We like to think of customers as my extended family. Helping people every day gives you a warm feeling of doing right.

The company gives back by supporting the Aid2Gambia charity ambulances with free of charge engine cleans, and also supports two local race teams with free engine diagnostics and cleans.

Which? Trusted Trader endorsement inspires confidence 

Explaining why the company decided to become a Which? Trusted Trader, Adrian said: ‘Why wouldn’t you? Given the vetting procedures and moderation of the reviews, the customer and client support processes in place it is a great way to show people you are doing the right thing. This is particularly important when customers want the job done properly, rather than cheaply, so it is a wonderful endorsement.’

Engine Carbon Clean East Midlands (F5ECC) uses the Which? Trusted Trader logo on their uniform shirts and trousers, vehicle graphics, booking forms, website and social media posts and pictures. This clearly signals to potential customers that the company is reputable. 

Adrian offered insight into the value this recognition and reputation brings, as: ‘Many of our customers will quote the fact that we are Which? Trusted Traders as the reason they chose us given the proliferation of poor tradesmen in this market segment.’

To any traders considering joining the scheme, Adrian says: ‘Do it, but only if you aspire to be the best, want to continuously improve and most importantly that your ethos is to do right by people. You have to be a trader that can be trusted in the first place.’

Congratulations to Engine Carbon Clean East Midlands for winning August 2022’s Which? Trusted Trader of the Month award.
