|Author: Charlotte Wilson, Cambs CC||Published: 1st May 2012 16:22|
At Cambridgeshire Trading Standards we have just introduced a new approved trader scheme, ‘Buy with Confidence'. The scheme is designed to provide Cambridgeshire residents with a choice of traders, all of which have demonstrated a commitment to providing a high quality service and have been thoroughly checked by us.
To expand our list of current members we are currently undertaking a recruitment drive. If you are, or know of, a reliable trader in Cambridgeshire we want to hear from you!
How does a business join the scheme?
You can access further information and application forms at http://www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk/. Alternatively you can ring Cambridgeshire Direct on 0345 0455206 to be sent an information pack.
Nominating a trader to join the scheme
If you know a trader that you would recommend, you can nominate them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling Cambridgeshire Direct on 0345 0455206. We will do the rest.
How to use the scheme:
There are a number of ways you can find traders on the scheme:
- Visit file:///C:/WINNT/IE/TempInt/fy307/OLK100A/www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk.
- Telephone the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 08454 040506.
- Visit your local library where staff can look up traders for you.
Our checking procedure ensures the quality of our members but does not provide a price guarantee. We recommend that you still get three quotes to ensure you are happy with the price.
To find out more about the scheme, visit http://www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk/ or contact Cambridgeshire Direct.
