Job posting

Jobs are posted by registered homeowners with work descriptions, skill requirements, and a budget range. Tradesmen get notified of posted jobs that match their skills and interests. After reading the full descriptions of applicable jobs, tradespeople can submit quotes and upload their work samples on their portfolio page for homeowners to check. Homeowners then examine the posted quotes and work samples to determine the most qualified one and award the project to one tradesperson.

Tradespeoplehub.co.uk encourages homeowners to provide accurate and complete descriptions when posting jobs. Our posting and quote systems are designed to maximize the potential for satisfactory results for both the homeowner and tradesmen.

Accounts

Each registered Tradespeoplehub.co.uk user is provided with a free online account for payments or fund transfers. Funds can be added from various payment sources such as the user's credit card, PayPal or bank transfer.

A Tradesperson can withdraw funds from his or her Tradespeoplehub.co.uk account via express withdrawal, PayPal or bank transfer.

Payments

Homeowners can pay tradesmen via transfer from their accounts to tradesmen' accounts. This can be achieved through Milestone Payments.

Funds can be deposited to Tradespeoplehub.co.uk Milestone Payment System and released when a specific task or entire project is completed and the homeowner is 100% satisfied.

Homeowners are under no obligation to provide upfront payment and should only consider this with well-trusted tradespeople as released payments can only be returned upon consent of the tradesperson.

Small projects can also be paid via our Milestone Payment System, to assure the tradesperson that the funds are available while allowing the homeowner to release the funds only after the job is completed and he or she is pleased.

The Tradespeoplehub.co.uk rating and feedback system explained below is only available for projects when payments are made through Tradespeoplehub.co.uk.

Ratings & Feedback

When a project is completed through payments made within theTradespeoplehub.co.uk system, the feedback and rating system for that project will be activated. This provides the opportunity for the homeowner and tradespeople to rate each other’s performance through comments and a simple 5-star rating scale. To ensure fairness, members may also post a response to the other party’s comments. A tradesperson's overall ratings and individual project ratings and feedback are shown on their profile page to help homeowners assess the value of working with that tradesperson.

The feedback and rating system allows both homeowners and tradesmen the opportunity to build their reputations through performance. It also provides the entire Tradespeoplehub.co.uk community with added protection against potential scams and unsatisfactory project delivery.
