We are looking for local heroes.
Do not name and shame.
Tell us about the tradies that came to the rescue.
The honest, hard working ones.
We want to hear your stories.

Apprentice success stories
The advice or tip from a tradesman that helped you save $.
Were you rescued in the middle of the night from a faulty......a broken....... a leaking......?
Have you been ripped off, scammed, taken advantage of? What happened? Who helped you in the end.
Tradies get a bad rap.
But not all tradies are bad. This page is to hear the wrongs that were made right.
A place to tell your story of Melbourne tradies that have gone above and beyond their call. To help out where others have not or could not.
There are hundreds of stories, thousands.
Tell yours here.
But we have a rule. Don't name and shame the dodgy dealer. That will get us all in trouble and we will remove the comments. Why? Because it's potentially libelous if not proven and the tradesman that you name can sue you. So be careful.
Be loud and proud and tell us about the tradesman or woman that helped you when no one else would.
With their permission, tell us who they are, so others can benefit.
We want to give work to those trades that deserve it.
For your story to be posted on the Real Tradesmen of Melbourne page, and be in the running for monthly prize – it must be a positive story. Any negative story, must conclude with a positive outcome – we want to know your good news or it will not be posted.
