If you are contacted by a cold caller over the telephone or on your doorstep some questions to ask are, do I really need the work/equipment being offered, if I haven’t already asked for a quote, will the person provide a written contract/quote, have I obtained other quotes to ensure the price being quoted is reasonable and have I checked to see if they are qualified to carry out the work.
