I have posted two adverts recently and had good responses. Now I have 2 competent tradesmen already started the work. Thank you Rated People

Hazel Scott, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire


Well I’ve used them for the first time last week, had two very nice people come out as planned to give reasonable quotes and the work done is of a very high standard! Would recommend this site and would definitely use again, thank you

Kelly Holmes, Ilkeston


I engaged the services of an electrician through Rated People and had a guy called James Cracknell from Bromley arrive. The previous electrician I had got privately turned out to be dreadful (he didn’t earth everything!). James arrived and charged a very competitive price, was efficient, effective, an absolute delight to have around and worked right through 5 days (no skiving like some!) bought his sandwiches so he didn’t need to even stop for lunch. He did a half rewiring of my home and was excellent. If you need an electrician he is your man

First time I’ve used Rated People and was really pleased. It was a great service, tradesperson turned up on time and went out of his way to assist – even when I’d measured up wrong! Have already booked again for more work.

After adding job details on Rated People at 1am, Garry had called and confirmed time on that same day and carried out the work to an excellent standard! He knows his trade well, and gave us excellent advice. Honest, reliable and reasonable!! Thank you.

Asma, West Midlands


I used Rated People to find a trustworthy company and I wasn’t disappointed. Within hours of posting my request for somebody to come and look at my broken down boiler Richard from Eco Heat had e mailed me then contacted me by phone. Today the engineers came to install a new boiler and worked with great efficiency and competence. I have found a plumber I can trust and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Christine, Southend-on-Sea

This was the first time I have used Rated People. The booking was for my mother, so I popped by to check the tradesman was ok. Liam was reliable, trustworthy and charged the same as he had quoted. My mother was delighted with the job that was done.

Brenda, Nottingham


Job done within 10 hours of contact with Rated People. Brian, thoughtfully took his boots off to come into the house each time! Impressive altogether, after weeks of trying to find a solution.

Vivien, Glasgow

Our tradespeople’s stories

“I trust Rated People to find me good clients. I can use it when my own work becomes a little bit slack, which gives me control over my schedule and my business. Sourcing regular, local garden maintenance work from the site gives me security and allows me to find other work for my employees.”

“We found Rated People on the web, we signed up for it and started getting job leads. It helped us out at the beginning. Even now, we’re still in a position where, if work comes on (to Rated People), we’ll take it.”

Quick Drain Clear, Glasgow based drainage company.

“I get 75% of my business from Rated People. The service gives security and peace of mind to both homeowners and tradespeople.”
