Isle of Wight Trader Approval Scheme

The Isle of Wight Trader Approval Scheme  provides consumers with a list of local businesses which have given their commitment to trading fairly. Every business listed in the Isle of Wight Trader Scheme has undergone a series of detailed background checks before being approved as a member of the scheme. To view any electricians that have signed up to this scheme, choose the section titled Home Interior or use the search term electrics. This service also provides the details of many other trades which may be of use to you.
