Additional Notes

Complaint Category: Delayed completion of service

Complaint: Scheduled service time was not kept. Employee by the name of ****** was very rude and hung up on my call.
12/06/2013,payment $780.00 for 5 year repair service. Payment via credit card. My tenant and I scheduled service for 12/06/2013, and we both confirmed the date and the hours between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. prior to them coming. I contacted CoolRay on Dec. 3, 2013 to confirm appointment, and my tenant confirmed the appointment with me by sending a text message. Mind you he called Coolray before I had. Friday around 11:40 a.m. = 12/06/2013 I contacted coolray and was abrubtly told by the customer service representative ****** that are appoint was for next Friday 12/13/2013. Now my tenant is upset, including me as our time is valuable as much as Coolray values their time and I pay for it. Mr. ****** came back and told me that they would send the next service repair driver to my tenants home, and that he would have helped quicker if I had not been so upset. When I began to speak with him and let him know that people like me help pay his personnal bills, and that he should at least respect the people who pay his and help them out, he abrubtly hung up on me. Now as you could imagine maybe, I was really upset. I have spent nearly $15,000 with this company and then they act is if it is my fault that they have to make an exception in their day to come to my home for planned maintenance. I am hoping this is just ******'s thought process. Now I had to call back, and when I did, my phone abrubtly hung up as soon as it was picked up on the other line. I then called from a different phone line and a nice lady went back to double check and confirm that the dispatcher would be sending the next service truck. Now we do not know when he is coming and I have an upset tenant that has other things to do in his life as well. I need compensation for my tenants time as well as mine. We did not deserve to be treated this way by such a reputable company. Someone went in and changed the dates without notifiying us, as I am fairly certain that two different customers attached to the same property, calling at different times and getting the same date of 12/06/13 cannot be wrong. I also hope that ****** as spoken with as soon as possible about his demeanor on the phone. Customer service personnel with an upset customer needs to allow them to vent. Then speak calmly and see how you can help them. Often times the customer has a valid reason for being upset, as I have with this case. The customer should feel as if it's his fault, because the customer service representative is having a bad and wants the customer to get the feeling it is his fault. I promise you that we had a confirmed date of today 12/06/2013. From now on to avoid any other hassles, I will make sure that Coolray sends me a confirmation email with the date of service maintenance. I had another issue on the last visit where the service man was to call me the owner of the property to allow me time to get to the property at **** **** ******* **. Unfortunately for me Coolray never called me. So this time I've been more proactive to ensure when they are coming. Right now I am hoping that my tenant isn't upset and decides to go for the rest of the day on a Friday. His an Air Marshall and has a various working schedule. I really hope that this will be the last issue as I had two properties being serviced. Now I'm feeling that I may have hired the wrong company and I am stuck.

Initial Business Response
I spoke with Mr. ***** this afternoon after receiving this concern. We are a company who believes that customer service is meant to delight all of our customers. If one of our customer service representatives fails to provide our typical required excellent standard, we take it seriously. We have apologized for this incident and have agreed to credit the service call of that day. As well, we are supplying both Mr. ***** and his tenant with "***********". While this will not change what happened, it shows our great concern and care. Additionally, we will conduct additional training for our representative. Again, we express our apologies and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
