Locks, Alarms and Security rank high for Consumers Searching for Trades

Locks, alarms and security are among the top 10 services consumers search for according to Checkatrade, the leading online trade directory with 30,000 trade members and 1.5million consumer searches on its site every month.

The online platform, which is sponsoring The London Homebuilding & Renovating Show (21-23 September 2018 at ExCeL), is offering a new rapid response trade service called Checkatrade Now. 

The 24/7 on demand emergency service is currently being trialled in Hampshire before a national roll-out and will assist locks, alarms and security businesses with raising their profile, building their reputations and generating incremental work. Checkatrade Now will also assist the 12 million plus people who trust Checkatrade to help them find a reputable tradesperson.

Traders attending the upcoming event can save over 28 per cent on their monthly membership price when they sign up to Checkatrade.

Richard Harpin, CEO and founder of Homeserve, which owns Checkatrade, will be taking part in The London Homebuilding & Renovating Show on 24 September to talk to industry professionals about how Checkatrade can help them grow their businesses.

Richard says, 
“We’re constantly looking for ways to help our members and we believe that Checkatrade Now will provide an additional stream of opportunities by offering a quick, simple and effective method to gain more work and help those customers in need of an urgent but professionally done job.”

Nick Noble, commercial & events director at Future PLC, comments, 
“Our commitment is always to ensure that our trade exhibitors gain maximum value from our Homebuilding & Renovating Show and Checkatrade’s passion for helping the trades grow their businesses aligns perfectly with our objectives.
“We’re confident Checkatrade’s sponsorship of the show and Richard’s talk will reinforce to consumers why Checkatrade has grown to the huge influential platform it is today and reassure the tradespeople from the wide range of sectors exhibiting at and visiting the show that it is fully committed to helping them generate and win more work.”

The Homebuilding & Renovating Show’s portfolio consists of seven shows this year, covering key venues including Birmingham, London, Harrogate, Glasgow, Surrey, Somerset, Edinburgh, and their nearby affluent areas. 

In addition to these locations, the event organisers are planning the brand’s expansion by launching another exhibition at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre in January 2019.
