The story behind OUT-SOS

It all started with a broken boiler.

Three days before Christmas 2015, our founder Phil felt a chill in the living room of his London home. His boiler had died, and he needed someone to fix it fast.

Phil scoured the internet for boiler engineers. He searched all of the major service directories and sent over 30 enquiries to local engineers, but two days later, Phil hadn’t had a single response. The small businesses advertising on the local directories had closed for Christmas, but there was no way to tell. Having been let down so badly at such an important time, Phil wanted to create a space where committed individuals that need work done urgently don’t have to compromise on speed or quality of service.


The OUT-SOS promise

We believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise on quality, value or reliability when you’re in a hurry. We believe that every job, no matter how small, should be carried out with care and respect. That’s why the service providers listed on OUT-SOS.com are all vetted and reviewed before we accept them. What’s more, our service providers all make a commitment to respond to job requests on a same-day or next-day basis.


How you can get involved

We’re serving the ‘need it now’ market. The specific requirement people. The people who know that today is always the best time to start. And it’s that sort of attitude we look for in our team.
