Ive definitely used them mate. And both of them were a waste of time for me. You can argue all you like.

There is a difference in saying it didn't work for you and saying it is s**t

I think it depends on what the slot machine throws at you. You may be in an area where not a lot of trades people use it so you'll have a bigger success rate, in London and home counties for these leads loads of people competing driving the price down, but for some still works out well like gps. I given up on rated and my builder, got fed up going in pricing against 20 other people

Just wanted to post a bit about my builder as I know some are not a fan...work started to slow down a bit so thought id sign up....i went for every lead in my area and the first weeks bill was £96. the business from these leads are two full house reskims, a 4m x 4m bedroom walls and ceiling....board and skim of a kitchen ceiling and the patch and skim of a single wall....to be honest after a bit of first hand experience I think people should sign up....i signed up nearly 6k of business in a week with no feedback.....if anyone is slow on business more than worth a try...you never know it might surprise you....i actually noticed a familiar face on there :)
These sites are for people who can't find work
They have ruined the trade

I always thought my builder was for the bottom feeders to squabble over the scraps no one else wants, but sounds like some people are getting some decent work from it on a regular basis.

There's sum truth in wat bobbys saying tbf..i don't think you should have to buy a lead etc and its not rite in people stating how much there want to pay for a job wen there havnt got a clue on wat the job entails etc..but then if ur making a tidy profit on it then that's the main plus..but there are for people who struggle to find work

Not a problem mate....@bobby as always had a hard on for me, so not a dig at anyone else....so far no one has told me what I should charge, the site just base the lead price on the value they think but I price the job on my opinion
