Approved Roofers Nottingham: A recent study into the impact of doorstep crime on older folk showed that their health declines much more rapidly than non victims of a similar age. And that’s just one reason for making sure to protect yourself from doorstep crime: you have more to lose than mere money. Your health is at risk as well.
Here at the Approved Trader Directory we are justifiably angry that our fellow citizens are falling prey to unscrupulous rogue traders whose one aim in life is to separate consumers from their money, giving nothing in return except a decline in health and in many cases severe post traumatic stress.
We set up the Directory as a first and basic level of consumer protection. It’s not complicated, and best of all it’s 100% free to consumers.
When a would-be trader presents at your door, all you have to do is hold up your hand, slow down the sales pitch, and tell them to wait outside the door while you check them out. Then call us for free on 0800 888 6667. If they are registered with us then you’ll know that the caller at your door is no scammer, but a legitimate trader carrying out a legitimate business.
If the person at your door isn’t listed in the Approved Trader Directory it doesn’t necessarily mean that you dealing with a rogue trader. But to be on the safe side ask the trader to register with us first before you think about hiring them. It won’t cost the trader much – less than £1 a week for a year’s membership – but it’s value to you in terms of peace of mind is priceless.
When a trader is registered with us you will know that we have screened them professionally, financially and personally and have satisfied ourselves that they have a real identity and not a bogus one; that they are credit-worthy and that they have certification, insurance and licenses to do your work.
