I found Bare Necessities through True Local and decided to give them a go. Gary responded to my email quickly, and was on site to access the problem promptly the next day. As the issue was major, Gary gave me options on the repairs, keeping costs down, and easy repayments. From intital email to completion of work was 48 hours. Well done and thanks for your help.
Gary was very friendly; however, I am very disappointed with his service. We have a small leak where the nut connect the pipe to our water meter. He charged us $100 and said it is fixed, but it is still leaking. Annoying was that we agreed on a time for him to come to our property and I extra organised time off work to be home. When I was about to leave work I got a phone call from him that he already was there and fixed it. I have no idea what he did, but it is clearly not fixed. I planned to be home to be able to see what he is doing. Him not coming at the agreed time makes me a bit suspicious. Maybe he did not want me to be there for some reason. When I contacted him about the issue he said I need to get part of my driveway removed to do a bigger job. I still have no idea what he did and why he said the leak was fixed. Overall very disappointing and a waste of money.
Hi Richard. It is a shame that we could not fix it without further works being needed BUT we must reiterate we can only achieve so much when the fitting is SURROUNDED WITH CONCRETE as we are not miracle workers. I did however tell you this on the phone, when I called whilst onsite - and I missed you but had called ahead to see if ok to go early and you agreed that was fine. I also asked you to keep an eye on it as I could not be 100% sure it was fixed. I also told you that the only way to solve the problem was to remove concrete so that we could properly access the pipe and fitting but as you don't want to do this there is nothing more I can do as it would be unwise to spend hours trying to fix something that I know can't be fixed in the way that you would like it. Im sure you would have been very unsatisfied had I passed on a bill for $500 and the problem would have remained the same. I am sure if you had another professionals opinion they will tell you the same thing.
Thanks you for your reply; however, I am surprised about what you wrote as it is unfortunately incorrect in many aspects.
1. The surrounding concrete was never mentioned as an issue until afterwards when I called to discuss that it is still leaking.
2. You mentioned on the phone that you fixed the leak.
3. Fact is that you charge $100 for pretty much nothing.
4. You did not contact me to arrange an earlier time. I definitely wanted to be present during your work and able to see what you are doing; however, you have avoided this.
You certainly can write whatever you want; however, it does not correspond with the actual situation.
Reliable, professional, friendly, helpful! Most important; great prices. I needed to replace two toilets in my house. Gary quoted a price and even though the toilet (after he had removed one) didn't fit and had to be returned the price didn't change. Gary sourced and collected the new toilets for me, no extra fee, all with a smile??. Thank you Gary. I will definitely recommend you to all.
