Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We hired this company to repair our dryer and when we first contacted them, we were told that it would only be $96.25 (diagnosing the problem)UNTIL the dryer was fixed to our satisfaction. When the service man came out to do the job, he said that we definitely needed one part and MAYBE two parts. These parts were not in stock, so they needed to be ordered and our service technician GUARANTEED us that he would be back out NO LATER than 8/6/13 to finish the repair. The job was going to cost $329.54 and the tech said that he couldn't order the parts unless I paid 1/2 the total bill ($165.00). This is after I was told that we would only be charged $96.25 until the repair was complete. On 8/6/13 (the date the job was GUARANTEED to be completed) I phoned the company to find out why i had not been contacted about finishing the job. The very rude receptionist named Patty told me that the part wasn't even in the store yet and that I would "Just have to wait" When I explained that the tech told me that he GUARANTEED the job to be finished by 8/6/13, she told me that there was nothing that she could do, so i asked to speak to a manager. I was put into a voicemail, so I left a message explaining the problem and requesting a call back on that business day. I was never contacted by a manager and I paid $165.00 for poor customer service and a dryer that is still not fixed. Unacceptable. Do not trust this company.
Desired Settlement: Since I was lied to about the date of service, and what I would have to pay prior to the job being completed, I am requesting that the remainer of the job be completed and I will not be charged the additional $164.54 (remainer of balance). The total cost of parts is $147.48, so I think that the company should compensate me by taking care of the remainer of the labor cost. This is more than fair due to the inconvenience and poor customer experience that I experienced from this company.
In response to ******* ********** complaint on her ********* dryer, the unit’s repairs were completed on August 8th and she was given a $ 10.00 discount for her inconvenience.
Our service call and diagnosis is $96.25 including tax. The technician quotes the total job after the initial diagnosis. Our policy is to collect 'A of the job total is the customer agrees to the repairs. At no time did our technician promise her he would be back because he does not do the scheduling and does not know when the part will arrive at our shop from the distributor’s warehouse. I am sorry Ms. ******** assumed the part would arrive on Saturday but we are not even open over the weekend. In fact the part was delayed for several days as it was directly shipped from the manufacture as it was out of stock at all of our distributor’s locations. Our service manager spoke to the customer and explained her of the delay and if she wanted to cancel the order she would only be responsible for the initial service call and diagnosis fee of $96.25 and she said she wanted to go ahead with the repair. As stated before she received a $ 10 discount for her inconvenience and at this time or files are closed for
