Additional Notes

Complaint: I received the bill about 2 weeks after the service. I immediately left a message with the Linder phone service asking that they call me about this charge. I called again a few days later. Eventually, there was a message on my recorder from someone in the company. I tried to call back when I returned home, but never received another call. My complaint was that the charges for changing 4 dimmer switches to toggle switches was exorbitant and I also inquired if they had a senior discount. I tried to phone them again before I finally paid the bill of $525.49 before their due date because I did not want my credit affected. One of the switches was a single switch, the other 3 were double, but the electrician had been at my home a few days before the installation to check out what was required. I wrote Linder Electric a letter sent with my payment. I want clarification as to whether the assessment visit (of 10 minutes) was the $150.00 first 30 minutes of the charge, or if they charge from their door back to their door in the labor charge. I can't say that I recorded the exact hours it took. I did not expect this type of situation. But the electrician said he would be here by 7:30 in the morning. It was almost 8 when he arrived. He was not here for as long as the charges work out.

Desired Settlement: I would like an acknowledgement of the problem. I would like a senior discount. (I'm 86.) And I would like a refund of the overcharge.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2014/04/17) */ The scope of work was to repair several switch boxes and replace (7) switches. The work was completed and customer was satisfied. The customer was advised of our rates prior to installation. She was also advised via a phone message that we do not offer senior discounts. We did not receive a letter with the payment but a copy of the invoice and payment in full. The charges are correct. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 8, 2014/04/22) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) We may have talked about 7 switches over the phone before the electrician came to the house the first time. I decided to do only 4. Only 4 were changed. One of these was a single switch. The others were double. I was in shock when I received the bill. I phoned twice. Days later there was finally a message that "***" called from Linder Electric. There was no further message on the phone recorder. I called again and never received a reply. I finally paid the bill because I did not want to harm my credit. I thought I had included a letter with my payment. If I didn\'t, I can still furnish a copy. Needless to say, I\'m still unhappy with this comnpany and their response to my questions. Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 11, 2014/05/01) */ I mailed another copy of the letter I thought I had sent to Lender Electric with my check again to them late last week. I received a call from *** ****** yesterday. We discussed the issues and he agreed that the price was excessive for the 4 switches replaced. He stated that they do charge $150 to come out and assess the problem, and that it often takes up to half an hour. He agreed to charge me one hour and half for installing the 4, instead of the 7 or 8 switches that appeared on the workorder submitted. Today I received his check in the amount agreed upon..a refund of $174.87. Thanks so much for your help. I now consider the claim satisfied. **** *****
