Home Improvement Contractors or Service Providers
Find out how U-bidit.com can help grow your business.
The best way for us to do this is to hold an auction in which both interests are represented. That way, home owners are reaching service professionals who are receptive to their projects and service providers are seeing something they're interested in. This is different than a traditional auction because the winner isn't the ad with the highest monetary bid, Quite the opposite. Service professional can either choose to accept your initial offering price, sometimes counter higher or even less to further gain an advantage over the competition in obtaining your project. As conscious consumers, we are always leery when something is said to be too good to be true when it comes to price points, below is an example of how a service professional can meet or beat your initial offered project price point.
Often, a contractor may have some extra material from a previous job, or there are cases when a customer special orders something such as granite counter tops and backs out do to unknow reasons, the contractor is usually then left stuck with the material. When these situations present themselves from time to time, a contractor may be able to match your anticipated price point with such materials through our site. Other variables on how a service pro can meet or beat your offered price can factor in, such as drive times, job location distance to current job location (i.e., travel times to setup jobs, such as equipment transferring from sites) or simply strong suite & forte of said service professional.
A reverse auction/negotiation takes place whenever an approved service provider in your state is eligible to see your job posting. The "project posting board" in an auction are jobs specific to a service provider’s specialty. These auctions take place every day around the clock, this enables you to receive the best price points from the best service providers in your state. Through our rigorous vetting process only verified licensed/registered reputable service providers in your state will gain access to our service member profile and can bid on projects. Home Owners will receive automatic email alerts whenever they receive a new offer and or instant messenger from possible service providers. Through our unique platform, Home owners and service providers are encouraged to utilize our integrated instant messenger feature to gain further clarity on price points and scope of the project. This allows for further project clarity and a more informed decision from both parties before a job/price point is agreed upon to minimize confusion or miscommunications moving forward in their juncture. Once that connection is made, the customers and professionals handle all their business arrangements outside of our platform and don’t have to use U-bidit.com again to maintain the relationship. The best part of it all is it’s completely free for home owners to use, they can use our site as often or as little as they would like, there are no fees or membership obligations!
