Warning about doorstep salesmen

The Comhairle is asking the public to be wary of salesmen who are going door-to-door with leaflets. The Comhairle is urging people to be cautious doing business with anyone who shows up on their doorstep.

Don’t feel pressured to make a decision on-the-spot.

If you do want work done, shop around and compare prices. Please beware that some rogue traders may appear to be genuine with coloured brochures and genuine websites.

Consumers are reminded that they can stop cold callers by displaying a ‘No Uninvited Sales People’ sign.

More information and signage can be downloaded and printed off from CNES site.
