How to… find your Rated Person

Rated People are here to help, we connect quality, local tradesmen with homeowners. Tradesmen often get a bad press but not our guys. When they complete a job the homeowner rates them on quality, reliability and value, so when you hire a Rated Person you know that he’s the man for the job.

‘Yea yea’, I hear you say, so don’t take our word for it, our tradesmen are rated by your neighbours. You can’t beat word-of-mouth but we are giving it a good go! Now you no longer have to spend your Sunday afternoon knocking on your neighbours’ doors asking them who built their conservatories.

How it works:

You post your job on the Rated People site and we will put you in contact with up to 3 tradesmen. The tradesmen will provide their quotes for the work, you can check out their ratings and pick the guy that’s right for you. Remember that the tradesmen are buying your job, so make sure you have everything in place and give as many details as possible. We don’t like to hear our tradesmen are unhappy because someone didn’t get planning permission for his extension, or indicated a 30K budget but hadn’t consulted the wife prior to deciding the cost.

The thing that really beats asking Betty from next door is that our tradesmen pick your jobs themselves. You specify when you want the job done, your budget and because they have picked you they can do your job when you want it done – no more waiting until Betty’s builder has space in his diary!

Remember you need to do your bit too – rate your tradesperson so they can do a great job for someone else too. We love a happy ending!

We understand it is difficult to give accurate details and accurate budgets, but we are here to help. If there is a particular problem of difficulty or even some handy hints to help others hiring their rated people, let us know. Stay tuned for advice on how to budget for key home improvements…
