How to find a trusted tradesmen?


Let’s face it, a good and trust worthy tradesman can be extremely hard to find and when you do eventually find one it’s even harder to find a time when they can fit you in!

Rated People is a business directory of tradesmen who have been rated by the public to help us see if they have done a good job for previous customers. It’s a simple yet very effective idea. To use the service, you need to register, post a description of the job you need doing and then wait for the tradesman to contact you with a quote. Once you receive the quote you can check out the feedback by previous clients before you decide whether you want to use them or not. I have used three tradesmen from this site purely based on their positive online feedback. Let’s hope we can say goodbye to all those cowboy builders and decorators….
