Beware of Neil Fallon electrical
My split system air-conditioning unit had stopped working so I asked Brisbane's Neil Fallon electrical to look at it. The firm does advertise that it does repairs.
They charged me $232 to diagnose and quote on the fault -- all for an hour's work. Work at that rate did not interest me so I sent the guy away immediately and gave the job of replacing the unit to someone else. I think they outsmarted themselves there.
UPDATE: I note that Fallons did give me a quote for a new installation -- of over $2,000. The firm I finally gave the job to -- Brisbane Air are doing it for $500 less than that. And I know from past experience that their work is high quality. Instructive.
