Approved Builders Sunderland: The Approved Trader Directory is the brainchild of a businessman who couldn’t bear the fact that more and more consumers were being conned out of their money by scammers and rogue traders. He set up the directory to offer a basic level of protection to vulnerable consumers, a way of at least verifying the identity and business credentials of traders.
Here’s how the Directory works: a trader approaches the Approved Trader Directory to be registered. We do the checks and investigations that every consumer needs to know. If the trader passes our checks, then they are included in the Directory. If they don’t pass, we don’t include them and their money is refunded.
In this way you the consumer can know that the trader you are considering is legitimate, a bona fide trader with a traceable address, a verifiable identify, and all the licenses and certification that are needed.
All you have to do is go online or call us on our Freephone number – 0800 888 6667. You can instantly check if your trader is the genuine article. If you don’t find your trader on the Directory, invite them to register. It won’t cost them very much, and their membership lasts for six months.
Once registered, you can employ them with confidence in their identify. You’ll know that they are who they claim to be, and that if in the future you run into any problems with the work they do for you, then you can easily track them down to their legitimate business or domestic address.
