Checkatrade partners with Toolstation to offer new members gift cards worth up to £200

Checkatrade, the UK online trade directory, which connects tradespeople with homeowners, has partnered with Toolstation for the first time to launch an offer for new members.

Trades signing up for a Checkatrade membership will be eligible to claim a Toolstation gift card, with a value of up to £200 to spend in store, online or via the app. This comes as Toolstation, one of Britain’s fastest growing suppliers of tools, accessories and building supplies, celebrates its 20th year since opening for business back in 2003.

Mike Fairman, Checkatrade CEO, said: “With rising costs affecting tradespeople as well as homeowners, we’re proud to be working with Toolstation to offer new members such a warm welcome. This is just one of the many benefits of signing up to Checkatrade – with over 4.5 million job opportunities created by homeowners on Checkatrade in the last year, our platform is the ideal place for trades to expand their customer base and source new jobs.”

Chris Maggs, CRM Manager at Toolstation, also commented on the partnership: “Bringing our two brands together makes perfect sense. Checkatrade’s members are exactly the type of people who'll benefit most from Toolstation’s great depth of product range and continuing great value. The partnership means that tradespeople can receive a gift card worth up to £200 to spend on our app, online or at any of our stores.”

In addition to the sign-up benefit, which runs alongside the option of a £200 fuel card, tradespeople can also enjoy further offers and discounts from their Checkatrade membership, which could save them £470 on average each year. These include up to 10% off business mobile phone plans from EE and up to 10% off van hire from Enterprise®.

To be eligible for the Toolstation gift card, tradespeople must meet Checkatrade’s member criteria, which includes passing a bespoke vetting process and possessing valid public liability insurance.
