How did you get started doing this type of work?

As a child, my parents always gave me the task of assembling whatever they brought that was a Ready-to-Assemble product (RTA).

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

I am fond of all my projects, especially in-store playsets (depends on the model), gazebos (8 hrs.) and pergolas (8hrs). They get extra love. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work? Deal with a United Assembler Network Tech first, they are the only vetted Techs certified by a certification test. Others are in the classification of a handyman with a hammer and a set of tools that maybe able to put something together. A Tech will assemble your product according to manufacturer specifications.

What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

Where do I want my product assembled/installed? Did I conduct an assessment/survey of the primary and secondary choices of installation? Do I have an electrical outlet, convenience receptacle or water source within range of installation if required? Have I prepared the area properly for the installation? Do I need any excavation/leveling prior to installation? (Outside projects such as: sheds, pergolas, gazebos, playsets and trampolines) Are there any underground electrical wiring in the area that requires assembly? (Products that require anchoring) Is my irrigation system (sprinkler system) in the way of where I want my installation to occur? (Products that require anchoring) Did I complete all the prerequisites according to the manufacturer for my project to be installed so I do not void the warranty?
