Living alone I do like to try to do things myself. I’ve painted my walls and doors, and I’ve even worked out how to stop my shower dripping via YouTube. But there are things I know I will want to do eventually but don’t know how to do myself. Like plumbing. And electrics. I also don’t know where to start looking for these services if I’m honest.
Although I’m not in urgent need of any services, I’ve been having a play around on Bidvine to get an idea of what is available. It’s an easy service to use, you just input the details of what you are looking for, and add your postcode. You then answer questions to narrow down the search results.
For example, say you need a plumber for blocked drains. Not glamorous. And not something I know how to repair myself. You just answer questions to explain the exact nature of the issue and how long it has been happening for. You can also specify when you’re available, which hopefully means no taking time off work or waiting around between 8am and 1pm for someone to turn up.
It’s good to use a service like Bidvine because you can go through the steps of finding exactly what you need, and someone who is local. I also worry about not getting a good quality service, or paying over the odds. By finding someone through a platform like this I feel there’s that extra layer of security that its a decent service. And because you get quotes for the service you know you’re getting a competitive price.
But as well as practical stuff it’s fun to have a play around with what’s available. Like, do I want piano lessons? Or maybe a nutritionist? Or what about etiquette lessons? Do I need etiquette lessons? Mobile petting zoo? I know I need a mobile petting zoo.
I think it would be quite good fun to book some of the services as presents, or even something to do for a special occasion. I really like the idea of doing a group cookery class.
