It's important when looking for a supplier you read up on their past client's testimonials, you want to make sure they are trustworthy and are experts. In terms of their service offer, it should always include free samples, consultations and no-obligation quotes. They should have in-house installers (always make sure they actually do have them in-house and they're not sub-contractors) and they should have very strict quality control. Most of all make sure they can guarantee their workmanship.
A poor installation can ruin even the best bamboo floors purchased. If you choose to go with a supplier who does not install or does not accept responsibility for the installation you run the risk of being in a position where the installer will blame the supplier for faulty material while the supplier will blame the installer for inferior installation and a never-ending fight will then ensue.
