Compensation for no show tradesmen

People who take a day off work to wait for a delivery or a tradesman can be compensated for their troubles if the item fails to show up.

According to a new poll, nine out of ten people are unaware that they can claim compensation if a delivery promised to them on a particular day fails to turn up on their doorstep.

Three quarters of people have had to take a day off work to wait for a delivery or tradesman but less than 15% know anything about “consequential loss” when they have had to take a second day off.

The survey, by ITV’s Daybreak Show, found that the claim forces firms to pay for lost wages.
