DERBY EVENT PROMOTES GOOD BUSINESS PRACTICE
Total Hire and Sales Ltd has hosted an event in Derby to encourage good business practices and increase confidence among consumers.
The event was held on behalf of Derby City Council at Total Hire and Sales Limited’s training centre on Alfreton Road.
Held as part of the council’s Buy with Confidence scheme, the event aimed to raise awareness of the initiative and certificates were also presented to new members by Asaf Afzal, Derby City Council’s cabinet member for Planning, Environment and Protection.
Total Hire and Sales was delighted to support the event and to be an approved Buy with Confidence member.
Carl Tidey, Director and General Manager at Total Hire and Sales, said: “The Buy with Confidence scheme is a great way to promote and reward good business practice, and the event was a chance to recognise the scheme’s newcomers.
“I’m sure the initiative will go from strength to strength as more businesses recognise the value of working together to ensure the highest standards of practice and boost the confidence of consumers,” Carl added.
The scheme is run by the trading standards department at Derby City Council.
The aim of Buy with Confidence is to provide Derby residents with a reliable source of trustworthy local businesses vetted and approved by Trading Standards to ensure they operate in a legal, honest and fair way.
“This is a positive scheme which protects the vulnerable and we are able to recommend traders with confidence,” said Councillor Asaf Afzal, Derby City Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning, Environment and Public Protection.
The scheme is available to all Derby-based traders and other traders. Those based outside the area will be considered depending on the percentage of work carried out in the city.
