HIA Tradepass

Tradepass streamlines the builder/contractor relationship by compiling all contractor documents in one place.

Tradepass is a platform that manages licenses

Tradepass is a clever contractor management tool that makes it easy for contractors to show they have all the business information and registrations they need to provide to a builder. That, in turn, makes it easy for builders to hire them.

If you’re a contractor and you’re registered with Tradepass, you can promote your  Tradepass status and grow your business. If you’re a builder, Tradepass can help you save time and money by verifying contractors’ business compliance on your behalf.

Explore HIA Tradepass

Tradepass has been developed by HIA specifically to suit the needs of residential builders and contractors.
Whether you’re a builder (you have contractors working for you) or you’re a contractor.

HIA Tradepass saves time for builder businesses and helps to minimise risk exposure. More than just a software system, HIA’s inclusive verification service also collects and authenticates contractors’ documents and business details. A lesser known feature is that builders can search for compliant Tradepass contractors through the portal by trade or region. Peggy says this would be particularly useful for builders in big markets.

Kristy reveals that the time saved for the team has been the biggest help to Bold Living: ‘The man hours saved by not having to continually chase subcontractors, and advise and explain to them what is required, is a real advantage. [Plus] being able to review all our subcontractors in a one-stop-shop, and target only those who have expired documents, is really helpful... [we strive] to always have all of our subcontractors set up in Tradepass prior to commencing work.
