If the company does not have the proper insurance, the homeowner is responsible for any damage that is caused.

They may have insurance coverage, but it is also important to know that there is a plan in place in case an accident does happen.
How long has the company been in business?
Of course the longer they have been in business, the better. With that being said, this should not be a disqualifying factor.
Can they provide referrals and testimonials?

- Was delivery timely?
- How was the customer service?
- Would you call them trustworthy?
- Would you use them again?
- Would you recommend them to your mom?
Do they have proper licensing?
This may change from state to state. It a license is required, they should be able to provide it. If you are unsure of what licensing a company may need, call your local government offices.
What is their delivery area?
