South Ayrshire Trusted Trader

South Ayrshire Trusted Trader Scheme is part of the Scottish wide trusted trader network.

The Trusted Trader scheme is a directory of local businesses that have been vetted by Trading Standards and Trusted Directory Services and have made a commitment to treat their customers fairly.

The Scheme is based on customer experience and customer feedback. Trade members of the scheme ask their customers after a job is completed to provide feedback on what they thought of the job and the feedback is published on an independent website.

The aims of the scheme are to:

  • increase consumer confidence
  • help protect citizens from doorstep crime
  • encourage good practice within local business
  • promote vetted local businesses
  • the ability to showcase official reviews and feedback

The fee for Trusted Trader vetted businesses is £240 incl VAT per year and for that the businesses will benefit from:

  • 12 months of Trusted Trader membership and see how it benefits your business.
  • Your business showcased with other vetted businesses from across South Ayrshire on the TrustedTrader.Scot website
  • Access to official Trusted Trader logos and marketing materials to promote your business.

South Ayrshire Council Trusted Trader scheme is Council backed and supported by Police Scotland and consumeradvice.scot
