At the heart of Checkatrade is our founder Kevin and a team who have a passion to solve the issue of rogue trades and keep the work in the hands of those that deserve it most.

Big corporations have and will continue to copy us but nothing can substitute our passion, our experience and our long proven track record (since 1998).

Call us to find out what being a member means and join the UK’s most trusted brand for finding quality trades - not to mention one of the biggest success stories in the UK today.

So what are you looking for before you hand over your hard earned money?

I don’t want to buy leads.

Good, we think selling consumers personal details is wrong; we will never do it.

I want it to work

…and so do we. The last thing we want is an ex-member telling others that membership has not worked. With over 700,000 web visits a month, 1,000,000 consumer reviews and £1.4 billion generated for our members each year - it definitely works. Call any of our members and ask them!

I want a proven track record

Over 90% of our members re-join each year. Approximately 5% stop working for personal reasons and 3% are suspended by us. This leaves just 2 out of 100 that leave because they state membership has not worked for them.

I want to see the scheme advertised well

We massively reinvest our members' annual subscriptions into marketing. 2014 national sponsorships include ITV’s Daybreak Weather and Channel 5’s Cowboy Builders.

I want a scheme that knows what they are doing

No one has more experience or knowledge than us. We have been in business since 1998.

I want excellent customer service

We are national award winners for customer service. All our members are looked after by a dedicated membership advisor who will be your point of contact when you need us.
