Who are Buy With Confidence?
Recommended by Citizens Advice
This scheme was in response to increasing concerns from consumers regarding cowboy traders. It was set up initially in 1999 by Hampshire Trading Standards.
There are now over 4000 approved local businesses which have been vetted, approved and are continuously monitored by Trading Standards across the UK.
This is to ensure they operate in a legal & honest way.
A person from the local Trading Standards Team visits each potential member and every business is subject to a number of checks. They are approved, only if they successfully pass.
It’s run by councils across the country and has a proven track record, for over 20 years, of making life easier for consumers.
They are also 100% independent.
