The end of poor service and rogue traders?

Published on 14/11/2006 in Spanish Lifestyle

Traders Guild logo The Traders Guild was launched here in Spain with the sole purpose of supporting good business practice across all aspects of quality, service, reliability and trust.

We have all heard the horror stories about poor service and rogue traders and hence it was the team’s objective to try to rectify this situation. Extensive research was carried out here in Spain and offshore and it became evident that there was a real need for an official organisation to be formed to help both consumers and trading businesses who recognise good standards of business practice.

“People are tired of being taken for a ride, and are frustrated by the lack of professional ethics here in Spain. We want the Traders Guild to help change the situation” says Richard Bloom M.D.

“Our members are referenced and we take full proof of I.D. If you see a company displaying our logo, you know they follow our code of conduct and support our ethos of good business practice”

The Traders Guild currently has members offering services in the following areas:

Advisory Service
