We have been a private landlords in Rossendale since 2002 and have used lots of different tradesmen to help carry out repairs and renovation projects, everything from a bit of painting and decorating to complete renovation including roofing, re wiring, new bathrooms and central heating systems.
Choosing a tradesman can be difficult, we've all seen the rogue trader TV programs and some people have had the misfortune of experiencing this for themselves. We aim to provide customers with an easy to use website so they can find a good tradesman quickly and easily without the worry or stress involved.
We have built our own network of good reliable Plumbers, Electricians and Builders who we can rely on and trust and we are regularly asked for recommendations for tradesmen by friends and family, we have set up this site to help people find good tradesmen, promote good businesses and give customers confidence in the tradesmen they choose.
Finding good, reliable tradesmen can be hard work, there are too many people out there who over charge, are dishonest and have poor workmanship, if you have ever been at the receiving end of bad workmanship or simply ripped off you have already learned the hard way that choosing a reputable trader can be difficult. We aim to promote good businesses who provide a quality service at a fair price.
Most people rely on tradespeople recommended by word of mouth, and in most cases this works fine but sometimes using friends of friends or relatives can also lead to problems. This site works the same as many other websites, by customers leaving ratings and feedback, people use ratings and feedback to book holidays and buy goods all over the internet and usually this provides a good guide to the service you will receive. The more feedback the better the picture but of course there will always be a difference of opinion. Tradespeople who receive genuine bad feedback will be removed from 1stop4trades
We aim to help promote good local businesses by giving them a voice from their customers about the good work they do, this site will run in a similar way to other trade comparison sites however we don’t want to sell you job leads. It is free to join and all we ask for is a copy of your business insurance and details of any relevant memberships or qualifications you have. We would also like you to get feedback posted from your customers.
We are using social media like Facebook and Twitter which has already spread the word quickly about 1stop4trades. We will provide feedback sheets for you to give your customers to get their reviews on our site. This will give future customers confidence you aim to provide a good service and are proud of the work you do. No feedback will be posted until we have checked it first, bad reviews will not be posted until I have contacted you so you can try to resolve the issue with the customer. We understand that as well as bad traders there are also bad customers.
