We can now proudly call ourselves a Which? Trusted Trader, having recently passed a rigorous assessment that recognises reputable traders. Plus, as part of the same process, we’ve also been given ‘approved’ status by Hertfordshire Trading Standards.
With our new Which? Trusted Traders endorsement you can now have even more confidence when using The Loft Boys to transform your loft!
The Endorsement Process
In order to become a Which? Trusted Trader, we successfully passed the endorsement process, including a visit by a professional Which? Trusted Traders assessor, with extensive trading standards experience, as well as a company credit check and customer references.
“If I’m really honest, the process of becoming a Which? Trusted Trader was much harder than me and my team thought it would be. At The Loft Boys, we truly pride ourselves on making sure our customers are 100% happy with our service and we’ll always go that little bit further to make sure that’s the case. So we were surprised that there were things we could be doing for our customers that we hadn’t even thought of. For instance, as part of the Which? endorsement process, our terms and conditions now include cooling off periods & waivers, and cancellation rights & liabilities. Plus, we now offer insurance backed guarantees.”Dean Taylor, Founder & Managing Director of The Loft Boys
Which? Trusted Traders is an endorsement scheme run by Which? that recognises reputable traders who successfully pass an assessment process, carried out by our trading standards professionals. Not just anyone can become endorsed. The assessment process includes:
This was obtained to validate the financial health of our business.
The Which? Trusted Traders endorsement team checked a selection of customer references from our most recent work.
They did a thorough examination of our business and administrative procedures, to ensure that we have our customers’ interests in mind.
Interview and assessment
A Which? trading standards professional did a face to face visit and interview, to fully understand how we run our business.
Having passed all these checks, we are now able to join the scheme, agreeing to abide by the terms and conditions, and code of conduct.
Those who don’t make the grade don’t get endorsed. Not all businesses that apply get through the assessment process. Only those who meet their high standards can become Which? Trusted Traders.

Our service gives consumers the confidence to make the right choices when it comes to finding skilled professionals and we’re pleased to be able to give traders the chance to distinguish themselves from their peers.
