Gerrards Carpet and Upholstery Cleaners are very proud to be members of the Wigan Council Good Trader Scheme.
The Good Trader Scheme is operated by Wigan Council Trading Standards Service and provides consumers with a list of local businesses who have committed to trade fairly and honestly. The Scheme covers all aspects of home improvement and repair work, including building, carpentry, external property repairs, gardening, decorating and home security.
Whilst Wigan Council do not approve the traders on the Scheme checks are carried out on the business prior to inclusion on the Scheme and additional checks to ensure they comply with relevant legislation, have necessary insurance policies in place and are members of any regulatory bodies they are legally required to be registered with. Businesses are also required to have been trading for a minimum of 12 months and before being admitted on the Scheme business are required to agree to abide by the Code of Practice of the Scheme.
Gerrards joined the scheme in 2015 and that year won the award for Good Trader of the Year Best Newcomer Award.
We have continued to win Certificate of Excellence Awards each year since. Here are a few of our certificates:
