How can we help you?

Recommending local services on Neighbourly

If you’d like to recommend a local service in your area, head to Neighbourly's Recommendations page within the Classifieds section. Your neighbours will be able to see all the great places you recommend, and you’ll be able to ask your neighbours for advice on their favourite local services.

To create the most neighbourly environment possible, we encourage members to focus on the good qualities of a service, such as affordability, reliability and quality of work. If the business you're wanting to recommend is a home based business, eg handyman or babysitter, they might appreciate a heads up from you before you pass on their contact details to other Neighbourly members. 

Please note - you must have actually experienced a business or service to post a recommendation. If you would like to recommend or promote your own business or services, please do this from your business profile
