BidIgniter helps consumers compare prices and book appointments for local automotive services. BidIgniter does much more than off ratings & reviews: We actually returns price quotes for your job from qualified local businesses and professionals. We also allow you to schedule your appointment at the touch of a button with the service provider you like best. You'll save money because service providers compete for your business and save time because you can book your appointment without ever picking up a phone!
How is Bidigniter different from a Google search?
With Google, you search for a business name or category and get back local listings. You still need to follow up with each service provider to check price and availability. With BidIgniter, you get back price quotes, appointment times, and full provider profiles. When you see one you like, you simply click a button to accept the quote and book an appointment.
How is Bidigniter different than Yelp, CitySearch, and AngiesList?
These sites return community ratings and reviews for local businesses. When possible, we will show you any ratings that service providers have earned on these sites. However, we go beyond ratings by allowing you to also see the exact price a service provider will charge for your job. Then we let you book your appointment with the provider you like best!
How is Bidigniter different than Craigslist
Craigslist is a community forum where consumers and service providers can post messages and hope to be found by the other party. BidIgniter is a matching engine with price quoting and appointment scheduling features. We proactively notify the best providers about a job, so you're likely to end up with better quality service providers and you'll get the information you need to decide who to go with. Best of all, there are no absolutely no spammers on BidIgniter!
No, you cannot search for specific service providers. Instead, you request a service and qualified service providers who are interested in your job will submit a price quote to do the work. We only show you profiles of service providers who quoted on your job so you don't waste time scrolling through pages irrelevant search results
