IT IS NOT EXCLUSIVE CLUB - any person can become a Guild member. All that is required is to agree to provide services inline with the the requirements from the Guild of British Molecatchers proven working code of practice. This bestows a high level of welfare for the mole whilst under the direct control from the use of mechanical devices and an efficient assistance to customers.
The unscrupulous will always find a way to deceive people, however by following a few simple rules, molecatchers and customers could find it easier to make judgments about who they trust ( yes it works both ways ).
Many providers will claim to offer the best service and value for money, but by employing members displaying the Guild Logo potential clients can immediately identify with someone for their honesty and dedication to providing the best possible assistance.
Our members work under the Guilds code of practice so all customers can be sure and openly evaluate the assistance they receive
The Guild is not an arbitrator - if you have concerns about a Guild member or dispute, speak to the member concerned- they are professionals and should be able to resolve any issues satisfactorily.
We will not enter into any disputes ourselves; we will however openly remove members from the membership if they fall short of the minimum requirements is agreed in their membership.
The Guild of British Molecatchers accept that there will be those that will provide bad working practices, and will despite claims displayed on the World Wide Web or media of prowess and promises for a duty of care for a target mole, but then fail to operate a service that is parallel to any such claims.
The Guild requires its members to operate with a transparency to inform and believes there are no reasons not to provide a level of welfare and service to benefit the customer and the mole.
The Guild has and will continue to work to promote the highest level of welfare for moles whilst under the control from man.
It provides training and advice to anyone asking to be educated and enlightened minimising the excuses not to provide an honest service.
