Buy With Confidence with The Disc Directory

Philip Molden Sep 7 2007

The Disc Directory, an innovative business directory, can now offer its customers even more assurance that they are choosing the right company.

The Company behind The Disc Directory is the first business in Portsmouth to be accepted into the Buy With Confidence scheme by Portsmouth City Council as well as the first ever company that distributes directories in the UK to be vetted and approved by Trading Standards.

The Buy with Confidence scheme aims to make it easier for consumers to find businesses they can really trust.

Originally developed by Hampshire County Council, and offered to businesses in Hampshire including Portsmouth, the scheme proved such a success it is now being taken onboard by Portsmouth City Council as well as being rolled out across other parts of the country.

"This is fantastic news for The Disc Directory. It means that all our hard work has been recognised in making sure that we continue to meet and exceed our high standards throughout the business," said Operations Director Philip Molden.

Consumers who choose a Buy With Confidence member can be sure that the company is committed to fair trading and providing a quality service as well as dealing with customers promptly and efficiently. In addition, The Disc Directory includes several other Portsmouth businesses that are members of the Buy with Confidence scheme, so look out for the logo.

The Buy With Confidence scheme runs alongside Portsmouth City Council's other scheme for local businesses, Square Deal, which also includes The Disc Directory as a member.

The Disc Directory is the first of its kind. In June, the directory was delivered direct to the doormats of the people of Portsmouth on a business card size CD and has now received over 10,000 visitors/buyers to the website.

The Disc Directory lists over 10,000 businesses in Portsmouth covering 1300 categories on its website which is online at

The directory features a unique customer feedback facility called ‘Word of Mouth' where it highlights the most recommended business and shows any recent feedback from satisfied customers.
