We had a call from Eddie in Lawnton to quote for the installation of two fan lights which we did over the phone and he approved the price later that day.
We booked the job in and turned up on the following Tuesday at the address supplied. That was confusing as it was the address for the complex with over fifty units. Some twenty minutes later we were able to contact Eddie and get the unit number.
Mason then was able to greet Eddie and entered the home. He asked where the fans were and followed him go to the garage to get them out of a suit case. This was not looking good as he had imported them privately from India. It was quickly sorted that they do not comply in any way to Australian Standards and therefore we refused to install them. Eddie did ask about a source for good fans and we gave him details of what to get and where to go.
We have not heard back from Eddie and did not bill him for our wasted time so please do not import electrical equipment from countries where Certification and Standards Compliance do not exist and then expect these to be installed here in Australia where Compliance Rules do apply.
If you require electrical assistance, call Chris and Mason from Barry’s Electrical of North Brisbane and let us help you out.
