Moving to a new area is always tough.
Moving to a new state is even more so.
I suddenly didn’t have any friends or idea on where stuff was. Meeting people was difficult, but finding the necessary services was harder. A small town just doesn’t feel the need to advertise their local services. It took me forever to find a plumber, HVAC contractor and electrician. Right now I am on the hunt for a general contractor. What do the locals do for general contracting? I always need a handyman. I have been updating my home throughout the past two years and nobody is able to help me. I want someone that will do window replacement, door installation, deck installation and window replacement. I also have a roof repair that is just getting worse. I could call a specific company for each of these things. I know there must be a general contractor that does it all. I would like to hire everything out in bulk and hopefully get a discount. It would also save me time. While the guys are patching my roof, different ones could be replacing my front door and living room windows. The next weekend they could add my new flooring down and then start on the deck. I would like to keep it all in one company and develop a good relationship. I just can’t find this type of servicemen. I need to ask around the locals and see who they all know. There must be a general contracting company for my area.
