Approved Edinburgh Trusted Trader

Direct Scaffolding Limited were approved as an Edinburgh Trusted Trader in February 2020.

What is the Trusted Trader Scheme?

The Edinburgh Trusted Trader scheme was launched in response to the need expressed by Edinburgh residents for a reliable directory of reputable businesses in and around Edinburgh.

It is supported by Trading Standards, Police Scotland, Citizens Advice and City of Edinburgh Council.

At present there are nine Trusted Trader schemes operating in Scotland and together they are the benchmark lists of high quality, dependable companies for consumers and businesses in various cities and regions in Scotland.

Why should you use a Trusted Trader?

There’s always some element of risk when you choose a trader or company to carry out work for you so it’s a huge help if you can find an authoritative source to vouch for potential companies you are thinking of using.

Every company belonging to the scheme is thoroughly vetted by Trading Standards
for their quality standards in the services and products they provide and must meet their requirements before they are approved as a Trusted Trader.

Once a member has been vetted and approved they must adhere to a strict Code of Practice. This ensures that they remain accountable for the services they provide and gives protection for consumers and local residents against rogue traders, door-to-door salesmen and fly-by-night companies.
