A little bit about Selco

Selco started out as a small, family-owned business in Birmingham in 1895. But since then, it’s become the fastest-growing builders’ merchant in the UK!

That’s right, it currently has over 60 branches nationwide, and plans to grow even further in the coming months. With tons of stock at trade prices, from 100s of trade brands that you know and trust, Selco has got you covered whatever your trade.

Why we chose to partner with Selco

At Checkatrade, we pride ourselves on being able to help ease the load for our members – whether that’s helping you to get more work or finding small ways to make your life easier day-to-day.

  • The products you need from the brands you trust
  • Competitive trade prices
  • Fast and easy delivery options

Every Selco branch stocks over 15,000 trade products, while the whole range is available to buy online.

More reasons to join Checkatrade

Joining Checkatrade gets you an enviable range of exclusive discounts and offers, on everything from insurance to customised workwear. But if saving money isn’t enough of a draw for you, don’t despair. There are many more reasons to join Checkatrade.

1. Win more business

A Checkatrade membership means securing a listing for your business in the no. 1 trade directory – which, in turn, means more brand exposure and more business won!

Checkatrade has been going for more than 20 years (that’s right, we’ve outlasted the Y2K scare and the Nokia 3210 – read our blog about what Checkatrade has outlasted if you don’t believe us!). During that time, we’ve gained a reputation amongst homeowners as the place to find skilled and trusted tradespeople in their area.

1 in 4 homeowners using Checkatrade are checking quality credentials before going direct*

2. Enhance trust with homeowners

Not just anyone can become an Approved Checkatrade member. To earn our recognised tick, you’ll have to pass 12 rigorous checks.

Homeowners know this. So, becoming an Approved member and gaining that sought-after tick is a sure-fire way to enhance trust and gain credibility with the homeowners who could give you your next job.

Don’t believe us? 8 out of 10 people would choose a tradesperson we've checked over one we haven't.*

3. Take control of your membership

Checkatrade membership is flexible, which means 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.

For example, is your diary looking chocka this month? Then you might not need as many leads from us. In this case, you can just flex your membership down accordingly.

Our membership tiers are Approved, Lite, Standard (the most popular) and Pro. Ultimately, this puts you in complete control over the volume of leads you get and how much you pay each month.
