    I was talking to a plumber who said his new annual membership with checkatrade has gone up to a few pennys short of £1,300 a year which he reckons is almost double what he paid last year. He said he gets a few jobs out of the membership, but is considering whether to rejoin.

    Not sure if he was giving me bull crap, but if he wasn't that is a big increase and a lot of money to pay to be on a website?

    Being nosey I did that earlier but Checkatrade don't show their prices, but just give the nonsense sales rubbish about what great value they offer and how wonderful it is being a member and you should feel privileged if they accept you etc etc

    Checkatrade have the first price they quote but if you play hard ball they will lower it substantially to get you signed up for the year.. if you make contact then dont sign up expect regular calls with ever lower prices being offered. In the 2nd year they will up it substantially as the plumber discovered

    Its all about how you spend your marketing budget............. Last time check-a-trade contacted me they wanted £760 ............. which is more than I spend on my website, logo'ed clothing and all my adverts put together...........

    I politely refused their advances.

    If you are starting out ............. then maybe it might make business sense, but I hear a lot of clients saying they don't trust check-a-trade ratings and feedback ............. word of mouth is better.

    ..A pity the gov cannot put a stop to this CARP ... a previous employer had "Employees paying back -I'll gotten gains
    --If they wanted to remain--Employed--
    (was in our T&C handbook)... just left casual gambling to boost wage ..!

    Employer protected us , probably afraid of what union would do , but still a form of slavery ! ... way back before Maggy stomped on them!
