    Probably better to be trading standards approved. Check your local area for buy with confidence scheme.

    try your local trading standards aproved trades it doesnt cost anything apart from a police check all you need is 3 references n make sure youre paperwork/ invoice and quotations have your address on and are laid out and worded properly

    If you have it in your adverstising budget then why not give it a go. At least then you will know firsthand if it is worth renewing each year or not.


    Another one maybe worth considering is Safe contractor but myself I have never used either so can't comment if they are any good at generating extra work or not.

    Sorry everyone I have been grafting so haven't had time to look on here, I think I might give it a miss by the sounds of it, as smurf mentioned safe contractor I'm going in for that one next week but I know people that have said the paper you have to do for safe contractor is ridiculous !! But it's a must
