When considering hiring a traveling asphalt company, ask for local references and verify that the contractor is in compliance with all local licensing, bonding and insuring requirements. Ask for identification and note the license plate number on the contractor's vehicle. Solicit two or three different bids for specifications and materials. As with any business transaction, be sure to read all agreements and guarantees before signing. Do not be pressured into signing an agreement before you understand all the terms and conditions. Make sure all oral promises are put into writing. Be wary of vaguely worded provisions, exclusions or limitations which could pose a problem later. Never sign a contract with sections left blank. When you choose a paving contractor, do not pay for the work in advance. The FTC's Three Day Cooling Off Rule gives you three business days to cancel a sales contract of $25 or more when the business transaction was made away from the sellers normal place of business. The contractor must give you a seperate cancellation form with the date of sale on it. To cancel the sale, sign and date the cancellation form and mail it no later than midnight of the third business day after the date of the sale.
