Finding a good builder or plumber can be tricky and time-consuming - but now Which? has launched a site where members can get local recommendations from each other.

Which? Local can help you steer clear of cowboys by putting you in touch with the best businesses in your area. It features members' recommendations of traders and services that they've used.

We've expanded the site in the last year and it now covers all of the UK, with more than 7,500 recommendations covering more than 200 trades and professions, from hairdressers to plumbers. For example, the 'House and home' section contains everything from electricians to locksmiths.

Members rate companies out of five for overall service and value for money, and say why they'd recommend the trader.

If you can't find a recommended service in your area, you can ask other members who live there for suggestions.
