Doorstep sales and cold calling

‘No cold calling zones’ can be set up where groups of residents wish to deter uninvited callers.

Street signs, door stickers, information packs and ways of reporting incidents can all help to give residents the confidence to say “no”.

No Cold Calling door sticker

Residents across East Sussex can download and print our Door Sticker [493.8 KB] [jpg].

Place this on your door or window with the warning side facing outwards. It uses the wording of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 and can be used by everyone, including people who live outside the current zones.

If you are cold called by a doorstep trader then please call Trading Standards on 0808 223 1133, you will also find the number on the back of the sticker.
