What is required to join the NTTA
The NTTA has been striving for over 35 years to improve safety and standards in the towing and trailer industry and as such we require all our eligible members (those fitting towbars and servicing trailers) to attain an independently assessed quality secured standard (QS) within the first year of joining the NTTA. The QS assessment costs £330.00 per year and is an additional cost to your annual membership fee.
All NTTA QS eligible members are visited at least once a year and receive a thorough assessment by an independent assessor. The assessment looks at a number of different aspects of your company including customer service, documentation, workshop equipment and practice, customer complaints procedure, staff knowledge, training, and other criteria. Successful completion of the criteria allows your company to be awarded your annual Quality Secured accreditation. You will be sent the QS pack on joining the NTTA and be contacted by our assessor to answer any queries you may have.
Below are some of the benefits that will be delivered to Quality Secured members:
- A certificate of accreditation, banner, and signage for your premises.
- You will be able to join the NTTA Trailer Safety Scheme, working alongside the Police and Highways England to highlight and promote trailer safety, raising public awareness of the importance of getting their trailers serviced
- Direct customer referrals from user groups e.g. Camping and Caravanning Club, the Caravan and Motorhome Club, National Utilities, Local Authorities, Specialist Groups, The Automobile Association etc. and from the NTTA’s user training programmes.
- Effective 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – national promotion through the NTTA website (which receives approximately 40,000 visits per month) directing customers to Quality Secured members.
- A reliable knowledge base, information pooling, networking and technical backup.
- Clear guidance on standards and quality issues
- Support for improvement guidance and appraisal from respected assessors
- A workable complaints and arbitration procedure
