In my area Barry the council have a safe trading scheme, I always use this as a starting point when looking for tradespeople. it comes under

We were approached by this company to join for a fee, we declined. We are with as before you are accepted you have to supply references from previous customers and they do contact them.  Also they don't charge a fee to the tradesperson .

AUNTYPOLL, there is a yearly fee with TrustATrader.

"Is there a charge for a tradesperson to join

Yes there is. We charge a yearly fee for membership, and this ensures that as a tradesperson, you know that we will do everything to help you; from sorting out your insurance to uploading photographs to your profile. We are here to provide the consumers with your valuable skills and experience, and of course that's called advertising!"

Thanks all

THECORBYLOON  Thanks, l thought it was we were with but we get all our work from local sources and I have'nt been on that site for ages, they mayhave changed their T&C's. I think when looking for tradespeople you must ask locally. Cowboy tradesmen tend to work away from home not on their doorsteps.
