Family Run Locksmiths In Leeds

We Are Now Members Of Checkatrade

Posted by Ben Gatenby on Wednesday, December 19, 2018 Under: Company Updates

1st Defence Locksmiths Leeds are proud to announce we are members of Checkatrade.com. After many years of trading and building up online reviews from all over the web we thought it was time to back this up with some substance. 

There are so many referrals websites out there that allow a quick business sign up with no relevant checks done. So we decided we wanted to stand out from the crowd and join a site that was stricter on who was aloud to join. Our thought process behind this was that if it was stricter around who was aloud to be part of the site then only genuine good quality companies would be members. After a lot a searching and analysing different referral sites we decided that checkatrade would be the one to offer us the most benefits and also the most reassurance for our customers.

We also found the site to be hugely informative for customers offering them maximum piece of mind that they would be getting a genuine and reliable trades person. The site is also very user friendly allowing are customers to easily find us and all the relevant information associated with our company. 

Checkatrade like most others do allow reviews but these reviews have to be verified by checkatrade in order to be published. This ensures only genuine reviews are left for business's on there website. 

In order to become a member of Checkatrade we had to go through many more checks than we've done before to become listed on other referral type websites. In fact we even had to have a representative come to our premises to have a one to one meeting. 

These Checks include 
  • Checking our limited company information 
  • Checking identification
  • Business insurance 
  • Feedback from 10 of our previous customers 
After we passed all the relevant checks we then achieved recommended , monitored and vetted status on Checkatrade. The next step was to create our own unique profile page on the website. This is a place where customers can go to see more about 1st Defence Locksmiths Leeds. You can see pictures of our previous work, see the different types of work we do and also see our customer feedback. Fell free to take a look at our profile page here 1st Defence Locksmiths Leeds 
The feedback section is a really critical part of Checkatrade. This section allows customers to rate you in 5 different areas. 

  • Reliability and timekeeping 
  • Tidiness
  • Courtesy 
  • Workmanship 
  • Invoice History
At the time of writing this post we have already built up 106 customer reviews with an overall feedback score of 9.96 out of 10. We are absolutely delighted with this score and really value and appreciated every review that's been left for us. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank everybody that has taken the time to leave us a feedback score and review. 

1st Defence Locksmiths Leeds hope to continue our membership on Checkatrade for many years to come and build up even more amazing feedback.
