Additional Notes

Complaint: We purchased a new air condition from this company. The new unit was bigger than the one we had. This made it necessary for the service person to cut some of our wall so that the new unit would fit. The service person informed us that a carpenter would call us to set up an appointment to have the repair completed in a couple of days. The service was done on 8/13/2013. It is now 8/19/2013. We have called Aramendia Plumbing numerous times. They state that the carpenter is contracted by them and they have no control over him. They inform us that they will try to call him. They also gave us a number that we could contact him but he does not return calls.

Desired Settlement: to have a quality repair done in a day or two.

Business Response: Our HVAC manager, ***** *******, spoke with Mr. **** on 08-19-2013 and told him he would contact the carpenter that day. The carpenter told Mr. ******* on 08-19-2013 that he had been out of town from Aug. 15th through Aug 18th but he would contact Mr. **** that day. The carpenter called back and stated that he spoke to Mr. **** and he would be at his home on Aug 20, 2013 to make the necessary repairs. It is not clear when Mr. **** initiated the complaint to the BBB, but we did not receive notice of it until 3:40 am August 20, 2013. At this point, things are already in the works to get taken care of. We apologize for our lack of communication between all of the parties, and will work to make sure something like this does not happen again in the future.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.
