No One Else Checks Traders Like Checkatrade!

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 14 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.


Every trader is interviewed by our professionals.

ID Checks

We carry out identification checks.

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.


All members are continually monitored via their customer's feedback. We recommend that all new members supply at least 3 of their previous customers which we personally telephone to find out about their experience. This aids us to establish the quality of the trade.


We check all our members for county court judgements.

Trading History

We check the trading history of all our members.


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.
