How do you go about finding and choosing a tradesperson to do work in your property? Like when the washing machine breaks down, or if you need an electrician, painter or a plumber?
None of us has the time to get multiple quotes for small jobs - and what trader is happy to come and price a small job knowing they are only being used for price comparison?
Do you have a place you turn to for advice or suggestions?
Are you more likely to trust a rating system that creates an index for you to search - like the dedicated ‘trust a trader’ services? Or do you rely on word of mouth and recommendations only by friends?
How important are supposedly objective rankings and ratings over personal experience?
Or maybe you still “let your fingers do the walking”? Does anyone else remember these adverts? Imagine explaining the Yellow Pages to your teenagers today!
“It’s like Google, but printed out on yellow paper - that went soggy when they left it on our doorstep”
