McKinney, TX (PRWEB) September 22, 2011
Bids Compare (http://www.bidscompare.com) today announced the launch of its unique and easy to use online price comparison service. With this service home owners can now compare prices on any bid they get (e.g. Tile, Flooring, Fencing, Electrical, HVAC, Countertops, etc) against others in their neighborhood. There is no cost to use the service and no identifying information is required, you simply get one bid and compare it.
“Bids Compare is a service built from the ground up to give homeowners a place to quickly, easily and accurately compare bids by exact measurements, not rough estimates.” said co-founder and CEO Josh Richmond. “This means delivering an “apples to apples” comparison, setting our service apart from so many others” he continued.
Given today’s tough economic environment and soft job market, homeowners have been searching for a way to save costs. “We understand the last thing you want to do is pay for a new AC unit if yours breaks, but when it’s August in Texas, you really have no choice!” said Mr. Richmond “but if you do have to replace your old one, wouldn’t you want to make sure you’re paying a fair price?”
Essential to using the site is having at least one bid first. “The main reason for doing this is to make sure you know exactly what’s involved” said Mr. Richmond. “Most homeowners have no idea how to measure the square footage of a countertop or understand what a 13 SEER, 3.5 ton compressor is, but once they have those specifics from a professional service provider, they have everything they need to start saving.”
Bids Compare, a startup from McKinney, TX has spent the last 18 months developing a vast online database of thousands of different home repair and improvement variables and then sorting them into hundreds of different categories. With this, the team now believes it is the only site of its kind in the world.
“We’re in an internet centric, always online economy, and with sites dedicated to comparing prices on everything from TVs to Airline tickets to Sneakers, it was a shock this hadn’t been done before” added Mr. Richmond.
“With today’s announcement, Bids Compare is now officially launched, but the work continues on as we look to refine and improve and to get the word out” said Mr. Richmond” The sites value is in having bids to compare, and that’s where we need your help in getting the word out”
