There are lots of incidences at our home, office or any place where we either live or work, when we find ourselves caught in the situation where we do not know or understand or find the way to come out from that casualty at the earliest. Let us for instance say that after having hectic working schedule throughout the day when you come back to your home your find no light inside due to electric fuse. This although is not a very big issue and even a layman can get it rectified with little knowledge of electric work, but as this is not possible with most of us, we start finding a tradesman who can help us to come out from the problem.
However, this is also possible that you must also be having the details of some electricians in your phone book, from whom you had got the electricity work done at your home earlier. But, as it had been long years back it is quite possible that telephone number of the electrician would have changed or even he would have retire from his position and someone else from his family might be looking after his business. In simple words you may not be able to locate the same person who offered his duties at your place long back
So, how to locate a tradesman for any reason seems to be a daunting task, especially at the time of an urgent requirement. However, if you had faced the same problem two decades back, then you had yellow pages to find a tradesman of your choice depending upon your requirement, but today with advent of internet use of yellow pages has become an outdated activity. Interestingly now days there are various online portals from where you can access the list of different tradesman registered in their list. An interesting feature of these online tradesman providers is that here you can find huge list of different service providers varying from plumber to electrician to building contractor to lawyer to air conditioner repairer to interior designer, carpenter, locksmiths and others depending upon your requirement.
