Warwickshire Trading Standards are warning residents to beware of approaches by ‘traders’ operating door to door offering gardening and driveway pressure washing in Wellesbourne and South Warwickshire. An elderly Wellesbourne resident paid almost £300 to have her driveway pressured washed and ‘sealed’ (there was no evidence of the latter) after an approach from a rogue trader. The resident agreed a price with the first caller to her door, but when two different people later turned up to do the work, they demanded a much higher price for not much more work. The first caller then denied they were associated with him in a later phone call. No paperwork, including cancellation rights, was provided.
