How many tradespeople are expected to contact me for a quote?

Up to three tradespeople can call or email you although this can be less depending on how many are interested in your job based on location, job description and budget.

What happens after I post a job?

Your job will be filtered based on your requirements, you will be viewed by tradespeople. Only those who are interested (up to three tradespeople) can buy the lead of which your contact details will be revealed to them for you to be contacted regarding your job. This can take effect within 1 hour to several days depending on the interests from the tradespeople.

How does WANTATRADER.CO.UK work?

You must first post your job, a description of the works you require as well as your contact information. Your job post will then be filtered and shown (only the job description) to tradespeople who best fit your requirements. If a tradesperson wants to provide you with a quotation or to arrange for a site visit, the job lead will need to be purchased (up to three tradespeople can buy the job) in which further contact details will be revealed to them.

Are there any guarantees for the works?

No, we only connect you directly to tradespeople. It is up to them to guarantee you for the undertaken works, and this is something that the customers need to discuss directly with the tradespeople.

How is my contact information protected?

We have high security measures and SSL certificates in our websites to protect all customer information with encrypted links between our servers and browser. We also do regular updates on our website to keep the security always updated.

How can I find details of tradespeople?

You will be sent an email of matched tradespeople so you can view their profile with all their information.

How many tradespeople can see my contact information?

Only tradespeople who buy the lead (up to three) can see your contact details, however all tradespeople can see your job description and budget only.

Are your tradespeople checked?

Our third parties ensure that all recommended checks are carried out on the tradespeople for example their trading addresses, public insurances, review checks and many other security checks before they sign up. They are also regularly monitored to ensure that they comply with all trading standards and have their public insurance up to date.

How long until tradespeople call or email me to arrange for a quote?

This can take anywhere from an hour to several days, depending on the tradespeople’s interest in your job.

Why has no one contacted me for my job yet?

If you haven’t heard from any tradespeople after a few days (three days or more), it’s highly likely that there is no interest in your job, this may be due to the job description, budget, location, or because they are busy.

Why are my contact details required?

Your contact information is required so that tradespeople who are interested in contacting you to arrange a quotation, can do so. A quote may be given over the phone or email, for more complex job requirements an appointment will need to be arranged.

Why do you ask for an estimated budget when posting a job?

This gives the tradespeople an indication on the scale of the job. If you are unsure you can always estimate the costs or budget very roughly as this does not have to be precise.

What if I decide not to hire your tradespeople?

You are not obligated to anything regardless of you finding tradespeople through our website. If you have received quotes from tradespeople and decide not to proceed with the project nothing happens.

How can I review tradespeople?

You will be sent emails of matched tradespeople with their profile so you can view their profile and place a review depending on the experience you have had with them.

What details are required?

Name, number, address, email and job description with an estimated budget is required in order to have a live job advert and to be contacted by tradespeople.

What details are shown to the tradespeople?

All tradespeople that you are matched to can only see you job description and budget (some cases only the first part of your postcode). However, the tradespeople who buy the lead (up to three) can see the contact information as well.
