National trading standard services receive a large number of complaints, about motor vehicles, vehicle repairs and servicing.

In an attempt to improve consumer confidence and promote best practice Hull Trading Standards have launched a partnership with the local motor trade.

Trading standards carry out inspections and audits members to ensure they are complying with the strict terms and conditions of the scheme, which includes having a nominated complaints contact and complaints procedure.

The scheme is voluntary and commands an annual fee therefore businesses who opt to join the scheme are demonstrating their commitment to customer care and satisfaction.
