Approved Roofers Dewsbury: Recent research into the so-called moral decline in the UK showed that people still value the old fashioned qualities of civic responsibility, respect for one’s neighbours and honesty with benefit cheats being widely despised and condemned. We may have a more relaxed attitude to the use of drugs and to sexual morality, but the old values are still important to us as a nation.
Here at the Approved Trader Directory, those values are important to us too. We are concerned about the wellbeing of consumers and we would like to see traders and craftspeople flourishing and thriving in the community.
That’s why we came up with the idea of the Directory. It creates a link between traders and their customers, helping consumers to find traders who are exactly who they claim to be. They aren’t cheats, they aren’t criminals, they are upfront craftsmen and women, legitimate traders, and bona fide businesses who want to make an honest profit.
We are a unique trader screening service. We do the basic consumer checks that every conscientious customer would like to see. When a trader applies to us for inclusion in the Directory our screening process includes the following:
Financial checks that include screening for personal and business bankruptcy as well as references from accountants or HMRC; Found on the voters roll
Identity checks that require them to provide us with one form of photo ID, as well as two recent utility bills pertaining either to the business or the home address of the trader;
Proof of public liability insurance, licenses and membership of the relevant trade association.
So next time you are considering a trader but are hesitating in case the business is bogus, call us first on 0800 888 6667 or go online to our website. When you find your trader there, you’ll know that the business checks out as a real business. Simple, easy and your promise of peace of mind.
