Checkatrade is a business built on word of mouth. The best person to give a recommendation is the customer — so see for yourself what our members say about Checkatrade.

    Initially I was apprehensive of joining Checkatrade, as I have previously spent money on other advertisements that have not worked. Checkatrade is the one it has doubled my business, I get a lot of local work and I am very very happy. I have recommended other businesses to join.

    I was recommended to join Checkatrade by a friend who is doing really well from it, I wasn't sure what to expect before joining and now since becoming a member I am so overwhelmed with the results. I have gained a lot of work and I get at least a phone call every other day from customers who has found me on Checkatrade. I have noticed the more feedback I get the more calls I get, and the calls turn into jobs also. I am very impressed!

    At Portsmouth Electrical we have been extremely happy with the impact Checkatrade has had on our business. We receive telephone calls and e-mails on an almost daily basis inquiring for electrical works to be quoted which regularly results in work. We're a reasonably new company and Checkatrade has been a valuable asset in helping us promote our company maintaining a consistent flow of work.

    I have never used Checkatrade before and I thought it was going to be the typical company that takes your money and puts you on a website, this is not true, this company is so much more. I love the ethos and passion of the company, the fact that they are strict on the traders they take on and take off the site. I like the structure of the feedback and how the trader with the most recent feedback goes to the top of the page, this makes it much fairer in smaller businesses gaining work especially when up against the larger businesses. Even the small little touches of the welcome pack you receive once you have applied is really good. I am very impressed!

    I have been a member for 4 years and it's the best move I have ever made, I get lots of feedback, I get notifications once my feedback has been published, I always get my feedback cards and vehicle vinyls on time. I have never had a problem.

    Checkatrade reaches the right customers, it gives customers peace of mind and it keeps the phone ringing for us...It works!

    Its been great for me, I have managed to get a lot of work through Checkatrade, I have also recommended other traders to join.

    - Martin Browning, M.P. Browning Ltd | 8 January 2015

    Lovely people, great team to deal with; very, very happy! I get a lot of work through checkatrade and if I hadn't have joined when I did I wouldn't have had the work that I did - I was busy all year through Checkatrade work.

    I was a bit skeptical about joining to begin with but since joining in August 2014 it has doubled my workload and I am now booked up until May 2015, best thing I have ever done, I couldn't recommend it more!

    I have invested in other companies but they have not generated as much work for me as what Checkatrade has. By being a member of Checkatrade it has brought a lot more enquiries my way and customers now find it easier to find me. Overall I am very very happy!
