Rated People is an online tradesmen recommendation service that connects homeowners and tradesmen in the UK. Since its launch, more than 4 million jobs have been posted on its website, spanning across a number of categories, including: building; roofing; plumbing; electrical; joinery; painting and decorating; and gardening work.
Through Rated People, homeowners who are in need of a tradesman can post jobs for free on the platform and receive quotes from up to three interested tradesmen (who have paid a membership fee in advance to be quoted on ratedpeople.com). Following the completion of work, the homeowners can leave ratings based on quality, value and reliability, allowing other homeowners to confidently hire a tradesman whom they can trust.
To date, the website has accumulated more than 600,000 community ratings of its trade members and, in 2015 alone, one million jobs were posted on ratedpeople.com.
