Good manners are a way to show others that you care about them. Manners also make it easier for you to feel comfortable with them. It won't matter of their creativity or 20 years of experience if they have ill manner.
The web design company should listen to your opinion carefully in a polite manner. Never go with them if they act bossy or treat you inferior.
Technical product such as websites and softwares may be outdated at any time and produce errors. Make sure that you know what kind of support the company will offer you in the future. Most companies will offer maintenance services after the website has gone live.

5. Finally cost.
