About Local Heroes

At Local Heroes, we make it easy to get jobs done in and around your home. We use smart tech and a dedicated in house team we match you with skilled, local tradespeople, all of who have been vetted by us. And because we’re backed by British Gas, we can guarantee the work for up to 12 months.

Local Heroes started in 2016 after we realised there must be an easier way to find reliable and trustworthy professionals to do skilled jobs in people’s homes. Our first customers were in Croydon with just two plumbers (Craig and Craig) and since then, we’ve been on a mission to help get jobs done hassle free in more and more homes with more and more trades.

We’ve come a long way since 2016. Today, our network includes over 7,000 local companies across the UK – and we cover just about everything. From plumbing and plastering to decorating and electrics, no job’s too big or small.

So far, we’ve helped almost 150,000 customers in their homes, and have done so with a 4.7 out of 5 independent rating on Trustpilot. And as we grow, we continue offering more and more services.


Our team vets every tradesperson on the Local Heroes platform to make sure they have the right qualifications and skillset. You can book your job at a time that suits you and with a 12 month guarantee, you know you’re in safe hands.

When the job’s done, there’s no need to worry about getting cash out. You can just pay online - it’s quick and easy.

All in all, we believe in keeping things simple for both our customers and Heroes.
