How to Avoid the Rip-off Trader!

Buy With Confidence – Approved Trader Scheme.

Tameside Trading Standards’ Buy with Confidence approved trader scheme supports legitimate businesses and protects residents from rogue traders. It has more than 200 members, making it a comprehensive directory of reliable, trusted traders. All are independently checked by staff from Trading Standards for compliance with the letter and spirit of the law. 

Buy with Confidence puts consumers in touch with approved traders who have agreed to provide a trustworthy, high standard of customer service. The scheme offers peace of mind, particularly to older and vulnerable consumers who need to know who they can trust so that they do not become victims in their own homes.

This is the logo to look out for. Members carry it on their paperwork and vehicles.
