Which Trusted Traders
As you know, Which? Trusted Traders and HETAS are two not for profit organisations that have a longstanding relationship. The partnership was designed to raise the profile of reputable HETAS installers by further endorsing your accreditation with HETAS.
Which? Trusted Traders fills an important gap in the market. A completely free-to-use service for all consumers, not just our members, Which? Trusted Traders exists to help people
find local traders they can depend on. At the same time, it gives trustworthy traders the recognition they deserve. While there are already a number of trader schemes in the marketplace, none can provide what Which? Trusted Traders provides – an endorsement from the UK’s leading independent consumer organisation.
When you’re endorsed by Which? you know it means something.
And Which? Trusted Traders is no different. Our trading standards professionals carefully assess every applicant to ensure they meet our high standards and look at the consumer element of your business. The assessment has been referred to as a ‘Health check’ and we will provide valuable advice on your paperwork, insurance (you’d be surprised how many traders are not covered for elements of their work) and ensure that your consumer facing element is fully compliant with best practice and consumer law.
“We know Which? has a great reputation and are a trusted well known company. Customers like to be put at ease with knowing necessary checks have been made on traders and feel more comfortable being able to view trusted feedback before they choose to go ahead. We feel that by being a Which? Trusted trader member we have made it easier for customers to secure work with us and feel at ease using us as a company.”
