Buy the Materials.
The contractor can buy the materials him or herself, but the materials can already be purchased if it is known as to what will be needed. For instance, a particular tile can be bought if desired but the grout and everything associated with it may be left out and required to be bought by the contractor if it was not purchased already.
Having all of the materials on hand cuts out the price of what the contractor would charge for purchasing the materials themselves. This is not necessary though. If desired, the contractor can purchase the items wished for during the remodeling process.
There are numerous contractors who advertise online the services they offer. It is important to check out reviews and even consider the contractor before hiring. Be careful on some websites. Scams are always present. Make sure the contractor is with a reputable if applicable. Asking around always helps too.
Ask to See the Contractors Work.
A lot of contractors will have a portfolio of the work they have previously done. Do not hesitate to ask a contractor to see their portfolio if they have one. This will help decide on who is the best fit for the job.
