Posted on March 5, 2009. Filed under: 1, Hiring Home Repair General Contractors | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Paints can work wonders on the aura of a house. A house painted by an expert painter has a different look and feel about it. The painting job done by an inexperienced person, on the other hand, could mess up the entire appearance of an expensively decorated house. However, the search for a professional is a very time-consuming task and may require extensive effort.

But not anymore…You can drastically reduce the time and effort spent in searching for the requisite professional through the help of the MiNeeds site. With MiNeeds, all you have to do is post your requirements and the rest of the dirty work of contacting the professionals and eliciting competitive quotes is done by MiNeeds. Take the successful example of the customer in Tacoma, Washington, who wanted to get his 2-storey, 3,200 sq ft, house painted. Instead of using the traditional search method, he posted his requirement and the associated details on MiNeeds, which automatically contacted all local professionals and prompted them to bid for the project. Within a few days, he had received responses from 8 professional painters, some of whom even gave him a special offer. He could also view the reviews of these professionals given by their previous customers, making his selection process simpler.

You can also save yourself the hassle of searching for a professional the next time you want to get your house painted. You can either scan through the list of Seattle Home Repairs or post your needs and wait for the professionals to contact you!!

Massage Your Stress and Pain Away Without Stretching Your Budget

Posted on January 27, 2009. Filed under: 1, Hiring Massage Therapists | Tags: , , , , , , , |

One of the best ways of freeing your body of the effects of day-to-day stress and tensions is a body massage. There are several types of massages and body rub techniques available, each having a different impact on the body. So, you need a massage therapist who is both versatile and knows the kind of massage your body requires. The message therapist also needs to be highly experienced and talented, since a novice or ineffective therapist can do more harm than goof to your body. Thus, selecting a massage therapist is almost like searching for an appropriate doctor, someone with whom you are comfortable and whom you can trust your body with. The selection of a massage therapist, therefore, requires extensive search and sifting through references, taking an immense toll on your precious time, effort and money.

The search for a good massage therapist can, however, be simplified with the help of MiNeeds. Through the MiNeeds site, all you have to do is post your requirement and wait for the professionals to contact you with their competitive bids. The net impact – you save on time, effort and most importantly your hard-earned money, as professionals compete with each other to win your business. This is the approach that the customer in Renton, Washington, followed when he needed the services of a massage therapist on the regular basis. He simply posted his requirement, his budget and the related details on MiNeeds, which automatically alerted the local professionals of the need. The customer received four competitive bids from the professionals in his area. The best part of the entire system was that he could delve into the details of the professionals and decline bids from those who did not meet his criteria without feeling guilty.

You could also save yourself time and the cost of searching for a professional massage therapist the next time you need to massage your pains and aches away. You can browse through the list of Seattle Massage Therapists and select the one who fits your criteria. Alternatively, you can just post your needs and relax while professionals submit their bids to you!!
