Advice from Coulsdon East SNT – driveway works

Here’s an update from the local policing team for Coulsdon East.

Dear residents,
We have noticed having spoken to some residents where drives are being done in Old Coulsdon that the work is being done by a verbal quote only.
 
We appreciate the work is probably being done a lot cheaper, but those who are just obtaining a verbal quote only is a very dangerous game to play.
 
Always obtain a written quote for the work carried out and obtain a few more quotes to get an idea of what a fair price is. Not advisable to have work done from a cold caller.
 
Check the company out as much as you can, do some research and don’t get bullied into having the work done.
 
Keep an eye out for any elderly residents who may get confused or scammed into work they don’t need.
Regards,
Jeff.
