Go Local Reactive or, Go Local, is a marketing company that promotes itself online under various guises and websites in order to attempt to capture service calls and pass them to local independent companies, of course taking a commission in the process.
As far as we can ascertain the business was formed by a Daniel Waterhouse in 2010 according to whom the business is based on an American business model.
The company holds membership of various bodies in order to lend itself credibility.
To our knowledge Go Local employs no appliance engineers and is merely a marketing company that subcontracts all repairs.
So far as we aware their experience with any repairs to household products that they advertise to repair is minimal.
Go Local does not hold a very good reputation within the industry.
Early in 2012 some repairers that had carried out work on behalf of Go Local had reported that Go Local had failed to pay them for work carried out. This led to one member producing a document that details the issue of a CCJ for an unsettled debt owed by the company.
At this point many of the repairers have refused to accept any work from Go Local for obvious reasons unless the work is pre-paid.
Update 16 May 2012 - We have heard that a voluntary strike off up order has been issued on this company.
