Has the new season has got you thinking about home improvements? Do you need to get in touch with a reliable trader for your business?
Find a trusted local trader for free using the Which? Trusted Traders scheme, in partnership with Hertfordshire Trading Standards.
Traders on the scheme undergo an assessment by Which? and Hertfordshire trading standards professionals - including face-to-face interviews, financial checks, and even Trading Standards checks, in order to become endorsed, so you can be sure you’re hiring someone reliable.
While many people make a start on home improvements in the spring and summer months, our Trading Standards team regularly sees an increase in reports of rogue traders at this time of year. Unreliable traders take advantage of the longer days and nicer weather to prey on vulnerable people.
It can be difficult to know exactly who you can trust.
We have some simple advice:
