MBK are very proud to be a Checkatrade member.
In all the years I have been in business I have been approached by many different forms of Consumer and trade membership which have offered lots of promise but failed to actually provide the real needs of the consumer. I am confident that my company and the companies I recommend provide a really good service and my intention has always been to provide additional services that can reduce any concerns that potential clients may have. The reason that I joined Checkatrade was that they are one of the few Consumer associations that actually do work for the consumer and all the reviews are from the consumers and the individual traders have no control over those comments. I am further convinced that is the one review site to be a part of following the partnership between them and Kent County Council Trading Standards, with a large number of Kent members receiving KCC Trading Standards approved status. They felt confident enough that out of all the ‘Trader Schemes’ that are available to consumers that Checkatrade were the best for the consumers. See what KCC said about them in May 2014;
‘Following in-depth research and a review of fair trader schemes in Kent, KCC Trading Standards is pleased to announce a partnership with Checkatrade. Checkatrade, like KCC, are committed to supporting legitimate businesses, stopping rogue traders and protecting consumers. Kent County Council is confident that this partnership will offer the best fair trader scheme for Kent consumers and traders. Businesses will benefit from marketing, combined with the sought after ‘Trading Standards approved’ status, which offers consumers the reassurance they require when looking for local tradesmen.’
