Lancashire County Council Safe Trader Scheme
The Safe Trader Scheme is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this year. The Scheme is operated by Lancashire County Council Trading Standards Service to assist residents of Lancashire to find reputable local traders for property repairs, home improvements, gardening services, mobility aids and other services around the home.
Traders on the Scheme have all demonstrated their commitment to fair and honest trading by signing up to the Scheme’s Code of Practice, and have agreed to work with Trading Standards should any dispute arise.
You can search for a local registered trader via the Safe Trader website
www.safetrader.org.uk or by phone on 0303 333 1111. All you need to provide are your postcode and the type of trade you are looking for and a list of relevant businesses will be produced in an order relevant to your postcode. If searching via the website you can compare businesses by checking out their profile pages and the customer reviews they have received.
If you do have any work carried out please leave feedback for the trader on the website. This will assist both the Scheme and will help businesses to ensure that they are providing the best service possible to their customers.
