This site is useful for checking to see if a company is registered and it will it many cases only show their "activit principle".


However it is not truly representative, as many French companies have secondary activites. The only true way to check is to ask to see the artisans carte d'identification issued by their local Chambre des Metiers. This is usually a white card with green writing and shows siret number and trades licensed to carry out. You could also ask to see insurance documents which will show the trades he/she are insured for.
