A local plumbers directory is a listing of plumbing companies and plumbing contractors in a region. For instance, Getdirectory.co.za is a local plumber listing for Gauteng. As most would want to search for “plumbers near me”, the directory offers an opportunity to compare local service providers.
A directory can either be a hard copy listing of companies or an online business directory. However, these days the most effective means of finding a plumbing company is through online plumbing website listings.
The manner of presentation of businesses on an online business listing differs depending on the layout. Some websites prefer to arrange the plumbing listings in order of the alphabet, while other layout plumbers by region. In fact, on some online listings it is possible to filter the list of plumbers according to user preference.
For instance, a user may choose to view plumbers by specialization, by location, or by other means like alphabet or name.
Listings give user information about various plumbing contractors in a summary form. Prospecting clients can then direct themselves to the plumbers’ websites if they so wish to get further information.
