How To Save Money When Hiring A Trades Person

Hiring a trades person doesn't mean exceptionally high pricing. In fact, when you know what to look for, which trades people to hire, and the type of work they can perform, it is going to be quite simple for you to find the best people for the trade, without paying too much for the work they are going to do. Before choosing a trades person for any task, from installing new lighting to doing mechanical work, consider some of these tips so you find the best possible rates when hiring the skilled service specialists for a job.

Material cost -
Sure, you are paying a specialist to do the work, this doesn't mean you have to rely on them to provide materials. In fact, buying your own materials is a simple way to keep costs way down. Not only that, you can decide on finishes, colours, design, textures, and so forth, when doing work around the home. So, buy your own materials, know what is required for the job, and reduce costs on this front when hiring specialists.

Get quotes -
It truly is the only way to save; and, it allows you to hire the most skilled trades people for the job. Due to the fact that there are hundreds of trades specialists you can hire, if you simply call one and hire them, you never know what other rates are out there. So, call around, compare quotes, find out what is covered, what is guaranteed, and go from there to hire the best people for the job. Most people are unsure on the price things will cost around the home for example how much does a loft conversion cost. If you would like to know a few prices estimates on jobs around the home then priceyourjob.co.uk is a good place to visit.

Know their reputation -
Yes, hiring the best trades people is a good way to save. How you might wonder? When they are skilled, reputable, have a great reputation, this also means they have a steady client base. So, they can pass the savings on down to you as a new customer. Make sure you know who you are hiring, do your research, and choose specialists based on reputation, not just how quickly they can perform the trade or craft you are hiring them to do for you.

You have options when you do choose to hire specialist trades people for different services. When the time comes to hire one of these specialists, you don't have to overpay, simply because they are specialised in a task. In fact, when you shop, compare, and find out who is out there, you can greatly save on the prices you are going to pay when time comes to hire a team for the job.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
