If you are making changes to your home or you have a leaking roof or a problem with your car, then find a trader you can trust on the Fife Trusted Trader Scheme. All of the traders are vetted by Trading Standards, local, reliable and recommended by their previous customers. Not only that, but they have committed to working to our professional code of practice.

To contact our traders, visit www.trustedtrader.scot/Fife and enter your postcode to bring up a selection of relevant members who are the closest to you and able to undertake the work that you need. You can read the reviews that have been left for them by their customers and if you like what you see, then you can email the trader a work request, a simple question, or you can contact them directly on the phone and speak to them in person.

The scheme also has a dedicated support team who are on hand to help throughout the process, should you need them, to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the work that has been done.

Set up in 2011, Fife Trusted Trader is the only official scheme across Fife that is backed by Fife Council, with all members vetted and monitored by Trading Standards. The scheme is also backed by Ombudsman Services who provide impartial adjudication between consumer and trader in the event of a serious dispute. Fife Trusted Trader is supported by Police Scotland and Citizens Advice Scotland.

We are looking to increase the number of traders on the Fife scheme as work requests from residents increase. In particular, we are looking for more gardeners, electricians, handyman services as well as motor related trades such as MOT testing. Most trades are welcome apart from those related to the food industry.

If you have been trading for a minimum of six months, are happy to be vetted by Trading Standards and would like to see if membership would be a good fit for your business, please get in touch. You can contact the membership team on 0333 444 0185, email info@trustedtrader.scot or visit the website www.trustedtrader.scot/Fife
