Connecting consumers with quality tradespeople since 1998

What is Checkatrade?

When you need work doing around your home, finding reputable trades can be difficult. Where do you look and how do you know if you can really trust them?
Checkatrade is a FREE service that gives consumers access to reputable trades in their area and all the background information they need to make a confident decision when allowing them into their home.

Our trades and services have been vetted to our high standards by verifying their insurance, qualifications and professional memberships. Not only that, but we also monitor their work on an on-going basis by collecting feedback directly from their customers.

Our members join us to build their reputation and differentiate themselves from rogue traders and cowboy builders.

Why it works

The success of Checkatrade lies in the power of partnership.

Consumers want to find trades on whom they can rely on to do a good job.
Our trades and services want to work with genuine customers who trust them from the start.
Checkatrade brings the two together.

“Using the Checkatrade site, I was able to find the information I was looking for and make an informed decision. The company lived up to my expectations.” Customer in Epsom

Millions of Reviews

Our members hand out a feedback card with each job and we put these reviews online for all to see. We have now published over 3.1 million reviews.

Due to the feedback being visible to anyone looking at their page, our members work hard to ensure they achieve high scores and excellent feedback.
