Definitions



Users: private individuals, companies, tradespeople, storekeepers, architects, homeowner associations, local authorities or administrations who are seeking one or more Contractors to undertake services (building work, renovation, conversion, decoration, etc.).

Contractors: any professional who can respond to a quote request made by a User.



Service Description

The Adopt-a-Contractor.com website provides a client/Contractor networking service.

To be put in contact with one or more Contractors for free, the User must fill in the Quote Request Form for the service/s which he or she requires.

Following this, Contractors who are interested in a quote request get in direct contact with the client in order to prepare the price quote and then, where applicable, carry out the services required.

It is not possible to obtain an automatic price quote by e-mail through The Adopt-a-Contractor website. The quotes are prepared by professional tradespeople who are local to the place where the required service is to be carried out.

In most cases, it will be necessary for the User and the Contractor to make contact by telephone or arrange a visit so that the Contractor can prepare an accurate price quote.



Service Cost

The networking service provided by Adopt-a-Contractor.com is completely free for Users.

No commission is taken on the amount due for services undertaken by Contractors.

Contractors who wish to reply to quote requests are subject to a tariff calculated according to the number of quote requests to which the Contractor wishes to reply. For more information about conditions of service for Contractors, click here.
