LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)--  As a consumer, it is important to help yourself find the best possible deal in order to save precious dollars.

The customer is always right, right? Well, that is arguable, but, more importantly, it is insignificant.  A consumer should be less focused on being right and more focused on getting the deal.

Communication is the key to acquiring those deals, in most situations.

Let the employee know what you are looking for, what you like and what you don’t like.  Running a business does not grant the ability to read minds, so speak up.  Also, don’t always settle for the lowest price.

Experts say that the better the customer, the better the service.

Understand if you change a plan the chances are high it will cost you, especially if materials and work has already been ordered or bid.

If you decide against using a certain contractor, be honest with them and allow them to move on to other potential business if they need to.
