3. Oops, they have no insurance!
Make sure you hire a vendor who has insurance. It might cost you a little bit more if they do than a company that doesn't. Chances are that something could go wrong and it makes more sense to find a company that is reputable and is fully covered.

6. They got great reviews!
If you can, check for reviews on a vendor. Research, research, research! Good reviews...good vendor. It's a no brainer!
7. Become a follower of a vendors blog and social media.
