Due to the nature of our business, we take doorstep security very seriously as we understand that letting a stranger into your home is not without its risks. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for burglars to try and gain entry into your home by distraction or deception relating to who they are and why they may be visiting you. As a result, we would like to provide you with some basic steps to take when the door bell rings, aimed at keeping you and your family safe:
Step 1 - Are you expecting anyone? If in doubt, keep them out!
Don’t feel pressured into opening the door. If you have any reason to be suspicious you can speak to them through the letterbox, keeping the door locked.
Step 2 – Use your door chain or spy hole to see who is calling before opening the door.
By keeping your door chain locked when you answer the door, you have a barrier between you and any potential threat. Additionally, if you use a spy hole to identify a cold caller and they cannot provide adequate ID, do not open the door. You and your family's safety should always be your priority, regardless of any explanation that the caller may give.
Step 3 – Check who they say they are.
If you are in any doubt about the callers identity, you can cross-check with the company that they claim to be from. If they don't have adequate ID, don't let them in. Also, don’t rely on identification alone. Call a neighbour or the police to help you to verify a cold caller. If you think someone is a rogue trader call 101* or to report a distraction burglar or rogue trader who has taken your money and is still in the area, call 999 as quickly as you can.
*101 is a non-emergency number to report anti-social behaviour which is now in use throughout the UK.
