At Frunbu we don't run checks or conduct interviews, we're all about putting you in touch with someone who might be interested in doing your job - so please take your own reasonable steps to assure yourself of the suitability of any persons that you might engage with via Frunbu.

What is Frunbu?

Frunbu connects local tradespeople who have 'unplanned downtime' with local customers who have smaller trade jobs that 'just need doing'.

These jobs will mostly be non-urgent, lower in monetary value, and often not worth the hassle of trying to persuade an already busy tradesperson to come around to quote, let alone do the job.

We're quite certain that most people reading this will have experienced a no-show from a tradesperson on more than one occasion - it's just the way it is!

An already busy tradesperson won't be all that interested in a small non-urgent job, a tradesperson with nothing to do this afternoon or tomorrow will be much more interested.

A willingness or a need to find alternative work at short notice is what makes us different, it's our niche...we're a short notice solution to a short notice problem.

Why is Frunbu different?

Frunbu is all about keeping local tradespeople busy on the days when they are unexpectedly not busy, the key word here is 'unexpected' - we're the short notice solution to those 'unexpected' short notice problems.

If a tradesperson unexpectedly has no work today or tomorrow, paying to be listed on a directory such as trustatrader.com or checkatrade.co.uk is not going to help them to quickly pick up some alternative paid work.

Similarly, paying for a pre-qualified sales lead from the likes of Ratedpeople.com or MyBuilder.com is not going to help either because by the time the customer makes their decision as to which tradesperson to go with...they're already back to being busy again.

So how does Frunbu work?

Simple - if you need any odd jobs doing, just sign-up (it generally takes less than a minute), post your job, and then sit back and wait to be contacted by local tradespeople interested in doing the job for you.

Please be advised that you are likely to be contacted by more than one person about your job, so please take your own reasonable steps to assure yourself that they are the best person for the job.

Please remember that we don't do any checks ourselves, please use your own common sense, if you feel at all uneasy – please just walk away.

Why don't we run checks?

We don't run checks because we feel they are unnecessary.

u don't like the look of someone it's always best to say - thanks, but no thanks.

Why no customer feedback?

There's no customer feedback because it's potentially too easy to abuse, it would also require third-party moderation - and because we purposely have no staff we've taken the decision to keep it very simple.

  1. Post your job
  2. Sit back and wait to be contacted
  3. Decide for yourself who to go with - simple
