Electricians Tamworth: Christmas is on its way and with it the return of absent family members, parties for friends and neighbours, not to mention that all important visit from Santa Claus. It’s a busy time of year. As well as buying presents and food, you want your home to look its best so homeowners across the country are sprucing things up the before the Christmas rush. This means that traders of every description – painters and decorators, curtain makers, boiler servicers, tilers, carpet cleaners – are in demand.
But how can you be sure that your trader runs a legitimate business? How can you be certain that the people knocking on your door aren’t part of a gang of rogue traders out to add a little bit of Christmas cheer to their own pockets at your expense?
We all need to be on our guard to ensure that we aren’t taken in by criminals who take advantage of our longing to have our homes looking their best for Santa Claus!
Here at the Approved Trader Directory we like to think that we’re on the side of Santa’s elves! We want your Christmas to be a happy one. We want you to have the kind of Christmas cheer that will see you through the dark days of winter. What we don’t want is for you to be taken in by scammers, thieves and doorstep criminals who give you too much ‘bah humbug’ and not enough ‘ho go ho’!
So our Christmas gift to you is the same gift that we offer all year round: a simple, safe and free way to check out the trader who skates up to your door offering to do work in your house or garden.
The Approved Trader Directory checks out traders so you don’t have to. We do financial, professional and identity screening before listing them in the Directory. So before you choose a trader, choose the Approved Trader Directory first. Go online or call us for free on 0800 888 6667. If your trader is registered with us, you will know that the business checks out. If not, invite them to register before you employ them. It only costs them as little as £7 a month – a small price to pay for adding to the Christmas cheer of their customers.
