Door to door canvassing
It has been brought to the attention of local beat team officers that Allen’s Maintenance Services are again visiting addresses in Bramcote touting for business.
This company were in the area in late 2011 and we received a number of complaints about their attitude and behaviour towards residents and specifically they seemed to be targetting elderly single residents. We have again had complaints about the manner in which this company have been trying to obtain work and so we please advise you not to accept any work from persons that come to your door.
Local beat team officers have given advice to the manager of this company and have advised them to stay out of the area and Trading Standards have also been informed.
If you have previously or are expecting work to be carried out by this or any other company which has come to your door and you are happy with their work or actions then that is entirely your prerogative.
If representatives of this or any other company do attend your house and you feel they are in any way aggressive please ring 999 if they continually attempt to pressure you into having work done please also ring the Police and report their actions to Trading Standards.
If you have any elderly or vulnerable neighbours or friends please can I ask that you pass this information on and also keep an eye out for any unknown visitors to their addresses.
