Easy way to find out if the competitors mean it, or are just more marketing
smoke --  see if they'll sign a contract with the fixed turn-up date, *AND*
a, say, 500 Euro/day penalty (payable in cash, not just a service credit) for
each day they miss the promised date.  If they won't sign that contract, ask
"why not?"  The non-answers for that can be really entertaining.  <wry grin>
