Member Testimonials (continued...)

Paul Nursey of PSN Window Cleaning

"Being an approved trade member of Safe Local Trades makes me feel that I belong to an exclusive club - tradespeople that care about the service their customers receive and take pride in their work. Qualities that ensure both parties have a positive experience whilst dealing with each other - This is exactly the kind of business I wanted to operate and belonging to the Safe Local Trades circle helps me to portray this perfectly. Receiving an enquiry from a prospective customer is enjoyable as it makes me is another opportunity to show what I can do, that I offer a service that stands out from the crowd. I have also found that the people that look for you on Safe Local Trades usually guarantees a certain quality of customer which in turn leads to a positive experience from the tradesman's point of view. I must also add that getting a notification that another review has been left is a bit like Christmas morning.......a little bit excited to read what has been said about you. All in all my Safe Local Trades experience has been great. A very professionally run organisation and exclusive tool to promote your business. I intend to continue with membership to this "club" for the foreseeable future."

Mark Cave of Mr Clever Clean (Chimney Sweep / Driveway, Gutters & Roof Cleaning)

"I would just like to say thank you to Safe Local Trades as, ever since we joined we have had numerous enquiries for our services. The system of referrals and feedback works really well and this reflects on us as a company too. We thoroughly recommend Safe Local Trades to businesses and self-employed and, not forgetting all the people out there who are looking for reliable trades, as this is the only place to get true honest tradesmen in your area."

Neil Brumfield of Hands-on Hero (Handyman)

"Business is booming!" First a massive thank you to Eileen for allowing me to become a member of Safe Local Trades. Without this organisation I wouldn't even have half the leads and jobs booked in as I have today. This professional and friendly run business is valuable asset to myself as well as the customers, who can feel at ease and rely on reputable, reliable and trustworthy tradesmen and women. As a handyman my work is very varied and I meet people from all walks of life needing small or big jobs carrying out in and around their homes. Many of whom have fallen foul to the "rogue-trader" in the past. Safe Local Trades is essential to these people to getting the jobs done, put right or to be given helpful advice from a professional. Being a member gives me great satisfaction and pride in my work and I'm already experiencing repeat business and I only became a member just one month ago! I can't thank you enough.

Paul Judd of Smile Tile (Tiler)

"I have found to be a very worthwhile investment. It has been a good advertising tool as well as a very important sales aid. Safe Local Trades really does strive to offer the public safe and trustworthy trades and is unlike any of the companies out there who 'pretend' to do so."

Chris Knight, CKS (Double Glazing Repairs / Glazier)

"I have been a member of Safe Local Trades since 2013 and I am pleased to say it has enhanced my business profile in a thoroughly professional way.

Lenny Ramsey, Peterborough Carpet Cleaners (Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning)

"Safe Local Trades is a great way for me to show potential customers that I am a trusted, reliable and reputable local business and it gives them an easy way to provide feedback on the carpet cleaning service we provide. It can be difficult for people to find a tradesman they can trust and Safe Local Trades allows us to show that we are trustworthy and come highly recommended."

Paul T Burton Joinery & Carpentry

"Joining Safe Local Trades has been the best thing I have done. Having moved to the area several months ago, I needed to get my reputable business known locally and therefore applied and became a member of Safe Local Trades. I have just had instruction to go ahead with a large job and I now have 7 weeks work booked up. Thank you."

Alastair Peat of Alfresco Landscaping (Garden Landscaping)

"Safe Local Trades have transformed the impact of advertising on our business. All the boxes for targeted advertising have been ticked and we have seen a dramatic increase in good quality enquiries since we joined 2 years ago. The work that Eileen and the team put in behind the scenes to ensure the Safe Local Trades name is at the forefront of people's minds is incredible. By potential customers using Safe Local Trades as their first port of call, this immediately puts the associated businesses top of the list. We don't need to spend a penny elsewhere on advertising - and won't be for the foreseeable future!"

Dean Pallett of Limehouse Interiors (Kitchens & Bedrooms)

"Reading my genuine customer reviews is so reassuring, pleasing and motivating to learn that the hard work, put in by my tradespeople and myself, is recognised by them.  I take immense pride in the work my business carries out and to hear how happy my customers are with their kitchens is simply elating.  I now know that becoming a member of Safe Local Trades is one of the most constructive and important decisions I have made for the business thus far as it gives an element of credibility and confidence to new customers that is not possible by any other means. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a member of your organisation.  What your business stands for is so important to the world of home improvements and a vital public service that will divide the professionals from the rogues."

Bill Perrin of Bill's Fencing (Fencing Specialist) 

"I have been a proud member of since October 2008 and am very pleased with the professional service that membership offers. I like the fact that it prides itself on providing a safe place for members of the public to find a “safe” tradesman as they can feel confident in making a choice from members profiles, knowing they are criminal record checked, and can read and see previous jobs and customer views."

Helen Yeeles of Acer Spades (Garden Maintenance)

"After setting up my business as a sole trader in garden maintenance back in June 2020, Safe Local Trades has been instrumental in my success. A very supportive team who make running a business so much easier for you and at the same time provide the customer a trusted place to find the tradesperson they are looking for. As a bonus to this, you have many supportive members in the Safe Local Trades family willing to support one another.

I would fully recommend joining Safe Local Trades to either a new business or an established business as you can’t underestimate the amount of people your business reaches under Safe Local Trades. So much so I wished I had started my business sooner. Thank you Safe Local Trades!"

Richard Preston of Preston's Professional Carpet, Hardwood & Upholstery Cleaning

"Joining Safe Local Trades has been the best decision we have made since starting the business and we shall continue our membership for as long as we are in business. It not only generates us business each year but, promotes trust with our customers through our affiliation with them. The on-going, strong collaborations they have with enforcement agencies and other community based agencies also provides all the members with a distinctive USP over their competition."
