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!
Scam, 90% of phone calls would hang up.
for a company this platform is the worst! the call system comes down to if you can answer the phone fast enough, talking about under 4 seconds and even then the phone call cuts out or another company gets the call.
felt like sometimes they do fact phone call and leads.
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!”
From a business perspective
Digital Marketing/ Graphic Design/ Website
Our company is for Digital Marketing, Graphic Design & Websites.
I'm going to follow on from the review below "Not for my type of business" After much thought and review of the service I decided to give it ago. I confirmed and confirmed and confirmed that if you didn't win the job that you would get your credits back. HA! you don't. Up to 8 people quote costing anywhere between $25-45 dollars (Oneflare makes up $320 per job you quote), if the person simply looks at the quote and doesn't respond or goe...s to another person who quoted you lose the credits. When I brought this up with Oneflare they went over their recorded messages and each time they used language that could be easily manipulated to go back on. Their sales team is extremely manipulative and you won't get a truthful representation of the business upfront. The quality of the leads is appalling, certainly not worth 25 - 45 each. No response after no response, or joe block wanting a certificate designed for his grandson..... We are not expensive at all compared to other agencies but the pricing they want is utterly ridiculous. Dont expect to speak with them about there job or get any response between being hounded by the other 7 quotes and well as all the calls from Oneflare they won't even want to talk about the project. It's by far the most expensive quoting platform and it's only geared for Oneflare to make money! (Imagine quoting for a $50 logo, Oneflare make $200 off the 8 quotes, 7 people lose money and one gets $50.) So who is the real winner here........
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.

Terrible scam app
We signed up for one flare as a painting business 2 months ago now, we paid $200 to sign up and we were getting no responses from customers who were were paying any where from $30-$40 to quote, I called and they told me that the sign up was not done correctly as you aren’t meant to sign up online (even though it allows you to) and that would be the reason why we were not hearing back as the account wasn’t set up properly, they said in order for my account to be getting responses I had to pay ANOTHER $200 for them to do it again even though this...was a problem on their end, any way we continued the month and out of our $400 credits we only heard back from a tiny amount of the customers we had tried to contact to give a quote to, all the rest of these “customers” that we paid to contact were not responsive or had fake numbers etc. They have a refund button which is meant to be for un responsive customers which we would try to use but minority of the time the refunds would get declined as a customer had decided to go with another trade before we had even got to contact them, got decline because the person had opened our message so they have “responded” but the person wouldn’t reply or answer their phone, the list goes on. I called up numerous times the office people are EXTREMELY rude, the account operators are completely useless and impossible to get ahold of even when you leave voicemails, we have never had such a bad experience on such an expensive app it’s the biggest scam, only 3 people are meant to be able to quote a job but by the few customers we got to quote they had informed us they were not happy with the app as their phones got bombarded with non stop calls not just the 3 they were meant to, these “clients” should know that as a business we have to pay a lot of money to contact them to provide them with a quote so they can understand the app isn’t a joke as some had just put adds up for a laugh, the app is used completely wrong and I would speak very badly of it in future to everyone that ask about it. Biggest scam and will never return to this app if your thinking about signing up all I can say is good luck wasting all your money! I have also tried to give the oneflare team a chance to rectify this if possible through product review with no response as always.
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.
I lost $1000 because this business only lets good reviews posted. I now want to leave a bad review for the business which took my money and didn’t provide the service but they didn’t allow the review to be posted.
Have used this for my business. But never again
Have used this occasionally for my business, but costs a lot to quote some jobs.
Even once you pay to quote for a job, there is no guarantee the customer will even get in contact with you to actually go quote the job properly.
When you contact oneflare they couldn’t care less, refuse to refund or credit you when the customer doesn’t even give you a chance to quote the job
Disgraceful how they treat businesses and will never use again
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.
I am using this website for my business, they are scammer, lie and change polices manytime
I had paid 6mths membership, every time I give quote, the client had hired already but Oneflare did not update their website this. So I paid credit for give quote but client said he hired already. I asked oneflare refund for quoting this client who already hired before even I give quote but Oneflare did not give me refund. These issues happened many times but refuse to give refund and keep charging fee.
This company is money grab organization from businesses. DO not use this company, not many chance of getting client from this website
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.
Unethical on showing Reviews
I had a job with a removalist listed on oneflare. They did a really bad job but had a good rating on oneflare (4.2) and good reviews. I thought I should leave a review for them so others don't use them. I realised after posting the review even though it says it's posted I can't see my review on that business page. Tried contacting oneflare using their chat and they said they can see my review on their side sharing a screenshot. I tried multiple browsers searching for the review and still could not see that. It seems it's mainly showing good reviews. With regards to the business total stars it's now 4.3!
No verification done on tradies
Because this site does not perform any checks against the businesses posted on the site it attracts frauds and conmen. I got conned by one of the builders from this site.
What is the point?
Have posted a plumbing job in metro Brisbane and waited 24 hours for anyone to respond. No response at all. Good concept, but if Oneflare doesn't have trades people signed up to respond or provide fulfillment, then this website goes nowhere.

Hi Donna, we have an article on our Help center that can answer your question.
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 give it to them when on the morning that the job was booked. They said they wanted it now. 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.
