Trusted Trader

The total value of Home Improvement reviews passes £1 million

Tuesday, 1st December 2015

The Dumfries and Galloway Trusted Trader scheme has been in operation for less than a year, but the home improvement reviews already total over £1 million.

The main objective of the Trusted Trader scheme is to protect consumers by helping them make a more informed choice when they are looking for a business.  This milestone of £1 million is important because it shows that the scheme is succeeding in signing up successful businesses with loyal customers who tell us that they are very happy with the work, service and value they receive.

A third of all customers tell us that they have known the business for 5 years or more, which is another indication that the scheme is attracting the right kind of businesses.
