If your toilet won’t flush or a pipe has sprung a leak, you’re going to need a plumber to fix it. Or maybe you’re having a nice new kitchen or bathroom fitted and need a plumber to install the washing machine or the new shower?
You might have a friend who is a plumber or you might have a regular guy that you use and rely on. But what if you don’t? How can you know that the name you pluck off the internet is going to be someone reliable who does a good job? We all know that getting reliable tradespeople can be a minefield and we’ve all heard the horror stories of jobs that have been done badly, at ridiculous cost, then the guy vanishes and refuses to return calls.
Luckily, there is a way to find a plumber you can be confident will do a proper job. MyBuilder makes it easy to find plumbers in the UK. The website has got thousands of reliable, local plumbers across the UK and all of the plumbers are screened, so you can feel confident that they are reliable. If you need that toilet fixed today, or want someone to work on your new kitchen next month, you can post a job to get responses from local plumbers.
Some of the plumbers are also CORGI registered (or Gas Safe registered as it’s now called), which means they can work on central heating and boilers, which is something I needed the other day when my boiler started making very strange noises. When your boiler sounds like someone is in your garage chucking heavy stuff around, it’s probably best not to use it and to get someone in to take a look!
Wherever you live in the UK, there’s a section of the website dedicated especially to your area, so you can specifically search for plumbers in London, plumbers in Birmingham or plumbers in Manchester. A quick look at these pages will show plumbers with more than 200 reviews with 100% feedback. That definitely takes away a lot of the uncertainty of finding a reliable tradesperson.
And if you do find a plumber through MyBuilder, you can post your feedback online too, to make sure he gets more work and that people in your local area can know they are booking a reliable tradesman. What could be easier?
Do you find it easy to get a reliable tradesman? Or do you have a friend you can rely on?
