What is PinkHippo?
PinkHippo is an online marketplace where we find the right tradesmen for your job. Thereby saving you the hassle and money because we do all the work by delivering you multiple quotes within 24hrs.
How it works?
There are a couple of easy steps you need to follow. You make a request for a service like carpet cleaning, plumbing, electrician etc then you give us some key details about the job, when and where you need the job done and the best way to contact you with quotes i.e. email, text, or phone.
Then our sophisticated algorithms will find local businesses based on postcode that are qualified to do the job, we invite them to quote on it and you'll receive on average about 3 quotes back with ratings reviews and background checks as well as the prices and the exact appointment time, without picking up the phone.
Once you are happy with the quotes and after checking their reviews and other details, you pick your preferred tradesmen and book the job. Lastly, after the completion of the job you pay the tradesmen the agreed price quoted and give your own review of the tradesmen based on punctuality and experience.
How are we different from Google and other classified directories?
We thought as we look at the local online directory there were already a lot doing the same thing including Google, Yahoo merchant, yellow pages and other directories returning hundreds of listings. So if your goal is to go out there and browse the web for businesses you're pretty much taken care of. What we have done is actually solve the problem for people. Think of it as solving the paradox of choice problem. Because if you are browsing, you don't know if the service provider is going to be available or interested in your job or how much they going to charge you. At that point, you are doing the same amount of work by using your telephone to call your local businesses.
