Never fear, Oneflare is here to help. Oneflare is a new internet service that creates an online marketplace where customers evaluate and hire the home service providers they’re looking for. With over 90,000 businesses across hundreds of service categories Australia-wide, there is sure to be a match for any job.
Requesting a service is easy and free. Customers submit one simple form outlining the basics of the job which is automatically matched to the best service providers in the area. Customers then receive up to five quotes from the multiple businesses competing for the work. These quotes give customers the confidence that they are paying the right price for the job. In fact, customers have saved up to 40% by comparing quotes on Oneflare.
Oneflare’s online marketplace is powered by the latest innovative internet and mobile technology. Customers on the go can use Oneflare’s ultra convenient mobile site which places thousands of service providers in the palms of their hands. And because time is money, Oneflare eliminates the need for customers to make calls by doing all the work for them and enabling the interaction with home service providers to take place via the website.
Most importantly, Oneflare takes trust and safety seriously so customers can be sure they are hiring high quality home service providers. Businesses are reviewed and rated by fellow Oneflare users just like they would receive a recommendation from a good friend or neighbour. The best businesses are backed by Oneflare’s Home Care Guarantee that covers customers’ jobs by up to $500 if something goes awry. Oneflare’s trust and safety measures deliver the ultimate peace of mind so that customers never have to worry about the character and quality of tradies coming into their homes.
So next time that DIY kitchen renno doesn’t go as planned, remember there is an online community waiting to help. One request. One stop. Oneflare.
Oneflare was started by three entrepreneurs from Sydney; Marcus Lim, 26, Tommy Lim, 26 and Adam Dong, 25. Marcus, Tommy and Adam (also known as ‘The Flares’) share a passion for online technology and a vision for simplifying the way Australian consumers hire local home service providers. Oneflare launched in January 2012 and since then has experienced impressive growth and gained many happy homemakers.
The Story Behind the Name
The inspiration for the Oneflare name came from the helplessness that consumers often feel when looking for home services professionals. Who to call, how much to pay and what questions to ask were all a mystery. Customers felt like they were trapped on a desert island, searching in the sand for help. Oneflare serves to be ‘the flare’ that each customer sends out to get the attention they need. When a flare goes up, the businesses come running. Invigorated by this vision, the Oneflare brand was born.
