Safer Cornwall – Buy with Confidence

15 July 2020 Posted by

When making a new purchase or letting a tradesperson into your home it’s important to feel safe and not pressured into work being completed before you have time to consider or obtain a different quote.

Unfortunately, in difficult and uncertain times rogue traders and scammers find opportunities. Now, more than ever it is important for us all to find and use a trader we can trust, to provide a service which is legal, honest and fair.

‘Buy with Confidence’ is a national approved trader scheme run independently by local authority Trading Standards departments.

Cornwall Council’s Trading Standards team have approved and thoroughly audited a wide range of professional businesses in various trade sectors. Those working in and around people’s homes will also be criminal record checked. As we start to get back to some sort of normality, don’t forget to look for the Trading Standards sign of approval whether buying a new car or having some home improvements or repairs completed and support those who’ve publicly committed to operating legally and fairly.
