Find a Trade

Find a Trade – its easy, choose the best company for you

When you have received all the estimates that you have requested, you can use information about each company available on the site, to help you find the right tradesperson/company. 

Here is an overview of the type of information we display to help you decide which tradesperson/company to select.
  • Company details
  • Up to 5 customer references supported by photographs of previous work done
  • Limited company registration
  • VAT registration number
  • Public liability insurance
  • Company insured with
  • Value insured to
  • Accreditations

  • Part P membership scheme providers are: BREC-ECA, BSI, ELECSA, NAPIT or NICEIC
  • Additional accreditations
  • Up to 5 additional qualifications, including who was the awarding body and the relevant certificate/membership number.

Consider asking for references and try to make sure they are relevant for similar jobs they have done to yours. Many of our members have references posted on our site for you to review and check out.

For larger projects, it may also be worth calling their insurance company to check the validity of the trade's liabilities and coverage.

Ensure a tradesperson/company shows you their appropriate documents BEFORE they start work. (Gas Safe Register, Part P membership, insurances etc.) It may be too late afterwards.

If they quote accreditations check them out using the Internet or calling the awarding body.

Use the success criteria you selected when you posted the job to help you choose - and eventually rate - a company / tradesperson. We will ensure all trades that contact you know your criteria so that they can tailor their proposal to your specific needs.

At FindaTrade we take security seriously and we strongly recommend you always validate a company's current registration/accreditation details and ensure they have the necessary up to date insurances.
