PostSubject: He must thinK I'm barmy   Fri Jun 17, 2016 9:27 pm

A couple of years ago we had a roller shutter door fitted to the garage. Last week it stopped part way down,and needed the button pressing again. After it happened a couple more times I phoned the fitting company. He said that at the bottom of the door was a small box containing two lithium AA batteries,and they needed replacing. He told me they were £30 each and offered to send me two. I phoned the manufacturer,and they confirmed the diagnosis and advised me to look on line. I bought two for £2.95 each plus carriage. He must have thought I was barmy.

The rogue! I nearly fell off my chair when I read £30.
There are some very unscrupulous people out there ... and it's not a good recommendation for the company.

I find that car dealers are the worst for ripping you off--a full service at a Meredes dealer is well over  £200 the same service where we go to is round about £ 100 for the same job..even the light bulbs are over £5
