Crime Prevention Advice

Dear Resident,

We sometimes receive reports of trade persons, gardeners, landscapers, general house maintenance service providers, window cleaners and builders going house-to house offering their services.
We advise householders and residents to ensure they are fully aware of the name/s, business details, contact details and business addresses before employing or offering work to anyone.  
All genuine businesses will be happy to provide written details of their business and also provide written quotes and details of work to be completed.  
Do not employ anyone or any business to carry out any work if you are not 100% satisfied and happy with who they are and the work they will be doing.
If you are unsure of anyone or business offering work then request they leave a written quote and full contact details and explain that you will contact them if you decide to go ahead with the work.    
A genuine business will be happy to let you decide about any work in your own time and not put you under pressure to accept the price or work immediately.
Talk with family and friends and check with the relevant professional bodies/organisations before accepting any offers or work. 
If the offer of work seems to good to be true then there is a good chance it is, the lowest price is not necessarily the best value.  
Genuine trade persons and businesses will often have adverts elsewhere and not rely on going door to door seeking work.
Please if you are in any doubt about the offer of any work then do not accept the offer.
