Motor trade buy with confidence scheme


It is often difficult for consumers to know whether they are dealing with reputable traders or one of the small proportion of rogue traders.

FCC has partnered up with our North Wales Neighbouring Authorities and we are working in collaboration to build a library of members, in our North Wales Buy With Confidence portfolio. We are hoping to have a wide variety of traders as members. So both Flintshire residents and businesses can benefit from the scheme.

The aim of the scheme is to provide a register for consumers to search when they are looking for a trader, this will provide consumers with more confidence when looking for a trader, as they know they have been vetted by trading standards.

If you are a Flintshire business and you would like more information about the scheme or you would like to apply to be a member, click on the link for more details or contact the Trading Standards Department on 01352 703181.
