About us

What is the most frustrating thing about finding a tradesman?

The fact it is so time consuming?
That you have to brief each one, have them visit your home, wait for quotations, and having to compare different quotations, often based on doing different work?

There is a better way..

Priceatrade

Priceatrade offers a free Forum service to ask home improvement questions and even get expert advise from the professionals. Priceatrade also has a range of regularly published Advice articles.

And when you're ready to move to the next stage Priceatrade has a unique Find a Tradesman service. Instead of an online directory Priceatrade.com lets you specify your precise requirements for the job so it is easy to compare prices. No appointments and quotations process is required, prices are shown for the work from up to 6 tradesmen, and you can compare profiles and user ratings of each. 

It couldn't be easier.

Priceatrade is fully confidential so you can relax in the knowledge that none of your details are seen by tradesmen, so no unwanted calls from tradesmen chasing for the work.

You also benefit from some of the lowest prices in the UK, because the saving made from tradesmen not having to visit and quote is passed directly back to you.

Who are we?

Priceatrade was built by us, Jam Communications, a digital marketing agency.

We started Priceatrade out of personal frustration.

Matthew, the founder of Jam, experienced a highly stressful home improvements project and decided to try and make a difference for others.

He couldn't understand why it was so hard to get prices for the work in mind. Why the process was so complicated with visits, briefs and a lengthy quotations process, only to find the different quotations were almost impossible to compare, and understand who to trust.

So he built Priceatrade.com, a site where instant prices are shown, all based on the same work, and with quality ratings from other home owners and all pre-checked for minimum levels of quality.

We hope you enjoy our free service, and only ask that in return you pass the word on so others can also benefit. 

The really great thing about Priceatrade is that because it's so easy, now all those small jobs that normally seem more hassle than they are worth can now be ticked off the list!. How it works.

 

 

How are prices so low?

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.

 

 

Types of work?

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.

 

 

And the quality of work?

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.
