Checkatrade members are saving time from finances and paperwork, thanks to Powered Now

No one enjoys spending hours preparing quotes and sifting through paperwork at the end of a long day. The good news is, it doesn't have to be that way. Our partners at Powered Now have created an app to make life easier, save you hours of admin time, and make your work so much more efficient. And Checkatrade members get a nice little discount on it.

There’s no denying, tradespeople are some of the hardest-working people out there. You’re not only quoting for new projects, but you’re grafting all day, perhaps managing a team, and then getting stuck into paperwork in the evening.

At Checkatrade, we get it. We understand what you’re up against, and we’ve partnered with some carefully selected brands to get you exclusive discounts and help ease your pain points.

Get your first year free with the Powered Now app using your Checkatrade membership

Powered Now is an affordable and easy-to-use app, designed specifically for tradespeople.

We’ve partnered with Powered Now to give Checkatrade members 1 year free access to the Powered Now app – saving them £180!

Reasons to join

Checkatrade membership

You know about our directory as being the place for homeowners looking for skilled and trusted tradespeople like you.

But did you know a listing in our directory actually increases the likelihood of you getting work?

8 out of 10 people would choose a trade endorsed by Checkatrade compared to one that isn’t endorsed*

Homeowners trust our recognised tick. Rightly so, because tradespeople have to pass 12 rigorous checks to become an Approved Checkatrade member. Could you pass our checks?

Flexible membership to get you the work you want and when you need it

Checkatrade membership is tiered. So once you’ve passed our checks to become an Approved member, you can flex your membership up or down to suit the needs of your business.

  • Approved
  • Lite
  • Standard (the popular option)
  • Pro

If, for example, your diary is filling up and you don’t need as many leads next month, simply flex your membership down to where you need it to be.

  • Get more leads for your growing business
  • Build your reputation
  • Enjoy discounts and benefits from our carefully selected partners

How do I join?

We don’t just let anyone join Checkatrade – you have to pass our checks!
