Approved Builders Ashford: Choosing a reputable trader can be difficult: What are the things you need to know before making your decision? What if the documentation or ID card you are shown is bogus? How can you be sure that the business you are dealing with is legitimate? Sometimes it feels like you have to take a leap in the dark and hope for the best.
One simple way of ensuring that some basic checks have been carried out on your trader is to see if they are registered with Approved Trader Directory.
This clever, simple register of traders gives you some basic information to help you make your decision.
In order to be included in the Directory, the trader must agree to undergo a series of checks and investigations: the staff do a credit profile, a set of identity checks to establish identity and traceability as well as professional checks on licensing, certification and insurance. These are the fundamental things you need to know before choosing a trader: is this trader legitimate, licensed and above board.
Once the trader has been approved, we at the Approved Trader Directory create a trader profile, often with links to the trader’s own website. All you the consumer have to do to check out a trader is call us or visit our website and verify that your trader is there. If there is no profile then quite simply you can invite your chosen trader to register. We won’t include any trader who doesn’t pass our checks, so within a very short space of time you can be assured that the trader you are considering is legitimate.
