Review for MyBuilder by Hotpipes Plumbing & Home Improvements
28th June 2020

Decent little lead generator but pick your leads wisely. Often have phone calls that don't connect or answered. Recently leads seem more expensive but I've not done bad from it.

Review for MyBuilder by Acre Driveways
21st April 2020

I am signed up to my builder and use it on the odd chance. Lots of jobs get posted but you notice at times you can have 10+ people interested so hard for good installers to be seen. I am annoyed when you get shortlisted but the lead becomes dead due to them not wanting the work done or they’ve picked someone in a day. You would think my builder would help by not charging you but they seem to not care. I think they have lots to improve on with certain aspects.

It seems to me that this service my builder.com is a waste of time. You have too many monkeys chasing after the same job there are too many tradesmen on here the competition is overwhelming how is a decent tradesman meant to make a living.

Tried My builder for serveral months, Once shortlisted, pay the bill, even if the client never contacts you. Allowing charater assassination by unreasonable clients,with no really right for redress. COMPLETE LACK OF SUPPORT TO THE TRADES ALL ONE SIDED TOWARDS CLIENTS AS THIS IS WHERE THE MONEY IS GENERATED, VIA LEADS. AWFUL SITE, LOOK ELSEWHERE FOR YOUR WORK.

Absolute mince! Impossible to do a job properly to a high standard when the platform sells leads to everyone and vets noone cowboys and substandard tradesmen galore. We all know a cheap job is not necessarily a good one and some of the prices I've lost to were unreasonably low no chance of doing a proper Job in any respect. Avoid like the plague if your a professional and would actually like to complete a job to a high standard and make enough money to live on.

Review for MyBuilder by Fine Finish Decorating
25th February 2020

I was shortlisted for a high value job, customer didn't respond and mybuilder still wanted their pound of flesh! I refuse to pay for an unresponsive lead. The shorlisting feature is unrestricted in as far as the customer can shortlist as many tradesmen as they like, leaving sometimes 7 or 8 tradesmen fighting for one job. Meanwhile Mybuilder are raking in the cash from each lead. This business is based on greed and there is no loyalty or regard for the tradesmen. I have now signed up with Checkatrade and am extremely happy with the service.

A race to the bottom, i'm constantly being under cut by those without the correct qualifications or insurance. MyBuilder may do the basic checks but once on their books then you can apply for any job that pops up, regardless if the worker has the qualifications or insurance.

Every time I spoke to customer services they’ve been good to me (apart from the hard sale). The problem I have (for example an EICR) is I have all the correct insurances, qualifications and experience in place, I will be placing an estimate next to someone who does not and will be cheaper due to this . Because of the MyBuilder branding the customer thinks everyone has the correct qualifications et cetera to do their job. So I find lose the work to the non-qualified and incorrectly insured cowboy.

Mybuilder is good for one thing and that’s cheap easy jobs. However it has created a race to the bottom atmosphere. It sides with customers and not the professionals and allows multiple tradesmen to go for the same job and if they all get shortlisted then they all pay. Vicious cycle

Mybuilder is a total waste of time. They actually encourage the customer to shortlist as much as 5 tradesmen for a service or tap change, it’s absolutely disgraceful. They make their money from getting as many shortlist fees as they can. It’s a total race to the bottom. I still keep the eye out for the odd job here and there but i’ll never go and compete with 4 other companies to change a trv

Review for MyBuilder by A J Redgate Carpentry
30th August 2019

I first starting using my builder when I first went self employed, hard to get into Carpentry at an older age, no one to give you a chance so started doing domestic work on my own. Anyway it can be expensive and there are a lot of customers that have champagne taste but lemonade money. I never reduce my cost and so have done pretty well out of it but you have to be careful selecting the customer. I have completed about 30 jobs on my builder but have probably paid for 60-70 leads. I may have been lucky but the jobs I have won I have done very well out of and have many referrals from the work that I have done. More often then not I usually get 1-2 more jobs out of it. One customer gave me a whole years worth of work. About £30,000 from just a an initial £10 lead. So it can work out well.

I use MyBuilder occasionally when it's very slow. I don't get into bidding wars with other trades people, I select (as carefully as I can) the people/jobs on offer, I state my estimated price and state they should only shortlisted me if they want my services. It has worked for me so far...

In short don’t bother! I used these to fill gaps in my diary when I first started up but as you pay for the lead and there is no guarantee of any work you’re often paying out for no benefit. It’s also a race to get shortlisted. I found that all it attracts is people who can’t do it themselves but want jobs done for nothing. But if you pay nothing you’ll get a crap job. You get what you pay for.

I used these during my first year of trading as a sole trader and got a couple of jobs but it turned out to be a race to the bottom. Lowest price wins or the first person to get to the job. If you have more than a days work in front of you then don't bother. They attract startups so there is alway new competition supplying their services for minimum wage. You pay for the lead if you get shortlisted and don't tell the job poster those details so, they shortlist you for advice and move on to the cheapest quote.

I hear a lot of people knocking my Builder, but I find it very handy. If I’ve got plenty of work on, then it costs me nothing, if I’ve got some gaps in the calendar then I start showing interest in jobs and give a rough quote to weed out the people who are looking for unreasonable work at an unreasonable price. If you work it right it’s a great asset

I have used my builder to pick up the odd job during a quiet spell. I like it for the fact you don't have to sign up to any contract. The only downside is if you get shortlisted for a lead, which you then pay for, you don't get your money back if the customer does not get back in touch with you or has changed their mind.

Really don’t use them waste of money and time

We are on mybuilder and very rarely use it I'm afraid. The price they charge for the leads is becoming rather stupid, plus we did have a dispute once and mybuilder did not help at all. It is made purely for customers to get the silliest quote possible. Does not help the tradesman. Plus I do believe that we had a fake job post once.

Awful. I was a member when I first started out as self employed but thought the whole concept was flawed. Customers assign a value to a job. How would the customer know how much it costs for me to fit radiators even if they have had a similar job done before? You then pay to respond to the lead based on the value the customer assigned. I would never use them again and would suggest no one else does either.

My builder is okay as a second source of work leads but not your main. Most of the time its people posting very little information on job lead which you would have to show interest in just to find out more information which in most cases loses you money. Although if you have a 100% positive feedback its a good accreditation to show. Every now and then you will find the odd good job but most of the time its people looking for the cheapest quote.

I have been on My builder for a while now and have worked hard on my profile page with pretty much no success. I have shown interest in 100's of leads with no return. I now only use it as a type of accreditation but would not recommend this as a stand alone tool to gain work

Poor customer service. Cheapest price wins most jobs on here. I've purchased leads and had no contact with the customer. Overall I would say avoid these sites and spend your time promoting yourself elsewhere.

I haven’t used for a while but I still get notifications which seem consistent so they must get a fair share of jobs. I have used it to fill gaps and been fortunate to have repeat custom from just a few leads but I also have had time wasters on there and a lot of trades under cutting as it’s almost a glorified auction but if you budget it within your marketing spend it can be well worth it.

Prices are rising it was once much cheaper to use. They don’t send a huge amount of work over but I like the fact there is no subscription so you can pick and chose jobs if you have a gap.

I joined mybuilder as a way to increase business. Similar to rated people, you buy a lead. However, on 4 occasions I have bought leads (and these can cost £28) and you can't get hold of the customer even though you've rang and rang and even text and emailed to the point of harassment. At this point, rated people would refund you due to no contact. Mybuilder don't. I've spent around £120 on leads and got 2 Jobs. Granted, both large jobs but still £120! I don't use them anymore.

Waste of time and money grabbers if you ask me.

Love hate relationship with mybuilder. Got a lot of work through them but the while way they do business is underhand and sneaky. The homeowners don't even realise that we are paying for leads they really ram it down the homeowners throat to invite as many trades to quote as possible for more money in shortlist fees. There are far to many competitors on mybuilder send prices plummeting. The one thing that used to be good was that if you had lots.of good reviews this was made clear to the potential customer and you had more chance of being shortlisted recently I have noticed that on when you express intrested the only thing that comes up is 100% feedback. So basically someone could have 1 job on there and show the same 100% feedback as me with 35. 35 100% feedback is far harder to achieve than 1 100% feedback. Just another con so the homeowner shortlists more people and lines the directors pocket.

Had a couple of good leads off of it which means it has more than paid for itself so far thankfully. My god you end up spending a lot of money for little gain with if you're not careful. Timewasters, false leads, customers who don't even contact you back even tho they've shortlisted you, people who expect something for nothing, the list goes on. If you need the work it can work ok i guess. I tried it out as I saw a couple of interesting leads to start off. In the end I knocked out on the head as it can be very expensive, especially if you don't really need the work. Be wary that they offer no refunds so when you think you have been duped there is no way of getting your money back. It's certainly making someone a lot of money who isn't actually doing the work.

I have posted interest in many jobs, but others may have done a lot of work through them, I have never had a single job out of it.I suspect the jobs posted have been previously quoted for, because a lot of the posts seem very well informed, for Joe public, so they are looking for a rock bottom price.Others post crap so more info is needed to accept the inquiry , so another waste of time. A bit like fishing with a grenade, except you dropping money instead of grenades.

Don't bother guys!!!! You purchase leads that have been priced by someone who has no idea what the job involves ! So a simple re plumb of a shower could be put in the price bracket of a bathroom refurb! That will set you back over £20 + vat, You basically put your name forward to quote on the job if your chosen you get get charged the fee, this is ok if only you are chosen and get the job, if as is usually the case 3-5 company's are chosen they are all charged the fee! No matter who gets the job. Some leads are not real leads the customer just wants an idea of the cost of a job so you will be charged the fee if your chosen and there is no job!! You get billed weekly and it can soon run up! Beware of false requests too, as they sometimes send you emails saying a job poster has seen your profile and would like you to quote i.e. Put your name in the hat to be chosen, this is usually just someone attaching local jobs to you or computer generated going to local tradesmen.

Some leads are not real leads the customer just wants an idea of the cost of a job so you will be charged the fee if your chosen and there is no job!! You get billed weekly and it can soon run up!
Beware of false requests too, as they sometimes send you emails saying a job poster has seen your profile and would like you to quote i.e. Put your name in the hat to be chosen, this is usually just someone attaching local jobs to you or computer generated going to local tradesmen.

I use this site and have only had minor problems with job leads, the customer service could be better as sometimes the leads are a waste of money or a wrong description or higher spec has been given.. when questioned for lead money returned the reply is...' we are cheaper than other lead based sites so out lead costs aren't refunded as we don't take a quarterly payment either.'... so beware and be choosy when purchasing leads.

MyBuilder used to be ok when it first set up. You were invoiced after you completed the work. Trouble is when it became popular, they changed it to buying the lead info. That can mean paying for the pleasure of customers getting an idea of the cost only to decide to scrap their plans

Not a good site, along with any pay per lead site. Tradesmen are left wide open to abuse from customers shortlisting them just to get a quote with no intention of using them. No support from mybuilder for tradesmen as they always side with the job posters.

This is the best of a bad bunch IMO. There are a fair amount of customers on there just touting for the cheapest possible deal but you learn to suss them out fairly early. I use it when I'm quiet and so far it has got me a fair bit of work

Good for when your starting out but customers can be a nightmare. Don't bother with big jobs just go for the small ones and use it to fill out your day.

at first it is a promising website.. good for a new starter looking to get there customer Base off the ground. some of the pricing per lead is unrealistic. also the comment side can be very harsh on businesses. I think before negative or neutral or positive feedback is left I think there should be a 3 to 5 day cooling off period before it goes on the account so if it's bad or neutral it gives the traders time to fix any problems or make amends anything that could be wrong , rather than just go straight onto profile

Mybuilder should only be used as a stop gap to fill in some gaps in your working week. I have obtained some very good return custom from the site but feel it wouldn't necessarily fit all trades ie heating engineers as most I've seen only want quotes.

Does provide you with genuine leads but prices have shot up recently and there also seems to be a lot of new members all fighting for the same work and undercutting each other. Good at navigating and has some good features. If you need to use a lead generating site for the least amount of money (that will cruelly give you viable leads) this is useful.

Not to bad if your phones not ringing enough and need to fill some days up. Slightly better value than rated people

Great lightweight product compared to the old style bender. Everything seems solid and made to last, my only concern would be the nylon former and if that gets knocked in the van and damaged. Really simple to use, I love the fact it is now on one plane which makes "eyeing" up multiple bends on one length of copper much easier. So light in the hand and with the long handled version that I bought it is very easy to pull a bend and match it up to the pre marked angles on the guide. Great how the two pieces just slot together, don't have to carry formers round with you so no losing those or putting them down and searching around for 5 minutes looking for them! I think it's a superb product and build quality is great which I have come to expect from Monument Tools. I do think it could be made and sold a little cheaper though as when buying both the 15mm and 22mm versions you are talking well over £100 and you can pick a decent combi bender up for between £40-£60.

Nice compact filter, very easy to fit with solid isolation valves. The unit is also very easy to service, with it taking only 20/30 seconds to clean along with an annual boiler service.

Really easy way to dose a system. Ideally used on sealed systems and easy to connect to a filling loop and inject in to the system, or add via a towel rail or radiator bleed point.

Fitted the Omega unit with valves. Really easy to fit and a nice, solid unit. Was extremely easy to service as well, was able to clean the magnatite out from the filter in as little as 10 seconds.
