Who are we?
A little bit about us.....
At Service.com.au, we have created an easy to use and efficient platform to connect tradies with new customers. We are one of Australia's fastest growing and most comprehensive trades and services websites and online directories. We believe it is an excellent tool for new or established businesses to build their customer base and for customers who are looking for trusted tradies.
After speaking with countless tradies, we found a number of gaps in the advertising industry. Tradies were being charged an arm and a leg for ineffective advertising, being forced to settle on lower prices for their services or paying to receive access to customers without being guaranteed any work. This was becoming a headache for tradies across Australia. We understand tradies can be masters in their field, but dont have the knowledge or time to effectively represent themselves online.
After isolating these issues, the idea of Service.com.au was presented at the Bond University Accelerator Program for business start-ups. It went on to win this competition earning funding and help in developing the business.
Service.com.au was created in 2011 and has been rapidly expanding each year. We are Australia-wide and have over 50,000 businesses on the site connecting them to thousands of customers each week. Tradies pay a small subscription fee and receive a Premium Profile page never paying per lead or losing a commission off the work found on our site.
It is absolutely free for customers to use and find the right local tradie for their needs. Service.com.au is first and foremost a trades and services directory where customers can easily search the type of work they are looking for and the location they need, pulling up many qualified service providers. We also provide a free quoting service for customers looking to spend more time comparing service providers and prices. Customers simply tell us what they are looking for, write a brief job description and we do the rest finding the top tradies for the job.
