Clyde Windows & Construction is pleased to be a part of the Government's "Buy With Confidence" Scheme.
This is a huge accomplishment that allows our prospective customers to buy with confidence, knowing that trading standards has spent time investigating all aspects of our business, including employee background checks (via Disclosure Scotland), our sales ethos, product quality, contract fairness, pricing, and guarantees. They also thoroughly investigated our customer service, after-sales service, and complaint handling procedures.
As previously stated, trading standards must be completely satisfied with every aspect of the company. Trading Standards state Many local authorities run approved trader schemes; South Lanarkshire's is Buy with Confidence. It is the UK's largest national approved trader scheme, and it aims to provide consumers with a reliable way of finding trustworthy local businesses that have undergone rigorous background checks and audits before being accredited. Buy with Confidence is coordinated by a number of Trading Standards services. The Office of Fair Trading has endorsed and approved it, and it is regarded as a "best practise" scheme.
