What is your point of difference?
Each job that comes through to Hire A Tradesman is matched to a specific tradesman.
Each job that we receive is entered into our computer system which allows us to hand pick the tradesman we think is best suited to your job.
For example, we have trades that like smaller jobs and we have trades that like the bigger jobs. We know through the job description you give to us who would suit that particular type of work. We then assign your job to that tradesperson.
Who will contact me?
The tradesman that we assign to your job will contact you within 2 hours where possible.
How do you pick your trades?
We have a thorough system that we have tried and tested which allows us to assess and gauge each tradesperson we speak to.
We decided the best way to assure our clients of getting a good quality tradesman was to invite trades to join us so that they would be accountable to us.
By doing this we can assure our clients that we only use trades we know that have pride in their business, that genuinely care about what they do and want the work.
All the trades we use carry the appropriate insurance.
What areas do you service?
We currently service Victoria but will soon be Australia wide.
The head office is in Melbourne.
