Reviews from previous customers are also available to help you to select the ideal tradesperson. Once you've chosen, you can immediately contact the trader by phone, text or email.

Making the selection

When a search has been made, the TrustATrader members who specialise in the relevant trade within the chosen region will be listed.

We allow only a limited number of members to be listed for any one trade in each region, providing a better quality selection for the consumer and guaranteeing a fair share of enquiries for each trader.

Discuss the job

The details of the job can then be discussed.

With costs agreed, and if both parties are happy, a date/timescale can be arranged for the work to be completed.

Job done

Job done

The job is completed as agreed.

Leave a review and pay your trader

Once your job has been completed, leave a review on TrustATrader to let others know the quality of work done by the trader. You can also pay your trader online.

This encourages a continued high standard and helps others to find tradespeople they can trust.

Good results

Reviews left by your satisfied customers boost your rating on TrustATrader, encouraging others to enquire about your services.
