Beware of Oneflare.
Hired a landscaper on Oneflare to build a retaining wall. This is what I got for my troubles. Unlicensed tradies. Damage to my property is heartbreaking. Whole job needs to be ripped out and started from scratch.
Now pursuing our legal rights.
Don’t waste your time, Do not give credit card as your money disappears and it’s your fault .
Calls do not come through although your phone rings then they take your money to top up subscription waste of time
I can only advise as a small business owner to try free listing on Yellow pages
Someone you can TRUST
I used Oneflare to hire a company for steamed cleaning of my carpets (in the end of the tenancy). The company´s name is MaidPro. The service was booked for today but nobody came and the phone number was not available. I am much more than disappointed.
They don't publish your negative ratings...
I publish one concrete job and I was provided with one tradie. They caused a real problem in their job . I reported them to Oneflare and tried to put reviews for the company named as AS CONCRETE PTY. They didn't publish my reviews. It always came up as technical error. Then after struggling making attempts many times I emailed Oneflare to help with that. My goal was to share my experience with people who could be next victim. They wrote they would help me in publishing. Which never happened.
So be aware if you are choosing any tradies through Oneflare by looking at their good reviews. They could be fake or made.
Customer service is poor
The customer support is poor. Very unhelpful and didn't try hard enough to fix my issue which was very basic. All I wanted to know was why the notifications for messages stopped showing in my email as I don't use the app, I don't know when I'm being messaged. The response I you was they are being sent to my email. Ummm I just told you they're not. It has affected my ability to reply to businesses in a timely manner yet they don't care when I told them.
One flare incompetence
Looking for a gardener oneflare used wrong name and mobile number. Contacted their support and continued use of wrong name etc. Useless and incompetent. Do not use under any circumstance.
Used oneflare for business
Signed up for oneflare for My business. Paid $199 per month. Got minimal leads and zero work. Stayed with them for 3 months.
Not worth the money. Not enough leads and overpriced compared to their competitors. Wouldn't recommend.
I feel scammed
I signed up to oneflare for my business. Straight away I recieved one quote request (first one free). Soon after i recieved a second and thought I'd give this a go. I placed down $20 they took $6.90 for just the one quote. Never heard from either quotes but also that was it. It all dried up. Just seemed a little coincidental that it all stopped as soon as I gave them money.
Way too expensive too. $6.90 for a quote for something that may not happen for any of the quotes seems all too much. If the "potential" client recieved three quotes oneflare recieved $20.70 with most probably no quoter recieving any funds.
Be careful Businesses its a trap
I am an appliance technician, and suggest you to understand and read the t&c carefully. Was having a good enough credit and not able to use without paying every month.
Oneflare don't have enough lids , they send the lid which is not relevant, like your area or product is different,
And using my star ratings for making their rating better.
Hired an alleged handyman from this service who claimed he did tilework. Turns out he didn't, made a mess of three other tiles chipping all of them in the process of replacing one tile. In addition, the one tile he attempted to replace is sitting higher than all of the other tiles. The entire job he did is a disaster, to say the least!
Also, the individual hired from Oneflare also used a grinder Without any vacuum/suction and porcelain tile dust went airborne coating my entire 600 square meter(internal area) on two levels of my home!
The...entire experience has been nothing short of a nightmare......having to go out and spend much more money in hiring a licensed professional tiler and a commercial professional cleaner, to rectify and clean up the entire mess that this individual who was hired through Oneflare created! I would not recommend using Oneflare unless they start actually vetting the individuals whom advertise services on their platform, that's called being accountable, responsible, professional for their platform and any of the individuals who advertise on it! The entire experience is completely intolerable and unacceptable and no one should have to go through this!
Don't use a company ? that doesn't fix it's mistakes
I posted a request for AUTO ELECTRICIAN after no take up on the original request Oneflare did search further but the two businesses that turned up were motor mechanics with limited electrical knowledge and the person who came admitted this after pulling the centre console apart and going online to a forum that told him what I already knew that I needed an "auto electrician" not an auto mechanic with limited knowledge since then this company has not accepted their mistake and even went further to tell me I should have third degreed the mechanic...al firm involved. They can't seem to see their failure as people who supply qualified people for work you need doing . My cost was numerous including cleaning my car for covid 19 . The part that takes the gaul in all of this is their advert. "10 Best Auto Electricians in Adelaide" that is the biggest lie I have ever read apart from President Donald Trump.
Remember! Oneflare takes NO responsibility for their technicians.
I had paid a deposit for a job that never took place because the electrician never showed up. (Total power installation is the company) I would suggest not to blindly trust technicians found of Oneflare. Oneflare takes no responsibility or action.
Don’t use Oneflare not worthy of even one star!
They accept no responsibility for companies they recommend who take your money and do not deliver goods or services paid for. Oneflare’s response to this is “just write a bad review!”
Nice reviews for your businesses, ‘Oneflare’ after being ripped off by one of your referred builders.
Not many good reviews for the companies you represent.
After notifying your website about one of your businesses taking cash deposit and not competing the job they were paid for, then they advise you that they had given deposit back without questioning the validity of their business practices or asking for proof that they paid any returns of deposit. You need to protect the customers as it is your website that promotes shonky untruthful businesses under your name. Untrustworthy operators and website who protects untruthful businesses with previous complaints and reported stolen customers money.
I have more proof if needed and stop deleting peoples feedback to hide shonky operators.
Only one reply and they were dodgy
I'm not impressed. I posted an ad for a removalist and got only one reply from a company with very bad reviews.
I'll not be employing them, thanks to the reviewers.

Posted tiling job
Posted a tiling job was only able to get one response which was a waste of time as I wasnt able to respond with pictures same day. I queried wether the job could be done only to be told they couldnt do the job, with no reason other than it appeared to be only on offer for one day with no price, and only after pictures were sent. Also didnt even bother replying to tell me until I followed up. If this is the level of service from providers its useless.
Recommends dodgy companies
passed me details onto my moovers and they scammed me, took my money and never showed up! Only went with that company as you guys recommended them! So upset and annoyed pleSe be warned guys none of these recommendations can be trusted
Oneflare accept scammer as their registered business
They don't screen the business registered with them, as such our personal contacts get released to the scammer. We being contacted by a scammer (Coast2Coast / Coastal Roof Tiling) and took away our money without completing the job.
Apparently the scammer has court case (I just realised after a simple google search); not sure why Oneflare not screen those as part of their engagement with the business. Our personal contact being shared by Oneflare to scammer.
Don't Trust, Very Very Poor
When signed up was explained one process now the goalposts have changed. Total lack of honesty and transparency from this company. Do not trust!!!!!!
False leads and profiteering that is all Oneflare is about.

Shaggy Tails Dog grooming, qouted for a job for me Joanne Nehmer. They are scamming and I believe looking at stealing pets. I gave them the suburb and street name. They wanted the number.

I said I would report them to the police and to you, I have reported through scam watch, and am now reporting to you. Can you please let me know that you have taken some action.
