Kyle and Jackie O: Aussies share their biggest gripes about tradies working in their home💥👩💥💥👩💥

Marty – who works as a gyprocker – revealed a list of things he can’t stand about his clients, ranging from asking ‘stupid’ questions to telling him how he should do his job.

‘Firstly if somebody is calling up a tradie and they need something done, don’t call and ask “hey mate, what do you charge?” because it’s such a broad question and it’s so annoying. “What do you charge?” can mean a million things,’ he said.

Another thing that bothers him is when a client suggests his job shouldn’t take as long as he says it’s going to be.

‘Don’t call and ask for a quote and say “it’s only going to be a half day job, mate” – because you’re telling me how long my job is going to take, I’d be the judge of how long my job is going to take,’ Marty said.

‘Don’t ever call me and say it’s only a half job because most of the time, it’s not. If I’m putting a coat on the wall, it needs another four coats, this needs to dry overnight, it could go on. If you think it’s going to take that long, do it yourself.’

If a client books a tradie in for a job at their home, Marty said it’s your responsibility to organise a car space for them by the time they arrive.

‘Move your car out of the driveway or let us know if there’s an appropriate place to park. There’s nothing worse than rocking up at 7am and there’s nowhere to park. You want the job done, right? You want us to go in and out and be done?’ he said.

Another thing he can’t stand is having a client watch him while he’s working.

‘Don’t silently stare at us while we’re working on your home. It’s really awkward. And don’t ask “is that supposed to be like that?” “Hang on Karen, the job isn’t even done yet”. You can swing by and check up on us but don’t stand there,’ he said.

Marty said clients should always ‘lock up’ their pets and children before they arrive.

‘We are not babysitters and we’re not the entertainment for the day. We don’t want your baby crawling under us, we might have screws or nails, it’s dangerous,’ he said.

‘When we step out the door to go to our truck, your dog would run out the door. Then it’s our responsibility. Please lock up your dogs.’

Ensure you ‘make an attempt’ to move your furniture or have the area clear, he said.

‘Because in our quote, we didn’t put in an option to disassemble or move your pool table in the quote. So make it as clear as possible,’ he said.
