We’ve nailed the chore of finding the best tradie for your job

How Builderscrack works

You’ve got a job that needs doing around your home.

You need to find the right tradie, one you can trust to do what they say they will. A tradie that comes with rave reviews. And who really wants to do your job! All for the right price.

Finding that perfect tradie has traditionally meant trawling through directories and websites; ringing around to leave messages, just hoping someone gets back to you. In other words, frustrating and time consuming.

Builderscrack has a better approach. Kiwi owned and run - Builderscrack is a New Zealand wide web service that connects you with top quality tradies who want to do your job.

And with our awesome Christchurch based customer support team, we're here to help every step of the way.

So no matter what you need done - from repairs to renovations; finding the best tradesperson for your job is easy with Builderscrack.

Posting a job takes only a couple of minutes.

Post job

Posting a job only takes a few minutes.

  1. Choose the type of work you need done. If you're having trouble choosing, you can opt for us to set the work type for you.
  2. Describe your job in as much detail as possible. There's no wrong way, just put down what you know, and what you need done.
  3. Let us know a few more details like your location and approximate budget.
  4. Add photos of the job if you can. This is a great way for tradies to see what they're going to be working with.
Review tradies

Review tradies

After posting your job, we immediately begin choosing the best tradies for your job. We send them a notification that includes details of your job.

These tradespeople have the opportunity to "Chase" your job. We aim to find 3-4 chasers for every job.

You'll receive a notification when your job is chased.

You can review each and every tradie in your account area. We give you lots of important information to help you learn more about your "chasers".

Check out how they've performed on similar jobs as yours. Learn what their communication, value for money and work quality is like based on authentic reviews from people like you.

Grant contact

Grant contact

After you've reviewed your chasers, you'll begin to have an idea of who you're open to discussing your job with.

Until you "Grant Contact", tradies can only let you know they're interested in your job, but can't follow up. You're in control.

When you're ready, you can "Grant Contact" with up to three tradies, and begin discussing your job details.

You can "Drop" a tradie from your job if you're not happy with them.

Arrange site visit

Arrange site visit

This is where Builderscrack works in with you and your chosen tradies. We're really flexible.

Most jobs that will take longer than a few hours need a site visit - for the tradie to get a good idea of the work involved, before offering a written quote.

For smaller jobs, a site visit may not be needed. The tradie might be happy to give you a price estimate for the work based on an hourly rate.

Either way, Builderscrack helps you arrange site visits, and keeps a record of them if you need.

Get quotes

Get quotes

One of the fundamentals of getting work done is, how much will it cost?

We take this a step further, and create a record of what's discussed and agreed, every step of the way.

Our quoting feature allows tradies you're in contact with to submit a written quote online. This is ideal for any jobs where a site visit has been made, and there is a clear understanding of the work to be done. Quotes can be updated as the job unfolds and you agree on changes.

For jobs where the tradie is going to turn up and do the job on the day, our messaging service records a quoted hourly rate, and job cost estimate. This is a less formal way to still make a record of what's agreed.

Write review

Write review

After the tradie of your choice has completed your job, you are able to share your experience with your tradie with other builderscrack users.

It's these genuine reviews that make Builderscrack such a powerful service for choosing the right tradie for your job. The only reviews we publish are those from real clients of that tradie.

By sharing your experience you help both your tradie find the right work in the future, and other homeowners like you find the right tradie for their job.
