Friday is a washing day in this household
About 2pm yesterday the third load came out of the tumble drier still wet , the fourth was waiting to dry and the fifth was in the washer
Tried the drier again with different setting , no heat
The machine was about 17 years old and had been making odd noises for some time , so down the road to our local sales/service outlet . What I wanted was in stock , bought it by 245pm . "When would you like it?" "Can you manage today?" "No problem"
Installed and in use by 430pm
Same price (including installation and disposal) as John Lewis or Curry's . Delivery several days quicker

Well done DAR of Malvern!

Before anyone asks , we did away with our rotary drier some years ago on safety grounds . The risk of falling down a steep bank outweighed the energy costs for drying

Private enterprise a truly terrible thing. Washing machines, many other appliances and goods still the price they were many years ago.

Council rates increased hundreds of times, whilst services got worse and worse.

We have a family firm a couple of miles away, first established in the 1930s. They repair and sell all electrical items, anything from big tellies and cookers, to wall sockets, plugs, light bulbs and cables. Always very helpful and prompt, just as you describe.
