Approved Plumbers Birmingham: Q. When is a bargain not a bargain? A. When it’s a competitive but bogus price quoted by a rogue trader!
Sometimes the rock bottom price quoted for your home improvement job isn’t a bargain at all. Instead it’s a scam, a sham price quoted by a conman trying to persuade you to part with your money upfront for a job that sadly will never get done. Instead that bargain trader will disappear into the sunset with your hard earned cash. The conman is laughing all the way to the bank and you are left with your work not even started and without the cash to get it done by somebody else.
This is a scenario that repeats itself up and down the country as rogue traders and cowboy builders capitalise on the growing trend for home improvements.
Here at the Approved Trader Directory we despise scammers and doorstep criminals. We are appalled by the growth in doorstep crime and we are doing everything in our power to combat it by helping consumers to make informed choices.
We offer consumers a golden opportunity to check out a trader before signing on the dotted line. It’s free to consumers, and it’s a profoundly effective mechanism for ensuring that the trader looking to do business with you runs a bona fide company.
All you have to do is phone us at 0800 888 6667 or check out our website. Give us the name of your trader, or type in the trader details, and if the business is listed it can be verified for you within minutes.
If the trader is not listed, then it’s in your best interests to ask that person to register before you make a final decision. Registration will cost you nothing, and will only cost the trader a few pounds. Within a very short space of time that trader will have been checked out by us. If it’s a legitimate business, a listing will be granted and you can go ahead and employ your trader knowing that the business has satisfied our requirements. We will have checked the trader for identity, credit worthiness and professional certification, licenses and insurance.
