Servicestart can give you a good start when you need help in your home, at the office or in your neighbourhood. This is how it works:

It is free to post a request and there is no obligation to hire any of the companies offering you quotes. The providers pay a small fee to be able to contact you and spend time on sending you and offer. Hence, please use the service in a responsible manner and reply to their offer, even if you decide not to accept it for any reason.

Your information is secure. Your name and contact details are shown to a maximum of five providers and only after they confirm a serious interest in helping you. You receive an email from Servicestart as soon as a company wants to give you an offer. You are given the name and contact details of the company and access to the ratings and reviews from other users who hired the company previously. Your request is automatically closed when five companies have reported interest in providing you with their quote but you may close it before this at any time.

More advice for a successful project

Please consider that a well-written request receives more and better quotes. Hence, try to write a clear project description. You may take use of the pre-defined questions to add as much information as possible about your job. In addition, please use the free-text box to give your own description.

Compare quotes, ratings and qualifications

Once you have been put in contact with interested providers you are able to compare them. You are given the company details and reviews from previous clients they have won through Servicestart. Make sure to ask the company for any additional qualifications needed such as professional licenses and certificates.

Book an appointment

A personal meeting will give you the chance to ask questions directly to the provider and to evaluate how suitable they would be for your job. The meeting will also allow the provider to better calibrate their offer and price estimate to you. Many providers cannot give an exact price quote unless given the chance to meet and evaluate the project on-site. Of course, this mainly applies to building projects.

Select your provider and sign a contract

Once you feel confident you have found the right provider it is important that the job is performed according to expectations. Make a detailed agreement with your provider to cover time schedule, type and level of remuneration, inspection and quality control and guarantees. Here are more tips

Good luck with your project!
