Re: Bloody plumbers !
Thats London for you..and here am I working as a heating engineer for a medium/large company (15 local authority and housing association contracts) and wondering if I should set up on my own.
Its interesting though. Under our contracts if we fail to show up at the agreed time we have to pay the Housing Associations a penalty fine.
There do seem to be shortages of decent engineers in some places. Frankly I don't fancy London as the parking is a nightmare, and vans get done over etc etc.
Once this credit crunch business hopefully settles I might look at going it alone...What do the team think..should I or shouldn't I.
Incidentally, If they do show up, I'd politely tell them to p*ss off. They could have called you and are obviously cowboys if they coudn't be bothered.
Whats wrong with the old boiler?
