About 1stop4trades

We have been investing in property in Rossendale and our local area 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 refurbishment of run down properties including damp proofing, 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 lots of people including ourselves have come across bad tradesmen. 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. We are regularly asked for recommendations for tradesmen by friends and family and have set up this site to help people find good tradesmen all over Lancashire and Manchester, we want to help 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 had a bad experience with a tradesman you have already learned the hard way that choosing someone reputable 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 reviews, people use reviews to book holidays and buy other goods on the internet and this usually provides a good guide to the service you will receive. The more feedback the better the picture but of course sometimes there may be a difference of opinion.

Tradesmen who receive genuine bad feedback will be removed from 1stop4trades


We aim to help people find good local tradesmen quickly and easily. This site will run in a similar way to other tradesman sites however we don’t charge for job leads, you choose a simple low cost membership to suit your needs. We ask for a copy of your business insurance and details of any relevant memberships or qualifications you have. We encourage you to try and get feedback from your customers.

1stop4trades is listed on nearly all social media platforms, we know most customers still ask and search for tradesmen on Facebook so we have a Facebook page and a seperate group with well over 1000 members and we are active on hundereds of local groups where people regularly ask for tradesmen recommendations, we try and steer as much of this as we can towards our website.

We think reviews are important to help customers choose you, we can provide feedback sheets for you to give to your customers or they can simply leave a review online.
