Builders Merchants Federation

Trust A Trader’s online directory of local, reputable traders has been created to make it easier than ever for people to find tradespeople and suppliers that they can trust. We encourage best practice amongst all of the traders registered in our directory and encourage them to build valuable relationships, accreditations and memberships with appropriate professional bodies, such as the Builders’ Merchants Federation.

The Builders’ Merchants Federation (BMF) is the UK’s only organisation for merchants and suppliers. The BMF protects merchants’ and suppliers’ interests within a range of bodies, including Central and Local Government and regulatory bodies such as planning departments and Trading Standards. The BMF provides a range of specialised, industry-specific training, from apprenticeships to product training and selling, from manager development to a foundation degree. With 480 members, which include individual traders and leading manufacturers and suppliers, the Builders’ Merchants Federation strives to ensure high standards, protecting its members and their customers.

By choosing a trader on Trust A Trader that is registered with the BMF, you know that their materials and suppliers meet the required standard to allow for the highest quality work.
