Which? Trusted traders is an endorsement scheme run by Which? That aims to distinguish reputable traders. Traders have to pass a assessment process carried out by Which? Trading standard professionals. This means not just any Tom, Dick or Harry can become endorsed. There is a rigorous assessment process, which includes;

Credit report– This validates the financial health of a business who applies to be assessed.

Customer Satisfaction- The endorsement team will check a selection of customer references, at random, from 10 domestic customer details.

Business Procedures- A thorough examination of business and administrative procedures to ensure that businesses have consumer interests in mind.

Interview and assessment- The standard assessment includes a face to face visit and interview carried out by a Which? trading standards professional to fully understand all aspects of how the applicant runs their business.

Report– Businesses receive a report of the assessment, providing valuable feedback from our experienced assessors to ensure that they meet our high standards before they are allowed to join the scheme.

Endorsed trader– Having passed all these checks, the trader is now able to choose to join the scheme, agreeing to abide by the terms and conditions, code of conduct and pay the membership fees. They can now show their customers that they are an endorsed Which? Trusted trader.

The process is lengthy, but we are extremely proud to have made the grade for Which? Trusted Traders as not everyone makes the cut, as the assessment is rigorous. We are pleased to say that we met Which? High standards and have become a Trusted Trader.
