How do I register and is it free to register?

October 25th, 2013

Registering is completely free and easy. Tradesmen can register here.

You need to provide a valid e-mail address. We use this to send you details of new jobs posted on the site and inform you of any major website changes.

You also need to provide a current address and phone number, so we can contact you if there are any issues with setting up your account. We will verify your address before you are able to start chasing jobs.

Choose a username and a password.  Your username is the name that homeowners first see when you indicate interest in their job. Read the terms and conditions, tick the box to indicate that you have done so, then click ‘signup’.  An e-mail will be sent to you to verify your e-mail address is valid. If you don’t receive the e-mail promptly, check your junk/spam/trash folders. If you can’t find it, contact us and we will be more than happy to re-send it.

When you have clicked on the verification message in your inbox you will be taken to a page where you can say how you found out about Builderscrack. Now it’s time to set up your Trade profile. This is important because this is the information that homeowners will see. You want to appear professional, so take some time over this page to think about how you can best represent yourself. Homeowners regularly tell us about how important trade profiles are in deciding which tradesman to choose.

The next step is to set up your job e-mail alerts. This filter controls what types of job will be emailed to you. Are you interested only in plumbing jobs or do you want emails about several different types of jobs? Likewise, do you want to see jobs only for a certain location, or are there several adjacent districts in which you work? Use the drop-down and tick boxes to set your preferences. You can change these at any time by going to trades & districts once logged in.
