From the seed of an idea a year ago to a site that is now ready for launch, people finally have a place to go when they need help to find plumbers, find builders, find architects and other tradespeople.
Miranda de Freston, Founding Director
It’s through my own personal struggle to find recommended tradespeople that I knew I had to do something to make this better. I have had a lot of support for this project from friends and family but also from other homeowners out there who are eager for this service to become available.
Last week we received an e-mail from Jo Poole, Birmingham. She, like so many others, has struggled to find what she’s looking for in the past and can’t wait for the site to be live:
“I can’t count the number of times I have poured over the Yellow Pages, desperately trying to remind myself that a big advert does not necessarily mean that a tradesman is honest and trustworthy.
You are entirely right when you say that the “ask the neighbour” culture has vanished. From time to time I watch the sort of television programmes such as “Rogue Traders” and I find these programmes so frustrating because they don’t offer any real tips on how to avoid these sorts of tradesmen, and serve only to remind me of what a nightmare this sort of thing can be.”
A lot of hard work has gone into making this website a user-friendly, practical solution for both homeowners and tradesmen – and we can’t wait to help you! We really want to develop a community online, not just another faceless website, so we are planning lots of exciting things for the Be Inspired section and welcome any feedback from you for new ideas.
So, please feel free to browse the site and recommend JuggleFrogs to everybody you know. If you have any feedback then please contact us – we’d love to hear from you. Happy browsing!Posted in:
