I needed to have my built-in microwave fixed and appliancerepairman.ca seemed like a reputable company.
Wrong. It turned out to be an expensive nightmare.
I was quoted $80 for the initial inspection. The tech guy even had the invoice filled out right to the bottom line.
Things changed when he realized that owner of the house (me) was out of town and a woman, and that my tenant, a lovely man, was Muslim, things changed. I guess a mix of misogyny and racism tempted him to see if he could squeeze me for more.
On the phone he was condescending, explaining how a microwave worked as if talking to a toddler, then told me that he could service it and most likely repair it for about $280. I said that was fine.
Apparently, he crossed out the old figures on the invoice, scribbled in the new numbers and had my tenant sign it.
My tenant, thinking that the cost was too high, questioned the tech guy about it. He responded, Not to worry, if the microwave needs new parts, they wont charge for the installation, just the parts.
He spent ten minutes looking at the microwave then informed my tenant that he couldnt fix it, that it needed two parts.
That ten-minute cursory glance cost me $316 after taxes.
He said they would be in touch and left.
I week later, I got a new quote for the installation and the parts - $570. So, they were going to charge me $850 to fix a microwave that cost me about $600 to purchase.
I spoke to two customer service reps and they refused to reason with me.
So, I fired them.
BEWARE of the pre-checked button which will cost you $19.99. It's for an 'extended' cancellation policy but is only valid until 11:59 of the day you make the reservation. This amount is non-refundable.
BEWARE of the pre-checked Manulife insurance button which will cost you $14.94 a day while you are travelling if you don't uncheck it.
The seat plan diagram does not work. You spend all this time picking out the seat(s) you want only to get an error at the end.
If you call them to try to reverse the charges, you will have to wait at least 20 minutes.
