Trust Mark is a Government supported scheme that works with consumer groups and the building industry to stamp out rouge traders.

The aim of the scheme is to help domestic customers find reputable firms to carry out repairs, maintenance or improvement works to their homes and gardens.

What does the Trust Mark logo mean for alpha-vae’s customers?

If a firm displays the TrustMark logo a consumer has piece of mind that the organisation they have appointed has been checked and approved by TrustMark.  This means that;

  • An approved TrustMark scheme operator has checked the firm’s technical skills, trading record and financial position
  • The firm has signed up to a code of practice that includes; insurance, good health and safety practices, and customer care
  • An approved scheme operator has checked and will continue to monitor the firm’s quality of work, trading practices and customer satisfaction
  • The firm is obliged to tell their customer about any building regulations they must meet, and will be able to give them the certificates they need
  • If there is a disagreement with the firm, there will be a clear and user friendly complaints procedure to help sort out the problem
  • It the firm doesn’t automatically provide insurance to its customers, the consumer will have the option to buy a warranty in case the appointed firm goes out of business.
