Whether you need your computer fixed, some fencing put up or an emergency boiler repair, finding the right person for the job can be a nail-biting experience. You can waste hours trawling through directories only to end up with a tradesperson who doesn’t show up on the day, is poorly equipped for the job or overcharges you for careless workmanship.
The risk and uncertainty in finding a reliable tradesperson is not unfounded. Market research has shown that rogue traders cost UK homeowners billions of pounds every year in botched jobs. At Recommend and Share, we want to change this. Nobody should ever feel like finding an honest trader is a personal gamble. Our aim is to give you the peace of mind you deserve before inviting a trader into your home.
Giving you a voice
Your opinion matters. That's why Recommend & Share is designed to give you a voice. It's the only place where everyone can speak freely about their experiences, creating a better, safer environment for all.
If you want to show your appreciation to a great trader, you can now recommend them to others. In the event of an unresolved dispute, you can share your story to help protect the rest of the community from going through the same negative experience.
Recommendations can be seen by everyone, ensuring that genuine tradespeople are rewarded, while any rogues are exposed - making it harder for them to cause further damage. Traders can also recommend you in return – and your glowing credentials will mean the very best traders jump at the chance to work with you in the future. There's less risk, less stress, and greater transparency. Recommend & Share makes everyone accountable for their actions.
How does it work?
Simply search for the trade you’re looking for and enter your postcode to view local traders. Customer reviews and recommendations are shown in each trader’s profile, helping you to quickly find someone with good references. You can then contact your chosen trader directly to discuss the job, safe in the knowledge that their work is endorsed by other satisfied customers.
When the job is complete, leave a review to let others know about your experience. Because the reputation of our tradespeople is governed by you, your satisfaction is paramount. Reviews can be seen by everyone, holding tradespeople accountable for shoddy labour and raising the bar for working standards and ethical practice in the marketplace.
Recommend & Share is completely free. Unlike directory sites, we don't charge traders for using our service. That means we can stay completely neutral, championing a fairer marketplace for tradespeople and homeowners alike.
We believe the best way to find a top-notch electrician, plumber or builder is by word of mouth. If you know of any first-rate tradespeople that you’d be happy to recommend – or if you’ve had a bad experience with a rogue trader – then please tell us, even if that trader isn’t listed on our site. We’ll spread the word to everyone to help ensure that only the honest, decent tradespeople can continue to operate in the marketplace.
