Scheme protects consumers against rogue traders

30 days ago

A new scheme has been launched in Carmarthenshire to protect consumers from rogue traders.

Buy With Confidence is an approved trader scheme which has been set up to wipe out dishonest businesses and assist householders to find reputable local business.

It is run by Carmarthenshire’s trading standards team and replaces the former Registered Traders Scheme.

Buy With Confidence also provides businesses with recognition of good practice and consumers with confidence with whom they are dealing.

All the businesses listed on the website have been vetted and approved by Trading Standards.

The council’s executive board member for public protection, Cllr Philip Hughes said: “To be approved onto the scheme traders have to go through a stringent vetting process which gives consumers peace of mind that traders operate in a legal, honest and fair way. I hope as many traders and local businesses sign up to this scheme to reassure people that they are the best trader for the job.”
