3 services for which we hire a professional online rather than getting an agency
We all are debating whether contacting a professional agency or hiring a professional online is best. It might seem cheaper to get a worker through an agency or more trustworthy but you are wrong. That is the case specifically for when you:
- Hire a cleaner
- Find a massage therapist
- Get an electrician
Getting an agency VS hiring directly a professional online
There are many aspects to look after when making a decision on which way to go for services. However, it all depends on what you are trying to get. Quality vs quantity? Cheap vs Pricy? Efficient vs Slow service? So what are the advantages and disadvantages of hiring a professional online in London?
We have highlighted some factors to take into consideration when you:
1. Hire a cleaner
When deciding on whom to let inside of your premises (house or office) and give freedom to touch your property everyone needs to be cautious and take extra security measures. You need to be sure that the person you call for cleaning is reliable and trustworthy. For that reviews and recommendations come in handy! If you hire a cleaner online in London you can read all the reports and reviews of previous customers. Everything is crystal clear and very transparent. However, the opposite can be said about an agency.
The people an agency has in their directory are one-off workers that they try to assign to a customer fast and receive their commission. They do not care about the same worker getting another job in the future or the client to hire a cleaner through them again. They only rely on the commissions of one-off deals. The due diligence process is not strict and you basically do not have any guarantee that the person is trustworthy!
An online directory, like us here at Connecting Services, has ratings and reviews of multiple customers. Our workers rely on good feedback for them to have new customers in the future.

Additionally, have you ever considered what is the hourly or daily rate for hiring a cleaner directly vs getting a fixed fee per hour/per day/per month from an agency. It is usually much cheaper to get a cleaner online as it there is a big variety of cleaners available and you can find the cheapest alternative. Moreover, when the freelancers go directly to the end customer there are no agency fees in between.
2. Find a massage therapist
One of the most important factors to check is the price of the massage. We all know that companies that hire full time massage therapists or are established as spas in London have lots of costs. That means their prices will be much higher than the actual cost of the massage therapist per hour/ per day rate. For this reason going directly and hiring a massage therapist online in London or the UK in general is way cheaper and easier. The direct approach with the professional ensures you get the best price for the same good quality.

3. Get an electrician
We all have been in an urgent need of a plumber or electrician! That is very frustrating indeed!
When you call an agency in those cases most of the time they will put you on hold to only come back with another day! What can you do when the electricity is down and the circuit breaks constantly? Wait for another day or two? The solution is to get a direct approach with the best available electricians in London. The online approach regarding electricians and plumbers is very efficient and pays well when in need.
Those are only a few of the service categories we would strongly advise to avoid the agencies. There are so many countless reasons to avoid paying over your budget and getting the same identical service. Use your time and money wisely!
