Only top notch tradies

We are proud of our expert, top notch tradies here at hipages. We have a thorough screening process to ensure each tradie meets our high standards before they join our platform.


How do we screen our tradies?

  • We speak with all tradies before they join.
  • Tradies make a pledge to act with the utmost professionalism.
  • Daily ABN checks against the Australian Business Register.
  • Weekly insolvency checks through CreditorWatch. This looks for any external administration, registered defaults, court actions or insolvency, deregistration, strike offs, or winding up documents that have been lodged.
  • Monitoring of formal publications and social media for any findings related to our tradies.
  • Mediation process by our Trust & Quality team for any negative feedback.

If we find that a business has acted inappropriately, we would remove them from our platform and our systems would prevent them signing up again.

* Where a trade licence is mandatory or has been supplied for the purpose of completing jobs in the tradie's nominated state or territory.

I promise to only accept work that I am licensed and or qualified to carry out and to make contact with customers in a prompt and professional way, and to carry out all services with due skill and care.

hipages created licensedtrades.com.au, Australia's only comprehensive licence checking site. We track 1,500,000 licences across 47 licensing bodies to ensure our tradies have the right licence for their profession.

Recommendations

We encourage all our customers to give feedback to their tradie - not only does it help tradies improve their service, it helps other customers choose the best tradie for their job! Our feedback system ensures that tradies are rewarded for good work and held accountable for any problems.


Verified Recommendations

All recommendations are verified by hipages staff. Our Trust & Quality Team review all feedback and the customer is called when clarification is needed. Recommendations are checked to ensure they're genuine, after which they are published and marked as "Verified". If we see any negative feedback we work with both the tradie and customer to resolve any hiccups.

Hired Recommendations

Recommendations with the Hired icon are from jobs which were facilitated through the hipages platform and job has been confirmed as hired. Customers can leave feedback for a tradie even if they did not end up hiring them for the job as they may want to give feedback that the tradie gave great service when providing a quote.

External Recommendations

New tradies are asked if they'd like to provide two references from customers they've worked with prior to hipages. We call to verify the references before publishing. Once confirmed, they are marked as "External recommendation". These do not count towards rating.

Star ratings


Customers are invited to complete our feedback questionnaire for each job, and can choose whether this feedback is shared with the tradie. The star rating is based on the percentage of positive feedback for a tradie. It's only based on feedback where the tradie has been confirmed as "hired" to do the job so you can be confident it's genuine feedback from customers of this business.

Customer support

We have a dedicated customer support team here in Sydney to ensure your home improvement job runs smoothly. We can also help mediate if you have have any issues. If you need help choosing a tradie or have any questions, just ask - we are here to help.
