...and generally trust nobody.
We have a gas heater at work fitted by the heater seller's fitters of
choice. I didn't get a good feeling from these guys when they were
Recently it refused to light, so phoned the seller who in turn asked me to
phone the fitters.
'Oh yeah', he said, 'its common for those to need a [some regulator or
summat] and its over a year old so it will need a service etc, about £250
mate, when do you want me to come.'
I told him i'd get back him and something about the way he was mad keen to
pin me to a booking made me tell him to leave it.
I phoned the seller again, see if they could recommend a different engineer,
fortunately this time I got someone competent, he had me open a paned,
unscrew a little cover and push a switch, heater fixed.
