Success story | Alex from Abco Plumbing Solutions

Here we share Alex’s story

Alex grew up in a family of hard-working plumbers; he started out by helping his dad and brothers with their plumbing work on the weekends. As the years went by, he fell in love with the industry and decided to build his own business, Abco Plumbing Solutions. 

He started out as a sole trader and took on jobs throughout Sydney. Now, 16 years later, he has his own team of plumbers, 5 trucks on the road and 24/7 emergency plumbing services.

Challenges before Oneflare

Alex needed a quick and effective way to connect with genuine, high-quality customers. This was challenging because he didn’t have a strong online presence and had very few reviews and ratings to prove the quality of his work.

“Before I started with Oneflare, I didn’t have many reviews and I wasn’t winning much work. The more time and effort I put into [Oneflare], the more I started to feel that I was starting to win more work because of the reviews. I was starting to get a lot of repeat work, and a lot of genuine customers.” – Alex
