Additional Notes

Complaint: Was not authorized to do repairs. company was contacted and asked to check on lighting issue. Repairs were made without any authorization from customer that placed service call. repair quote was written on repair order after work was done. work order was signed by unauthorized person and not by the person that requested the service call. a quote for the repairs was never presented to the person that requested the service call before repairs were done and bill presented to unauthorized personel.

Desired Settlement: i do not wish to pay for the unauthorized repair.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2014/11/12) */ Hi ***** I spoke to Charter school the other day and learned that *** and **** are husband and wife working for Charter school they both have provided signatures in the past authorizing the work and for acceptance of the work. I also spoke to **** at Charter school she works in accounts payable she explain to me that the board members reviewed the invoice and decided not to pay because we did not follow their procedure they thought the work needed was going to be done under warranty. The school principle made the comment that they need to report Safeway electric to the BBB for going around doing work without authorization. I reassured **** that it is our practice to get signatures authorizing the work to be done before any work is started and to get acceptance of work before we receive payment. My goal is to over come this issue and maintain a happy customer and for Safeway electric not to receive complaint on this matter and go against us with the BBB. Please advise thank you I forgot to mention in my response when speaking to **** I agreed to keep a happy customer I would void out the contract #XXXXX and not bill them for the sign amount of $583.26 hopefully we can continue doing business with Charter school. I also explained if they want to in force this complaint I will turn them over to collections and write bad reviews about Charter schools. Sincerely, ***** ***** Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (2000, 9, 2014/11/13) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) the issue has been resolved to our satisfaction.
