Before hiring tradies, we recommend that you check their licence to make sure it is current, covers the actual business you are dealing with, and is appropriate for the value and type of work you require. Licences can expire/become invalid for many reasons.
Be mindful that some tradies may have multiple employees and subcontractors. It’s important that you check the licence of all tradies who carry out work on your job.
As a condition of use of TRADE-WORX you agree that you are at least 18 years of age.
