Bidvine service search review*
I’m so busy nowadays with work, blogging and my very hectic social life that I need everything to be quick and easy and that applies to everything from ordering dinner to hiring a painter and decorator. Bidvine is like the Tinder of the service industry (and YES I was on Tinder for about a week before I met my lovely boyfriend) searching to connect you with local service providers – it’s no-nonsense, no fuss and you can choose from a number of service providers.
Bidvine is a London-based startup website where you can search for local professionals to achieve whatever service you need (think People Per Hour but about a million times easier to use). From wedding photographers to a man with a van and even piano lessons, pretty much anything you can think of is listed on here – there are over 600 services to choose from across England and it’s being rolled out to more locations as we speak. As a blogger, it’s often a pain to get my fashion photographs taken (ok, so I HATE asking family and friends or my boyf to do it, as I’m not a model and feel so shy!) so I used Bidvine to search for a photographer.
It’s so simple to use – just visit the website, enter your location and the services you need and click on “Get Started”. You’ll then be asked a series of questions which will help tailor your quotes to your exact specifications. My questions included things like budget and where you’d like the photographs to be taken. Then you just need to sit back and watch the quotes coming in. You can choose to receive them via text message or email and I’m not exaggerating when I say that I received my first quote within seconds. Then within a few hours I had more!
The website is really user-friendly and intuitive so I think even the less web-savvy amongst us would find it really easy to use. It’s literally a search bar and then some questions to answer – you really can’t go wrong! Plus it’s fully mobile optimised which is great for when you’re on the go or between appointments.
I live in a remote(ish) area (well – outside of London anyway!) and I received three quotes which I thought was great. You simply choose the one you like best and then you’re done – super quick, absolutely no hassle. I’d recommend this service to anyone who finds it difficult to squeeze anything else into their hectic schedules.
In fact – I’m off to search for a cleaner for my flat right now!
