Ever sat and watched hours of your life slipping away as you sift through Google, desperately trying to find the right local professional for your job? My hand is firmly in the air. And half the time it is all in vain when no-one replies or perhaps one does, but how do you know they aren't ripping you off? It gives me a headache just thinking about it. Enter Bidvine, the easy way to find local professionals in your area in one go.
What is Bidvine?
Bidvine is basically a huge directory of professional people local to you. Literally every service imaginable from Dog Walkers to Swimming Pool Installers are listed on Bidvine. Need a Dance Teacher or a Masseuse? Yep, they've got those too. I'm looking for something a little less glamourous but essential; an Interior Painter to decorate our hallway. It is in serious need of some long overdue TLC. but pretty much the only time Husband and I row is when we are decorating so we try and avoid it at all costs. We would much rather a professional did the job to lower the stress decibels in our home!
How does Bidvine work?
Using Bidvine is surprisingly simple. You enter the service you want and your location. You are then asked a series of questions to help the professional tailor their quote for your requirements.
I was asked a number of questions about the kind of rooms I want painting, the size of the rooms and what areas I want painting - walls, woodwork, doors etc. And of course, the important question; will I be supplying the paint?!
Then a few more questions about timescales and I was given the option to submit photos or add any extra information which would help the quotation process.
Then you enter the email address you'd like to receive your quotations to and hit 'submit request'. It really is as easy. Within a few days you receive quotes from local professionals who meet your criteria. You can then compare their information, check out their Bidvine profile and choose the right person for your job.
It really is the easy way to find and contact local professionals in your area in one go without giving yourself a migraine! They have a mobile app too so you can find the right person for your job anywhere, even while you are on the train or waiting at the Doctor's surgery. It is perfect for busy people, like me, me who just hate wasting time trawling online to find the right people. Plus if you are a procrastinator this could be the perfect tool for you to help move projects forward.
We are looking to put a small extension on our house (if we don't end up moving - long story) so I'll be using Bidvine to help source the right tradespeople for that job too!
