In late 2007 my husband and I bought a house that was and still is in need of much renovation. We have both undertaken various simple DIY projects in the past, but the variety of work that was required called for skilled professionals such as plumbers, electricians, plasterers and several other...

I have an electrical business which is not doing so well and We decide to make an experience of 2-3 months on RP to get new customers for our domestic electrical services. So for the last 3 months we worked with RatedPeople. Initially we were willing to offer jobs for good prices so we could...

As a signed up tradesman to rated people I have to say that my view of this web service is becoming more dim by the day. The service that rated people offer to the customer is non verified or validated. Any tradesman can get his or her friend to post a job and then get the friend to rate them...

No verifiication, just a money-making website

My partner and I advertised some jobs on RatedPeople, having read some good reviews online. We registered and immediately got their acknowledgements (one for each job we posted) by email: "From: automated@ratedpeople.com Subject: Thanks for posting your job, now sit back and relax!" "All you have...

I recently employed a builder from the Rated People website, with dire consequences. His work was of a very poor standard, he refused to give an invoice, and left it to me to arrange collection of the scaffolding and skip. His work was of such poor quality that I had to employ someone else to...

I signed up for rated people approx a month ago for the £10.00 starter fee which takes me up to August. Yes I've had a ton of possible leads, I've bought four at an extra cost to me of £43.10 non of the customers allowed me to quote. In summary 1 decided to cancel his job altogether, 1 used...

We have used rated people twice for quotes, and each time we have encountered tradesmen who cannot provide written references or show past work. Not one person could show insurance details, and most wanted cash, this leads us to believe cowboys are probably trading from Rated People, and we have...

i have been a rated person now for 2 days. what a load of cobblers. i have had 55 texts messages(which i payed for in £10 blocks) telling me people need my services. then, wait for it, i log in to their site and have to pay between £12 - 18 to quote the job i have nt even got. tried £50 worth yesterday and have not had a single call. whats great about rated people is that the customers dont even answer the phone or return your messages. PANTS thats what it is !

some genuine customer but very hard to find them

WASTE OF MONEY

I have been a member of Rated People for about 5 years and I have cancelled 3 times due to not being able to get hold of customers. . Each time I re-join they give me free leads and if I am unable to get hold of the customers they reimburse you in terms of another lead. Recently though they have...

An Irish plasterer/renderer called Paul Quinn from Rated people website quoted me on a £4600.00 job. His behaviour was worse than that of a cowboy builder. His rating on rated people is 5 star , but his conduct and the quality of his work justifies a rating of MINUS 5 star. The guy was desperate...

I was so hopeful for this site - I hoped it would mean that I could depend on the tradespeople it had on there as I could vet them on there in Ebay feedback style. I had 3 quotes from 3 tradespeople to do some plastering. All of them contacted me: 2 turned up but the third never turned up despite...

I have been on Rated People for a couple of months and from my experience its not good at all. I got the texts at first, then when they had run out, lots of emails with job postings. The people put a budget on the jobs they want carried out. These start at £100, £250, £500, £1000, £2000 and £4000...

“Rated People is a total scam”

TOO MANY TO LIST!

I'm a plumber & I've poured a sickening amount of money into their organisation in recent & desperate times. I'm a lot worse off than when I started. I was paying £50+ for leads that if I got the job I was set to earn less than £80, any dearer the quote and I wouldn't have got the job - loosing...

“Tradesmans point of view”

published 21/09/2013

none

very expensive, poor service

I am a tradesman with over forty years experience. We started using Rated People when they first started. As you may or may not be aware the contractor has to pay for the leads (customer contact details). At first the cost of the leads was quite reasonable. This soon changed when they started...
