At Fixington, we’re proud to have some of the UK’s finest builders, plumbers and domestic electricians using our app in order to give you the best possible service. We decided to talk to one of them.
“I have been an electrician for over 12 years, but I decided to set up on my own three years ago.”
All of our emergency electricians and tradespeople are self-employed businesspeople. Many of them have years of experience (over a decade in this case) and all of them are members of a UK government competent person scheme. We are proud of the level of expertise our tradesmen have but don’t just take our word for it; check out our glowing reviews.
“I have been using the fixington app for about a year now.”
Many of our tradespeople have been using the Fixington app for a long time and some have been using it ever since we started out. Our service works two ways: it’s a great way for tradesmen to organise their busy schedules, but it’s also a hassle-free way for customers to book tradespeople online.
“I always leave my diary at home, so that’s why I downloaded the app in the first place. Now I’m able to manage my schedule a lot easier while on the go.”
In a nutshell, this is why we created the Fixington app. Four years ago, the number of independent tradespeople in the UK was falling.
Most tradespeople like being independent, and the competition created by a mostly independent market benefits customers too, but the organisation and paperwork can make it a nightmare. When you work for one big company, it’s easier to keep track of your work. When you’re an independent tradesperson, you need to keep track of every job individually. Tradespeople found it hard to compete with big-name brands without some kind of support.
The Fixington app changes all that. In 2017, tradespeople are singing our app’s praises because of how much easier it makes their work. Currently, there are around 500,000 self-employed tradespeople in the UK, which is about 94.2% of the total. We want to keep it that way by supporting local tradespeople with a user-friendly app that provides them with a steady stream of work.
“I would highly recommend using the Fixington app. Not only can you manage your own schedule, but customers are able to book appointments around the tradesman’s schedule. It gives tradesmen another source of work.”
Self-employed people — whether they’re writers or domestic electricians — will take any reliable source of work they can find, so long as they’re not tied to one company or one kind of job. Fixington gives tradespeople exactly that. Emergency electricians, boiler experts and professional plumbers love using our app because they can easily find work through it while maintaining their independence.
“Fixington makes it simple to book an electrician online and the customer knows they are getting a fully-vetted and qualified tradesman.”
All of the tradespeople who use the Fixington app are professionals who are members of a UK government competent person scheme. It’s quick and easy to book someone online with Fixington and our standards also give our customers peace of mind.
