When it comes to finding reliable local services, it can be hard to know who to trust for quality and value for money.
You hear so many horror stories about botch jobs, people over charging for certain services and just generally not providing a good quality service at a reasonable rate...so where do you turn to find competitive prices from quality professionals?
Recently we have been trying out a fantastic website called Bidvine which enables users to search for professionals in their local area - no matter what task you need carried out, chances are you can get a quote for it on Bidvine.
Some of the most popular searches include Painters & Decorators, Personal Trainers, Man with van and even piano lessons.
But I decided to use it to try to find a baby photographer local to us...we have wanted to have some professional photos taken of Sailor for a while but I have always struggled to find a photographer locally who comes highly recommended, offers services we can afford and is willing to travel to us...after all with 3 children under 4, travelling to a photographers studio could be a stressful experience for everybody and may not make for the most relaxing environment for baby photos!
All you need to do is go to the Bidvine home page, select the service you're looking for and enter your postcode.
Depending on the service you require, you then answer a few quick questions to help narrow down your search...enter your email address and Bidvine does the rest!
They say to allow 3 working days for responses, but I started to receive quotes through the same day from local photographers who fit the bill...you then simply go through the email offers from the service providers until you find one that sounds right for you! So simple!
If you need to find local professionals and you want to be sure you're getting value for money, I highly recommend giving Bidvine a try!
