We’ve been recognised as one of the UK’s most ethical firms!

Spring usually heralds the season of change: leaves begin to return to the trees, lambs are born, and the days get longer while the nights get shorter. However, here at The Better Home Company, we’ve recently been recognised for staying the same. 

Now, you may think this is a bad thing, as change means progress, but in this instance, keeping the status quo is a success.

You see, The Better Home Company was founded on the basis of bringing transparency, integrity and consistent high standards into the Home Services sector, and we’ve received recognition for that once again.

Obviously we have 100s of 5 star reviews from satisfied customers, we have our 12-month "No Quibble" guarantee, and we’re Which recommended, but these are stories for another day. What we want to share with you today is that we are now a proud member of the Good Business Charter.

What is the Good Business Charter?

The Good Business Charter (GBC) is an accreditation which recognises responsible business practices. And in order to get this accreditation an organisation must meet all of the GBC’s 10 components. As such, not every organisation will be able to qualify for GBC status. Which means we’re in elite company with the likes of, TSB, Unilever, and London City Airport!

Effectively, being accredited by the GBC is a signpost to customers that an organisation is ethical in their behaviour and values.

What are the 10 Components an organisation must meet to get GBC Accreditation?

Those 10 components are best shown in this picture below. Basically, everything you’d want from how an organisation should behave.

Why have we signed up to be GBC accredited?

That’s actually really simple. 

All of our beliefs of how to conduct ourselves are in-line with the GBC’s. And all of our foundations are built on a dedication to always operating in a responsible and respectable manner. So it was an easy decision for us to commit publicly to the high ethical standards of the GBC. Because when an independent not-for-profit organisation supported by the TUC wants to recognise ethical companies, there’s only one thing on our minds: apply to be recognised.

What does this mean for you?

Well, dear customer, it actually means a lot to you. So let me count the ways this benefits you.

Firstly, you know we’re an ethical employer. And while that might not mean too much for you in the grand scheme of things, it does mean that you’re much more likely to get a quality job done through ourselves than through someone else.

That’s because study after study has shown that when employees are treated well they produce better quality work. So that means when you hire us for a job, you can be confident it’ll be done to the highest quality at the first attempt.

Secondly, you can be confident of our commitment to you (if this was ever in any doubt). As mentioned above, we’re Which Recommended, have 100s of 5 star reviews, and offer a “No-Quibble” 12-month guarantee, but we’ve now publicly pledged our commitment to our customers - and been recognised for it.

We pride ourselves on doing a great job for you, and we want you to know it.

Finally, in this time of the Climate Crisis, we have publicly committed to a policy of limiting our impact on the environment. 

Again, like with our commitment to our customers, this commitment to the environment was already in place, but we’ve publicly reaffirmed it and been recognised for it. In fact, we’re a Climate Positive organisation. So you can be sure that choosing us for your work around the home won’t cost the earth. And it won’t cost your children the earth either.

TLDR?

We’re proud to be an ethical organisation with commitments to the things that really matter. We’re committed to our staff, to our suppliers, to the environment, and to our customers. We’re committed to doing the best job for all parties concerned. And we want everyone to know it. 

Moreover, we’re delighted to have been recognised for it. Especially, as we’re in such elite company. 

It’s just one more reason to choose us for your projects at home. So contact us now for a free no-obligation quote. We offer extremely competitive prices as well as courteous and professional workers who'll do a great job to your full satisfaction and clean up after themselves too.

So make sure to give us a call today.

We are proud of our reviews

  • Nothing but excellence! We have a pleasure to work with The Better Home Company on multiple refurbishments projects and their quality of work as well as professional approach at every step of the way has been consistently fantastic.

    Alexandra Jurkiewicz Creative Lead, Helen Green Design

  • Mario recently installed new cabinets since my old ones were damage due to a water leak. He was very punctual, professional and thorough. Rafael was with him the first time and he did an excellent job and I did not catch the name of his colleague on the second visit, but he was extremely nice also. I was very pleased with the service and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Adam Michael

  • I can fully understand why Which? recommends your company. I am delighted with the result of the works and I was extremely impressed by Yarek. He had remembered what we had discussed at the first visit and understood what I needed and why. He is excellent!!... first class work, very knowledgeable, hardworking and efficient. My flat feels greatly improved after the works. I was surprised when John arrived to join Yarek. He was also well focussed. Also I was pleased to receive helpful phone calls to tell me when Yarek would arrive because he was delayed. This meant that I wasn't worried.

    Judith

  • Great experience from quote to completion of the work. All done quickly, without any trouble and to a high standard. This will be my “go to” company for future jobs around the home.

    Emma

  • I was positively impressed by the Better Home Company engineers. Not only they knew what they were doing and they did it well (install a new consumer unit and rectify all sort of issues with the electrical system), when confronted with a tenant coming back home exhausted from a business trip, a landlord checking on the work, a decorator and a surveyor all in the house at the same time, Laurence Lane showed tact, great manners, diplomacy and good old common sense. Well done!

    ANONYMOUS

  • We’ve had some great service from this team. They are always prompt/on time, don’t try to rush out with a half done job, provide constant communication, and always dig out helpful solutions. We’ve just been caught in the London flash floods and the job the team has done, in just a matter of hours, has been superb.

    Abha

  • Excellent service - we had been previously advised (by British Gas) that we needed an expensive procedure to repair the central heating system. TBHC provided an estimate (best out of 3 sought) and arrived to start work but noticed a problem, which 4 previous engineers had failed to spot or ignored. Engineers replaced a defective part and had the system running again in half the time and without the additional cost. Two friendly and knowledgeable engineers who I would wholeheartedly recommend.

    Richard Doble

  • Outstanding service by Michael the electrician and Mark the gas technician. Michael was very quick and efficient. He was exceedingly polite and very, very friendly. Such a cheery disposition! Mark took the time to explain what he was doing, which was very helpful. He too was very friendly and so lovely to talk to! Both were excellent, and I'd happily rely on them for any technical help again, and strongly recommend them to anyone who needs effective, skilled, quick, and friendly technical help.

    Akhil

  • One efficient cheerful and punctual guy you have in your company. He came earlier before me and i was surprised because they normally come a bit late. He was also good at explaining things on why it has to be done this and that way. He also courteously asked if i can wait for awhile for him to get a missing part. Such a professional guy. I give him 5 stars. And not to mention he never left the place he worked on dirty. He left it well tidied up. Thumbs up for Laurence
