Stacey, all our blocked drain prices are advised to the clients before carrying out any work. We are sorry that you feel this is too expensive, especially as the price you have written is more than a fair price to have a drain cleared. We have not taken advantage of you, especially as our pricing is fully disclosed before carrying out any work. We pride ourselves on delivering a prompt and professional service, where our prices are competitive within the market. Regards, Female Choice Plumbing

It is disappointing that you have written a poor review as we would not carry out illegal work for yourself. Due to government regulations your existing 400 litre could not be installed as you are not allowed to install hot water heats any larger than 250 litres if it is electric. We advised you of this and wrote this on your invoice. You advised you would see if your brother could do the work which is obviously illegal and we are unable to compete with this. You advised us that you did not want a price as he would do this himself. All of the above was documented on your invoice and we cannot be expected to carry out illegal work under our license, which is against regulations. 738382

Great Service

Chris came out and answered any questions I had about the job and what he quoted clearly and in a friendly manner. Ended up changing other taps over as they were in similar conditions and made use of zero down interest free. I would definitely call Chris out again.

Far too expensive

For replacing my toilet and cistern they charged $1080 plus $80.30 call out. Felt ripped off. The reason why I chose this plumber because the title suggested that they wont rip females off, and my normal plumber wasn't available. I reckon I could have got this job done for only $500 tops. The plumber arrived at my house at 10.00am, then went to purchase the toilet from their store nearby, and finished the job at 12.30pm. Pretty much 1 hour of this was travel time (picking the toilet up). To be fair the worker was cordial enough and the job done was okay, but gosh felt a bit ripped off. No tiling was required. Wont be using this franchise company again in the future. Just of interest you can purchase a toilet for $150 in the local hardware store.

We replaced your faulty toilet suite complete and gave you a price straight from our price book which you approved and signed for before carrying out the work. Our prices are competitive and it is saddening to see you have written a bad review, especially as we gave you a fixed price before even doing the work to which you agreed. We pride ourselves on the trades people we send and feel that we are definitely value for money for the service we provide. Regards, Female Choice PlumbingGee it took a long time to reply to this. I was desperate when I chose you because my own plumber was unwell. Your costs are far too high.

Will not attend a residence without guaranteed parking

I have used Female Choice previously and been happy with the service. This time, when I tried to book a call out, I was told they could not attend if I could not “guarantee parking”. I was also told that the van could not go into an undercover parking spot. So, if (like me) you are one of the more than 2.6 million people living in Melbourne who doesn’t have off-street, open-air parking (ie. a driveway) you will need to find a different plumber.

Aaron, thank you for your feedback, however I feel it is fair that if a customer is unable to provide parking for our work vehicle, that we are able to decline attending. We are regularly attending jobs within the Melbourne CBD and customers are able to provide a parking space somewhere near the property whether it be a loading zone or nearby car park. As plumber are carrying tools and material, we need to be able to park within a close proximity to where the work is being carried out. We are sorry that we are unable to assist you in this instance. Regards, Female Choice Plumbing

Good rates for a Saturday & nice man

Nice man, completely non-intimidating, did the tap change efficiently and for a very reasonable price, especially given it was a Saturday morning. I'll recommend them to my friends, especially my women friends.

I highly recommend Dennis & the Female Choice Plumbing service!

Personable, understanding but quite decisive with his advice. Dennis advised me not to spend over $3,000 on the new taps that I had chosen because he did not recommend them and that the ones I have are good and just needed servicing. He listened to all my questions and took them seriously and carried out his job efficiently and without any mess. He checked the hot water service, fixed the toilet, replaced the shower head and fixed the taps. Thank you!

Thank you Rachel, We find as a emergency plumber our prices are comparable and in most cases better that other emergency call out service. Thank you for your positive feedback. Customer Service Manager Female Choice Plumbing 600759

Would never use them ever again

Plumber didn't come equipped with the right tools, charged 1.5 hour of travel time to buy the material. Took advantage of my mum who couldn't understand what was going on. Did a shonky job and gave me a bill for over a $1,000 to change a tap & a flush! Did I mention their labour cost is almost $200 an hour which is significantly higher than the market rate?
