Wigan Council’s “Good Trader Scheme” is a directory of over 200 local, reputable businesses. All the listings have star ratings of up to five gold stars that previous customers have awarded them.
Ratings are given based on workmanship and customer service; the more satisfied the customer the higher the rating.
The scheme has been set up to ensure that the residents of the Wigan Borough are getting a fair deal when it comes to work round the home.
Trading Standards check out the traders’ trading history before allowing them to be part of the scheme.
Whether it’s painting and decorating, joinery, or just tidying up your garden make sure you visit www.wigan.gov.uk/goodtrader. Or ring the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 040506.
