Having moved to a new area and struggling to find local recommendations I have used mybuilder.com several times for various jobs. Initially I was a little sceptical of using such sites but the visibility of positive and constructive feedback, including the way the trades can respond to this, reassured that this and the trades using this site could be trusted.
I have not been disappointed. For electrical work which became increasingly tricky to resolve through this site I was able to find an excellent Electrician who worked tirelessly to resolve the issues and complete the work. I was also able to find a decorator with amazing attention to detail and quality who transformed 4 rooms and hall/landing.
I've used MyBuilder for a few jobs, from small fixes to full house renovations and I can't speak more highly of it. In fact I'd say our renovations wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for this site.
I have used MyBuilder several times now after a previous bad experiance with a tradesman and have nothing but good things to say about the people who did the work.
Takes the gambling out of choosing tradesmem and would recommend to anyone.
I have used My Builder several times and the site is excellent as it gives you loads of options for finding recommended local tradespeople. It is nice to be able to get a few quotes for a job and have the vetting already done for you. The tradespeople we have found have been of a high calibre and I will certainly continue to use My Builder for future jobs.
Used My Builder several times now, not been let down once. All done good jobs and met the requirement. Definetly recommended.
my husband has no idea about DIY, so when I discovered this website I was a bit sceptical. I've used it 4 times now and cant believe how easy it is to find top quality tradesmen at very reasonable rates. I can read there reviews and see their previous work too. Fantastic!
I have used mybuilder.com a few times now and I have been very happy overall. The work which has been completed has been of a good standard and the tradespeople have been friendly and given reasonable quotes/prices.
This is now my first port of call, with online searches now second and the phonebook etc last. Some smaller jobs appear to lack interest unfortunately, however, I have now had shelving installed and a toilet syphon changed, plus quotes for larger re-modelling work and have always found the people who respond to my jobs to be knowledgeable and competent.
There also appears to be a good selection of local workers, which offers choice and the ability to obtain a few quotes for comparison.
I have used the site at least 10 times to get tradesmen over the last 5 years and continue to do so. Throw away your yellow directories and forget phoning around - post your job (this takes around 30 seconds) and wait for relevant tradesmen to get back to you. No joy (this very rarely happens) post another job - it costs nothing! I cannot express enough how good this site is. You no longer have to wait to start doing any work on your property; get onto the site and have a look. Once a tradesman has offered to give you a quote you then have the opportunity to look at the feedback they've received from previous customers to see how they've performed on other jobs. As all of their feedback is there for everyone to see it's in their best interests to do a good job and provide reasonable quotes. You'll routinely find that tradesmen have 100% positive reasons. As they have to take a paid subscription to use the site they are motivated to do an excellent job. I would definitely recommend that you use this site. It's the only place where I've found honest hard working family friendly individuals who are not looking to take advantage of you! From tiny little hallway paint jobs to building extensions I wouldn't look elsewhere personally. Oh and whether you're loaded or on a budget (yours truly) you can be safe in the knowledge that you're not going to get fleeced. Use it.
The only place to look for tradespeople
I have never used the yellow pages since this site. I have had plastering, painting, plumbing all hired from them. Easy to use and check credentials via user reviews. Stop paying through your nose and hire from here.
A great easy-to-use website, before My Builder I had some poor experiences trying to hire tradesmen to do work on my home - some builders didn''t bother to give estimates - some didn''t bother to turn up to view job. Hiring tradesmen through My Builder is much less stressful - and a good job done earns a good review and further trade
Finding reliable workmen is a pain in the butt, but this site really helps. Not everyone on it is my cup of tea, but the reviews are reliable and being able to specify the need for a quote means the builder can take it or leave it. I find it v useful.
My Builder website is easy to use, quick and efficient - you can read the reviews of the various builders before you make your mind up. It lets you know how far away they are and lets you create a short list from which you can then select the best. My Builder is a brilliant way of minimising the stress and worry of being ripped off in Britain today. It puts you in control and there is always the fact that you can write a review following the job completion that ensures the task is always done well.
I've used mybuilder.com for a number of projects around my house. I bought an 18th century cottage last year - it was dilapidated and needed a lot of things doing to it. I posted the jobs and let teh website do the rest. Its a great way to find tradesmen and saves you the hassle of chasing them - they come straight to you. You can chose who to ask to quote from all the interested parties - so no cold calling.Have recommended it to a number of friends and have used it many times - still very happy.
I've used Mybuilder.com for a variety of building, plastering, electrical and decoration jobs and have always been very satisfied with the tradespeople and the quality of the work done.
Offering a job up for local tradespeople to quote on is excellent as you only deal with people who are interested and available for the job. It speeds up the process no end. I also like being able to read references and recommendations from other clients and view the tradespeople's qualifications and accreditations. This all makes it easy to trust the people you are inviting to your home.
The tradespeople I have employed have, without exception, been lovely as well as highly skilled and professional and I have had no hesitation in leaving positive reviews for them.
Mybuilder.com has changed the way I feel about having work done on my house and I can't imagine employing anyone without this site now.
