    I was a bit sceptical at first due to the cost, but since joining Checkatrade I have been in undated with enquires, emails and work, I am now booked up until march, I am very happy!

    I wasn't too sure in joining Checkatrade at the start, I had an appointment with a membership consultant who was really informative and in now way pushy,he explained what it was that Checkatrade did and since joining I have been getting a lot of work, mainly the bigger jobs rather than the smaller ones.

    I joined Checkatrade last year around April/May time, I am a roofer and I was struggling to find regular work and found myself sub contracting for larger companies to get by. Joining Checkatrade was the best thing I have ever done regarding running my own business. On the first day I went live, I received my first phone call enquiry and it just went from there, since I have joined I have not been without work, roughly 90% of my business comes from Checkatrade and by completing my work to a standard, I am receiving more phone calls due to great customer feedback. I thoroughly recommend Checkatrade to anyone in the trade looking to increase their business income.

    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.
