THE NEW COMMUNITY

Founder and Tradesperson Garry Lewis:

“You have to be a tradesperson to understand the problems we encounter on a daily basis and only then will you have the credentials to help provide the solutions”

tradespeople need more help & support

Being a tradesperson and running a business is more than a full time job and in the majority of cases there are not enough hours in a day to get everything done. This later impacts our business, adding more pressure to everyday life, and as a result we don’t enjoy our work anymore.

These statistics clearly show that things have got to CHANGE!

UK faces growing skilled tradespeople crisis as tradespeople are choosing other professions.

SMEs face £40 billion a year in unpaid invoices. Prompt payment is an ethical issue.

The construction industry has the highest rate of suicides than any other profession.

The number of failures within the UK’s construction sector increased by 73% in 2018.

rogue customers & sub contractors

I believe rogue customers and sub contractors who don’t pay, or pay late, should be EXPOSED in order to warn other tradespeople. This will make it DIFFICULT for them to operate and make them accountable for their actions.

rogue traders

Whilst rogue traders are the minority, their actions do have a devastating impact on our industry and our livelihoods as they create a NEGATIVE environment that affects us all.

Rogue traders cost UK homeowners £1.9 billion a year in botched jobs.

Cowboy builders cost the UK economy around £10 billion a year in lost revenue.

The Problem

Everybody has to put their TRUST in one another from the outset but this TRUST is being abused by dishonest consumers, tradespeople, and sub contractors.

The solution

I’ve created a NEW environment where both consumers and tradespeople now have an EQUAL relationship and make a COMMITMENT to one another to help ensure a POSITIVE outcome for BOTH parties.

Rogue Traders and Rogue Customers will NOT want to use this platform.

GREAT NEWS!

NOT for profit, FREE for everybody to use, and ALWAYS will be.

making it DIFFICULT for Rogue Traders and Rogue Customers to operate.

NOW BOTH PARTIES…

  • ...are EQUAL
  • ...have a VOICE
  • ...make a COMMITMENT
  • ...seek RECOMMENDATIONS
  • ...agree to share their EXPERIENCES

We then SHARE those experiences.

Together we can and will make a difference.
