Avoid Builders Selling Blue Badge


Postby doorwins » Sun Mar 24, 2019 7:28 pm

Hi, we recently encountered something called a ''Blue Card'' for all traders, when i glimpsed online it seemed liable but after when we tried to contact the company the issued it there was nothing about them anywere, although the paperwork looked legit.

So, we are double glazing firm so not sure about what a construction site contractor would need to enter building sites. Anyway, we had a fitting job in central london and were at the site relatively early. The site was a construction site with cranes etc etc, at the front gates were 2 smartly dressed fellows with high viz that stated to my fitters ''do you have blue cards (or blue badge)'' or something like that. They explained that London City construction sites required these cards to go onsite and to cut a long story short we forked out £400 for 2 fitters to enter the site and any site for 6months.

I feel like a wally but be aware of these scammers and please could someone explain either here or to our email ''what is a blue card''?

thanks in advance
