Survey ranks the ‘friendliest’ trades

Given that manners and behaviour can often leave a lasting impression, My Job Quote surveyed 1,482 Brits to discover who they believe to be the friendliest tradespeople.

The survey found that 68% of people said that plumbers are the friendliest, coming in third behind electricians (75%) and gardeners (71%).

Contrastingly, it seems tilers are damningly the least friendly tradespeople – with only 23% categorising them as friendly. Just above, 29% consider kitchen specialists to be friendly.
