Local Heroes - Local Heroes (company) - Netflix

Local Heroes is a British online on-demand end-to-end service which connects people with local plumbers, electricians and other tradespeople. It was launched in early 2016 by multinational utility company Centrica as an innovation of its subsidiary, British Gas. It operates across Great Britain and works with a network of independent local tradespeople to fulfil customer jobs. All tradespeople are approved by British Gas and must have required qualifications relevant to their trade.

Local Heroes - Pricing and payments - Netflix

When a user completes the form requesting a tradesperson, Local Heroes uses market research and historical data to provide an estimated price range for the requested job. If accepted, the Local Hero will then provide a final quote directly to the user which they can choose whether to accept or not. As all jobs are guaranteed by British Gas, the user must pay directly to Local Heroes and will void the guarantee if cash is paid. Once a job is complete, the tradesperson creates a bill for the customer who can then choose to pay via PayPal or credit card.
