help, make sure that you get everything in writing. Ask for a contract, sign it and have your repairer sign it, and keep a record of it. This will help make sure that you have something that you and the repair person or company can consult if you run into complications during the repair process.
