RedFish tradesman verification ranking

RedFish aims to connect customers with quality tradesmen and as such offers a clear way for tradesmen to display their quality and professionalism on their profile pages on the website. Tradesmen do this by means of attaining a Bronze, Silver or Gold ranking by supplying various company details to RedFish for verification. Customers are likely to favour a higher a ranking as this means that RedFish has checked the tradesman’s documentation and/or contacted previous customers for feedback. As such this is a very useful marketing tool and an important step in helping to secure employment through RedFish.

The table below indicates the requirements for tradesmen wishing to attain RedFish ranking. An unknown rank indicates a new tradesman who has not yet been verified. Bronze verification level indicates that the tradesman has supplied RedFish with company documents. Silver status indicates that the tradesman has supplied RedFish with company documents and provided customer references from recently completed work. Gold is the highest achievable rank, which includes Bronze information, Silver reference checks and an average customer rating of 8+ on the RedFish website.
