There have been reports that a company is going door-to-door stating that the City hired them to help people fix their basements. This is not true. In addition, anyone going door-to-door to solicit business needs a Solicitors' permit issued by the City. No Solicitors' Permits have been issued recently by the City of Columbus. If you have questions about anyone doing door-to-door sales, please research the company before allowing them in to your home.
