We pride ourselves on the vetting checks we carry out on our trades, ensuring that you have access to people who care about their customers and their reputation.
You can view the checks we have carried out on each trade on their individual profile page.
Every trade we accept as a member has to successfully pass through our vetting procedure. This includes receiving at least 5 references from previous customers, a face to face interview with one of our Membership Consultants, a Public Liability Insurance check, visual ID check, any applicable qualifications (e.g. gas safe), address validation, their VAT status (registered or not) and that they have agreed to abide by the Checkatrade Standard. All this takes place before a new member will even get on our site!
