Why Homeowners Should Use TrustMark Registered Companies

The TrustMark Scheme is the UK’s only government-endorsed quality scheme that helps homeowners find reliable, trustworthy contractors to do work in and around their homes. 

Established in 2005, TrustMark is a nonprofit organisation that is committed to improving consumer standards and protection among businesses that provide services such as:

  • Home repairs
  • Installations
  • Maintenance
  • Property development
  • Renovations
  • Improvements
  • Retrofits
  • Energy efficiency measures (such as solar panel installation).

Any of the above types of companies can apply to register with TrustMark. Only those businesses that meet TrustMark’s standards of customer services, technical competence, and trading practices can become registered.

Benefits of Using TrustMark Registered Companies

The primary reason TrustMark exists is to give consumers a simple way to find a quality, reliable company to perform work in their homes, from property development to home renovations.  When you invite a TrustMark registered company into your home, you can rest assured that they will perform work up to the organisation’s high standards of professionalism and technical expertise. 

Here are some of the reasons homeowners across the UK are turning to TrustMark registered companies to help them with all of their home improvement needs.

Consumer Confidence

If you see the TrustMark seal on a company’s website, you know you can depend on the company having the technical skills and knowledge as well as the business acumen needed to undertake your project. To be approved as a TrustMark registered business, a company must demonstrate their technical expertise and financial solvency through a review process, regular inspections, and input from previous customers.

When you work with a TrustMark registered company, you can rest assured that the people working inside your home have been thoroughly vetted to meet the organisation’s stringent requirements, which include providing exceptional customer service and maintaining a high level of technical abilities. 

Protection 

Avoid scams by only working with companies that have been approved for TrustMark registration. In the unlikely event that you have an issue working with a TrustMark registered company, you are protected by the organisation’s integrated Trading Standards disputes process. This process ensures that the business in question is following all of TrustMark’s requirements and procedures.

Additionally, TrustMark offers financial protection to consumers and homeowners. All TrustMark registered businesses must guarantee their work for at least two years.

Professionalism

TrustMark registered businesses are professional organisations. They show up for appointments on time and are courteous and professional from start to finish. They perform projects according to a mutually agreed timeline and clean up when they are done. They will give you a fair, accurate quote and a transparent contract with no hidden fees. 

In short, the people who work for a TrustMark registered business are professionals who understand the importance of treating their customers with respect at all times.
