Salve! from Julius Caesar

Our television ads in 2021 and 2022 have featured our biggest fan, Julius Caesar. Or as his mates call him, Jules.

Introducing betrayed emperor and massive Checkatrade fan, Julius Caesar

Finding a tradesperson isn’t always easy. Some people decide that to find a top-notch tradesperson they should ask their family, friends or neighbours. We also know that sometimes these recommendations don’t work out.

That’s why we’re here, to provide you with recommendations you can truly rely on. We believe this so much we’ve created a new advertising campaign to bring this to life.

Julius Caesar, aka Jules, has had his fair share of being betrayed by someone he thought he could trust. That’s why he only trusts Checkatrade – they always do the job right, and they definitely won’t stab him in the back.
