Many people often follow recommendations from friends to find a tradesperson, however, we also know that these tradespeople are booked up for months in advance and unable to meet immediate deadlines or perhaps your job is too small for them to undertake.

It is then when we turn to the internet to try and find someone who is reliable and available to carry out the work. The problem with finding someone on the internet is trying to find out whether they have good references to back their work. It will come as no surprise that some 45,000 people called Citizens Advice last year seeking help with their home improvement and maintenance problems, and the Federation of Master Builders estimates cowboy contractors cost the UK economy £10bn a year.

Yes, there are many trade platforms out there such as Checkatrade, Trustmark and MyBuilder, however, if you look deeper you will often find that people do not rate them and that all the tradespeople on these sites are paying to get work. 

There is a big problem when it comes to homeowners looking for reliable tradespeople because it is very clear that when you have no connection to the construction industry, finding trades for smaller jobs becomes impossible and there are glaring holes in the set up of these sites.

When speaking to homeowners we have found that most of them only use tradespeople who have been recommended to them, that is why, as tradespeople ourselves we have decided it is time to create our own platform for homeowners, landlords, tenants and anyone else seeking help in their home to use without worrying about reliability.

Manus was thought up and has been developed by construction people. We know how sick customers get from Googling blindly or reading fake testimonials, only to have to wait for tradespeople to respond. We wanted to make finding vetted, trusted and reliable tradespeople an on-demand service where you can choose from a range of services being carried out by fully checked tradespeople.

Manus shows you qualified and vetted tradesmen, within 5 miles of you, who are available now. Once you’ve made a choice, you send details of your job to that tradesperson, along with photos if you wish. There’s no quote to worry about. All tradespeople on Manus charge the same, flat hourly rate.
