    CheckaTrade. Worth rejoining?

    I was on CheckaTrade for domestic work up until a year ago and then left as I was pursuing other work. Anyone still on it? They're pestering me to rejoin and keep dropping the price. Is that a sign the whole thing's gone belly up?

    Checkatrade - one review to join!!!!

    Apart from 'check a rip off' stitching their customers up (the tradespeople who pay to advertise with them) by increasing their annual fees by up to 100% (as recently mentioned on here), they also used to require a number of customer recommendations before they would have you on their website (I...

    Check a Trade. Com

    Anyone had experience with this company? Suspect they are like similar companies trying to con us into paying for work when there is not much about, preying on the vunerable. Think we pay enough money on scams, any views?
