Approved Roofers In Bath: Mary is a widow, living alone on a small fixed income and owner of her own little house. In the past her husband took care of repairs and servicing, either doing it himself or negotiating with the trades people who came to clean the gutters or service the boiler. With no family to call on nowadays, when something goes wrong in Mary’s house she has to rely on a trader to fix it for her and has had to learn to do her own negotiations. Sometimes things go wrong, like the time a nice red van pulled up to her door and a smooth talking man offered to clean her gutters, quoting a price she could afford. She agreed, and he asked to borrow a bucket and looked for the money up front. Reassured by the fact that he wanted a bucket, she paid over her cash and next time she looked out the window the van had disappeared along with her bucket and the money she had paid to have her gutters cleaned.
Stories like this make us very annoyed, here at the Approved Trader Directory. If only Mary had known about our service, she could have checked the trader out with us first before handing over her bucket and her cash. The phone call to us is free, and the Directory offers reassurance to customers before they part with their money.
We screen traders professionally and financially and only when we are satisfied as to their identity and bona fides will we include them in the Directory. It’s a simple but effective service, a first but essential level of consumer protection.
So next time that little red van pulls up outside your door, exercise caution. Call us on 0800 888 6667 before you employ that trader. It will only take a minute for you to check that person out and it could save you hours of regret, mourning the money that has been stolen from you by yet another rogue trader.
