Request on-site visits to inspect facilities, machinery and speak with customers to evaluate quality, service and company stability. Clarify warranty coverage, technical support response times and training for staff. Establish timelines for delivery and installation. Enquire about ongoing support commitments like repairs, spare parts and problem resolution to prevent downtime.
