Complaint Detail(s)

8/25/2013 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Farella electric completed the work just fine but their second half of the job was abandoned. The second half of the job consisted of notifying ConEd that the job was complete and to schedule an appointment to have the work inspected, hopefully approved so the 110 line can be converted to a 220 line. I don't know if he went out of business or is just avoiding his customers or just myself. His phone is out of order and I am stuck with this 110 line and no electrician.

Update 7/**/13: I filed a complaint with the BBB against Farella electric in April 2013 regarding a failure to complet an electric upgrade. That complaint number was *******. Mr. Farella failed to complete the upgrade for two reasons. The first he admitted in dropping the ball but the second reason is that he claims that ConEd is suffering from a back log and refuses to respond to his inquiry. I continuosly called him but his phone was temporarily disconnected. He did not respond to my inquiries until I filed complaint #*******. Soon after that he called me and apoligized and said he if working on it and that he has ten other jobs also waiting. He again blamed ConEd for most of the problem. A few weeks ago he called and claimed that ConEd called him and arranged and appointment to inspect his work. He asked if he could come by that day and meet with the inspector. He showed up twenty minutes late but ConEd never showed up. Again he blamed ConEd for everything. I do not believe that ConEd is that busy or that unprofessional.

Desired Settlement: I wish I could figure a way to settle this. I am notifying customers to be careful who you hire. I would like the BBB to intercede and help me rectify this problem . I cannot afford to hire another electrician to do the job I paid *** ******* to do. Thank you in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.
