About Find A Tradesman
Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our site. My name is Claire and I decided to setup Find A Tradesman for two reasons:
I am a member of several Facebook Groups specifically for the area where I live, lots of people in there ask for recommendations from other members, for local tradesmen. All these members were local residents and wanted work done around their home. Anything from painting and decorating, kitchen fitting and electrical work to plumbing.
People like to use local tradesmen and also trades people that come highly recommended. By asking others within these Facebook Groups, they knew they were getting trades people that are reliable and professional, word of mouth recommendations are great not only for the tradesmen themselves, but also for people looking to have the work done because when they come recommended you know they are up to the job.
My husband is a tradesman, he is a Kitchen Fitter and has just started his own business, https://jwkitchenfitting.co.uk (his website if you want to take a look 🙂). Being a sole trader, it is important to him that his work comes from recommendations as he recognises that word of mouth is the best form of advertising you can get, it doesn’t come much better than that, plus he wants to stick with offering his services to local residents, not only does this make it easier for him, he is also then able to keep costs down for the customer. However, being a fairly new startup business and a sole trader, he is trying to keep costs to a minimum and running local advertising campaigns can be quite costly! Having a Facebook group full of local residents wanting work done makes it easier for him to find work, without the need to spend fortunes on advertising. Same for other local trades.
So I Thought ......
Why not start a Facebook Group, specifically for an area where local residents and local tradesmen can join. This website and Facebook Group act as the middle man if you like, connecting local residents with local tradesmen.
People are then able to quickly find professional tradesmen for any works they have around their home.
So there are two sections to Find A Tradesman.
But The Group Doesn't Stop There ......
I am very much a fan of “Be Vocal, Shop Local”. I always use local services wherever possible.
I hope you enjoy the site and the Private Facebook Group, please take the time to have a look around and once joined our Facebook Group, come and say hi!, it would be good to hear from you.
Remember though, when selecting any kind of tradesman, always do your due diligence, ask for recommendations, ask for references and make sure they are up to the task.
