Products and operation

The MyHammer platform hosts services available in all home improvement categories such as carpentry, plumbing, gardening etc. etc.[2] The service is free for tradesmen and consumers. After winning a job, tradesmen are required to pay a small fee of 6% of their quote price.[3] Tradesmen can also set the “job radar” for receiving emails about jobs which are specific to their field and locality. Moreover, MyHammer customers can rate the tradesmen and leave feedback. They can also upload pictures so that service providers can see in advance what needs to be repaired, painted or fixed.[4]The right tradesman may be chosen based on price, qualification, customer feedback or availability and therefore, the cheapest is not necessarily the best.
