If any of the suppliers of forestry equipment offers much lower rate then it will be good to enquire about the reputation of the company and also try to know about him from his past clients.
If you are looking for a suitable manufacturer or supplier of chargeuse à bois (English meaning is wood or timber loader) then you must follow these tips.
- Try to do your homework properly
Nowadays, you can find a number of manufacturers of such forestry equipment and selecting the best company can often be overwhelming.
Therefore, you must try to narrow down your choices by using following criteria:
- Years in service
Try to search on the internet to learn about all the required information about the company.
- Compare different manufacturers
Just by looking at a lesser quote, you should not straightway select your manufacturer without investigating about the quality of the supplier. You must compare the offers of all other suppliers and then make an apple to apple comparison.
In order to do such comparative study, you must have offers from minimum 3 suppliers.
- Discuss with your Service Provider
If you get any kind of negative feedback about any of the supplier, don’t just reject but rather call them for detailed discussion to understand the reality about the company.
Same should also be done with other suppliers and try to understand about their professionalism and service that they provide to their customers. You can also discuss about any discounts too.
- Insist on getting a written estimate
Whatever you discuss and if any commitments have been given by the supplier, insist to offer all those details in writing along with their quotation offer, so that no decision is taken on the basis of just promise or assumption.
You must also get the details about their labor jobs (if any) in writing too, so that it can also be considered while making decision.
- Before signing read thoroughly the contract
While finalizing any contract with the supplier, it is essential that you must be clear with all the terms and conditions and read the fine print carefully before you agree to their terms.
- Never give full payment upfront right away
Before you make any kind of payment, you must make sure that all necessary services that you are looking for have been obtained in a satisfactory manner. Never try to make any payment in advance.
