While there’s no hard and fast rule to choosing the right expert, there are three elements of a business’ profile to help you find someone reliable:
- Verified Badge: Businesses with the Verified Badge have shared their logo, description, ABN and a relevant license or certificate of insurance. All ABN and insurance documents are reviewed before a business can qualify for the Verified Badge.
- Reviews: Genuine customer reviews and ratings will give you an indication of the service and nature of the business.
- Photos of past work: Look out for portfolio photos on a business’ profile, otherwise ask the business to send you some examples of past work to hire with confidence.
At Oneflare, we have a lot of multi-talented businesses who are willing to travel far and wide for their customers. So, if you receive a quote from a business that is little far from your location or isn't specifically in the category of service you requested - there is always good reason behind this.
Keep in mind, businesses pay to quote on your job - they've received the details of your request and have determined that they're suitable to complete the work. So you wouldn't have received that quote if they couldn't help you with your job!
When you’re ready, hop back into your account, open up your job request and click "Hired" for the business you've chosen. By noting which business you select, you can share feedback and give credit where it's due - you'll also be notifying the other businesses that they were unsuccessful.
