FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

1. Q: Are the contractors locally based?
A: The 1 Call contractor network has been specifically designed to provide clients with local service providers to ensure that our customers enjoy punctual service,  improved site control and the financial benefit created by reduced travelling expenses.
2. Q: Does the 1 Call service increase the cost. How does 1 Call make its money?
A: Our service costs you nothing, it actually saves you money as the contractors pay a small monthly fee to receive multiple quoting opportunities in their local vicinity. When compared to the volume of clients they service, 1 Call remains their most affordable  and effective means of advertising, Actually reducing the contractors overheads and ultimately the cost to the client.
3. Q: How many (independent) quotes should I request?
A: Although it is wise to compare prices and design offerings for larger projects, we only recommend one or two quotes for smaller tasks such as plumbing, electrics and handyman type works etc. as they all operate on a very similar pricing structure.
4. Q: I have a much cheaper quote, why would I not accept it?
A: Be very wary of under quotes which are nearly always provided by contractors who deliberately leave out various items, only to increase the cost as they progress or worse, are already in financial trouble due to poor management or performance. Accepting a cheap price is high risk and in the majority of cases, results in the work having to be re-done. ‘The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the excitement of a low price’. Benjamin Franklin 1741.

5. Q: What guarantees does 1 Call provide?

A: Our satisfaction statistics are exemplary, as 1 Call clients benefit from the ‘safety in numbers’ scenario.  With thousands of jobs in progress every month, the expulsion of a contractor from our database has far greater financial implications than the cost of satisfying your individual requirements. With our integrity and your consistent feedback, we have firmly secured  our status as South Africa's only safe haven for consumers to select reliable home improvement and maintenance contractors.
6. Q: How do I know the contractors don’t compare prices (collusion)?
A: We never advise the 1 Call contractors how many quotes have been  requested or who else is quoting. We also recommend that contractors are appointed at different times to quote.

7. Q: Are my personal details provided to any other companies?

A: Your details are secure, all customer information is treated as strictly confidential. We never offer client information to any other entity.

Johannesburg has recently been in the news because of its urban renewal projects which have started to take shape. Renovations to existing properties are being undertaken to continue with this trend.  Homeowners are taking steps to ensure that they are making the most of their respective properties in order to get the best value they can. Adding a new room or granny flat can increase the value of the property substantially. It can ensure a steady stream of income until needed for personal use. New properties are unbelievably expensive and beyond the reach of most people. Johannesburg is a cosmopolitan city and attracts people who are not afraid to take steps to ensure that they can lead lives that are comfortable and exciting. Coming home after a long hard day's work to a well functioning home is essential. Putting off those renovations can be very costly as they become increasingly more expensive as the years go on. Do them as soon as you can even if it means doing them at varying stages as you can afford. Make sure you choose a company that has contactable references and ask to view some of their completed jobs so that you can have peace of mind. Just walking around the neighbourhood and seeing all the building activities taking place and chatting to the homeowners and builders on site will give you a good idea about what to expect when you finally sign on the dotted line and start looking forward to your 'new' home in Johannesburg.
