"The key to our service's success is that everything is entirely transparent – anyone can see the jobs on offer and the current bids."
Working along the lines laid down by other online auction sites, the chief difference, the company claims is that the customer can choose at any stage whether or not to accept a bid and proceed with a visit.
"The customer pays TenderWarehouse nothing and the contractor only pays us a nominal fee," said the company.
One element of the service is the proactive email alert service, which notifies registered contractors when new jobs are posted on the site.
The customer can be assured that their job is being advertised and the contractor can rest assured that he should not miss out on key new work coming to the market.
