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.
