Let’s get straight to the point.

Most of our tradespeople and customers are curious to know what they key differences are between us and similar tradespeople platforms such as Check A Trade, that’s why we wanted to put it to you simply. However, we always welcome further questions so please make sure you get in touch if you have in.

Check A Trade – The Basics for Tradespeople

How much do you pay for a Check A Trade Account?

Most people will pay £600 for an annual subscription, or a monthly subscription for £60 a month. Whilst this might look relatively more costly than Rated People, the value depends on how many jobs you take from advertising on the website. The more jobs you take on, the more of a saving you’ll make on Check A Trade.

Check A Trade more closely resembles a traditional directory where users can search for and contact Tradespeople directly. For this reason, potential customers of yours may contact during a time when you can’t take a job due to a busy workload.

Furthermore, people who hold more than one business in different specialities may be forced to pay separate subscriptions to be listed in the search results for different trades. This may mean paying £600 twice to be listed in both carpentry and electrician lists if you specialise in each of these trades.

Tradespeople need to do the legwork?

The majority of the legwork, online, will be ensuring that your profile is a shining example of professionalism and high reputation. The only way that a homeowner would be more willing to pick you for a quote over others in the same area is if your profile stands out from the competition.

Check A Trade has a mobile app catered towards the homeowner, with no offerings for the tradesman as of March 2017. That said, the website is mobile-responsive and does everything a tradesperson would need on their mobile phone.
