I posted a enquiry for a tiling job and received at least 3 responses within 60mins - totally unexpected. I appreciated the replies. I am too early to offer a job now however I will be contacting the respondents when the job is fully live.
Beware unwitting customers
Hi pages charges tradies to get jobs and half the time they don’t get the job and are forced to quote as cheap as possible to get the job. This sounds great for the customer but the job will be done in a way that cuts costs (dodgy) The tradies paying to get jobs are either inexperienced or incompetent at their trade and no one calls them from word of mouth or past jobs and they’re forced to pay hipages to get work. The business model is great for hipages, but unfortunately the customer suffers unknowingly.
Wrong type of tradesmen calling.
Wrong type of tradesmen calling.
I didn't want concrete laying and bricklaying.
I have had another quote for timber wall approx $2,200 instead of $5000.
Why do they want 30 words when less was sufficient.
Would give 0 stars if I could.
Have used on 4 separate occasions, never had a single person contact me to quote the job. Just use google and call the top 3 trades that come up with good reviews, hipages is a waste of time. Hipages support staff give generic answers that don’t relate to the question.
This is the first time I have used hipages. I received three quotes promptly using the service and the tiling job has now been completed. I selected David Ross of FABT P/L also known as K and D Floors and Bathrooms for the work. David and his team Kylie and Frank were professional and diligent and a pleasure to work with. Their work is of a high standard and I thoroughly recommend them.
Hi Pages just don't get it.
I've been a Painter with Hi Pages for years, like hundreds of the Trades on here , we are unhappy about the way Hi Pages send leads out that are non contactable, and non refundable, basically, time wasters who post a job with a Glass of Wine in their hand, and in the morning decide they no longer want to go ahead,
And the Tradesman has to bare the cost of this behavior. while Hi Pages rake in the $$$'$.
Hi Pages say, As long as the job has a valid email then the lead is "valid" they, I say, you can right anything at all in front of GMAIL.CO...M and it will be valid. Mickeymousebigears@gmail.com this would qualify as a Hi Pages live email. The behavior of HI Pages and the way they treat Tradesmen with their no lead " refunds" will lead to the demise of this platform. You can only tick off so many Tradesmen before they all get to know what this platform is about. the last month i had three time waster who never replied to my email or phone call, why should i have to bare the cost of this, there must be a better way.
Lowpages Just Don’t
Damn shame I can’t give less stars, over priced leads on people who can’t afford professionals though keep in mind this is hipages (more apt lowpages) target market, if your thinking of spending money with this rort then just donate it to me at least I’ll send you pics of the great time I’m having with your hard earned wasted money
Saves time and is easy to use
Looking for a floor sand and polishing company and didn’t know where to start. Hipages made the process very easy and 3 companies responded and followed up in a
Very timely manner. Very happy with the whole process.
Very pleased with the extremely quick outcome
3 people referred by Hipages, showed up promptly as agreed which resulted in one of them being hired and the plastering job is to be undertaken next week.
All persons interested in the job were keen, very friendly and quick to submit a quote.
To search for local experts in the field made easy
I had the opportunity to talk to 4 suggested Solar Power companies.
Each had very professional staff.
My choice in the end was between 2 companies... their products were very similar... as were their prices... it was a difficult choice, both quotes were worthy of consideration.
I always try to work with local trades people.
Good job hipages

Avoid this Plumber
Before I start, this is not a review regarding HiPages. I would rate them 10 out 10 for providing the service. I was after a plumber and received about 4 responses. I just had a carport installed and I needed a plumber to connect the downpipe to the stormwater drain. I had about 4 quotes and chose Sam from S R Plumbing who came and connected the drain for me. When it rained the next night and I noticed water seepage across my driveway. I called Sam and he came out and "fixed" the leakage. The same day that this happened, I had Black granite la...id in the driveway. It rained again in the next few days and I noticed a leakage of water thru the black granite. I called another plumber who spent about an hour fixing the pipes that Sam had supposedly fixed. The newly laid granite had to be dug up and new pipes installed. The plumber advised thata pipe joint had not been sealed. If you require a plumber, I would advise that you avoid using Sam from SR Plumbing in the ACT
Do Trades even want the work?
First time user of Hi Pages,
Don't think I'll bother again, I was after 3 quotes for a simple plumbing job, 1 scheduled a time to come by for a quote, didn't show up, 2nd one scheduled a time and at last minute has texted "caught up on another job, Don't know when he'll get here, but most likely not today"
I'm a night shift worker so I don't appreciate having to break my sleep schedule for trades that don't bother showing up.

Stay away from hi pages what they do is say they are giving you $300 worth of free credit , what it is they already send that $300 worth of credit to other companys 10 min or 30 mins before you so lead is claimed already but will still charge you , they sign up any man and a dog with no qualifications as long as hi pages gets there $500. -$900 a month doesnt matter , when you on pay per lead they will charge you $15-$20 a lead when you ring the customer he states the job was taking 10 mins ago even though you just received lead , when you dispute this with hi pages they say no this is a genuine lead haha they are bases in manilla and have no experience or idea what they are doing all they want to do is charge charge charge you for little or no return ive had a few yrs experience with them they use to be great but not now new owners gone downhill stay away
I will never use hi pages again... I found a trades handyman very good but I had to cancel the way planned due o health reasons I cold not complete the part i needed to before he arrived. Due to this system... He could not be tracked down to advise him. We cannot find him on our books even with reference number I was told. Not a good way to run a business.
