Forget searching through the Yellow Pages for a qualified installation expert. Whether you need a plumber, a cable installer, a gardener, or a science tutor, Redbeacon is an application that will find a qualified professional in your local area who can handle the job at any time you want. Redbeacon lets users get price quotes and make appointments with qualified professionals in the service industry who can meet their needs—all without ever having to pick up the phone and dial for help.
If you’re using Redbeacon to search for skilled professionals in your area, then just sign up and type in a few words describing the type of professional you need. Include details about desired appointment times, your zip code or address, and a sentence or two about what exactly you need help doing—whether that is getting in shape, installing a light fixture, or learning to play the piano. The more details you include, the more likely it is that you’ll get an accurate quote, and you can even include images to better illustrate the work you need done. When you click submit, Redbeacon will send your job request out to all of its providers in the nearby area.
Within a matter of hours, you’ll receive an email from Redbeacon telling you to return to the site to see all the bids that have been put in by local service people. Check out the price quotes, and click to see more details about any specific provider—including his Redbeacon profile, rating, and additional details about what he predicts the total cost of the job will be. When you accept a quote, the appointment will be automatically scheduled without any phone calls needed and you can pay the service provider once the job is done to your satisfaction. Redbeacon is an interesting application that makes it easier to save money when hiring professionals to handle all types of jobs.
