“I have been working in the construction industry since the age of 16, my first job was to build swimming pools back in France. I now manage multi million pound jobs. The idea started when I decided to have my own home and moved to cannock due to work.
The house we moved into was from 1960s, and the walls were fully covered with wallpaper, so we thought that we would buy or hire one of these wallpaper removing steam machines. Unfortunately, we soon found out the walls were not as good as expected, and it became so a big job that we decided to start the process of contacting construction companies.
Not being from the area, I decided to start hunting builders from Google, Yellow pages, 112, 118, local newspapers and ask around. After a few weeks I managed to get 11 contacts, between text messages, voicemails, emails and calls in noisy background. I finally managed to book appointments with 8 of them which is pretty good I think. From these 8 only 6 turned-up. Out of these 6, 1 said the project was too big, the other said was too small, and 4 said I will be giving you a quote by the end of the week.
Unfortunately, only one came back with a quote.
This is when I thought, Surely there must be a way you can post your job online and traders would simply reverse bid on your job? That became the trigger that helped me to think of a way to make people’s life easier – it is when YouKwoteMe.com was born. “
