The Ladder Association has launched it’s second ever Ladder Exchange, after taking the scheme over in 2012. Held between September 1st and December 31st, the Exchange lets people and businesses swap any of their old ladders for a discount on a new one.
Those who want to trade in their old ladders simply have to check the Ladder Exchange website (ladderexchange.org.uk) for their nearest trade-in partner participating throughout the UK. They can then contact these partners, which include nationwide equipment suppliers, to find out how much of a discount they are entitled to.
Previously held for three months, the Ladder Association has expanded the campaign to take in Christmas following the success of last year’s Exchange – which saw 35 percent jump in the number of ladders traded in compared to the previous year.
The Ladder Association’s chairman, Cameron Clow, said: “The Exchange will enable us to remind the public of the need to check and inspect ladders and stepladders before using them to put up Christmas lights and decorations, and, of course, how to use them safely.”
