It is a shame it has just come to my attention that the review site "Problem Solved" which we have been using since 2008 is no longer up and running. We had many good reviews on this site and they appear to have now been wiped away without notice. We will see if we can get some of these reviews back. in the mean time we will be sticking with Check a Trade. After doing some research into the various companies running review sites, we decided Check a Trade was the best.
We were approached by Rated People, but decided they were more interested in taking our money than offering future customers any guarantee of quality and reliability of trades people listed on their site.
The difference between Rated People and Check a Trade is that the latter visited us personally and vetted our company to make sure we were fully insured and registered before allowing us to join, this is not something ratedpeople do, or seemed interested in doing. Check a trade also asked us for previous customers testimonials which they would contact for assurance. So in effect we vetted our review company and made sure they would offer the best and most honest advice to our customers before signing up
So although we appear to have now unfortunately lost 6 years of reviews with Problem Solved, we hope the 36 current reviews we have on Check a Trade will stand us in good stead for our future customers to make an educated decision before employing us!
