Benefits of membership to slt

Logo of Accreditation (see customer testimonials) has built up immense credibility over the past few years, with over 8000 satisfied customers leaving positive reviews on members records. In 2007, we had a vision to build a local trusted brand name that consumers in the PE postcode district would recognise and use and we have successfully accomplished this. A copy of the logo will be supplied to you to use on your business cards, corporate stationery, website, etc., together with vinyl vehicle stickers. This logo is the local symbol of trust and quality; being part of a vetted scheme will distinguish you immediately as being trustworthy, reliable and a provider of quality work.

Web Profile Page

Your web profile page on will list your contact details, the range of services you offer, your credentials, genuine reviews, a full gallery area to upload your photos or images - you can even include a video clip as a way of introducing yourself to potential customers. If you currently have your own website, you can include the Safe Local Trades logo and a link to your profile page.

Customer Contact Preferences

Customers have the option to make contact with you in a number of different ways; via telephone, our free text service or via email. They can send your details to their phone, email your details to themselves (or someone else) or print off your full web profile page. They can also save your details as a Favourite in their customer login area.


Published genuine feedback from customers is extremely powerful for the success of your business. Build your ratings and watch your business grow. We provide you with unlimited feedback packs that can be handed to your customers, or they can leave their feedback online. We do not accept anonymous feedback and every review is monitored; if negative feedback is submitted, we give you the chance to rectify the situation prior to publishing it.


Your web profile will be indexed by Google therefore giving you a better presence on internet search engines.


We carry out extensive advertising on your behalf (see below). We also offer the option of being part of our magazine feature pages therefore enhancing your profile and allowing you to target specific areas.

Member Network Events

Access to free members only networking events where you can meet other like-minded traders.


Safe Local Trades is not another trade directory; we only have limited spaces for each trade - our success is based on 'quality' of traders rather than 'quantity'. 

"Since becoming a member of Safe Local Trades, my business has continually reaped the benefits of membership. In addition to the new clients I have acquired as a direct result, my level of repeat custom has increased and I would solely survive on just working for Safe Local Trades customers, if I could. Becoming a member has been the best thing I have done since branching out on my own. Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into both member and customer services.
