The Most Thorough Vetting and Monitoring Checks

No One Else Checks Traders Like Checkatrade!


Why Go Anywhere Else


Since 1998 Checkatrade has been the consumers first choice in finding a tradesperson. *

Why? Because we only allow the best tradespeople to become members. We have 16 considerations of which, 13 are actual checks. Our vetting process has proven to be the most significant way of protecting our consumers and achieving the Checkatrade mission of stamping out rogue traders.

Here are some of the vetting checks our members have before they can join Checkatrade.

Interviews

Every trader is interviewed by our professionals.

ID Checks

We carry out identification checks and permissions to work in the UK.

Accreditations and Qualifications

Not all trades require accreditations by law, so you may not see this on every member’s profile. However, any accreditations or qualifications you do see advertised on one of our trader’s profiles have been checked and verified by us.

References

All members are continually monitored via their customer's feedback. Before they make it onto our site we personally telephone at least 5 of their previous customers to find out about their experience. This aids us to establish the quality of the trade.

CCJ's

We check all our new members for county court judgements.

Trading History

We check the trading history of all our members so you get to know the companies you choose.

Insurance

Our members are proud to have public liability insurance to protect their customers for the unexpected.

Let’s not forget we have millions of customer reviews to read from. There’s no better way to choose your tradesperson!

Find a Tradesperson

Every member has their own profile page where you can find photos, review their accreditations and information of their public liability insurance.
