There are plenty of plumbers on the market and choosing the best one for the price range that you’re looking for can be tough. Luckily, there are numerous ways to narrow down your choices using the Internet and our Vancouver experts at JJ’s Plumbing have outlined some of these methods below.

Online Reviews

The first step to finding a plumber online is reading the online reviews for plumbers or contracting companies in your local area. Always make sure to go with those with a good number of online reviews and read what each has to say. Furthermore, try and get two or more references for the plumber or company.


When looking at the websites of potential plumbers, take a look at how long they or the company that they contract for has been in business for. Although this will typically be easy to find, if you’re having trouble it could be a red flag. Give them a call and ask them yourself if you can’t find any information regarding this on their website.

Free Quotes

Many companies will offer free quotes and provide the form directly on the website – this is definitely a good sign as it shows confidence in their ability to provide accurate and reasonable quotes and gives you an easy way to compare and contrast their price with competitor prices.


Always check whether the plumbers that you are considering are licensed and carry the proper insurance to protect your property. Although certification is not a necessary to conduct plumbing work, it definitely helps increase your trust in the plumber, as does insurance.
