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 1,221,547 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.
