Marketplace for Professional Services goes live

Chance of Finding a Terrific Professional -

Trades and services online market place MyHandyman has launched, offering an alternative way of hiring tradesmen. The free portal lets professionals bid for the jobs they want to work on. Consumers can then choose professional based on price, qualifications, customer feedback rating or how quickly they can get the job done. All tradesmen go through MyHandyman’s approval process and can be checked via a customer feedback mechanism.

In addition, skilled professionals no longer have to rely on localised recommendation - their MyHandyman customer rating provides effective endorsement on a national scale. Juergen Reutlinger, Owner comments, ``This way of hiring gives consumers more choice, control and convenience when planning home improvement jobs. “ Furthermore MyHandyman gives Professionals access to new work helping them build their businesses. We’ve developed a service that cuts the confusion from the planning process of home improvement, and we look forward to revolutionising the trade services market here in New Zealand. We now start here in New Zealand and soon open the Service to the whole Region with Australia, Fiji, Samoa and the Papua New Guinea. So Everyone from New Zealand, Australia to Fiji is able to have access to this Service’’.
