As a Certass registered company we have to be vetted by both Certass and their registered insurance provider.

As a Certass registered and approved company we must provide you with the opportunity to an insurance backed guarantee, therefore in the unlikely event that we should cease to trade, our Guarantee would still be honoured by their registered Insurance Provider.
