From storm and flood damaged property and garden tidy-ups to jobs around the home Derbyshire residents are being reminded to turn to the Trusted Trader scheme to find honest and reliable people to carry out the work.
Derbyshire County Council – Trusted Trader scheme, run by our trading standards team, has a database of more than 1,000 traders who have all been checked out and commit to doing a good job for a fair price.
People searching the Trusted Trader database, which is quick, easy and free to use, will find a range of traders to suit their needs and be able to see genuine reviews from previous customers. They are also able to contact our trading standards team if they experience any issues with a current Trusted Trader.
There’s a wide range of trades and services registered as Trusted Traders, from joiners, roofers, gardeners, builders, plumbers and decorators to accountants, cleaners, retailers, car dealers, physiotherapists and many more.
If people are not able to access the Trusted Trader scheme online, they can visit a county library where staff will be able to help.
Our Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Carol Hart said:
“It can be a worry when you need to have repairs done or carry out maintenance at home but you’re not sure who you can trust. Using our Trusted Trader scheme gives people peace of mind that they’ll be able to find a reliable and trustworthy tradesperson to do a good job and not fall foul of a rogue trader.”
Our information about the scheme includes advice for customers and information for traders.
