The Multi-trade difference

There are plenty of companies out there competing for your business - and you need to make sure you're armed with all the facts before you make a decision about which one to choose. Here are a few things to check before you decide - we're confident that if you're looking for great service you'll choose Multi-Trade!

  • Does the company or tradesperson you're considering offer free quotations?
  • Do they offer an open and honest pricing structure with no hidden costs?
  • Do they have a contactable office, not just a mobile in case of any queries?
  • Does anyone answer the phone in the day?
  • Are their tradespeople honest, reliable, polite and vetted?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then give us a call - we can confidently answer 'yes' to all of these questions. Not sure? Check out our testimonials page to see what some of our previous customers think of our customer service!
