Businesses and Trades: Gaining National Accreditation – Which? TRUSTED TRADERS

Businesses and Trades: Gaining National Accreditation – Which? TRUSTED TRADERS

The Which? Consumer Association is a registered British founded charity, first established in 1957.

The company enlists the help of over 550,000 subscribers. These members help to review and assess the safety, proficiency and overall quality of a range of products, services and business trades.

For those in the construction and interior design trades, the companies that invest their time to seek and attain the Which? seal of approval will have a great reputation across the trade industry. The process to become Which? approved entails through assessment of a business’ service from start to finish.

Following the scary focus on less than adequate quality tradesmen being named and shamed on voyeuristic TV programs such as Rogue Traders and BBC Watchdog.  While they may to offer better deals, unregulated trades undercut other competition in terms of price, the less qualified a service-person or business appears, the more likely you won’t be covered in terms of insurance, quality assurance and after-care. The instantaneous upload of bad service is also a tool used on Twitter and Facebook, giving back control to otherwise helpless homeowners that have ultimately been taken for a proverbial ride for a substandard service.

Home-owners are beginning to be more thorough, with a growing amount of those researching online review sites such as ‘Check a Trade’ and checking for Which? accreditation.

Taking a specialist trade such as GJP Floor Sanding, with branches in Brighton and more recently, London, much of their trade will depend on exceptional online reviews, testimonials and word of mouth. This fashionable yet financially viable way to increase a home selling value via the restoration of wooden floors is an ever-popular service that many are deciding to opt for, paying to have it carried out by professionals.
