About Trades Check® NZ

Trades Check NZ Aims To Make Dealing With Tradespeople in New Zealand Safer.

Trades Check® was born out of the idea to make improving your home easier and safer.

Trades Check NZ For Consumers

By providing home improvement information and ideas, plus details of tradespeople that are reputable to deal with across New Zealand, Trades Check hopes your next home improvement project will be an enjoyable experience.

By promoting trade businesses that are registered with industry organisations and/or licensed to do the work they advertise, you can feel safer when hiring them to carry out work around your home.

Trades Check takes the gamble out of hiring a tradesman to do work for you by displaying what they are licensed to do, especially when licensing is required by New Zealand law.

Some work must only be carried out by licensed tradespeople; it is a legal requirement in New Zealand, yet there are ‘cowboys’ out there who are not licensed but carry out the work in customers homes anyway.

Trades Check also checks the trade businesses NZBN/IRD to ensure it is linked to the company name you are dealing with and state the proper trading name (if it is different), so you know exactly who you are dealing with. The trade may not be registered for GST, meaning you don’t have to pay GST on top of the bill; this is something many people get caught out with.

It is better to be safe than sorry, so always use a tradesperson that appears on Trades Check because we have checked them out for you.
