What is Checkatrade?

When you need work doing around your home, finding reputable trades can be difficult. Can you really trust them? Checkatrade is a free service that gives you the background information you need to make a confident decision.

We offer you a directory of trades and services who have been vetted to our high standards, for example by verifying their insurance, qualifications and professional memberships. Not only that, but we also monitor their work on an ongoing basis by collecting feedback directly from their customers.

Since 1998 we have collected 1,232,181 customer reports which give you the facts about the strengths and weaknesses of our listed companies. You know what you are getting. Recommendation, reputation, and a standard you can trust.

How does it work?


"I'm really glad there is a company like Checkatrade around; saves all of us a lot of time, trouble and money. I wouldn't get a tradesman in unless I knew he was part of the Checkatrade system."

"I will only use trades who are registered on Checkatrade because it is so difficult to find reliable and expert help otherwise. I find the customer feedback helps me to choose the one that will suit my needs."
