Approved Roofers Harrogate: International money markets are driven by two emotional – fear and greed. When the markets are healthy and there’s money to be made, greed predominates. But when the markets wobble, fear takes over and the markets may contract.
Interestingly these two emotions also drive the consumer market. Greed is what motivates scammers, criminals and rogue traders; and fear is the predominating consumer feeling when it comes to giving work to doorstep traders. And with good reason. We have been trained to fear traders by media coverage of the horror stories experienced by consumers at the hands of rogue traders.
But of course not all traders are rogues. Most traders are decent, honourable people who just want to do an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.
Here at the Approved Trader Directory we are all about creating a link between decent traders and their customers. We want consumers to find a trader they can trust. And we want traders to be able to prove to prospective customers that they are trustworthy and above board.
By agreeing to be screened for inclusion in the Approved Trader Directory, traders are demonstrating their honesty and integrity. Our screening process is basic but significant: in exchange for a small fee we check out the trader’s identity, his fitness to practice his trade, and his credit profile. If the business doesn’t pass our vetting procedure, then we give the traders their money back and we don’t include them.
So when you want to find a trader you can trust, check them out with us. It will cost you nothing – the phone call is free, or you can go online. If you find your trader in our Directory, you’ll know this is not just a greedy sod out to rob your or do a botched job, but a genuine trader with genuine qualifications, a genuine address and proven insurance.
So when a customer finds you in our Directory, she will know that you are a real person with a traceable background, and not a rogue trader with a false identity and a fake address.
