Checkatrade Named Best in the Industry

Checkatrade named Online Trade Directory of the Year 2018 

Checkatrade, the leading online trade directory, has been named the best in the industry.

It has claimed the Online Trade Directory of the Year title at the fourth annual On the Tools Awards evening, assuming the top spot above shortlisted companies Rated People and Plentific. The awards celebrate the best in employees, sub-contractors, tool manufacturers, and companies from across the UK construction industry.

 

25 Awards were announced throughout the night, including the Checkatrade sponsored Roofer of the Year category.

 

The panel of judges – which included the BBC’s carpenter of the year, Tabby Singh – shortlisted entries for each category, with the top spot for some categories being opened to a public vote.

 

Mike Fairman, CEO of Checkatrade said: “This is very much a reflection on the hard work of everyone involved in Checkatrade and we collected the award with pride – both for our people, our members and our company.

 

“The result has come from a combination of judging and public support, so we’d like to thank anyone who cast their vote for us. It feels fitting we should win this award in the year which marks our 20th anniversary.”

 

Checkatrade’s entry demonstrated its commitment to eliminating rogue traders, a value the company was founded on and continues to emphasise 20 years later.

 

The entry also detailed its customer feedback model, trade member benefits and Member Satisfaction Guarantee.
