I must confess my admiration for E&S Trading after the recent toilet and fridge issues. Not only did Anna from E&S Trading send out the E&S plumber to fix my incorrectly plumbed toilets free of charge, but her communication was excellent and the plumber salvaged the problem for me. I was fearful about tiles being removed from my walls and I didn’t want any damage to my beautiful looking en suite, but it has all been done. The toilets are all where they are meant to be.
We were able to switch the fridge over too without a restocking fee. Hurrah! We were meant to pay a 15% fee as someone (not us!), opened the packaging on the fridge. After chatting with them and politely alerting them to the fact that we have been shopping there for all our renovation needs, they agreed to waive the fee. I think sometimes one needs to be prepared to ask these questions. In all honesty though, I cannot speak highly enough of the service we have had there (even when the kids got bored and were hiding in bathtubs and peering out like meerkats at random).
Here is the updated fridge:
It is a Fisher & Paykel 519l fridge. I wasn’t overly keen on the French doors, but I will be happy to actually open the fridge which I would not have been able to do with the other fridge.
So what else has been happening?
- The floors are being sanded and polished;
- The decking is just about finished;
- The flue for the gas heater went in;
- The painting continues;
- The builders filled another skip full of debris;
- Most of the cabinetry is in; and
- The carpet goes into the bedrooms late this week.
There is still more to go but it is getting closer to the end now.
Now the frightening part will be getting the bill from the builder with all the variations. Eek!
