For those of you living in south Florida, spendLO is a new company with such a great premise! Instead of calling around to get the lowest price and having to explain what you want done a thousand times, you just post your project on the website and wait for the proposals to come to you!
The spendLO.com story:
The concept for spendLO.com was derived from a recent experience one of our local vendors encountered while attempting to upgrade office facilities. In the process of planning the move, the need for a local transport vendor to help transfer the office contents came up. After reaching out to several local companies, each with similar questions about the project yet each providing much different pricing, all of which were out of their budget, made them realize there had to be an easier way to shop for a transport vendor. Well, there was, and it became known as spendLO.
spendLO is an internet based platform that provides the opportunity for local consumers to post the need for local products or services and the price in which they are willing to pay. Businesses registered with spendLO receive notification when postings applicable to their business are submitted and have the opportunity to bid accordingly. The consumer selects from the bids received based on pricing and the businesses’ reputation. In the end the consumer determines the cost of service and promotes a stronger local economy by working with local businesses. How did we ever do it any other way?
I found the process super easy. I signed up for my FREE account and then posted the job I wanted done which was complete auto detailing. I put as much detail as possible into the listing, like that I wanted the car waxed, etc. I set a price that I thought was fair ($100) and within a few hours I already had some responses. I really liked how I could see more information about each company who put a bid in like how long they have been in business, how many employees they have and where they are located. Based on the responses I got I chose someone local to me who has been in the auto detailing business for years.
I ended the request for service vendor and selected Jerry as the winner! I was given his contact information and sent him an email. He responded very quickly and we worked out the where and when for the auto detailing. He came right to my job and got to work! He did a great job, my car has never been cleaner. Jerry was very professional and I loved that I got a super low price for the detailing of my car. The 5 minutes it took to post my project on spendLO was well worth it and I know I saved a lot of time from calling around to find the lowest price. I will not hesitate to use spendLO again for projects around my house!
I received compensation to use the service and post my review. All opinions are my own.
