Questions to Ask Your Aquarium Maintenance Company

Getting the right aquarium maintenance company is crucial for making your aquarium hobby fun and headache-free, and for saving you money in the long haul. Here are just some of the questions you should be asking your aquarium service provider:

Are you fully insured?
Aquariums are expensive, and so is the dwelling you’re keeping the aquarium in. A proper aquarium servicer will be insured against damage that may occur during installation or service, to protect both themselves and the customer.

Are you prompt?
There’s nothing worse that service appointments that eat up your entire day due to uncertainty of when the person will actually show up. In today’s modern age, there’s no reason not to expect a precise service appointment time.

Do you have experience with my exact type of aquarium?
Believe it or not, there’s a lot of people out there that think they’re qualified to service aquariums. And they may very well get away with it, as long as they’re dealing with small, standard aquariums. But when a reef aquarium, or an aquarium over 20 gallons enters the picture, the level of complexity of the ecosystem increases exponentially, as does the amount of money invested by the aquarium owner. Make sure your servicer has prior experience with your exact type of aquarium before hiring them.

Why should I choose you?
This is a general question that will allow the maintenance company to speak to its strengths as they see them. Hopefully, you’ll hear something about their experience level and commitment to excellence, as well as some examples of current clients and their favorable testimonials.
