All businesses promoted by Tried and Trusted magazine and website must be
honest, reliable, provide a professional service with value for money.
They would have met at least one member of the Tried and Trusted board before their advert can be accepted. They must also agree our terms and conditions. Our policy is to protect the public from unscrupulous traders. We would prefer either a testimonial from a current advertiser or a recommendation from a reader and then that business must provide three checkable references, proof of their liability insurance and membership of any trade authority. Our standards are purposely set very high. Trying to find traders who can provide what we insist on is getting harder and harder each year.. Most publishers will accept anybody to advertise in their publications without checking their credibility. There are some traders that because we have rejected them or withdrawn them from the publication and website will try to discredit us. We know that we have the support of the public behind us. If we find any business that becomes complacent and we get more than one serious complaints that is upheld after investigation, we will have no hesitation but to remove them instantly. We would rather make no profit than promote any unprofessional trader. Always check our trusted traders register on www.triedandtrusteduk.com to ascertain that they still have our support
