Question Is Sulekha useful still?

I remember using Sulekha some 15 years back for something. It was somewhat of a good website then.

Is is still a good place to find repairman / plumbers etc? If no, any alternatives?

Re: Is Sulekha useful still?

I haven't used it for over 7-8 years now, and even then it was a big hodge-podge with cluttered layout. Now I go to local desi websites with similar crappy layouts.

Re: Is Sulekha useful still?

Assuming this is in US, how about yelp or craigslist? A referral from neighbors, friends or coworkers might be more reliable.

Never used sulekha. It's a mess.
