MyBuilder.com makes sure your builder is not stuck in Olympic traffic
The team at MyBuilder.com watched Friday’s opening ceremony with great pride and a sense of anticipation (as they have tickets to a few events), but they knew that many of the tradesmen that use their website could only see trouble coming. Many builders have taken time off during the Olympic games, as they fear not being able to get around London and other parts of the UK. But MyBuilder see the games as an opportunity rather than a hindrance, as it gives them a chance to show off how effective their local search can be.
MyBuilder.com offers the perfect solution to the problem of tradesmen being caught in Olympics traffic, by cutting out much of the journey to begin with. MyBuilder has thousands of building trade workers in London, from bricklayers to window fitters and from carpenters to roofers. And, most importantly, they can find people a skilled tradesman in their own neighbourhood, whether that is a carpet-fitter in Chelsea, a gas engineer in Greenwich or a stonemason in Stratford.
MyBuilder’s hyper-local search means that homeowners can use http://www.mybuilder.com to find a plumber, electrician or painter within their postcode area. They can search for suitable tradesmen by area or simply post a job at MyBuilder.com for free and have the tradesmen come to them. It could not be simpler. Tradesmen don’t have to trek across the city when there is work on their doorstep and homeowners are not left waiting in for late workers.
“Everyone believes that the traffic is going to be crazy during the games, but we know that our website can really help both homeowners and tradesmen find a way around those problems,” says MyBuilder CEO Ryan Notz. “Our website allows you to order search results by distance, so you may find a tradesman in the next street you wouldn’t have known about otherwise. All our tradesmen are reviewed by those who have used their services, so it also takes the risk out of hiring someone to do work on your house, whether that is to repair a dripping tap or build an extension. We are all used to shop local campaigns and the idea that is a green option, but we have moved away from that idea when it comes to getting a builder in.”
MyBuilder CEO and founder Ryan Notz is available for interview and we can also find MyBuilder tradesmen across the trades for you to speak with. Michigan-born Notz started the business when he was working as a stonemason, so he has plenty of experience of working as a tradesman in the UK.
