What is an approved vendor?
A DEMA approved vendor is a company which has met DEMA's qualifications. DEMA service providers have their information verified at the time of joining. We look for a valid business license/ applicable certifications, valid insurance and find out whether companies conduct employee background and substance tests. Please see our five star rating system for further explanation.
What if I hire a vendor and their service is not satisfactory?
The purpose of DEMA is to assemble members who pride themselves in providing extraordinary service. If the service provided does not meet the highest standards we encourage you to communicate your concerns with the vendor. If you feel it is necessary, please email or call DEMA and notify us of the situation. This will help both DEMA and other members monitor the quality of the service being provided by a particular company.
Does DEMA guarantee any work performed by a vendor in the network?
No. The quality of work will be each service provider's responsibility. Each service provider is hired at the risk of the consumer.
