Which? Trusted Traders has teamed up with CIPHE to help you get more recognition in the market. Customers already have peace of mind that you've got the technical skills to be accredited by CIPHE. With our endorsement, they'll have the added assurance that your business procedures have also been vetted and you're committed to customer service.

The Which? Trusted Trader logo sends out a strong signal to customers. It tells them they can be confident of receiving a good service from a reputable business, and it gives them the peace of mind that comes from having access to a dispute resolution service if things go wrong.

Which? Trusted Traders – part of consumer champion Which? – endorses traders all over the UK, and consumers from all over the UK are able to access our website for free to find traders they can trust.
