Don't Let Rogue Traders Profit from Storm Doris!
Published on the 23rd February 2017

Residents are being warned not to use cowboy builders or rogue traders to repair or clean up after any damage caused by storm Doris.

Trading Standards officers at Solihull Council are issuing this advice as high winds work their way through the West Midlands today, bringing down fences, walls, trees and damaging roofs. 

There is concern that dishonest traders will take advantage of the situation to rip off vulnerable residents.  This is true not only in Solihull but all over the country.

We would advise everyone to look out for vulnerable family members, friends and neighbours who can easily fall victim to rogue trader tactics.  Traders who knock on the door or only leave a mobile number may not have a permanent address and you will not be able to contact them should problems arise.

Trading Standards advise people to speak to their insurance companies before engaging anyone to carry out repair work and to approach businesses approved by the insurers.
