Sheffield Flooring Solutions has been named Which? Trusted Trader of the Month for April 2023.
Based in Sheffield, the company has 10 staff and offers a variety of services such as floor laying, wood flooring installation, floor restoration, and floor sanding and polishing.
We spoke to Lisa Clark, Director of Sheffield Flooring Solutions, to find out more about their business and the benefits they get from being a Which? Trusted Trader.
Stand out from the crowd and become a Which? Trusted Trader today.
A full flooring service fit for all
Lisa says the business began when she discovered a gap in the market: ‘Some suppliers only sold flooring, then customers had to find their own fitters afterwards. I decided to have a showroom and employ fitters so that we could provide the full service to customers. We also offer full warranties, not only on the flooring, but fitting as well.’
Sheffield Flooring Solutions has maintained a perfect record of being recommended by 100% of customers since becoming a Which? Trusted Trader. The company has superb scores of 5 out of 5 for customer service, 5 out of 5 for quality and 4.9 out of 5 for value, which adds up to a very strong all-round package.
A recent reviewer said: ‘From start to finish, our experience with Sheffield Flooring Solutions was fantastic. Lisa sorted us out from the beginning, ensuring the fit date lined up with our ongoing building work and communicated any adjustments with us as early as possible to avoid issues. Liam and the other lads who came to fit the flooring were lovely and did a cracking job. We’re so pleased with our engineered wood flooring and would not hesitate to use this company again for future flooring needs. Thank you!’
Sophie Alford, Sheffield Flooring Solution’s account manager at Which? Trusted Traders, said: ‘I'm so proud of Sheffield Flooring Solutions getting the Trader of the Month Award! They are incredible at promoting the Which? Trusted Traders Scheme within their business - and they've reaped the rewards! So well-deserved.’
Giving back to the community
Fundraising and sponsorship are a strong focus for Sheffield Flooring Solutions, and the company enjoys engaging with its local community.
The charitable nature of the company impressed the Which? Trusted Trader of the Month judging panel. One of the judges said, ‘I really liked how committed they are to their local community and charities. Being a sustainable company also means a lot to them, which is great to see.’
Sheffield Flooring Solutions sponsors a local boy’s football club and also a young girl who started up a football coaching business. Two of the company’s warehouse staff take part in boxing tournaments and are also sponsored by Sheffield Flooring Solutions.
In March, Sheffield Flooring Solutions collected mothers’ day gifts and made up 50 gift bags to give to homeless people in Sheffield and the YMCA. Then at Easter, the company collected 330 easter eggs to help a young boy, Harry, who has had three heart operations. Each year Harry collects easter eggs and delivers them to children’s hospitals in Sheffield, Chesterfield and Worksop.
But Sheffield Flooring Solutions doesn’t just help local people. It has a collection box that it donates to the nearby People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) every three months, collecting on average around £150 a year. The company also fitted a floor in the local PDSA at cost prices and in the RSPCA, too.
Which? Trusted Traders gives family-run businesses a boost
Lisa explained Sheffield Flooring Solution’s decision to join Which? Trusted Traders: ‘We wanted to give the customers full confidence in our company by being part of a reputable scheme. Being an endorsed trader also means if we need any advice we always have someone there to talk to.’
To any trader considering joining Which? Trusted Traders, Lisa said: ‘We would advise any company to sign up and be a member. Customers love to be able to check out the company they intend to use and read good honest reviews from other customers. When they see the Which? logo, they know that we are providing a very good service.’
Winning Which? Trusted Trader of the month gives deserved recognition to a hardworking, successful company. Lisa said: ‘It was amazing when we received the call to say that we had won this month. We take great pleasure in telling our customers of our achievements. We are a family-run business, and we do everything possible to give our customers confidence to use our Company. We pride ourselves on our professionalism, providing a service from a sale only or a sale and fit. All our customers are treated with the same standard of service from buying a trim to fitting a full house with new flooring.’
