Hipages: The Easiest Way to Hire a Tradie


My husband isn’t the handiest guy around the house. He’ll be the first to admit it!

So there are always fiddly little jobs that need doing and we never get around to because it seems really hard to find a tradesman.

It’s either by word of mouth or Google and then trying to organise quotes. It’s so time-consuming! I just can’t be bothered with the palaver.

I am always too busy and can never find any time to do it. The last thing I’m thinking about when I get a spare minute is ringing around for quotes.

Enter Hipages:

It’s a website that offers every kind of tradesman, all in one place. They are pre-screened for ABNs and all licenses are verified making the whole process smoother.

It’s so simple and easy to use.

  • Sign up
  • Enter what job you are looking for
  • Specify when you want the job done
  • Add a brief description of the job and your details

That’s it. You just sit back and wait for the quotes to come in.

One of my outstanding jobs was a professional carpet cleaner for our bedrooms so I thought I would put hipages to the test.

I posted my job and I was literally getting quotes in minutes. That’s the beauty of it! The tradies come to you.

Perfect for us time-poor mums! All you have to do is sit back and choose the best quote.

hipages support you through the entire process of getting a job done too. I was contacted on numerous occasions to find out how it was going and if I needed more quotes. It was great to have someone there to assist so promptly.

The job

I booked in with YS Cleaning Services. They have 8 recommendations on hipages and came through with the best quote. They also offered free Scotch Guard. Sold.

    The whole experience was pretty painless. The tradesman turned up a bit late on the day but was mindful to let me know and he kept me in the loop, which was really professional.

    He got the job done fairly quickly and he even gave the carpets an extra once over just to be sure.

    I paid online via the website when the job was completed. Too easy! You don’t have to worry about having cash on the day or what type of payment the tradie prefers.

    There is a payment message waiting for you via the message centre and you simply follow the prompts. It then alerts the business that a payment had been made. Genius.

    The Result

    I was very happy with the result. What do you think?

    If you have any issues after the job is done you can contact the tradies via the message centre. I forgot to ask how long it will take for the carpet to dry! I just shot them a message and they answered immediately.

    I am very impressed with hipages and will definitely be using it again. Anything for an easy life! I’m always online anyway and there is even an app so you can hire a tradie on the go!
