Being vetted and assessed by a Local Authority Trading StandardsService helps ensure that we operate in a legal, honest, and fair way. That our service is confident enough for them to award us the status of ‘Buy With Confidence – Trading Standards Approved’. (We are already SSAIB approved but would like this to run alongside it strengthening our credibility and integrity).

We are alleging the following that our time with “Checkatrade” has come to an end due to the fact not only does it have a high pricing structure, but also its now a marketing company, we also feel it does not and cannot compete with a      Local Authority Trading Standards Service.

When making purchasing decisions it can be difficult to know who to trust. Rogue traders and dodgy salesmen con millions of pounds from British consumers every year, while some other business’s ignorance of the law means their customers’ legal rights aren’t respected. That’s why a partnership of Local Authority Trading Standards Services up and down the country - from Cornwall to Argyll & Bute - works together on the Buy With Confidence Scheme. Based on their experiences of the problems consumers face and their expert knowledge of how to spot problem businesses, these Trading Standards Services have created an extensive vetting and monitoring procedure that all businesses seeking Buy With Confidence membership must go through. No business can legally claim Buy With Confidence – Trading Standards Approved status until they have satisfied all these assessments and had their membership signed off by a Trading Standards service. These checks include Credit & finances Trading History, including our complaints history, Trading Standards database checks, an on-premises inspection by a qualified Trading Standards Professional, Criminal records (DBS) check (if they work in or around people’s homes) and Customer references.
