Trusted Traders Edinburgh is the official ‘go to’ list of Trading Standard’s Trusted Traders, backed by The City of Edinburgh Council and supported by Police Scotland.  The scheme can help you find honest and reliable traders who have been fully vetted by Edinburgh Trading Standards.

This blog post explains why you may wish to consider using a local approved Edinburgh Trusted Trader for any of your home repair needs.


The Trusted Trader vetting process

All companies registered with Trusted Trader Edinburgh have been individually vetted by Trading Standards Officers.  This ensures that all members meet the high standards set out by the scheme – who doesn’t want a bit of extra reassurance before parting with their hard-earned cash?

When applying to join Trusted Trader Edinburgh, each business is subject to various checks as part of the vetting process.  These checks include:

  • Background checks with Police Scotland.
  • A search for any previous complaints within Trading Standards’ own databases.
  • A search for any negative history relating to the trader.
  • Check of business website and social media compliance.
  • Check to ensure any submitted reviews are authentic.

As well as business checks, there are also checks carried out on the business owner during the vetting process.  These checks include:

  • Background checks with Police Scotland.
  • Confirm applicant has public liability insurance and any required employer liability insurances.
  • Face to face interview at the trader’s premises, including inspection of any requested documentation.
  • Ensure the business owner understands and meets the Edinburgh Trusted Trader code of practice.


Are Trusted Trader reviews real?

All traders will display feedback in the form of reviews from genuine customers.  These reviews are broken down by:

  1. Value for money
  2. Customer service or reliability
  3. Quality of service or product
  4. Likelihood to use again or recommend.

This means that you can make an informed choice based on the experience of others.  Celsius Plumbing and Heating are proud to have been registered as an Edinburgh Trusted Trader since 2019.  During that time, we have gained over 600+ reviews from our awesome customers.  We have also accumulated the highest amount of positive feedback three years running in 2019, 2020 & 2021!
