Whether you’re planning a whole new refurbishment or just simply looking to fix an electrical problem, you’ll always be in need of a quality tradesman. But due to the increasing number of review websites, how do you know which to trust?
There are many UK websites out there that can assist you in finding the right person to help you carry out the work you need doing. Here are the three main websites to keep an eye out for:
All you must do is simply post the details and requirements of the job you need to be carried out then sit back and wait for a response from a qualified tradesman. Once you have received a quote you get to choose yourself based on the tradesmen profiles and previous reviews which can come as extremely handy as you can see for yourself how previous clients rated their performance on the jobs they had carried out previously. All reviews are confirmed by the website as true and bad reviews are never removed.
Plentific allows you to complete searches for tradesmen based on your postcode and job details. You can then either make contact with the tradesmen or instead post the job and wait for them to come to you. If you choose to post the job, the website’s concierges handle the process personally, obtaining quotes and assisting you in finding the right tradesman.
Ratedpeople.com is incredibly similar to Mybuilder.com, again all you need to do is post details of the job you’d like to be carried out and wait for a qualified tradesman to respond. These tradesmen pay the website for the opportunity to provide a quote to you; the website will then provide you with a shortlist of tradesmen where you can choose your preferred tradesman based on their quotes and reviews.
The website completes checks on tradesmen’s ID, credit status, accounts, public liability insurance and qualifications. However, do note that they surrender responsibility of what the tradesmen say and do advise authenticating their credentials before enlisting them to work.
Generally, you are able to trust these online tradesmen review sites. Tradesmen with lots of reviews provide you with a better idea of what they are like and the level of service they can provide. Just remember that these websites are funded by the tradesmen they are featuring. We advise doing your best in getting everything out of your tradesmen, including as accurate as a quote as you can get and what they can offer to the job you need completing.
