Do Not Knock stickers
Do Not Knock stickers are available free of charge at all Service Tasmania outlets or by ringing CAFT on 1300 65 44 99. You can also download a paper copy of the Do Not Knock sticker (PDF, 50.64 KB).
If you have a Do Not Knock sticker clearly displayed in the front of your house, and a sales person knocks on your door, you should complain about their conduct. You can complain to the trader [sample letter to trader (DOC, 29 KB)] as well as writing to CAFT [sample letter to CAFT (DOC, 36.5 KB)]. CAFT will assess the information and will initiate enforcement action if appropriate.
