Committed to quality

When it comes to our homes, trust and quality matter. An estimated 6.7 million UK adults are impacted by rogue trades every year. That’s why, since 1998, we’ve been committed to championing trade excellence.

We’re known for our high standards. Every trade that wants to join us must pass up to 12 checks before they can gain our seal of approval.

  • Trades must prove they are who they say they are, and that where necessary they are qualified to do the work.
  • We check they’ve never been bankrupt, insolvent, struck off a directorship, or subject to a county court judgement.
  • They must prove that they give their customers consistently exceptional experiences.

Last year, we rejected over 1,200 trades who failed our checks. We’re proud to be selective.

And we never stop checking. Members must achieve continually positive reviews throughout their membership, which we spot-check and verify to ensure they’ve been left by real people, about real experiences.

In the rare event that something goes wrong with a job, Checkatrade will help make things right. Jobs booked through our platform are guaranteed for 12 months, up to £1,000. Terms and conditions apply.

You wouldn’t get this with any other way of finding a tradesperson.
