Additional Notes

Complaint: On Jan.28,2013 I called AllPro Services located in ******* ******** ** to come to my home to check my heat pump that had stopped working. My husband had checked it earlier,but was unable to complete the work. When the repairman arrived he informed me this was his last stop and if he needed any parts he would have to come back. He checked the unit and informed me that I needed a new electrical box. He checked his truck and he had one. He also told me my charge would be $400.00 plus my $89.00service fee. I thought the fee was high and told him,but I did not know the extent of the repair work. He changed the box and turned on th unit. When my husband arrived he checked the work and found the only thing he had done was replace the electrical with a $10.00 box that you con purchase at any ahrdware store. He even used my batteries. We had been OVERCHARGED. We were not happy. I called my bank the next day and put a stop payment on the check. I was waiting to hear from All Pro when I recieved a letter from a recovery service saying they had paid the merchant and wanted their money. I call ed other places that do the same work and some also I was overcharged. Considering the time and the part replace surely was not worth $489.00 plus $25.00 the recovery company charged me .

Desired Settlement: I woulg like a portion of my money back. We were unfairly charged for the service provided. We wish to give them this opportuniy to correct this situation.

Re: Complaint ID #*******

Dear *** ******,

Our technician responded to a service call for a Heat Pump not working at **** ******’s house. The technician diagnosed the problem and replaced the 60 AMP Disconnect Box.

Our technician received the customer’s approval to replace the part.  The customer signed for the satisfactory completion of work and paid for services with a check.

We did not unfairly charge the customer. The price we gave is our standard price for parts and labor for this particular service regardless of the time required to complete the service. 

We feel that if **** ******’s husband could have diagnosed and fixed the problem, there would have been no need for her to call a professional. 

Sincerely,

***** ******* ***** *******

[To assist us in bringing this matter to a close, you must give us a reason why you are rejecting the response. If no reason is received your complaint will be closed Administratively Resolved]

 Complaint: *******

I am rejecting this response because:

My problem is with the price they charged for the replacement equipment.  I know Pro Ser knows the product they used to replace my electrical box is not worth $489.00.  Another thing I did not give the repaiman my approval to replace the part, but I did give him my permission to do this.  If the weather had been different and I had more time to call other places I would never  have allowed  him to do the work,but it very cold and late and I have young children. 

I f my husband had more time he would have been able to make the the repair,but he had left his job and had to return before he could fully diagnos the problem.  As I said he did  replace the batteries so you see he was on the right track.  The repairman surely didn't replace the batteries he used mine. I still say we were overcharged.  We had all the conditions for someone to come in and take advantage of our situation.  We should get part of our money back.  I will never recomment them and if I know of someone thinking about using them I will tell them my store.

Regards,

***** ******
