Cold Calling Incidents
It has been brought to the attention of local beat team officers that on 08/04/2015 a roofing company by the name of Techline Roofing were cold calling at addresses in the area of Rufford Avenue Bramcote trying to gain business.
We are aware of two addresses which have been visited, one of these had work done unfortunately at this time the other resident has paid money but no work has been carried out.
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.
We as a local beat team recommend that residents do not use companies who call at your door for such work. We do however recommend using reputable tradesmen either by recommendation from friends or by various approved tradesmen schemes.
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.
