Construction line membership

Recommended Posts

Is it worthwhile joining construction line, and if so is it easy enough ? A company we do a little work for has made it a requirement to join. Just wandering if it’s worth all the hassle.

At what level have they asked you to join at? At basic level it’s easy enough, various bits of paper and documentation to email off, at gold level which is what most what it’s a lot more involved with signed policy documents needed for a load of stuff, basically unless you do a lot of work for them and good payers I wouldn’t bother.

It has to be to a minimum of silver. Am just trying to weigh up the pros and cons at the moment. Thank you for your response.

Tell them to whistle if they only give you a little work, any decent company is snowed under. 
 

I had the same thing, told them I didn’t need their work and they were ringing me up desperate for an emergency job the next week, accreditation didn’t matter 🙄

 

Its a box ticking exercise simply to line the pockets of parasites.

Silver might not be too bad, I was gold for 5 years at £700 a year, like dobbin said, there are ways round it when it suits them! 

one of my commercial client went to Gold this year and I binned it last year, told them I aint bothered as there shit payers and want everything on the cheap, if your going to get some accreditation go for something like CHAS, SMAS or safe contractor, they will cover a much better and broader spectrum.
