As we continue to slowly come out of COVID-19 lockdown, it’s no surprise that many of us are gradually discovering the hidden DIY enthusiast within us. And why not! With so much time spent indoors, we are bound to notice all those pending repair or maintenance tasks we had been procrastinating prior to COVID-19.
But before you ask for help from your loyal partner in crime, YouTube and try your hand with that next repair, you should know that a DIY gone wrong, won’t just cost you time and effort, but also double the money in fixing the project that went awry.
“We have seen people order products online that don’t meet Australian plumbing standards. Not only this but we have also experienced a rise in plumbing repair jobs coming in to fix incorrectly installed pipes which can later become a health hazard or faulty attempts to mend leaking taps that could be quietly damaging the properties,” says Paul Dorian, owner PAD Plumbing.
In the face of these challenging times, i4Tradies Emergency Response Center presents 3 simplest and fastest ways to help you connect with licensed, insured and certified Tradies belonging to leading Plumbing, Electrical, Painting and other Trades Associations in your local area.
If you wish to take full control of how you manage your next home improvement, maintenance or renovation job, you can download i4Tradies Consumer App on your mobile and it will let you manage everything from getting quotes to tracking work in progress, receiving invoice, making payments and everything in between. Irrespective of the fact whether you are a homeowner or you are managing a property for someone else, the app works equally well for both.
“As a property manager, this has been one of the best tools I’ve come across to manage home maintenance requests placed by our tenants, especially when some of our regular Tradies are not instantly available. i4Tradies' vast list of certified Tradies has always come to our rescue in the hour of need,” says Lease Team CEO, Ashely Johnson.
As a consumer looking to hire a Tradie, you can also simply register at i4Tradies website and directly place a service request with your chosen Tradie, after going through their business credentials, ensuring you are hiring only the best!
Alternatively, you can book a service at FindMyTradies, a sister platform of i4Tradies, especially designed to help consumers look up Tradies based on their location, past work completed, business credentials and consumer ratings.
No 4G or 5G connection needed. No smart phone needed.
All it takes for you to get that electric heater installed or get emergency help during a black out, is an SMS to 0448 422 422 and i4Tradies will connect you with your nearest certified Electrical Service provider or whichever Tradie you need, in a matter of minutes.
“I needed some fencing fixed and a gate reattached but was wary of trying out an online platform. I contacted i4Tradies via SMS and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it is a very responsive service that is clearly managed by humans. Direct messages and auto-replies were followed up very quickly with phone calls,” reads a recent review left on the platform.
We all are cautious of anyone entering in the home as we practice social distancing during these difficult times. But Tradies remain essential even in the lockdown as everyday repair or maintenance jobs around the home cannot be put off until we fully get rid of the pandemic.
Rest assured that your Tradies are following all precautions and will care for your safety and that of your family when they visit your property. With i4Tradies, find your next Tradie with confidence and peace of mind!
