Who we are

Trade Checka is part of Moved Forward Ltd; we created this site because many of our customers approached us for background checks of potential contractors for projects. The first question we asked ourselves “what type of check is needed to assess a business ability of a Trades Person and contractor who is pricing work is an opportunity to assess tradespeople and contractors as good business people”.


Media can contact Trade Checka via our email address contact@tradechecka.co.nz with questions, and we will reply to their inquiry during regular business hours in New Zealand.

We do not talk about our customer’s personal experiences and stories unless they consent to us sharing their experience on the media and on social media.


We do use cookies and tracking to monitor the end-user experience. This is simply to help us develop and improve the website; we also used cookies and monitoring to track our end-users interactions with other websites and other search advertising results.
