    Door to Door Leafleting

    Door to Door Leafleting 11th Mar 18 at 10:50 AM
    This morning (Sunday) I was woken at 0722 by a lady delivering leaflets through my door for dor2dor.com.

    Their literature states that they can deliver from 7am to 9pm.

    I'm opted out with the Royal Mail so don't get their junk leaflets - does anyone know if there is something similar for private companies?

    Unfortunately not. You could try putting a sign on the door?

    I have a sign on my door but unfortunately it gets ignored. 7.22 on a Sunday is far too early to be delivering leaflets in my opinion

    Seems a recent trend. Had a few early leaflet runs round here lately.
    Perhaps a lockable letterbox?
    Reality is leafleting is a cheap advertising method that works.

    Post the leaflets back to the company without a stamp on the envelope.

    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    I live in the UK City of Culture 2021

    I had to put mothballs in my wallet - the moths had learned the PINs to my cards...

    Pop them in recycling.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

    You could get a quieter letter box so that it doesn't wake you up. Or invest in a wall mounted one.

    You could just ignore it. The person is after all only doing their job.
