Bids Compare – Compare Home Repair And Improvement Bids By Zip Code

5 Awards + 3 Bonus. $5 Each. No Awards Remaining.

bidsCompare - Startup Featured on StartUpLift

Bids Compare shows what others are paying for similar home repair and improvement services using its “apples to apples” comparison engine.

Target Audience: Homeowners who want to quickly compare a residential service (home improvement or home repair) bid.
Website URL: http://www.bidscompare.com/


Feedback sought:

  • Is it easy to understand what we do and why? If not, what do you suggest?
  • Typical homeowner calls 3 service provider and then selects the least expensive one – does the Bids Compare value proposition (call one and compare to all others) make sense? Do we need to explain the advantage of doing this more on our web site?
  • Would more social networking features help?
  • Would rewarding home owners who save the most money using bids compare be a good incentive? For example: Homeowner saves $100 using the bids compare service, and we gave them 5% of the cost savings (i.e. save $100 get $5 back) be a good incentive?
  • Would it help to make Yelp reviews available so you could see the reputation of the service provider?

About Bids Compare:

Up until now no local price comparison service has existed for home repair or improvement projects. While many sites exist that let homeowners share reputation information (Angieslist, Yelp, etc), none allow exact, “apples to apples” bid comparisons. Bids Compare does this by giving homeowners an easy to use, standardized drop down menu in which to upload your bid and then compare against others.

We sort by zip codes, giving you insight into the price paid on similar projects in your neighborhood. Fast, Free and no personally identifying information is ever needed. Just submit your bid and Save!

5 Awards + 3 Bonus. $5 Each. No Awards Remaining.
