How it works

Unlike all other online services Priceatrade lets you find and appoint tradesmen online in just minutes.


Online tradesmen services only ever show a directory of tradesmen, you still have to contact the tradesmen to get prices, have tradesmen visit you in your home, and then wait and compare the different quotations. Time consuming and almost impossible to decide which to use - they all quote for different works, processes and materials.

With Priceatrade you enter the work needed then Priceatrade instantly matches you to suitable tradesmen, ready to do the work.

Now you are comparing tradesmen on a level playing field. You can see and compare online profiles, user ratings and their price to do the job (we provide a guide price on the site, but within 24 hours tradesmen show thir individual prices to complete the work in your Priceatrade Inbox).

So what can normally take 1-2 months, and a lot of stress, is now just 24 hours; and each tradesmen is directly comparable. And it's all free to use!

How to get going

Simply go to the home page, select the type of Trade you need, the type of Job, and then select from the list of Options. Each Option shows a price to supply and fit or fit only (if you already have the parts). Build a basket of work and view the price. Then tell us the first two letters of the postcode and we will show up to six recommended tradesmen.

Select the tradesmen you are interested in, and within 24 hours tradesmen fill your Priceatrade Inbox with their availability and price to complete the work. (Prices shown initially on the site are guide prices, after sending the job tradesmen provide their own prices to complete the work within 24 hours.)

View the tradesmen's profiles, past work and user ratings; and if you decide you want to work with one of the tradesmen, simply select and the tradesman will make contact with you to meet.

You are under no obligation to use any of the tradesmen recommended and your contact details remain confidential and secure within an SSL server, and only released to your chosen tradesmen when you decide.

The benefits to you?

So many!

Speed - you find the trademen that's right for you in just 24 hours

Ability to find the right tradesmen - now you can compare on a level playing field

Ease - all from your computer, no need to undergo the quotation process - having to be in for tradesmen to visit, having to brief, wait for quotes, and struggle to compare each quotation. This can be stress and lengthy, often taking up to 2 months.

But you know the really great thing about Priceatrade?

Now you can do all those little jobs you have been putting off. Now you can build a basket of components even the smallest jobs like fiing a leaky tap can be done quickly and easily.

There are other benefits as well:

  • Fully confidential - we don't ask for your details and nor is anything passed to tradesmen. So you can compare services safe in the knowledge you won't be receiving any of those annoying follow up calls. It's only if you want a tradesmen to do the work that would need to release contact details.
  • Free - this service is completely free, we fund ourselves from a membership fee charged to the tradesmen
  • No obligation - search and compare when and as often as you like and there is no obligation whatsoever to use any of the tradesmen recommended
