Trading Experiences

Our trading experiences are sourced from our 2500 members, all trading in and around the construction industry. Our members supply us with, and we proactively gather, up to the minute detailed information of how their customers are paying them.

Our trading experiences will tell you what to expect when opening an account to a new customer. 

  • Will they pay on time?
  • Do they pay but are generally slow and need a push?
  • Do they raise a lot of disputes?
  • Will you be likely to have to take further action to recover any monies owed?
  • Are they approaching you because a competitor has them on stop?
  • Have they recently bounced cheques on other suppliers? 

It’s this kind of invaluable information you need to know before extending credit.  Can you afford not to be armed with our insider intelligence?

Below is an example of the kind of trading experiences you can expect to find on our credit reports.  Where we have received more than one experience from the same member, you will see a grey arrow which when clicked allows you to see that members previous experiences with a particular subject.
