Reports of Cold Calling In Broxtowe

Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards Service have received a report of a trader who has been cold calling at properties in the Bramcote area, offering to undertake roofing work, which is reported to be of a poor quality.

If you are thinking of having any work done in your home or garden, we would always advise that you do not deal with people that cold call at your house.

You can ask your friends and family for recommendations or you can obtain free ‘pre-shopping advice’ by contacting the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 223 1133. Alternatively, you can find approved traders on Buy with Confidence on https://www.buywithconfidence.gov.uk/

In order to ensure that you are being charged a reasonable price for the work, it is advised that you obtain at least 3 quotes from different businesses before you agree to any works being done.

If you require any further advice, or wish to report people cold calling in your area then you can contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 0808 223 1133.
