How to find the right aluminium company for your project

When looking for an aluminium company, there are so many to choose from. But how do you choose the best for your project? If you do a quick Google search and investigate various suppliers websites, is this enough. Well, no! Remember it is so easy to claim experience and skill set these days. Branding can also do wonders to convince you of reputation.

As a project manager, you’ve worked hard to build the reputation of your business and gain your client’s trust. Now you need an aluminium company to help complement your offering. So, you need to be really smart about the questions you ask before settling on an aluminium company as a supplier to your business. You need to be guaranteed that they are able to pull off your project successfully and make your client really happy.

When doing your online search, you can already start to narrow down aluminium company suppliers.

Some things to look out for on an aluminium company website that conveys trustworthiness:

They make themselves available: It is clear that any customer who needs to get in touch with them, can do that. Though detailed contact details and even a chatbot. They shouldn’t act like they are hiding from their customers.

They make it easy for a customer to search their site: A trustworthy site is often a resource to a customer, not just a sales pitch. It should be a place you can turn for information. An easily accessible search function is a sign that they have lots to offer on their site.

They display trust seals: Lookout for accreditations, certificates of excellence, peer ratings. They are proud to show off their warranties and guarantees. Nothing builds consumer confidence like a money-back guarantee.

They display reviews and testimonials: Whether it is a Google reviews, Facebook ratings, or simply positive comments that customers have emailed, they’ll be proud to show this.

Once you have looked at their site and narrowed the list down, there are very important things to consider that are specific to your project.

Find a trusted and reputable aluminium company

After an extensive website check, where you can see that they have worked on similar projects to your own and have great reviews, the next thing to do is chat to your peer and even their customers. Remember that the aluminium company won’t put any negative reviews on their site, for all the obvious reasons. You can also check peer reviews on Hello Peter, Google and Facebook too.

How long have they been around for?

Having a number of years’ experience under their belt probably means that they do really great work. Experience speaks volumes. It means they know the tricks of the trade, have seen trends come and go, have faced challenges and most likely have great problem-solving skills. It’s this experience you are needing when looking for an aluminium company to partner with.  

How many other projects have they been involved in?

The number of projects is really directly linked to how good they are. The more projects under their belt, the more experience and the more opportunity for clients to review them. If their phone is ringing off the hook, they most likely have a big team and lots of project experience.

Who are their partners in the industry and who have they worked with?

Partners are an extension of any business and ultimately impact the quality of the product and service offering.  Ensure that you know who your aluminium supplier has chosen to partner with. Partnerships can mean the best of both worlds – double the skillset, experience and knowledge. Other assurances such as keeping costs at bay, quality materials and satisfactory workmanship are often seen when your chosen aluminium company partners with specialists.

Competitive pricing

So you have shortlisted a few aluminium companies, you have done your groundwork and you know that they have great partners and that they are reputable. But are they competitive from a costing perspective? A good aluminium partner knows that the ultimate client is your client. And while you need to make a profit, the end price needs to remain competitive.  

However, it is very important to be warned of low-cost competitors. The chances are high that they are using low-grade aluminium which is life (and business) threatening. The age-old saying stands firm: if it is too good to be true, it probably is.

Is there anything different they can offer you?

Do they just offer the stock standard aluminium windows and doors? Or can they turn your project into a masterpiece by adding in some experience and something different? If they can bring something new, innovative and trendy, your clients will love you for it.

Do they provide custom solutions?

Clients have unique expectations that sometimes require more than an off-the-shelf solution. More out of the proverbial box thinking. A great aluminium partner will help you find aluminium solutions to any challenge or requirement. A partner that is able to customise their offering to ensure your client’s needs are met (and exceeded), is the partner you should be looking for. At the end of the day, happy customers are our biggest successes.

Are they able to meet your deadlines?

Unreliable people are always late and have the worst excuses too. The same can be said for suppliers. This is a sure-fire indication that they are not reliable. Speak to their clients and other project managers they have worked with because it is too late once they are working on your project and they miss a deadline. This could be costly for you!

What is their capacity?

The chosen aluminium supplier must have the man and machine power to be able to help you. It doesn’t help if they are so busy and they can’t help you for the next three months. It is also not a good sign if they can turn around product unreasonable quick, as quality may be jeopardised.
