TradePages - helping you find a trusted tradesman

“TradePages - helping you find a trusted tradesman.”

TradePages is pleased to announce the launch of its website enabling tradesmen to list their details online and allowing consumers to find a tradesman they are able to trust. The website ( has been established to fill a void in the market and will allow consumers to rate tradesmen they use which will be visible to other users.

Tradesmen are able to list their details at three different tier levels; the Bronze package starting for less than $5.00 per month. Free Trial memberships are available until the end of the year, by then TradePages hopes to have established a large base of trusted tradesmen and end users.

“New Zealanders need a portal to find quality tradesmen they are able to trust with their home maintenance problems, and TradePages is hoping to fill that vacancy” said Mr Luke Kelly, Sales and Marketing Manager.

“The internet controls many of our daily tasks – and New Zealand is in need of a comprehensive online tradesperson directory. Ideally we would like to see tradesmen focusing their advertising budget with TradePages; which is more specific to the other mass mediums used”. Mr Kelly said.

TradePages allows the end user who initiates contact via the website to place feedback and rate the tradesman once the job is completed and hope this will raise the quality of tradesmen used by the public. TradePages has come to reciprocal advertising arrangement with McEntee Hire for the initial six months; and hope this will lead to their target of 400 tradesmen in the first 12 months of business.
