There may be various reasons for this, but it is usually the cheaper price of the service that leads acquaintances to recommend craftsmen and service providers from abroad to their friends. In addition to the price, the quality of the work done and the reliability of the workers are of course at the heart of such recommendations. Reports of experiences on the internet are helpful, but contacts and experiences of friends are especially valued for such services. In our globalised everyday life, contracting foreign companies is no longer unusual. The freedom to provide services within the European Union applies and simplifies the use of cross-border services.
However, irrespective of whether it comes about through a recommendation or through one's own research, problems can always arise when contracts are awarded. It is good to know about certain framework conditions when placing cross-border orders in other EU countries.
