    I would leave people with your contact details
    And ones that are not in will need a note
    I wouldn't explain about the other guy - who cares ! That's not your problem let him do that he's getting paid with your cash

    Well I would say the smoother the better so keep it simple
    People usually are ok but one or two may be a bit unsure at first

    Nice one . It's ok knocking doors canvassing but you can't beat a compact round already established . Is he gunna work it with you the first clean . This is the easiest and smoothest way of taking over a round . The custys that are in see you with the guy they've known years and that gives em confidence . The ones that aren't in just drop a note or call back with the guy your buying off . Good luck .
