What is the Checkatrade guarantee?

The tick that means you're guaranteed

The guarantee is a backup. We’d always expect you to try to make things right first, but if you can’t we’d step in to help make things right for your customer* (Eligibility criteria and T&Cs apply).

Each job is guaranteed by £1,000 for up to 12 months*.

What does the guarantee cover?

Our guarantee gives homeowners up to £1,000 of cover*, and it won’t cost you or them a penny. There are no excess or hidden charges (Eligibility criteria and T&Cs apply).

Work that is seen as ‘sub-standard’ or ‘doesn’t meet industry regulations’ will be eligible for this guarantee. We always send out a surveyor to check if there’s any truth in your customer’s complaint.

Do I have to pay extra as a member to be a guaranteed member?

Nope. Being a Checkatrade member alone is enough.

What does the customer have to do to make the claim?

They will need to follow 3 steps.

First, they need to contact you as their tradesperson to explain why they’re not happy. They will then give you a deadline (usually 7 days) to sort the issue.

If you do not resolve the issue, then the customer will move on to the second step. They will have needed to leave you a review on our website within 30 days of work being completed.

Third, they will then complete a claim form. It is at this point we will then start the process and speak with you about the issue before preparing a surveyor to come out and review the work.

To find out more, read the guarantee T&Cs.
