When it comes to choosing a tradesperson to fix a leak, fit a lock or replace a window, there are plenty of options.

But as well as looking at reviews, asking for recommendations and calling for quotes for the job, we'd be lying if we said we didn't also take the names into account.

And while a solid, respectable name we've heard of before might help inspire confidence, it's no guarantee of quality.

And that means it can pay to stand out - so, with this in mind, tradesperson comparison site decided to track down the best comedy business names in the country.

HaMuch founder Tarquin Purdie said: “With the sheer volume of tradespeople in the UK, standing out from the crowd is an uphill struggle and whether you compete on price, provide a better level of service, or simply catch the eye with a creative company name, it’s important to have a differentiating factor between you and the competition."

It found some tue gems - from the all-female plumbing business Stopcocks to North Lincolnshire gardeners Lawn N Order and Brighton removals firm He-Van .

Here are the best names for a business they tracked down in the UK and Ireland:

  • Spruce Springclean - Cleaners, Cornwall

  • Bonny Tiler - Bathrooms, plumbing, and tiling in the Vale of Glamorgan

  • Jack the Stripper - Wood stripping, painting, decorating in Twickenham
