If you’re looking for someone to take care of your NDT surface preparation, how can you choose the right specialist? Luckily, there are some easy ways to make a decision. Follow these tips, and you can rest assured that you’re receiving the best, most professional treatment.
1) Absolute Clarity
One of the basic principles of professionalism is clarity. If a company cannot commit to giving you clear information, how can you trust them to work for you?
Ask directly for a clear project delivery timeline. This should outline how long the surface preparation work will take, including any potential delays. All the information about the work time needs to be laid out in front, so you can make a decision. If a company will not give you this information in full, you may face problems further down the line. If things go wrong, how can you hold a company to account without this vital information?
Similarly, ask for a full and clear quote before making any commitments. An honest, trustworthy company will have no problem telling you exactly how much the work will cost. This is not the time for vague estimates: you need to know how much you are going to spend on the job.
2) The Personal Touch
Grit blasting for NDT surface preparation is a specialist job that requires a qualified, experienced team. You need to be sure you can trust them to do it well – and the easiest way to do that is to meet them face to face. The company should also be mobile, and have no problem coming out to meet you, and providing an on-site service if required.
Your chosen company should keep you up to date as the project progresses. Good communication is key. You need to know exactly what’s happening, whether any problems have arisen, and how much progress has been made in order to keep your NDT project schedule on track. A trustworthy company will highlight the importance of communication and have no problem keeping you fully informed at all times.
3) A Proven Track Record
To ensure that a good job will be done, you need to know about the company’s history. Look for a track record with a clear paper trail. The company you choose should have no problem supplying you with documentation including certifications, qualifications, safety records, and references. Check all of these are in order, and that they come from legitimate organisations. You should only commit once you’re satisfied that everything is transparent and there are no red flags.
