How do I search for a trader?
The Trader Register has been produced by Staffordshire County Council Trading Standards working with a group of partners including Age Concern, Home Improvement Agencies, Citizens Advice Bureaux, Stoke City Council and local District Councils all of whom are committed to supporting Staffordshire residents and businesses.
The Trader Register allows residents in Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent to search for traders who are committed to doing a good job at a fair price.
Sourcing a reliable trade’s person can be a difficult task for anyone. The register will help find a trader to complete work on your home or garden reducing the risk of becoming a victim of doorstep rogues.
How do I register as a trader?
Reliable traders with a good reputation can register by phoning 01785 330888 or visiting the Trader Register website. Contact details will then be given to local customers in your area who are looking to have work carried out. Traders participating in the scheme are not approved by Trading Standards or any other agency, if there is a problem, members have pledged to work with us to find a solution.

If there are not enough traders with a certain skill we will work with the industry to offer opportunities for people to learn a trade.
