Managing Your Suppliers

Suppliers; Tradesmen

It may sound obvious, but becoming too friendly with your Suppliers and Tradesmen can be costly.
Keep the relationship on a sound and formal, yet pleasant, footing to maintain a proper business relationship.
Getting too friendly can make you appear to be a soft touch for suppliers, especially Tradesmen, who may start disappearing to do other jobs if they think that you will not be as demanding as other customers.
If you want to discuss last weekends match or the state of the economy, why not drop down to the local for a pint with a friend - and let your Suppliers focus on your Self-Build?!
