What is RateLocal?
Established in 2014, RateLocal is a free service that helps consumers find reputable businesses in their local area. The RateLocal directory lists businesses from a variety of trades, for example builders, carpenters, plasterers, roofers; as well as other services such as accountants, hairdressers, solicitors and web designers.
We are extremely diligent about the services we promote on the directory and every business that is submitted to RateLocal is checked carefully by our staff before being listed.
Verified customer reviews and detailed company listings helps to keep RateLocal a safe and reliable place to find and promote local business services or products they offer. All businesses are listed in rating order, so it’s easy to see which companies are recommended by our users.
RateLocal works seamlessly on all modern browsers, tablets and mobile devices.
