Alert message sent 19/02/2021 11:12:00

Information sent on behalf of Local Authority


Nottinghamshire County Council Trading Standards Service have received a report of a Trader in the West Bridgford area who has been cold calling residents asking whether they would like a quote to undertake landscaping and roofing works.

If you are thinking of having any work done in your garden or home, 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.
