Zenith Windows Sales Thugs Target Windlesham


It’s been a year or two since they’ve been round here but the aggressive sales teams from the widely-hated double glazing company Zenith are targeting Windlesham again. I’ve told them to their face, by phone and by email never to contact me but they haven’t kept any record of it. I suspect this is illegal.

Every time they knock on my door I immediately tell them I’m not interested but they never just say, “sorry to bother you then, good-bye”. They hang around on my doorstep for an argument. This time, however, one of them, the leader, got out his mobile phone to take a picture of me. Also, none of them had visible ID and didn’t display it when I asked to see it. They are the worst kind of doorstep predators, rude, aggressive and harassing people on their own doorsteps.

I phoned Surrey Police on 101 and reported it. Unfortunately I didn’t get their car registration number, I’ll make sure I do next time. If these characters have been bothering you too, phone 101 and quote ref P13249030.

UPDATE 22 AUGUST

This has been the most viewed post on the blog over the last week, so obviously people feel strongly about doorstep pests like this one. I’m pleased to say that Zenith’s Operations Director, Peter Gray, has been in touch. I’m not sure if he was prompted by my email or this blog… or Twitter… or the comments I left on Zenith’s facebook page. He started by apologising in this email before we spoke on the phone this morning:

Gray emailMr Gray apologised on the phone and admitted wrongdoing by his staff. He did say that they are self-employed so he couldn’t stop them from knocking on my door again, however. He has heard the account of doorstep interlocutor, although he hasn’t spoken to him personally, and says it is different from mine. He wouldn’t tell me the name of the young man in the photos above but he did say he would tell the police if asked.

Next I phoned Surrey Police on 101 to update them. They have recorded Mr Gray’s contact details but said they won’t phone him to get the name unless Zenith bother me again. I can expect a call from the ‘safer neighbourhood team’, I’m told.

If you’ve been bothered by Zenith Windows door-to-door salespeople, please phone the police and quote ref P13249035. Harassment is a crime and if these commit it enough times Surrey Police will act to stop it.
