According to a survey by the Herald Sun in Jan 2018, 3 out of 5 people find it difficult to hire tradies. But why? Well our own internet search reveals three main sticking points for customers seeking a tradesman.
- How much is it going to cost?
- Who do I trust?
- Will they turn up?
Similarly tradies have their own concerns about connecting with customers.
- How do I quote without going onsite?
- Will I get paid ontime or at all?
- How can I get on with the job and stop chasing the paperwork?
Well finally there is a solution that meets the needs of both sides of the equation. With Glass Ontime customers have the convenience of being able to get a price upfront, choose a time that’s convenient and choose a glazier all in one transaction without the need to speak with anyone.
And tradies get guaranteed jobs NOT leads, online bookings without the need to quote and most of the paperwork sorted. Which leaves more time to get on with the actual jobs.
Glass Ontime is set to trial in Melbourne April 2018 with a handful of qualified and experienced Glaziers. Co-founder and CEO Colm Clinton says “Glass Ontime is the only platform which actually delivers an ubertized trade service – others might promise but Glass Ontime delivers.”
