Trades Site Creates £220M Worth of Jobs
MyJobQuote, a website that allows homeowners to easily source local tradespeople, has received more than 190,000 quotes this year, generating over £220 million worth of jobs for tradespeople. It connects homeowners looking for home improvement projects to qualified, local tradespeople who are right for the job.
After the users enter the details of the job, the platform matches the customer with the right local tradesperson across 32 categories, 200 sub categories and more than 13,000 verified trades, who will then get in touch in order to complete the job. The 32 categories and 200 sub categories include, but are not limited to: bathroom, builders, carpenters & joiners, cleaners, electricians, heating engineers, kitchen, plasterers and plumbers.
The platform offers complete transparency and lets homeowners find a tradesman without having to search for hours online and in the telephone book. Once trades are sourced by the site, the user is able to choose the tradesperson that is right for them.
Likewise, for tradespeople and businesses, the site allows them to connect with homeowners without the need for any marketing experience. Trades are able to sign up for the site on either a pay-as-you-go basis, or through a subscription.
