Confidence in making the right choice

TrustMark is the UK’s only Government Endorsed Quality Scheme. Our Scheme Providers and Registered Businesses work in accordance with our codes and charters as well as the codes of practice relevant to their industry. This means that when you choose a TrustMark Registered Business, you are accessing the most comprehensive level of protection available.

Peace of mind about quality of work and customer service

Whether you are looking for an electrician, a plumber or a landscape gardener, the TrustMark logo is a reassuring sign of quality and standards. TrustMark Registered Businesses are required to adhere to high standards of technical competence, customer service and trading practices, all underpinned by our Customer Charter, the Code of Conduct and the Framework Operating Requirements.

How you are protected

TrustMark Registered Businesses provide a minimum two-year guarantee for all works carried out in and around the home which includes but is not limited to, product warranties and workmanship. You can also choose to protect your payments with TrustMark’s low-cost escrow service as further protection.

Support should things go wrong

As part of the Customer Charter and the Code of Conduct, every TrustMark Registered Business must have a clear, fair and transparent complaints process. Businesses are monitored by their Scheme Provider and their work and practices are checked to make sure they are maintaining the high standards required, but occasionally things can go wrong. Most things can be resolved quickly and easily with the business directly but if this is not possible, further avenues are open to help resolve a problem, including ultimately, the Disputes Resolution Ombudsman, of which TrustMark is a member.
