Fucking Safestyle UK!
For months, these bastards kept ringing me, offering me free estimates etc, after a bajillion no's, I hit upon a brainwave... Say yes! Appointment made, unfortunately for them, at a time when I'm in work. Phone call the next day, my grovelling apologies, another appointment made. Not home. 3 months I did this for, 3 fucking months, & the stupid bastards just kept coming back again & again!

It eventually stopped when I got bored & explained to the lad on the phone that for the last 3 months, I'd been wasting their time, man power & money by making them come to my house & not being in (or sometimes just ignoring them) on purpose. His response? "You could have just said no". I did mate, a bajillion times, you didn't listen, so I did this!

No contact for 2 years now! Like a dream

I made an appointment with them....
I actually wanted to get a new door fitted so i arranged for them to come round. Then i did some reading up about them on the net and found nothing but bad stories about them being unrelible and pushy. I called them to cancel the visit and the guy asked why so i told him. His response was "Yeah, but there are a lot worse out there" best of na bad bunch then...

Oh and one of the sales pikies scrawled SSUK on my door frame like some territorial tag to warn off other salesmen. Wankers.
