Service Provider Qualifications and Insurance
Tradesmen.ie believes that its custom built rating system provides Customers with a useful aid in assessing the quality, value and reliability of a Service Provider. In addition to this Tradesmen.ie believes that by the Service Provider allowing themselves to be rated, it may provide Customers with a level of confidence regarding the Service Provider's ability. Tradesmen.ie checks the validity of the mobile phone number of all Trade Professionals prior to the Service Provider using the Website or the Service. Furthermore Tradesmen.ie requires that Service Providers submit at least 5 references from previous customers before they are allowed to use the website or service. The mobile numbers of all referees are verified and Tradesmen.ie also reserves the right to verify any reference by postal verification or by phone.

Tradesmen.ie does not verify or guarantee any Service Provider's trade accreditation or registration on the Customer's behalf nor whether any such documentation is still valid.

It is the responsibility of the Customer to satisfy themselves that the Service Provider is appropriately qualified and/or has the necessary insurance cover to complete the job prior to the Service Provider commencing the job. Where a specific trade accreditation or registration is required to be held by a Service Provider for a particular job Tradesmen.ie advises the Customer to request sight of evidence of the applicable accreditation or registration from the Service Provider prior to the commencement of the job.  It is also the responsibility of the Customer to check with their insurance adviser to see what insurance is required for the job. The Customer should check that they themselves are adequately covered and/or that the Service Provider has adequate cover prior to the Service Provider commencing the job. Where insurance cover is required to be held by the Service Provider Tradesmen.ie advises that the Customer should request sight of evidence of the service provider's insurance policy. However, if the Customer does not feel competent to inspect the Service Provider's insurance policy themselves Tradesmen.ie advises that the Customer should ask their insurance adviser to inspect it for them.
