Buying from a mobile trader or door-to-door seller may be convenient, but remember there are certain things they must tell you, and you do have rights.
If you buy goods or services from a door-to door salesperson or from someone who has phoned you to make the sale, the law gives you extra protections. These types of sales are known as uninvited direct sale agreements.
Trucks shops or other mobile traders selling household goods such as clothes and electronics are a common sight in some neighbourhoods in New Zealand.
