Many consumers find it difficult to find a trader they can rely upon when they need building or repair work carried out upon their homes. Tales of rogue contractors, be they builders, plumbers, or electricians, cause many people to worry about being ripped off. At the same time, reputable trade people that take pride in doing a fair job at a fair price deserve to be seen as different.
The Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin Trader Register has been set up for the benefit of both local consumers and businesses across the county. It aims to reassure consumers, providing advice and information on employing a trader and working together to get things right first time. Businesses registered with the scheme have all demonstrated their commitment to fair and honest trading practices and delivering good customer service.
The Register covers all aspects of home improvement and repair work, including building, carpentry, external property repairs, decorating and home security. In choosing a trader from the Register, and following our simple advice to getting it right first time, consumers can make an important step to find a reliable trader to work upon their home or garden.
Additional help and support with home improvement, building, repair or adaptation work is available from local Home Improvement Agencies to those people that meet certain eligibility criteria. The agencies can help supervise work, assist with accessing grants and loans, or offer a handyperson service. For further information on additional services available and eligibility criteria, please contact the Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin Trading Standards Trader Register team on
