“My husband says I don’t need a plumber in East Auckland anymore.” Those words from a recently divorced friend were heard over the weekend, but they were not written with the tongue and teeth of a poet, they were written by a homeowner in Plockton South Auckland. A week earlier her husband had been complaining about his leaking toilet, she was out the door as he headed to work and wouldn’t answer the door when he called. He phoned her that evening and after hearing no answer, he realised that she hadn’t picked up. At this point, her friend decided to take matters into her own hands – literally.
“She called one of her friends who lives in Plockton and got the number of the emergency plumber and sat down with her and the two men to talk. The plumber in East Auckland was surprisingly affordable and also very nice and cordial in his reply. He came round after about an hour and fixed the problem immediately, a feat that he admitted to having been slightly nervous about while she was calling him. He charged her only $40 for a full plumbing job and came to change the clogged toilet which was causing quite a bit of inconvenience to the home owner and her family.
While the conversation took place, the women’s boyfriend, who was staying with them that night, came to offer his assistance with any problems that the emergency plumber might encounter. About an hour later, the boyfriend returned to the home and presented himself before the emergency plumber with a rather large and heavy pipe that was causing quite a mess on the floor. After disconnecting the main sewer line from the house, the emergency plumber worked the pipe and successfully completed the repairs without any further damage to the house or the plumbing. He then left, but the women remained to give him a hand with the plumbing while he tended to the pipe. They were both quite pleased at the finish.
A similar incident had happened earlier that day with another group of women. The women had taken out a credit card and were planning to make their weekly payments when a man arrived on the doorstep with a rather large and unattractive pipe in his back yard. The women immediately asked him to hurry and fix the toilet that needed fixing before they left, but when he arrived ten minutes later, he informed them that it needed to be completely replaced and he would come to their house that evening to do the repairs. When they went to get money out of their bank account, he informed them that he would not charge them until he was able to fix the toilet. The women, impressed by his polite manner, gave him their money and waited for him on the evening of the day he scheduled to come and do the plumbing job.
Another emergency plumber, a handyman who did plumbing work for a living, stopped by as he was doing some last minute repairs around the area. As soon as he saw the leaking pipe, he called the plumber East Auckland in a very professional and courteous manner, explaining what had happened. He also offered to give the local plumbers free estimates on how many repairs they could do for free. The local plumber was thrilled at the opportunity to help and gladly gave the estimate he gave to the after hours plumber in less than twenty minutes.
