How To Run A Check On A Tradesman

When comparing quotes between tradesmen and prices do you know what to look for when running a background check on a company? We know the difference between a certified tradesman and a cowboy and we want to make sure you know. Once you have run your checks you can feel confident knowing your property is in safe hands.

Check Company Insurance

Why check company insurance? To make sure the company is covered with public liability insurance in case someone is hurt on your property and check that the company is covered for damage to your home that may result in you hiring other tradesmen.

Simply ask for the insurance certificate and check that they are covered for the job in hand to give you peace of mind that they are covered.


When looking for a tradesman it is important the company is accredited which shows the standard of the work they complete showcasing they are a reputable company.

Here are just a few examples of accreditation for trades.

  • Plumber – Gas safe
  • Electrician – NAPIT
  • Builder – NFB

Before accepting a quote we recommend asking for proof of any accreditation they hold.


Read customer reviews on Google, Facebook etc. if you see plenty of 5 star reviews then you have the peace of mind knowing the reputation they have in your local area.
