Awards, memberships and accreditations

Which? Trusted Traders

Which? Trusted Traders, run by the independent consumer champion Which?, is an endorsement scheme designed to help consumers find local endorsed traders they can rely on.

Under the Which? Trusted Traders scheme, Trading Standards trained officers conduct face-to-face assessments, including business credit reports, business process procedures, customer service and complaint handling procedures and seek feedback from past customers. Due to the stringent demands of the assessment, one in four applicants don’t secure the coveted endorsement.

We are delighted to be the first national stairlift manufacturer to have gained the Trusted Traders badge.
