Members agree to comply with strict standards and undergo a series of background checks as part of the accreditation process.
Member businesses are assessed by their own customers, through a survey system operated by Referenceline, helping other consumers make a more informed, and more confident, choice of trader.
Choosing a trader
Here is some useful advice to remember when using a trader or service provider:
Get three or four quotes as prices may vary between providers. Discuss your needs and agree what you would like them to do and what the cost will be. Remember the contract is between yourself and the provider
Some service providers from the Norfolk Trusted Trader directory may offer preferential rates for people accessing their services via the scheme, so it is always worth asking
After getting quotes always think it over, you can change your mind
If you are pleased with the service, pay any costs due and ask for a receipt. Complete the Trusted Trader feedback form and return it – your feedback will help others choose a trader in the future
Remember that others may be able to help you with arranging the services you need – for example a relative or neighbour
If you would like to apply for the scheme or recommend a trader for inclusion, we have information on how to join, including a link to the online application form.
