Maintaining vacation rentals mean physically cleaning and repairing facilities of your rental units. Keeping your rentals clean and in top condition can attract plenty more customers and keep your rental business up and running. Hiring personnel for your maintenance services can be daunting but necessary to do because you cannot perform all the cleaning and repair like housekeeping, pool maintenance, garden and landscape maintenance, and many other tasks that require skills and experience to be able to get accomplished. Aside from the referrals and credentials, you must conduct a personal interview to pick out the best personnel for the job you have in mind.
Assign a time and place for your top three choices of service providers to be interviewed by you personally. Handling your vacation rentals, you are the one person that can realistically gauge how far your personal interaction and the credentials of one personnel can do for your property maintenance. Below are a few relevant and important questions that your candidate must be able to handle and answer with aplomb to convince you they can manage the services they can offer your property rentals.
Ask a potential hire about their related previous experience, particularly in the vacation rentals. Knowing about the vastness of their experience can make you feel at ease of their level of confidence in performing their maintenance jobs. Being confident about what they have been doing because of related experience can make them more prepared in dealing with possible problems from providing your place with maintenance services. It is also a good indication if they have worked in the renting business industry as they know where and which particular places they must concentrate on maintaining.
Investigate their bond, insurance, and license at their job. Having someone to access your property, trust and bond must be implemented and be sure that they have working insurance for dangerous jobs like repair. In your contract agreement, discuss with the candidate the possible risks and security access they are going to handle and make it clear that they need to be trustworthy and insured to be able to perform their tasks. Licensed skilled workers can be more reliable as they will be doing their job with keen concentration on their quality of service.
Payment and service charges should be thoroughly covered during the interview. Knowing the service charges and the inclusive supplies at their job can get you an idea of how much budget is required to keep their services. Inquiring about what they supply and extra services can for performing their job can justify their service charges and can even be more value added compared to the rest.
Schedule flexibility should also be considered. Even if you have good rapport and value a service provider but when they just cannot accommodate your schedule of maintenance property, then try to look for another one. Your rental business goes around a schedule and so should your service providers follow the timetable to keep your business on the right time for renters.
Always be ready for service provider spare choices when the one you currently have on your phone dial is not ready or cannot handle an emergency. Be clear and impartial in your judgment and it helps to talk with them regarding their jobs so you can find a compromise when a problem suddenly arrives.
