Indian Trail’s Peddler’s Ordinance requires any business that wishes to sell door-to-door to pay an application fee, furnish a $1,000 bond and have its employees undergo background checks and fingerprinting.
As another layer of security, the Town now requires solicitors to wear an ID badge that includes:
- Permit ID
- Expiration date
- Name of the employee and their picture
- Name of the business
The goal is to help ensure only legitimate businesses are going door to door and protect our residents from fraud and other dangers.
If a solicitor knocks on your door and is unable to produce a Town-approved ID badge or if the badge is expired, please contact Town Hall during business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) by calling 704-821-5401. If it is after hours, please contact the Sheriff’s Office by calling 911.
