Our Checks

Hiring a tradesperson for your home or business is an important decision, and it’s essential to ensure that the person you hire is reliable, trustworthy, and skilled. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to determine
whether they meet these criteria, and there are plenty of stories of homeowners who have been ripped off or received shoddy work from unscrupulous tradespeople. This is where a service that does checks on skilled workers can be invaluable.

Company Trade Check

The Company Trade Check is ideal for a tradesperson and/or contractor who is a registered company. It includes all Checks 1-8 and is $200 plus GST. The only difference is the Credit Check as this should not be
done on an individual.

1. Business Check: Is it a registered business and what is its status – limited liability, sole trader, trust, etc. – so you can know what kind of protection they have? (Especially when it comes to deposits.)

2. Directors Name Check: Who are the shareholders and directors of the business – are they involved in any other businesses? Does their history have previously closed businesses? (Do they have a pattern of shutting down and starting again.)

3. Business Fine Check: Have they been fined by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE)? Have they been caught bringing in immigrant labour and not meeting the requirements of looking after them? Have they had prior issues with paperwork filing?

4. Tribunal Check: Have they been to the disputes tribunal and what were the outcomes?

5. WorkSafe Check: Have they been prosecuted by WorkSafe or issued a serious warning? (Minorwarnings won’t come through.) Have they failed to comply with the Health and Safety Act? (Notproviding a safe workplace – this is important because of such a high death rate in the industry.)

6. Trade Registration Check: Are they registered as a trade in New Zealand? The biggest difference is insurance – if the tradesperson can’t present their insurance, they can’t register. An unregistered tradie, doing any work has no insurance to do a pay-out should something go wrong.

7. Trade or Industry Complaints Check: This dives into any issues with professional bodies (MasterElectrician, Master Builder, BICTO, there are more than half a dozen in NZ) to do with their performance and quality of work. This can be minor, and/or they can cancel their registration and stop them from trading.

8. Credit Check: Are there any debts and do they pay their bills on time? Please note that this is for the Company Trade Check only.

Additional Checks:

 9. Supplier Check: This requires consent from the Solo Trade or the Company Trade involved. We will check that they pay their suppliers on time and that there are no outstanding debts. This provides peace of mind when it comes to your deposit being used to purchase your supplies. This is an additional $50 plus GST when added to either the Solo Trade Check or the Company Trade Check.

10. Additional Sub-Trade Check: Ideal if you engage a builder, who then needs to bring in an electrician. We can provide an additional Solo Trade Check for $100 plus GST when added to either the Solo Trade Check or the Company Trade Check.

By performing our Checks, you can have peace of mind ensuring that you hire a tradie who will do a quality job and treat you and your property with respect.
