A few weeks ago a salesman came through my neighborhood offering to do work that would be paid by my homeowners insurance. After he came through I saw a few of my neighbors with signs in their yard advertising work being done by this company. I begged off when he came to my door. My question is, when a company is offering to do work that supposedly will be paid by the homeowners insurance is this a legitimate claim or is this guy doing something shady? I am a new homeowner so this is new to me.
The other night I had a salesman come to my door from "The Window Store Home Improvements, Inc." He gave me a nice spiel about how they're looking for homes in my area that are willing to put advertising signs out front, and willing to be listed on their website, www.twshomesinc.com. In exchange they can give me new windows at wholesale cost instead of retail. The salesman also said that their windows are warranteed for 50 years, which he said was much more than typical warranties. [more inside]
OK, did I just get scammed? I just bought a magazine subscription from a door-to-door salesperson. [more inside]

I'm considering upgrading my internet service. I currently have basic DSL from AT&T bundled with a landline. Today a couple of guys with "AT&T uverse solutions provider" ID's came to the door and want to sell me this Uverse service. I'm suspicious. [more inside]
Does anyone in the U.S. have any experience with Door-to-Door Storage or, more importantly, their newer spinoff City-to-City Moving? We're moving cross country, and they sounded great at first - much less hassle than U-Haul, even if a little more expensive. But the more we deal with them, the more red flags are going up: one person tells us one thing, another tells us something different, etc. We're getting a general feeling of incompetence that has us wondering if it's wise to entrust everything we own to these people.
