My builder is far cheaper than rated people and works much better for the tradesman in my opinion. I've used it a lot and has worked really well for me

Phone gwn they've always got work
Thanks m8 i will do tomorrow. I’ve got good references and all the pre requisites just need to build up a good network. Just finished a Santander bank in Lytham last week for GF Holding through the agency and they want me back in sept for a job in London digs and expenses paid, obviously can’t wait around though so hopefully i can get sorted! What a guy!

Spot on! Not far from me at all. Just checked them out online and they look like a really reputable firm! Much appreciated

What sort of work are you up to at the moment? do you do a bit of everything?

I want to try o0ne of these sites too, but if you have zero ratings and therefore 0% positive rationg, no ones going to touch you. How can that be amended. Any tips?
