Paint this town.. with Pat McDonnell paints! Its a ctchay jingle! I was thinking it might be a good idea to start a new a thread where users can recommend tradesmen. We had a leak not so long ago and getting a plumber at short notice was difficult. So if people could recommend plumbers, carpenters, electricans etc that they have dealt with before and found to be good. +4Was this answer helpful?

I think you've highlighted soetnhimg interesting there. I work for a company that provides . - thought I'd get that in!Of course, we think we do an excellent job and we provide services to all areas of London.I think for recommendations, the social networks are the way to go.For one thing, you can get a good idea of the person giving the endorsement or complaining about the service they've received.The problem with review sites is that they are generally anonymous and therefore open to abuse from competitors or used as a sounding board from the occasional nutcase.Generally, people stop and think before writing a review if they know other people can see who they are. The feedback tends to be more accurate and honest. And that is better for everyone. Even the business owner and even if it's negative feedback.This is a . I do sometimes wonder why everyone always gets so hung up on finding a local person. Especially for services. I can see why you want a local restaurant because it's near your home and you actually go to the restaurant. So, it needs to be near to you.But when you need a service - like a plumber - they come to you. So, as long as they cover that area, it doesn't matter to you whether they are local or not.Also, I'm sorry to say that tradespeople in general can be very unreliable. The small one man bands are constantly juggling jobs. They're worried about getting the next job and keeping their workflow going, so they often take on too many jobs. That's why they are sometimes late, never turn up at all or fail to finish the job.Don't get me wrong, there are some very good tradespeople. But, everyone is well aware that this is the stereotype. And it's not wrong often enough.The larger companies spend lots of money on marketing and therefore they don't need to juggle jobs. By and large they can manage the workflow for their plumbers and ideally everyone gets their plumber on time and their job finished.That's the theory anyway. But if it doesn't work out at least you've got someone to complain to and not just a mobile phone number!So, how do you find the best plumbing companies? Well, my theory (and it's not perfect) is natural selection. Type in the search term in Google and generally speaking you will find the best plumbing company or whichever service you are looking for. So search for terms like 'plumber clapham' or 'plumber whichever area you are in'.My argument is that you need to spend a relatively large amount of money to get to the top of the searches in Google and it's very competitive - especially for services. And that only successful companies, who are managing their businesses properly and therefore have to care about customers and their feedback, manage to get to the top and stay there long enough for anyone to call them.Call it 'Google Selection' if you like.

This is getting a bit more sctbeujive, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose. [url=]isfqsccnkwi[/url] [link=]abuufme[/link]
