About Buy With Confidence

Buy With Confidence scheme is a scheme supported by Milton Keynes Council's Trading Standards Service. The aim is to help businesses to comply with consumer protection laws through a partnership approach. Businesses approved under this scheme are approved by Trading Standards and this helps to reassure customers that they are dealing with legitimate trades people.

Do you need some work done at home or on your car?

Are you looking for a trader to do some work for you? Not sure which business is trustworthy? Try looking for a trader that is approved by Trading Standards under the Buy With Confidence scheme. This is a voluntary scheme for business owners who would like their business practices vetted and approved by Trading Standards.

An interested business can apply to the regional Trading Standards Buy with Confidence Team to be approved under the scheme. The business is then audited by a Trading Standards officer to ensure that they comply with the laws that protect you as a consumer.

Trading Standards also check their insurance, advertising, complaints procedure, criminal records, and more, before the trader becomes a member of the scheme.

If you would like more information about the scheme and to find a local approved trader, or if you are a trader who would like to join the scheme please visit the national Buy With Confidence website.

If you cannot find a trader on our scheme, there are many other schemes you could look at - just read the information about the trader scheme and make sure they will help if you have any trouble with your trader.
