READ THIS PLEASE Tradies are not quoting some jobs because we have to pay as much as $38 in some cases just to quote a job even if we do not win the job. This is ontop of the $200 monthly fee. I know some of you dont care for this as long as you get the best price. Just remember if you want the best deal and the quickest quote return, put in as much information as possible about your job so it will be irresistible not to quote. Photos also help out alot. Otherwise try SERVICE SEEKING garenteed its alot better.
Unprofessional tradies Hired jaykay heating systems to replace ducts, did partial work and made me pay money. Scheduled several appointments after my several requests but never came in to finish job. Never pay him before completion, also don't expect hipages to solve any issues, they don't even display any negative feedback of tradies in their app
The whole idea is wrong The app charges 3 first people to accept a job no matter who gets the job, if anyone actually gets it. Half of the jobs didn't even request quotes making me think that those jobs generated by fake customers. I ve been with the app for 2 months with 5 or 6 job requests accepted and 0 ZERO jobs started. Leads ridiculously overpriced!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE READ Disgusting customer service and poor business model. decided to try hipages after their aggressive advertising campaign. Worse decision ever. Company needs to be investigated by Fair Trading. Tradesman have to pay before we can quote cheapest lead is $11 and the most expensive up to $40. Limited info is provided and can't discuss with customer without paying hipages 1st. hung up on me when I cancelled membership. Took 2 weeks 2 cancel and refund. They make a fortune off tradesman and the jobs aren't legit!
Useless Wanted a quote for new fence. They sent the request to 38 Fenchers and "all" are not interested. Are you kidding. I made two seperate calls and both guys quoted and It's now getting done. Clearly a poor pricing model for tradies.
One of the hinges on the front door was ineffective (screws not holding to door frame). I have arthritis in my hands and to close or open the door required a lot of strength (i.e. very painful). I accepted the 1st quote and he fixed on the spot. Very happy!
