Approved Builders Scunthorpe: Choosing a trader can be like navigating a minefield!
Take for example the average consumer. You have a job that needs doing in your home or business – maybe you need a simple plumbing job or perhaps it’s a more extensive renovation. Maybe you need to choose a qualified accountant or you need a landscape gardener. Whatever the service you require, it’s hard to know how to locate a reputable trader.
Let’s face it: you’re not only looking for value for money. You’re looking also for the security of knowing that the business you are considering is legitimate. You want reassurance and to be confident that the trader you choose is qualified to do your job and that the business will still be around to pick up the pieces if your toilet stops working or the electrics blow a fuse.
And here’s where the Approved Trader Directory comes in. Designed as a first level of consumer protection, the Directory vets traders and businesses and will only include them as an option for consumers when their identity and credentials have been verified.
Approved Trader Directory isn’t a resource for finding a trader: it’s a resource that helps you check out your trader after you have found him elsewhere. We do the checks that you would like to do yourself. We check that a trader is creditworthy, has a legitimate, traceable business address, has all the necessary certification, licenses and insurance, and has an established identity. We are in the business of verification, not marketing.
Trader verification was never more important, with fraudulent trading becoming an ever-increasing problem in society. Now in a service that is offered absolutely free of charge to the consumer, you have a way of assuring yourself that the trader you are considering is genuine. Just phone or go online to check your trader out.
Our promise to you is that if a trader doesn’t meet our standards, we won’t include him in the Directory.
