Recently, one of our members had this to say about their membership:
"We at Johnson Brothers based in Hook, Hampshire have been members with HomePro/FairTrades since 2012. We really enjoy the benefits that our memberships brings; for example with each quote we can offer our customers an Insurance Backed Guarantee.
We also have TrustMark accreditation through our FairTrades membership and this gives our customers reassurance as our work has been inspected by the BBA. This sets us apart from our competitors. We also have a business web page which helps promote our company online. Here members of the public can view our references. Great support from the HomePro team and our Account Manager."
