Onlinetradesmen has launched a video site survey platform, that will facilitate the pricing of home improvement jobs during the pandemic.

The platform reduces the need for trade professionals to physically visit a home owner's property to quote on a job, negating Covid-19 health risks, while adding more convenience and reassurance for both parties. 
Home owners can opt for a free video-based site survey at a time that suits them. Trade professionals can then arrange video survey appointments with home owners without the need to travel and incur unnecessary pre-sales costs. Onlinetradesmen said the new platform ensures maximum productivity while providing home owners with accurate quotes for home improvement projects.

According to the platform, there was a 54% increase in customers seeking home improvement quotes when restrictions first began to ease, and the most common jobs being arranged include bathroom refurbishment and landscaping projects. 

"Our remote site survey platform was born out of necessity from the Covid-19 pandemic," said Ted Laverty, Founder and CEO of Onlinetradesmen. "We have used technology to adapt our service and keep both our home owner users and trade members safer."
