Electric Car Charge Point: Our 300,000th Job

Builderscrack started out in 2007, with the simple goal of connecting homeowners to tradies. Fast forward 12 years and we are excited to be celebrating such a significant milestone… Our 300,000th Job To have had the opportunity to help homeowners find tradies for 300,000 jobs is both exciting and a privilege. From all of us here at Builderscrack we want to say a big THANK YOU to our homeowners and tradespeople, without you we wouldn't be here. The Job Mark from Auckland, a busy doctor at Auckland's Middlemore Emergency department, posted our 300,00th job.

Busy homeowner Michelle holds down parenting, full-time work and studying towards her PhD. She shares with us how she used Builderscrack to outsource her housework so she could focus on the important stuff... How It Started To say Michelle is a driven person is an understatement. Sitting across from a woman that packs so much into her days is inspiring, not only because of that drive but the clever way she has arranged her life to make it possible. She tells me "I’m doing a full-time PhD and I’m doing full-time work, so for me, I have lots to do and absolutely no time. I also have a teenager who’s almost 16, who is extremely social. Every weekend there are at least five to seven friends invited, and they are having a sleepover. I come home, and I'm like, “I left it nice and tidy, what happened?”.  Michelle and her son moved into their home three years ago, and with a laugh explains “how things were starting to fall apart and in need of repair”. It wasn't only hard findi
