West Yorkshire Trading Standards Service is delighted to welcome on board its latest members to its successful Motor Trade Partnership, namely

Both have signed up to the stringent terms and conditions set by West Yorkshire Trading Standards Service.

Councillor Clarke Chairman of West Yorkshire Joint Services said “These are just a few of the benefits to consumers of choosing a Partnership Member. The scheme is aimed at ensuring that consumer complaints are handled swiftly and with least distress to the consumer.

I would encourage consumers to “Look for the logo” when choosing a company to do business with.
