Buy With Confidence
The Buy With Confidence scheme was put together by a partnership of Local Authority Trading Standards Services in response to concerns about 'rogue traders'. The scheme provides consumers with a list of businesses which have given their commitment to trading fairly.
Benefits of the scheme to your business
- reassure customers that you're trustworthy and provide good customer service
- directory listing on the Buy With Confidence website, used by the public to find dependable businesses
- a Trading Standards checkup before admission to ensure you're legally compliant
- be able to use the Buy With Confidence logo and say you're 'Trading Standards Approved'
- set yourself apart from competitors - only those good enough to pass our vetting get onto the scheme
- open to most business sectors, not just home improvement and/or the motor trade
- access to advice direct from local authority employed Trading Standards professionals
- get information about changes to the law that could affect your business
- not for profit - run by local authorities, so all fees go back into the running and promotion of the scheme
- help protect your community from rogue traders and illegitimate businesses.
