It is important you try to find a web page that looks as if it has had a bit of time an effort put into it. Getting a webpage to the top of a search engine requires a lot of effort by the website owner. It is a safe assumption that any site sitting high on a search engine has an owner who is serious about the business services they offer.
Do they have references? if you are having doubts about employing someone find out if they have any references, any kitchen fitter should have a list of previously happy customers they can refer you to. There is nothing more re-assuring than that.
As well as references, are they members of any trades associations? For instance, good electricians are members of the NICEIC. Good plumbers are members of the Gas Safe scheme. Currently there are no organisations that regulate kitchen installers but if the kitchen fitting company you employ are members of other trade organisations it is a good indicator that they are serious about their business.
Get a few quotations, two or three. This is another good indicator you will be able to contrast your meetings with the tradesmen and figure out who can offer you what you need and at a price you can afford.
And finally, ask around, have your friends or family had any work carried out recently? Were they happy with the work? They may be able to recommend a kitchen fitter to you personally. Always worth a shot.
