Electricians rate UK's friendliest tradespeople

Published: 3 January 2020 - John King
 

My Job Quote surveyed 1,482 British people to discover who they believe to be the friendliest tradespeople. My Job Quote found that the majority of those surveyed rate electricians (75%) as the friendliest tradespeople.

Subsequently, 71% think gardeners/garden designers are friendly. Whilst 68% feel the same about plumbers. Contrastingly, it seems tilers are damningly the least friendly tradespeople – with only 23% categorising them as friendly. Just above, 29% consider kitchen specialists to be friendly.

Additionally, those surveyed were asked to identify the actions taken by tradespeople they appreciate the most.   

From this, My Job Quote found that Brits are most grateful when tradespeople do not get annoyed when they kindly ask them for an update/progress check (84%).

Thereafter, 79% appreciate tradespeople who provide them with a valid reason and apology for not turning up at all when arranged/agreed. Slightly below, 72% really value tradespeople taking the initiative to clean up any mess they have created once finished.
