Finding a local plumber online used to be incredibly hard. Now with Fixington, it couldn’t be simpler or faster.
There are two ways you can find a local plumber online. There’s the old way, which involves trawling through countless unreliable websites, and there’s the new way, which involves going straight to Fixington to find a local plumber online fast.
First, let’s look at the old, outdated way…
Does this sound familiar? Why is it that we live in a world where we can order or book almost anything online — whether that’s a five-star hotel in Wandsworth or a USB to jack adapter — but we still have to go scurrying around offline to find a decent plumber?
Well, scurry no more. Here’s the new way to find a local plumber online…
This is how it should be. This is how easy it is to find pretty much anything else online. So how does Fixington make things so simple? And why were things so difficult in the past?
The tradesperson industry is fractured — and this includes plumbing. Most tradespeople are independent, so difficulty finding the right tradespeople for a job has become something of a crisis in the UK.
On the one hand, it’s good that most tradespeople are independent because, in the long run, this is better for consumers. More independence means more competition and more competition means lower prices for consumers. This isn’t just true of the trade industry; it’s how economies work.
On the other hand, people are rightly frustrated by the fact that they can’t find a plumber easily when they want to. There’s no one place to find the UK’s many independent plumbers. Or, rather, there didn’t use to be.
With Fixington, you can find a self-employed plumber in your area quickly. All of our plumbers are members of a UK government competent person scheme and use the Fixington app. For both our tradespeople and our customers, the whole system runs like Uber.
For plumbers and other tradespeople, the Fixington app gives them a schedule breaking down exactly when they’re available. For customers, you can pick a time that suits you and we’ll find someone to sort out your exact problem in your location.
It’s how the trade industry should work in the 21st Century.
So whether you need a professional, reliable plumber to install a washing machine, repair your taps, or anything in between, you can do it through Fixington — quickly and easily.
