Approved Builders Chard: Homeowners often put off getting routine household repairs or upgrading done simply because of the headache of finding a genuine tradesman who they can trust. How will they know that he is who he claims to be? How will they know if he’s insured? How will they know if he is trained to do their job and licensed to trade?
These are all questions that are increasingly asked by homeowners when you come to quote for their job. They want proof but how can you prove that you are who you say you are? It’s not easy.
So imagine if there was a service that could establish your identity and confirm your credentials that wary homeowners could use?
Well the good news is that Approved Trader Directory is just such a service. You pay us and we do the checks so that next time a home owner looks for proof of your identity, you can refer them to us!
It’s a unique answer for hassled traders. Consumers know that you will only be included on the Directory when you have undergone the normal investigation that customers themselves would undertake. We establish your identity by looking for photo ID and recent utility bills made out to your home or business address. We check your financial profile ensuring that you don’t have CCJ’s directly from an unsatisfied customer, and we check for bankruptcy that hasn’t been discharged. And we confirm that you have all the necessary certificates, licenses and insurances to carry out your stated business.
Once your name is included on the Directory just point your customers to the website to confirm that you are an Approved Trader. It couldn’t be simpler. It saves you a lot of work and it is a level of genuine protection for consumers.
