Every time I’ve had to call for services to my house, I’ve been disappointed. That is, every time except one. That was the unlikely incident of having blocked drains in my Melbourne apartment. Let me start at the beginning.
When I first got my own place, I didn’t get a pre purchase building inspection and so landed myself with tonnes of problems that I then had to fork out for to fix. So the problem I had at first was the darn central ducted heating, which almost blew my whole house up. But when I called the repairman, of course, they were late. They’re always late. They tell you that they’ll be there between 9 am and 5 pm so you have to wait around all day, and then they don’t even come and you leave the house and they show up at like 6 pm and you’ve missed them. So there was that. Ever since, I’ve had a chip on my shoulder towards repairs guys. Everything from my fridge to my vibrating waterbed has needed repairs, and each and every time the companies have been late.
That was until the draining company came along. When I discovered my drains were blocked, I thought, this is it. I’m going to have to face those darn tardy repairmen again. I cursed the ground I stood on, I even cried. But it was no use. In the end I whipped out my phone and called for drain repair, Melbourne.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit that I was horrendously wrong. They asked me to be at home between 12pm and 12.30 pm, and you wouldn’t believe it but they turned up at 12 on the dot. I was gobsmacked. I stood there thinking, ‘Is this real?’ After that, they actually did the job with no trouble and all, and they didn’t smack me with an unexpectedly high bill with all these hidden charges in the end. It was, astoundingly, I darn good service.
