Word of mouth has always been the top way to obtain recommendations, or advice from people who have experience, people who have been in your shoes, and found the solution they needed. Chit chat over the garden fence with the neighbors has slowly become less and less of a thing, more people rely upon the Internet these days, which has its ups and downs, here is what to look out for;
Forums – These are essentially open forum sites where you can ask a question or give an answer to somebody else who needs some help or advice. You’ll probably have to register with your email address, but once that is done, you have access to others input really easily.
Search engines – Search engines are great, however, they tend to favour paid adverts so, you might not see Dave and his local flatbed services advertised when you search. In fact, if you live in Kent, some top suggestions might recommend cheap van hire in Maidstone which isn’t quite what you were looking for, or is it? If you have a license, then you could drive the van yourself and maybe save some money.
Social media – A superb source of information, if you speak with the correct people. If not, then it can actually be one of the worst places to seek help as all you get is a flurry of people who either answer a question that you didn’t ask or give you information based on their personal opinion which isn’t worth its weight, in fact it could end up costing you more time and money.
