The fact that you have to brief each one, have them visit your home, detail out a brief to each, wait for quotations, and then have to compare each; with the whole exercise being difficult, stressful and time-consuming - right?
Is there a better way?
Instead of simple online directories what is needed is a service (free to use) that allows you to specify exactly what you need for the job, see a guide price and then for that basket of requirements to be sent to a shortlist of tradesmen (ideally pre-approved for quality) who can then respond with their specific costs to do the job, for you to directly compare.
And in comparing you safe in the knowledge you are comparing costs on a like for like basis - all tradesmen are quoting for exactly the same work.
And if this could be done free and within 24 hours from a few simple clicks on a website, would that be something you could use now, and in future to get those home improvements ticked off? Even small jobs that just can't get done, either because you don't have the time or don't have the skills?
And what if in using this service none of your details are passed to tradesmen so you are safe in the knowledge you won't receive a single call from tradesmen chasing for business?
And what if prices were lower than normal, without any loss of quality, because the saving made from tradesmen not having to visit and quote is passed on to you?
The great thing about Priceatrade is you can use for all those small jobs that normally seem more hassle than they are worth - it's now so easy to tick them off the list!. How it works.
It's actually quite simple - because prices are calculated online.
In doing this we are saving the tradesman the cost of doing quotations for the work; the calls, home visits, and the writing up of quotations. This means for the same level of quality (and remember all of our recommened tradesmen are quality approved) the tradesman is able to pass on the saving to you in lower prices.
But don't take our word for it - just compare us and you will see. Our prices are often at leat 25% lower than average market prices.
You can use Priceatrade™ for any home improvement job; large or small. From a roof tile all the way up to a kitchen ref-fit Priceatrade covers the lot.
For more, go to our How it works page.
All of the tradesmen we recommend have been approved to strict quality levels, and conform to our Priceatrade Quality Assurance Charter. Also when we give you a shortlist of tradesmen who can do the work you can check their Profile page which details past work, certifications and user ratings.
Our team is made up of a mixture of online experts and managers from the trade. We started Priceatrade out of frustration.
We too had experienced the stresses of home improvements and trying to find tradesmen that could deliver quality. We couldn't understand why there wasn't something easy that could be used, something where you can instantly see the prices and the components, instead of just a list of tradesmen to call.
We hope you enjoy our service, and only ask that in return you pass the word on so others can also benefit. As our service is new we are still building out the content so please keep checking back to see what other areas of home improvement we have added.
Priceatrade - love your home™.
