I’ve been doing some research into a few topics recently as my regular readers will have noticed. One of the companies that I decided to look into was Bidvine. I’ve been seeing mention of them online and to be honest until my research I had no idea who they were or what on earth they did.
If like me you hadn’t heard of Bidvine before it is a London based company that enables you to get in touch with local services professionals who will send you their fee for the job you require. You will be sent up to 5 quotes and then it is up to you to decide whether to go ahead and have the service completed. Although they are London based they can offer services all around England and cover a varied range of services. They understand that sometimes it is a necessity to get that shelving fixed rather than nagging the other half for months and locating the right tutor for the children or personal trainer for whatever you need isn’t always easy so they have taken steps to help take the stress out of searching and of course cut the time to locate the perfect professional for the job using minimal time and effort. Sounds like something we all need with our hectic lifestyles doesn’t it.
Just a few of the services that these guys can offer include:
Children’s Entertainers, personal trainers, yoga lessons, all sorts of sports, various types of tutors, various types of catering services, home improvement such as kitchen / loft renovation, various forms of carpentry and cleaning jobs, electrical, flooring, furniture assembly, legal, photography and much more. From the look of it there are hundreds of options of types of work covered to get almost any job done.
How Easy is it to Use?
It was easy enough to use and get around the site. There are not too many pages so you don’t get bogged down with excessive amounts of information.
In order to find out I actually put in a request. This can be done online or via the app which you can download to your phone making it really user friendly. I requested a piano teacher to see what these guys would come up with. These are some of the questions that came up when I was filling in the form. Once you have put in a request you simply sit back and wait. Quotes can be received within a few hours to 2 to 3 days.
I had two responses back with price quotes and these seemed to be people with a fair amount of experience which was good to know. You need to make sure you check respondents profiles as some will show images of their work depending on the type of work they do.
The beauty of this is that if you are not happy with the quotes from the people that respond you are not committed in anyway to go ahead with the job or service. The choice is up to you so it is worth checking what their quotes are and getting those odd jobs around the house that may otherwise never get done finished and feel much better for it.
Although all new service profiles are reviewed Bidvine do not conduct extensive checks so just make sure that the individual is licensed and qualified before using them.
I checked Trust Pilot as it seems to be a great way to check up on companies and the guys over there seem pretty impressed having awarded Bidvine a nice big 8 out of 10.
Would you use a company like Bidvine to get odd jobs done and for any services you require?
