Artisan Central was created to fill a gap in the market for an online directory of pre-checked, highly skilled artisans working throughout France – artisans you can trust.
When moving to a new country or area, it can be impossible to distinguish between legally registered, highly skilled artisans and the many rogue traders operating throughout France. Well-meaning recommendations from friends or neighbours can often lead to serious financial consequences for home owners.
We offer membership to artisans who pride themselves on delivering excellent customer service and the highest quality of workmanship. Our members are proud to share their customer reviews with you, to represent Artisan Central’s principles of quality, skill and professionalism, and to uphold the Artisan Central Code of Practice.
On each member’s profile, you will find a SIRET number, business summary, full contact information, the range of services on offer, insurance details, qualifications and experience, a gallery of work, recent customer reviews, and much more.
The website’s advanced search function enables you to quickly and easily find all the pre-checked artisans working within your area. If you choose to work with one of our members, please let them know you found them through Artisan Central and remember to leave a customer review by following the link on the artisan’s profile page.
For more details about how Artisan Central works, what pre-membership checks are made, questions about business insurance, the trades we represent, how reviews are handled and a copy of the Code of Practice, read the Frequently Asked Questions – Customers.
While Artisan Central undertakes pre-membership checks on all its members, our members run their own independent businesses and are solely and legally responsible for the quality of their work, the professional way in which they run their business, and the accuracy of their profile on the website – therefore Artisan Central cannot guarantee a member’s work. The selection or use of any Artisan Central member is made entirely by you and it is your obligation to verify independently such matters from primary sources of information and by taking specific professional advice. You must not rely on the content or associated service of this website to do this for you. You can find general guidance on choosing and working with an artisan here: Working with Artisans.
