    Hi everyone I started this with the hope of producing more work for us all so that the trades on CAT use the trades on CAT and we all help each other now what we need is a list of trades in our area that we can go to when we need one. Now I know I will get told we can just do a search on CAT and I understand this however CAT needs to try and network the trades better which will make CAT a bigger player on the job front. I did ask this from a call I had with someone from CAT but they seem to be more interested in pushing the rubbish we donít need and donít want. We all work for you @Checkatrade I think it is about time you start working for us in return stop changing things and find out what your trades need. You will probably disregard this as I am not renewing with CAT next month but if you want the trades to stay and have the reputation you had years ago then you should take a look at what you have changed and work out where it went wrong.

    Hey @KS Scaffolding Thank you for your post and I love that you started these new trade network threads.
    They certainly can work well and you can help eachother get work.

    What I was thinking was a list of the members who say they'd complete work in this area in the Original post you've done?

    That way, anyone who's landed on this post doesnt need to scroll through the comments first!? What do you think?

    thanks
    Lauren

    Thatís a good idea @Lauren @Boilermedic itís just a-shame that I will not be here to see it. However if Checkatrade changes and starts to be the company they where years ago they I will be back but till then I wish you all the best of luck with this and I hope you make it work the way that I wished it would. We are still about to any trades that need scaffolding in and around east Anglia we will beat any realistic quotation and everything is tagged and handed over as per the law.
