STAFFORDSHIRE AND STOKE ON TRENT TRADE REGISTER
Many consumers find it difficult to find a trader they can rely upon when they need building or repair work carried out upon their homes. Tales of rogue contractors, be they builders, plumbers, or electricians, cause many people to worry about being ripped off. At the same time, reputable trades people that take pride in doing a fair job at a fair price, deserve to be seen as different.
The Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Trader Register has been set up for the benefit of both local consumers and businesses across the county. It is not an approval scheme but it aims to reassure consumers, providing advice and information on employing a trader and working together to get things right first time.
The Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent Trader Register scheme is operated by Staffordshire County Council. The scheme provides consumers with a list of local businesses that have committed to a Code of Practice that defines the promises made by the business in delivering goods and services to you.
We check that traders are complying with certain legislation and check our databases for previous history regarding the traders.
The Register covers all aspects of home improvement and repair work, including building, carpentry, external property repairs, decorating and home security. In choosing a trader from the Register, and following our simple advice to getting it right first time, Staffordshire consumers can make an important step to find a reliable trader to work upon their home or garden.
Remember to check if the trader is using any sub-contractors for work! For example, a plumber may not be Gas Safe Registered and should therefore not be doing any gas work but they may use another trader on the job that is Gas Safe registered.
