Trade pricing

Builderscrack is risk free – we only invoice when you secure work.

We only charge a "success fee" when you've priced and secured the work. You can get out there and pitch for work with no money down. This sets Builderscrack apart. It's zero risk! Once you've secured the work and provided the price, only then will we apply the success fee.

A typical job through the Builderscrack process

This simple timeline follows a typical job as it goes through our process, and the points where our fees are applied. We have built in a lot of flexibility to ensure our process works well for all jobs, big and small across the 374 trades we cater to.

Job posted

The homeowner posts the job on Builderscrack.

Tradesperson chases

The tradesperson pitches for the job if it suits.

Contact granted

The homeowner grants contact with up to 3 tradespeople (job holding begins – first month free).

Tradesperson quotes

The tradesperson visits the site, quotes, or simply says they'll do it.

Job secured

The homeowner awards, or the tradesperson claims the job (as soon as job price is known and provided, success fee is applied) .

Job done!

The job is undertaken and feedback is given.

Where the tradesperson can demonstrate that payment was not received from the homeowner due to no fault on their part – or the job simply didn't proceed, Builderscrack will credit your account with any success fee already paid for that job.

  1. All prices are in New Zealand dollars and are exclusive of GST.
  2. The job cost is the total cost of the invoice issued to the homeowner.
  3. For recurring jobs, unless specified, the job cost is calculated over 9 weeks.
  4. Please build our fee into your labour and materials costs, as opposed to a separate line item on your invoice (which is against our T&C's). Full details here.
