    Quick Job - Essex



    This forum over many threads includes the words " get expert help".

    I get that - but when I've telephoned numerous RE's and asked to have a simple job done

    "No, we don't do that " is the common answer !

    I have a dehumidifier that runs on R407c and has worked flawlessly for some years.
    It now no longer cools - and I guess it needs gas.

    Simple ........you try and find an RE that will do this job.........nobody is interested !

    The threads promote all the skills and experience you guys have, and how DIY'ers keep doing it wrong........"get expert help"............if only !

    Only just got in the door now started at four this morn and I suspect most engineers are the same at the moment don't take it personally sir but like others I suspect the following apply
    1, look after your regulars
    2,look after the good payers and where u get a cup of tea and a smile
    3,do what u can when possible
    4, bad payers constant moaners or I can get it on ebay for half that is normally next week
    5,or the I ain't paying that for you to come out
    Nothing against your unit but will be a different story in winter ....I must of turned down 100 jobs in last month but u can only do so much I'm afraid also I would suggest the Carrott not the stick method if you require a engineer or even better find a company local and drop the unit to them in there workshop I love my job but with little sleep stop taking the piss

    I believe that the quick job! in my experience means that it will be a bounce back job and consume valuable time which is better spent looking after regular clients if this equipment can be delivered to a reputable company to repair it locally at your cost that would seem the best path.

    Bear in mind that if it's a small unit the cost to repair it may quite possibly be more expensive than buying a new one.
