Helping trades get back to work

Hello,

Mike, CEO of Checkatrade here. This is an update to let you know that I’ve been working with the Government to help you, along with your fellow trades, to get back to work as lockdown eases.

The Government reached out because they recognised the importance not only of getting the home improvement and repairs industry back on track, but doing so in a way which keeps both you and your customers safe.

 

Helping you get back to work

  • We’ve put together new guidelines for trades working in homes based on current Government guidelines; Just click here to read.
  • We’ve developed a new video and blog for consumers to help clarify how you and your customers can work together to create working environments which are as safe as possible for everyone involved. Feel free to share these with your existing and new customers. Click here to read the homeowner advice article and see below for the video.
  • Look out for our new TV campaign starting later this week. To keep supporting you during these challenging times, it will help your customer know that they are once more able to invite trades into their homes where safe to do so bearing in mind the latest government advice.

I’m incredibly proud to be part of an industry which has followed advice on social distancing so closely, and sacrificed so much in order to protect our NHS and vulnerable people. That is why I’m delighted to be able to play a part on getting it back on its feet.

Please get in touch with us if you’ve got any questions or check out the governments website here.

Kind regards

 

Mike Fairman

CEO Checkatrade
