Find a Trade
Find a Trade – its easy, choose the best company for you

When you have received all the estimates use these and other information about each company available on the site to help you find the right trade.

To help you decide, consider asking for references and try to make sure they are relevant for similar jobs they have done to yours. Consider if its worth calling their insurance company to check the validity of the trade's liabilities.

Ensure a tradesperson/company shows you their appropriate documents BEFORE they start work. (siret, insurances etc.) It may be too late afterwards.

If they quote accreditations check them out using the Internet or calling the awarding body.

Use the success criteria you selected when you posted the job to help you choose - and eventually rate - a company / tradesperson. We will ensure all trades that contact you know your criteria so that they can tailor their proposal to your specific needs.

Here is an overview of the type of information we display to help you decide which trade to select.
  • Company details
  • Up to 5 customer references supported by photographs of the work done
  • Company registration/siret
  • Public liability insurance
  • Company insured with

Rate a Trade
Rate a Trade – help other homeowners like you

Evaluate/rate their work - Once the work is completed please help us to help others by leaving feedback for the trade and others to see. Give each of the the criteria you selected when you posted the job, a score and leave a comment so that you can recommend them to others – by rating a tradesperson you inform homeowners about their suitability. Please note we strongly advise a fair, honest and objective rating.

Although we ask you to evaluate a trade when the work is done, we also recommend that you (especially on larger projects) do this during the project. Keep referring back to the estimates and plans to monitor progress. For larger jobs, don't leave it until the job is finished to review the satisfaction criteria, let the trade know how they are doing as you progress.
