Dodgy work, dodgy tradies
I placed a job to repair a convection oven whose turntable was no longer turning. I only had 3 responses. After looking up ABNs one of them appeared dodgy. Funnily enough, browsing through one star reviews here, if you look for a review by "Glen" he mentions the headache he had with a "Stephen Locke" - this guy is back on the site under a similar name still making quotes! Hah! So much for your quality control and vetting process.
I went with another guy. Seemed keen but communication became more challenging after I told him I'd selected him for the job.
My convection oven had a dead motor which he replaced, all good. Then he put the frame back incorrectly so he had to come back again to fix it.
Less than 2 months later it's broken again. When I tried investigating it appears like the turntable shaft is no longer securely attached to the motor. I took a mirror and tried investigating the part and it seems like the knob on the motor is no longer there, which is why the shaft is not securely attached. Either the wrong part was put it (which made it work for a while) or I was given a dodgy part which fell apart after less than two months!!
I even ended up purchasing a tray because I thought the tray was the problem because the grooves were a bit worn down but clearly that wasn't the problem.
Also, since the oven has been "fixed" it seems like it hasn't been placed back into the wall as securely as before.
I paid $300 for this nonsense. As part of my fee I was charged $135 for the part but a parts supplier online shows it is only $45 -- pathetic markup.
I wrote a review detailing my concerns on the website and it only showed up as "Could improve quality of workmanship". I'm going to file a report with Fair Trading tomorrow against both the tradie and the Service Seeking in hopes of getting some of my money back and so that hopefully some other sucker doesn't have to go through the same thing I did.
I'm going to find someone else to fix my convection oven -- and I'm NOT using this useless website with its dodgy tradies. I say stay away. You're better off Googling.
It's raining quotes
Requested a quote for a plumbing job. In a matter of minutes I received a lot of them with a good variety of choices . The service was prompt and efficient. Cheers
So many more responses so much quicker then other pages I have tried.
Yet to have them do the work as I only posted today, they are scheduled to come this week but I was so impressed with the responses I got so many i had to pause the ads after 5 minutes.
Finally, someone who gets back to you instantly
I tried this in desperation of getting some work done around the house. Within a few hours I had replies in my inbox and on my phone, with people who wanted the work.
Thank you for your service it is amazing.
Brilliant time saver
So many replies and quotes as compared to when you contact individual tradies when many never bother to get back to you . Also these tradies appear to be genuinely seeking work and offer competitive quotes .
Easy way to obtain quotes.
So easy. Received more than one quote. The firm engaged arrived on time and men were professional and pleasant. I recommend this ap. Instead of “fingers doing the walking” one point of contact so much easier.
This is perfect!
Quick with responses and service seeking gives you options to choose from! I wanted a quick and no mucking around service to do my garners ASAP and service seeking pointed me into the right direction. I Highly recommend!
A great place to start if you want to do reno projects!
61 interested vendors in 2 days ready to come to provide free quote for my bathroom reno. Scheduled 2 inspections the next day, with written quotes within the same day.
Service Thus far
On test the dishwasher last night it started to work again. Decided to defer doing anything as it is pointless in having a service person attend to a non-existent fault.
Time efficient and Easy to use
I have been looking for a tiler to check my property and fix some sealants. Within minutes I received quotes & tilers ringing me for more details. Made my life easier!
Posted a small job and had a number of responses within the hour which was great. It would be good to say whether you wanted a phone call or email or not (maybe it does and I can't remember) as I was a bit overwhelmed with response. However that's great to be able to choose from. Would be good if there was a way of all the unsuccessful ones knowing they missed out as I feel obligated to let everyone know how...
Within minutes of posting for a concrete quote I had 7 emailed quotes and two phone calls to choose from. I was very pleasantly surprised and will certainly be using this again.
Came across the site by chance, after getting a great result and finding a and simple effective solution for my requirement i would recommend to anyone wanting fast and reliable service
lady in need
I am very impressed by this service. They put you in touch with quality trade companies at no cost. These companies offer very cost competitive services to meet a variety of needs.
A lovely neat job and reasonably priced
I received a call within a couple of hours the Carpenter arrived next day to quote and do the job he was very polite reasonably priced and did an excellent job. I am very impressed and would recommend.
Quick response from prospective Tradies
Requested quotes for the replacement of our boundary fence. Received 7 quotes within a couple of hours. Quick and easy way to find a Tradie. Now to sort through the quotes and arrange for the job to be completed.
Excellent service for gardening job
I received 4 calls within 10 minutes. One person visited my premises at 2pm the same day and another at 4pm and this is the one that got the job. He's coming at 8am on Wednesday to cpmplete the job. I'm extremely pleased with this service and I'll definitely be recommending ServiceSeeking.com.au to family and friends.
What a wonderful way to get some jobs done!
I needed a plumber for a toilet changeover and quickly got 5 keen quotes from easygoing helpful people. Make sure that you have the job well described on the form and include photos or any must-haves.
Needed a plumber for installing a new gas stove. Hadn't used Service Seeking before. Simple form and three quotes received in half an hour - the first in 7 minutes! By the end of the day (when I paused quoting) I had another eight quotes. Accepted the third quote and had the job booked in for the following day. Very happy with the response and the job done. Will most certainly be using Service Seeking again. Well done.
I will not waste money again, i can't contact with Clients. They just post request for tradies but no one replay to me. Service seeking haven't any responsibility against of fake clients.
Service seeking always try to give me subscription offers, but whats the point for me? When i can't get a job since last month till now. There is no guarantee to win any job even your quotation is crazy cheep. I just won a painting job with unbelievable quotation $250 for painting and patching 2 bedroom and 1 bathrooms. Its really cheap for couple days job.
I think service seeking must just sent 1 lead to 2 or 3 tradies نو for more than
