Following on from our news article dated 24th February about companies going into liquidation and then continuing to trade with a slightly different name, one of those mentioned has done exactly the same thing yet again... less than 6 months later.
The grandly named Countrywide Group (Europe) Limited was formed following the demise of Countrywide Group (UK) Limited, but this new company is now also in the process of liquidation, leaving yet more debts and worried customers.
These customer reviews and comments show the pain being caused by this kind of shabby business practice.
It appears that the Director has also registered two more companies with a very similar name (again making a small business sound a lot bigger than it actually is) so we can only assume that he intends to start trading again from the same address, just as before.
Always check the background of a company before you do business with them, including Companies House (to see how long the company has been formed or changed name) and carry out a Credit Check (there are lots of companies that provide basic information for free or at a very nominal charge).
As noted above, we also strongly recommend that you search the web for reviews on any company. You may not find any reviews for a very small newly formed business, but Direct Sales Companies should have some kind of independent online reputation to check. If they don't, or the comments seem "artificial", then steer clear (you would be surprised at the number of companies that write their own online reviews).
We don’t advocate basing a decision on one or two mediocre reports, but when there is a clear sign that something is not right, then that should be sufficient warning.
You would be amazed at how many blind companies have been recently formed, have changed their name, or have a very low credit rating. You only have to look just below the surface to find this information.
Obviously, don’t waste time, heartache and money by dealing with these kinds of companies and, whoever you deal with, always used a credit card to pay even a small element of the deposit, so that you are protected for the whole purchase if the company lets you down or goes bust overnight.
And while we are on the subject of payments by credit card – beware that some blind companies charge an extra 2.5% surcharge for this method of payment to try and put you off gaining the extra protection that your card issuer provides, as well as trying to make a profit by doubling the true cost of credit card transactions.
We are an ethical conservatory blinds specialist and welcome any form of background checks, as well as being happy to provide as much information as you require before buying from us.
The independent online customer reviews of Conservatory Blinds Limited are all submitted direct to Checkatrade and cannot be doctored or amended by us, so can be relied upon to be 100% genuine.
