1. Understand Your Needs
The first thing you should do before picking up the phone to start speaking with different garbage removal service providers is to properly understand your own needs. Understanding your basic needs is helpful when first speaking with someone as it helps ensures that you know exactly what types of services you need. Knowing the type of services your business will require is a must. Here are some questions you should be asking yourself before conducting any external research:
- How much waste is being generated by your business
- How effectively your current waste management system is performing
- What areas of your waste management system may need improvement
2. Find Companies
Once you know your needs as a company it's time to begin searching for companies that will suit them. Start with some simple searches on Google. Use keywords like, "Garbage removal services (city name)" or "waste management companies (province name)". Feel free to write down these in a document or on some paper so that you can remember to research them later on. You can also look up business directories in your area. In the area of Kitchener-Waterloo there are several directories you can use such as: www.aroundkw.com, http://www.kwpages.com/, and others. These garbage removal services offer a number of benefits over municipal services such as being able to make your own schedules for pickup, and being able to dispose of larger amounts and more diverse types of waste. If you're looking for a garbage removal company with amazing customer service, fair pricing, and lots of experience then contact Panda Environmental today!
3. Compare and Analyze Companies
Now that you're compiled a list of companies in your area, it's time to do some research to find out if they're suitable for you. Take the time to go through and find as much information about each company as possible. Visit their websites and learn about what types of services they offer. Does it look like they have services that will meet your requirements? Don't be afraid to be picky. You want to make sure you find the perfect partner to work with.
4. Create a short list and check reviews and reference
You should now have a shorter list of garbage removal services companies to choose from, which is helpful because now it's time to really start analyzing each company. Take each one and search online for reviews and testimonials about their services. Check on their websites as most reputable companies have a reviews or testimonials page, or they should have a Google + account set up as well. Google + is a great way to see a summary of what other customers thought of their services, and it's always unbiased because anyone can post a review. You can also check out the Better Business Bureau's website to see if they're a current accredited business and what their current BBB rating is. One thing we would also suggest is to get in contact with your business associates to see whether or not they've inquired about something similar. Their insight could prove invaluable as people are more likely to be honest and truthful about their experiences when face to face with somebody. You can even contact the companies themselves and ask for a list of references that you might be able to contact.
5. Negotiate agreement with company of choice
So you've narrowed it down! Conduct an interview. Ask for references. Be sure you feel comfortable with the person you are dealing with. Ask questions. Do they understand your needs? Trusting the company your are going to be working with is very important. Now it's time to negotiate an agreement with the company of your choice. Some companies prefer to have you enter into a waste removal contract so be aware of that before coming to any kind of agreements. Once your negotiation is finished you're all ready to get started!
