Bidvine Review - my search for a professional cleaner

As a busy mum of four, I sometimes feel like there simply isn't enough time in the day to spend quality time with my children. Questions such as, "mum can you play with us?" are too often answered with "when I've finished cleaning the bathroom, kitchen, hoovering, ironing etc. etc ..."

Hiring a professional cleaner has been at the back of my mind for a while. I spent a short time in the past cleaning for my ill Father in law, so I know that just a couple of hours a week can help to get on top of large cleaning tasks. Also, although having a cleaner seems very extravagant, a couple of hours a week is actually doable with regards to cost and the amount of time saved.



 Bidvine - a fantastically useful concept!




As I am a natural procrastinator I hadn't given the idea of hiring a professional cleaner anymore thought, until I came across the site Bidvine, which is a fast and free service, enabling you to receive competitive quotes from professional service providers in your local area. Bidvine cover lots of services including music tuition, photography, handyman services, painter and decorators, personal training, yoga, professional cleaning, to name a few. It's a bit like having an interactive local advertising magazine at your finger tips!

How Does Bidvine Work?



On first entering the site you are asked the simple question "What service do you need?".

I typed in domestic cleaning and was then asked a series of questions specific to the cleaning service I required. I was asked if I wanted a standard clean, deep clean or moving out clean. I chose a standard clean. The next question asked if I would like any additional services, such as the fridge cleaning, an oven clean, interior window clean and laundry. Optionally I could let the cleaner know if I had any pets, or would prefer only eco products to be used. I went on to stipulate the times and days I would like the cleaner to work.



An account was then created, specifying where I lived and my email address to receive bids.

Bidvine then send your job request to trusted local professionals who can help with your service requirements. Bidvine work hard to perfect the match between jobs and local professionals.

Following setting up an account and answering the questions, you sit back and wait for local professionals to contact you via email.



I found the process to be extremely simple and user friendly. So much easier than trawling through phone numbers and waiting for people to turn up to give quotes.

It is comforting to know that Bidvine only deal with professionals and they have a review process whereby customers can read reviews and are also encouraged to leave reviews.

I was most impressed by the specific questions asked, as it eliminates people from contacting you that can't meet your individual requirements or work on particular days.  

I wouldn't hesitate to use Bidvine again to search for other local professionals in my local area. Hopefully I'll now have lots of free time to spend with my family!
