Engineer running late or not arrived?

Hi all,
I just wanted to state that if you are expecting an engineer to arrive to either install or work on a fault with your service and they either haven't arrived during the booked timeslot or if it's getting towards the end of the booked slot and you're worried they might not arrive, please be aware that we need to allow 2 hours after the end of the slot before we are able to chase this up with our suppliers.
For example if it's an AM slot (08:00 to 13:00) we'd need to wait until at least 15:00 and for a PM slot (13:00 to 18:00) at least 20:00.
As long as we're alerted to these issues we'll do our utmost to chase up any such happenings as soon as we're able to after those times.
Thanks for reading.
Adam

Hi there,
Really sorry to hear that though it looks like the order's been completed on our supplier's systems - is everything working now?

BTO should be made to pay compensation when they can't be bothered to turn up.  I'm pretty sure if you filed a claim in the small claims court against them for your expenses they wouldn't be able to defend it.

Re: Engineer running late or not arrived?

I made it clear from the outset that should an engineer fail to turn up as arranged I would invoice them for £50 as presumably, I would be charged if the engineer called as arranged and I was not home?

Similar situation years ago with my bank and it's extortionate charge for writing a letter to me. I wrote and advised them that I would do exactly the same in return. No more charges after that!  

Whether BT or the bank actually pay is of course another matter as I would not have had them by the sort and curlies!


Truth is like a threshing machine; tender sensibilities must keep out of the way.
