Getting repairs? Keep yourself safe!


Message from our partners at Lincolnshire County Council


With the recent bad weather affecting residents of Lincolnshire and another storm predicted. We urge you to keep a lookout for opportunistic criminals who offer unnecessary home repairs. 


If you do require any emergency repairs, make sure to go with a reputable trader: don’t rely on social media recommendations, do ask friends and/or family for recommendations, and never contract at the door.


 ✍️Always ask for a written quote and contract for the work.

🪪 Make sure to get all contact details for the trader, including their name, address, phone number and/or email address.

⏱️ Don’t feel pressure to make a quick decision.

🚪Not sure? Don’t open the door!


You can report any concerns to Trading Standards through the Citizens Advice Consumer Service. Call the consumer helpline on 0808 223 1133.
