In our boathouse at the City of Sheffield Rowing Club, someone has pinned up a quote from the American novelist Ray Bradbury, one that was more recently appropriated by Adidas in a publicity campaign; “Love what you do and do what you love.”

Knowing how to stand out from the crowd and show customers you have something different to offer is critical in this competitive market. It’s amazing how many firms and their tradespeople are doing great jobs but missing out on an opportunity to gain an edge – and ultimately increase their sales.

By being TrustMark registered, you will get that additional recognition as it is the only Government-endorsed ‘find a tradesman’ scheme for all trades in and around the home. It provides the best tradespeople with the opportunity to thrive through reputational benefits, increased business opportunities and quality referrals from the TrustMark website and other signposting channels.
