Approved Roofers Nuneaton: The Approved Trader Directory is an independent identity screening service aimed at protecting consumers while supporting businesses in their attempts to show that they are a bona fide business and not a rogue trader.
It’s not a complicated trader scheme but a simple and cheap alternative that does exactly what it says on the tin: for a small fee it verifies the identity and credentials of you the trader so that you can be easily checked out by prospective customers.
So honest, trustworthy traders like you, people who are carrying on their business in an above-board way, have nothing to fear and everything to gain from having a listing in our Directory. It costs under £30 for a six month listing, or a mere £7 a month. But the benefits in reassurance and confidence to your customers is priceless.
With your agreement we check you out in three main ways.
The first set of checks relates to your actual identity. Are you who you claim to be? In order to verify your identity we look for photo ID as well as recent utility bills relating either to your business or domestic life showing proof of address. And in addition we do a search for you on the electoral roll.
The second set of checks relates to your finances. We check you out for bankruptcy both business and professional. The fact of bankruptcy in your past may not be a reason for excluding you from the Directory. It all depends on the nature of the bankruptcy and if it is discharged.
Finally we make sure that you have all of the necessary insurance, certificates, membership of trader associations, and licenses that you need in order to carry out your business legitimately.
When we are satisfied that you have a real business in good financial health, then we give you a listing in the Directory and prospective customers can find you there.
It couldn’t be simpler – a small service with a big impact on your business.
