As long as we have buildings (and we assume we always will), we are going to need tradesmen. From roofing specialists to tradesmen who are skilled at replacing windows, carpenters, plumbers, carpet fitters and electricians, there is a wide range of trades that are absolutely vital to our society.
This means that we all need the services of a tradesman from time to time, either because we have an emergency that needs fixing or because we have some routine maintenance or improvements weâ€™d like made. Either way, it is important to choose the right tradesman for the job.
In the past, the phone directory was the main source of information when it came to finding someone to hire. Now, smartphone apps are taking on that mantel, providing directories of local tradesmen that you can search and choose from. A good example of this is the Tradesman Tracker App, which uses GPS technology to work out where you are and suggests local tradesmen based on your location. You can also enter your postcode to find tradespeople for a different area.
This helps to streamline the process of choosing the right person to carry out the work in question. It also eliminates the need for a bulky phone book, which is always welcome! Every tradesperson who signs up to the app also has to sign up to the relevant Code of Practice, which helps to ensure good service â€“ quality of work can never be guaranteed, but it canâ€™t be guaranteed if you search through the phone book, either.
One of the benefits of searching for tradesmen this is way is that they are all in one place, in a single app rather than spread out across the phone book under headings as diverse as â€˜interior designersâ€™ and â€˜glaziersâ€™. If youâ€™ve got a smartphone and are in need of a tradesman, an app such as the Tradesman Tracker App could be worth a go.
