Approved Plumbers Coventry: If you’re looking for advertising, go to a newspaper or Google. If you’re looking for a phone number, go to the phone book. If you’re looking for a trader or approved plumbers in Coventry go to the Approved Trader Directory. If you locate your trader there, then you can be assured that the trader is legitimate. If the trader isn’t there, ask them to register. It will cost them less than £40 for a six months membership but it is worth far more than money to their customers who will be reassured and relieved to know that the trader they are considering is a bona fide trader and not a conman or a scammer.
Nowadays it’s not easy for a consumer to make a decision about a trader. How do you know that the trader is qualified? How can you be certain that the address on the official headed notepaper is an actual address? Are those qualifications real, or is the trader a conman with no qualifications and no license to trade?
The Approved Trader Directory was set up as a first level of consumer protection, to answer some of those questions for you. We do the entry level checks that you wish you could do yourself.
Now you no longer have to take a leap of faith in picking a trader – instead you can check them out with us by making a simple phone call to 0800 888 6667 or by checking the Directory online. An entry in the Directory is your reassurance that the trader you are considering has a bona fide business, a proven address and a true identity verified by us.
Here’s how it works. When a trader asks to be included in the Directory we screen them by checking their identity, their credit rating and their professional documentation and insurance. If they can be verified, then we give them a listing in the Directory. If they don’t check out, then we give them their money back and wave them goodbye.
So when you call us or visit our website to check out the trader you considering, you can be sure that they have satisfied our basic requirements. It costs you nothing to check them out but it gives you priceless peace of mind when you find them listed.
And what if they’re not listed? The answer is simple: ask them to register. It will benefit their business in the long run by offering reassurance to you and all the other customers who come after you.
