In recent years, a mini media industry of shows that expose exploitative tradespeople has evolved. Watchdog is probably their progenitor, but shows such as Don't Get Done Get Dom and Rogue Traders now occupy a significant part of the daytime schedule. Their themes are all the same: there are unscrupulous tradespeople out there who will lie and cheat to get their hands on your money and if you don’t take precautions, you may get stiffed. But, how do you tell the good tradespeople from those who offer poor services? One way is to check whether they are a Norfolk Trusted Trader.
What is Norfolk Trusted Trader?
Norfolk Trusted Trader is a scheme set up and operated by Norfolk County Council to help home and business owners choose reputable companies to carry out work and provide services.
How Does it Work?
Norfolk Trusted Trader is essentially a directory of businesses that adhere to strict standards. Checking whether a local business is in the Norfolk Trusted Trader scheme before you employ their services is a way of checking that they typically supply a good service at a fair price.
Who Can be a Member?
Any business can be accredited a Norfolk Trusted Trader provided they are prepared to submit to the background checks and adhere to strict standards. If a company shies away from this scrutiny, you should think twice before inviting them to provide a service in your home.
