PinBud was created by a group of entrepreneurs frustrated by the annoying process of finding and negotiating with trades people and professionals in various service industries. We identified the necessity for a one-stop web application offering search, research, and quick contact of multiple local businesses using a single service request form; all within a few clicks from the home page.
Our goal is to serve and meet the needs of our customers: individual users seeking services and service providers with free or paid business profiles on the PinBud network. We strive to improve our product and user experience on our website and to anticipate future customer requirements. We are working to make PinBud a major online marketplace for local services.

For the user (free personal accounts)
Finding the right service provider using traditional channels like the phone book or online directories could be very irritating.
Are you looking for a carpet cleaner employing that new technology, available on a Saturday, and able to access higher floors? What if you need a new windshield for your car and your budget is only $250? Maybe you need a dentist working in the evenings, or a good, recommended event planner to help with your wedding. You could spend hours calling multiple service businesses like these to find the right one for your problem.
PinBud is the best way to identify and contact multiple service providers
PinBud.ca offers a more convenient, time-saving method of obtaining all the relevant information diligent consumers need. The process is simple:

To compete for the job, service providers will reply to you directly, the way you want it, when you want it. You will have several bids waiting for you in your inbox, or you will get them by phone.
