The best way is to find out 2 or 3 recent projects that they did and if they still have the warranty. Don?t ask directly because they will never point out someone they had an issue with so check their news feed or Facebook page then contact the people and explain your situation.
Sales services impact greatly on customer satisfaction and retention. Customers start believing in the brand and get associated with the organization for a longer duration. They speak well about the organization and its products. A satisfied and happy customer brings more individuals and eventually more revenues for the organization. Helping clients install, maintain or play a particular product is one of the things that keep a business running.

Even if the products are of great quality, by the nature of the activity, they are submitted to intensive use and in the long run, emergency repairs can be required. A good maintenance contract will minimize the risks of emergency repairs. But also if the manufacturer is a big supplier, they can get special attention of their suppliers in some situations.
