Member Testimonials

Neil Brumfield of Hands-on Hero (Handyman)

"Business is booming!" First a massive thank you to Eileen and Kerry for allowing me to become a member of Safe Local Trades. Without this organisation I wouldn't even have half the leads and jobs booked in as I have today. This professional and friendly run business is valuable asset to myself as well as the customers, who can feel at ease and rely on reputable, reliable and trustworthy tradesmen and women. As a handyman my work is very varied and I meet people from all walks of life needing small or big jobs carrying out in and around their homes. Many of whom have fallen foul to the "rogue-trader" in the past. Safe Local Trades is essential to these people to getting the jobs done, put right or to be given helpful advice from a professional. Being a member gives me great satisfaction and pride in my work and I'm already experiencing repeat business and I only became a member just one month ago! I can't thank you enough.

Andrew Hirst of Nene Valley UPVC Repairs & Maintenance

"Like many tradesmen, I am always careful where I advertise. My decision to join Safe Local Trades has definitely paid off. I was visited and my credentials checked. Once my profile went ‘live’, I had my first enquiry within 12 hours and now, after 3 months, it provides a significant amount of business and has provided the single biggest job to date for my business. My clients often refer to Safe Local Trades or, that another tradesman they have used has advised them to check the Safe Local Trades site to find good local trades people. I am proud of my rating, and I am proud to be associated with Safe Local Trades. It gives customers confidence that they will get a good job done at a fair price, with tradespeople that take pride in their work." 

Dave Fisher of Plumber 4U

"I joined Safe Local Trades in 2013 and, when running your own business, you can easily take for granted just how good Safe Local Trades is. It may not be the biggest trusted trader website but I do believe it is the best. The reason for this is that it’s not just working for tradesmen, it offers a wealth of good advice for customers too. Our customers can be confident that we have their best interests at heart. Many of my customers only use trades people from Safe Local Trades because it’s a service they trust and that makes our job as tradesmen a whole lot easier. Since becoming a member I have seen my business grow, and now a large proportion of my work comes through Safe Local Trades enquiries. So, a massive thank you for all the hard work that has gone in to making Safe Local Trades such a success for both tradesmen and customers."

Paul T Burton Joinery & Carpentry

"Joining Safe Local Trades has been the best thing I have done. Having moved to the area several months ago, I needed to get my reputable business known locally and therefore applied and became a member of Safe Local Trades. I have just had instruction to go ahead with a large job and I now have 7 weeks work booked up. Thank you."

Dave Jellis of Garage Door & Shutter Services

"I was initially very sceptical of the scheme but I will hold my hands up and admit I was wrong. I have definitely picked up work from being a member and I have promoted it through my website and on social media such as Facebook, as well as talking to customers and business associates about it, which enhances my credibility. The feedback I have had from customers through Safe Local Trades has been encouraging and certainly has helped to sell my products and services. I usually copy any reviews to my Facebook page (after taking out name and location) which also helps with customers who look at that."

Sean Rutterford of SRK Electrics & Property Maintenance 

"I have been a member for over a year and have been promising to do this well-deserved review for quite some time but, thanks to Safe Local Trades, I have been too busy to do it (being a victim of this highly successful service) but finally here it is! I would just like to say thank you for helping me bring my business back to where it is today.

Initially I was sceptical about joining, as I thought that it was just another web service. How wrong I was, and, how right I was to join! Thanks to this fantastic service I am finally where I should be at, which, is extremely busy. I cannot stress to you enough what this service has provided to me and my business. Thanks to this professional service I am constantly inundated with work. I am delighted that through this service people can see that I run a professional business and are able to see the service I provide by accessing my reviews. Should anyone need any advice, this service offers fountains of knowledge not only to the contractors but also the community who are constantly looking for good, sound and quality advice. I believe that Safe Local Trades certainly have their fingers on the pulse of the business and consumer community and for this also, I offer you my thanks. Here's to a bright and successful future for us both."

John Cranston of Cranston Plastering

"Since becoming a member of Safe Local Trades, my business has continually reaped the benefits of membership. In addition to the new clients I have acquired as a direct result, my level of repeat custom has increased and I would solely survive on just working for Safe Local Trades customers, if I could. Becoming a member has been the best thing I have done since branching out on my own. Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into both member and customer services."

Mark Cave of Mr Clever Clean (Chimney Sweep / Driveway, Gutters & Roof Cleaning)

"I would just like to say thank you to Safe Local Trades as, ever since we joined we have had numerous enquiries for our services. The system of referrals and feedback works really well and this reflects on us as a company too. We thoroughly recommend Safe Local Trades to businesses and self-employed and, not forgetting all the people out there who are looking for reliable trades, as this is the only place to get true honest tradesmen in your area."

Neil Rickett of NS Rickett Roofing (Roofer)

"Safe Local Trades has definitely put me on the map and becoming a member was just the boost that my business needed. The personal support provided, both for myself and for my business, has been outstanding and I have never been busier. I have 110% faith in this service and I am extremely grateful and proud to be a member. Thank you Safe Local Trades for all your hard work and I certainly intend to stay a member for many years to come."
