Hampshire County Council put out an alert this afternoon: there are reports of cold callers offering residents cheap carpet cleaning…but to beware of an inflated final price.

The council directs people to the government website BuyWithConfidence.gov.uk. There are privately-run trade recommendation sites, too, such as Which?Local and Check-A-Trade.

Parts of Whitchurch are designated as a No Cold Calling Zones. The idea behind this scheme is to deter cold callers; and to give people the confidence to say ‘no’ to any cold-callers that do come knocking, although there is no additional legal powers given by the scheme.

Tips and info about Cold Calling is on the Hampshire County website HERE.
