Hi and a very warm welcome to Frome Business Web, where you not only have access to a talented Team of Website Designers, Builders and Search Engine Optimisation experts, but also Frome’s Premier Online Directory, listing literally hundreds of local Trades, Services and Businesses, who are waiting for your call and all from the local Frome area.
Of course it would be extremely difficult to go through every single Listing Category covered by Frome Business Web, but below we’ll walk you through a selection, so that you can get a good feel for the types of Businesses that you’ll be able to find, as and when you need them.
Under our Frome Building Related Services category we list a plethora of firms to help you with your Building project needs, from Builders, Block Pavers, Brick Paving, Builders Merchants, Building Plastics – Materials, Builders and Restoration to Carpenters, Architectural Ironmongery, Bricklayers, Bespoke Joinery, Ceramic Tiling, Conservatories and Dry Lining.
Additionally, Frome Business Web lists Builder specialists such as Building Disability Modifications experts, Specialists, Building Maintenance firms, Builders Materials centres where you can purchase Builders Tools, Building Contractors of course and if you’re thinking of having a Loft Conversion, Barn Conversion or looking to have a New Build constructed, we can put you in touch with skilled, experienced and qualified local Frome based companies.
Also listed in the Frome Building Related Services category are Suppliers, Services and Trades people from the Electrical field such as Electricians, Electrical Contractors, Commercial Electricians, Industrial Electrician, Electrical Wholesalers, Electrical Rewiring, Electric Gates suppliers, Electrical Training Est. And related firms such as Emergency Lighting firms, Automatic Gates suppliers and installers, Air Conditioning Unit firms, Burglar Alarms, Dehumidifiers and general Lighting specialists.
When it comes to Heating Engineers and Central Heating Systems, we’ve got this covered too. Maybe you’re going the ‘green’ route and looking for Solar Heating and Solar Panels experts and suppliers? Underfloor Heating or Undertile Heating? We can help find Boiler Installation and Boiler Repair firms, Boiler Service providers and LPG Boiler suppliers, Condensing Boilers, Fireplaces and much more besides.
Plumbers come in very handy when you’re having a Bathroom or Kitchen make-over, or if you’ve had an extension built i.e. Kitchen, Utility, Bathroom Toilet etc and need the Plumbing sorted. A Plumber is also required when you’re having solar Heating installed in order to balance the system.
Bathroom Design needs some forethought – you might have been dreaming about your ideal Bathroom for some time, so you’ll definitely want an experienced team of designers and installers working on this project for you. We can help you here with our Bathroom Installation, Bathrooms and Bathroom Design listings.
If you’ve had an extension built, you may well need to engage the services of a Drainage expert, so please take a look at our Drainage listings and local Frome based firms like Aquarius Waste Management will be able to assist you.
If you’re engaged in a House Clearance you’ll probably need to get rid of some waste or rubbish at some stage, so the local Waste Management or Rubbish Removals firm will be able to help with this. If there’s a lot to go – maybe you’re renovating, well then, a local Frome based Skip Hire company might suit your needs better. Don’t forget that some ‘rubbish’ can be recycled – contact one of our Recycling and Scrap Services firms to organise this for you.
There’s no doubt about it – moving house can be a nightmare and very stressful if it’s disorganised, so engaging the services of a good local Removals firm is very important. A Frome based Man and Van can also assist with this type of project and is also flexible in that they often have some smaller vans in their fleet, which means that they can move smaller items for you such as a Piano, bikes, pieces of individual furniture or they might be very useful when the kids are off to their University digs come the late summer.
Are you in need of some muscle in the garden? Maybe you’re on the lookout for a local Landscaping firm or firm of Arborists to get that tree back under control or remove it altogether? Tree Surgeons, Garden Centres and Garden Design experts can be found under our Home and Garden Related category, plus Garden Maintenance firms and other Landscaping services such as those providing assistance in the design and installation of Garden Ponds and Water Features. Frome Business Web lists them all.
It can be very irritating when a motorist ‘re-styles’ your garden wall, but we can put you in touch with a wealth of Stone related local Frome firms who can take the pain out of getting this type of thing resolved. Not only that but if you’re looking for Stone for any project, such as Stone Flooring, Stone Tiles, Stone for a Pond or Water Feature, for pathways, driveways, walls of raised beds or even for building homes and extensions, visit Frome Business Web and view our Stone Repairs, Stone Restoration, Stone Supplies, Stone Walling, Stone Work, Stonemason, Stonemasons and Stonemasonry listings.
Don’t we all LOVE cleaning? No? Clearly not, but it’s not really something that we can ignore forever, so having access to a wealth of Frome Cleaning experts and supplies firms can take the ‘pain’ of this necessary ‘evil’ away, which is fantastic. Need Cleaning Contractors? Then look no further. Need the Cleaning Services of a Cleaner or Contract Cleaner? We’ve got it covered. Find also a Frome based Cleaning Firm, Carpet Cleaner, Carpet Stains specialists, Cleaning Supplies firms, Commercial Cleaning companies, general Carpet Cleaners and Rug Cleaning experts, all listed and available in the local Frome area.

You can also click through to each firm’s website and view examples of their work, testimonials from past clients, find out more about them such as how long they’ve been in business and what services, supplies and products they provide and even details on prices.
With Audio Visual technology moving on so quickly, we do like to try to keep our tech as up to date as possible and when we reach that point where we want to replace our old TV and perhaps go in for a nice flat screen, HD ready, LCD/3D piece of wizardry, it’s good to know your local Audio-Visual Services suppliers, Aerial Supplies and Aerial Suppliers, experts in the Digital Switchover field, Satellite firms and TV Retailers. We’ll also need to know those who can provide us with a Digital Radio and HiFi equipment.
It’s important these days with the Internet being so widely used, that we ensure our own Business name, Business telephone number and very importantly, Business website address and Business email address are displayed on our Business vehicles. How many times have you been sat in traffic and been reading the website address and other details of a company that has this detailed on the back or side of their vehicle? It makes good marketing sense to take full advantage of this type of opportunity and therefore local Signage firms are good to know so that if you don’t already have this, you can get it organised. Signage is also of course needed for many other things from Business and Shop signs to clubs and much more. Frome based Shopfitting experts and Office Design firms could also be of interest to you if you run your own Business, along with Office Installation, Office Furniture and Office Products providers.
Our Business Related Services categories cover a very wide range of local Frome Businesses. For instance, we list CCTV, Banners, Cameraman, Printers, Promotions, Lithographers, Marketing professionals, Promotions, Solicitors and even Water Coolers firms. Need to promote an event, your Business, Club or Charity event? Want your team to have T-Shirts with your emblem or logo on? Then have a look at our Promotions, promotional Products and T Shirt Printers. Are you in the Event Management Business? Then many of our listed firms from Frome and surrounds will be very useful to you, including Audio-Visual Services, Corporate Entertainment, Couriers, Digital Print, Sign Makers, Video Editing and Video Production and even Website Designers, when you need to set up and promote a particular Event or Conference.

With alternative medicine and treatments being so popular these days, it’s good to know that you can find a list of your local Frome based Hypnotherapists and Homeopaths quickly and easily. Find also Health Food Shops, Acupuncture, Allergies help, Aloe Vera and Natural Skin Care Products suppliers and a range of Complimentary Medicine firms in your area. Got a Phobia? No problem.

When you’re organising a Wedding you need to draw on the expertise of many Trades and Services, Suppliers and Businesses. Accommodation, Guest Houses, B&B, Hotels, venues for the Wedding Reception, Caterers, Marquee Hire firms, Hairdressers, Wedding Gown suppliers or Tailors, Florists, entertainment, Disco’s, Balloons, Wedding Favours – you name it, there’s a lot to sort out, but once again, Frome Business Web makes this task much easier by including many Wedding related categories of listings to help you; Event Management, Goldsmith, Silversmith, Glass Jewellery, Jewellery, Wedding Planning, Weddings, Wedding Photographers, Photographers, Inflatables, Creche Facilities, Engravers, Interiors, Linen, Boat Hire, Catering Equipment, Catering Equipment Hire, Coach Hire, Minibus Hire, Taxis, Discos – Mobile, Entertainers, Entertainments, Event Bars, Event Hire, Fancy Dress, Mobile Bars and Portable Toilet Hire.

More of us are taking to our bikes these days to enjoy the countryside, get and keep fit or simply as a leisure activity. Find local Frome based bike and cycling related firms via categories such as Cycle Accessories, Cycle Repairs, Cycle Parts & Cycle Hire.
Not something we want to have to think about particularly, but at some point we’re likely to need to know who our local Frome based Funeral Directors are - when a loved one passes away. And, if you need the services of Monumental Memorials or Monumental Masons, Frome Business Web is on hand to help.
Moving on, something we hopefully all have a good balance of (against working) is our leisure time and Frome Business Web has a whole host of leisure activity specialists listed, so if you’re looking for something particular or just need some inspiration, why not take a look? Tours, Theatres, Scuba Diving, Paintball – not quite your thing? Maybe you ride horses, then an Equestrian Centre might be of interest. Slightly more energetic are Martial Arts and Boxing Clubs or for those with an ear for music, how about Music Shops and Musical Societies? If you like to feel the fear and do it anyway, try Abseiling and for those who prefer something much, much safer, try Bonsai. Want to capture loved ones, parties, events, outings, plants and more? Then check out our list of Camera Shops. Feeling crafty? How about attending Floristry School? Want a night night out with friends or your other half? Opt for Cinemas. Childrens Discos and Fancy Dress will keep them amused and for those who like to fish, try Anglers, Fishing Tackle Shop, Fishing Tackle Supplies, Barbel Fishing Rods, or Custom Built Carp Rods. Looking to holiday? Then try our Holiday Lets and Holiday Villas listings on Frome Business Web.
Children’s Entertainment and Party Balloons come in very handy for a little one’s birthday celebrations and you can also search for Party Supplies firms and Party Entertainers in and around Frome. Who knows when Prop Hire will come in handy – maybe you’re having a themed party of event? Entertainments come in many guises and for an event or celebration with a difference, why not check out Narrow Boat Hire?
For Restaurants listed in and around the Frome area, try our English Restaurants, Chinese Restaurants, Italian Restaurants, Indian Restaurants or even local Pubs and Child Friendly Pubs for those days when you need a family friendly eatery.

How Important a Strong Web Presence Is
A quote from Prince Charles from the Daily Telegraph on Saturday 10th Oct. 2009:
"Access to the Internet is increasingly being considered a necessity. There is not a business in the country, with ambition to succeed, that does not have an email address or a website."
