Horrible customer service, overpriced jobs

published

The response time was good. Didn't want to proceed until we paid 50% deposit of extremely overpriced job - leaking pipe in laundry. One of the contractors didn't know how to adjust water pressure on the hands free tap, we had to ask him to read the manual. The promised Certificate of Compliance has never arrived, the contractor didn't return calls, their call centre staff didn't want to help with any inquiries and hang up on me. I would NOT recommend their service to anyone.

Expensive AF

published

More than double the price of other plumbing services. They were responsive and come out but the price was simply exorbitant. $3,300 to install a $1,000 hot water service. Avoid.

Incompetent or didn't wanna be there

published

Had my partner call these guys at 9pm on a Sunday due to a pipe leaking in my downstairs ceiling. They proceeded to say it was storm damage, despite upstairs being dry as a bone, and turned water back on ignoring the obvious spraying noise inside the walls and doubling the damage to the house. Then charged me $500 for the privilege. Other plumbers found the pictured leak in 5mins and fixed in under 30mins however the thousands of dollars of damage is still being fixed 2 months on. Avoid at all cost.

Ruthless

published

I was taken advantage of and overcharged. I had a roof leaf with the first rain after they did the Capping and Ridging. As you can see from the photos they failed to clean the gutters as they promise to do with their warranty. I now need to pay someone to clean gutters, fix plaster and find where the leak is coming from. I paid $4,100 for the job and another $374 for them to come out and say their job has no faults. They won’t respond to calls or emails. This company should not be operating. They didn’t even paint the roof. Took their money and ran.

This company is not trustworthy

I have booked this company to do the repair. After paid deposit, they didn't show up. Have to call them to arrange another time, after 4 times without showing up, have to cancel the job and ask to refund they refused. Beware this company very

Deceptive practices

published

When I engaged these guys to fix a leaking bathroom sink hose, they told me the quote was so high ($780) because the parts were expensive. But when I received the breakdown after payment (which you have to ask for) I was charged $320 in labour for just half an hour of work, and a $110 project management fee amongst other unnecessary fees. The parts were only $106! Ridiculously overpriced and deceptive company.

not happy

published

not happy} installed a new hot water tank which was good but the stupid plumbers disconnected my evaporative cooling system which didn't need to be done . Had to get the evaporative service man out to see that was wrong then we discovered what the plumber had done, emailed the manager to explained, and asked for a refund for the call out fee which i had to pay the evaporative service man. The manger { {refused} not very nice unprofessional should have payed for the call out fee. And also the plumbers took out one brick out of the wall which never got replaced , which now i have to try and fix . people should think twice about this company dont recommend them

This firm has Doubtful business ethics

published

Had blocked storm water drains. This company used camera to check and then quoted over $16000 to repair, including no option but to remove several trees, garden furniture and fencing. Nearly fell for it as the job had to be done. But got three other plumbing companies in for independent quotes; they ranged from about $1000 to a maximum of $3,500 dependent on extent of blockage. Went with a genuine skilled plumber who did the job in 3 hours, no damage, for $1,300. ALWAYS CHECK quotes!! This firm claims to have qualified tradies; they are either incompetent or dishonest.

Good Work

published

We needed an emergency fix for our noisy gas meter. Found Priority one from an newspaper advertisement. Rang the company and the plumber arrived at the property in the afternoon on the same day. After an thorough assessment which lasted an hour the plumber informed me that there was multiple issues and offered me a quote to carry out major work to fix the issue. The price was bit higher than what a one man company would offer, but you get what you pay for. After accepting the quote and making a deposit the plumber ordered the materials. Two plumbers worked together and job was completed the following day.
I would certainly You them again.

Is it possible to give a 0 star review?

published

Absolutely appalling. I had no hot water and the callout took 1.5 hours to quote $3,800 to replace the gas hot water system. I was not happy with the price so I called another plumber. The second plumber took 2 minutes to work out that the system was not broken - it had no gas supply! The second plumber would have charged me $2,000 for the same job if it was required. I then researched more and the going rate was anywhere from $1,800 to $2,200! For a plumber not to check the supply is a pretty big oversight and to try and charge $1,800 more than the market rate is appalling.

I wish I'd read all of these other bad reviews before calling Priority One Plumbing!

Job Well Done.

Really happy with the work done.
Would have been a 5 star had the plumber not forgotten his tools behind which made me an hour late for work.
Happy with the company. :-)

Ripped off and bad customer service.

published

Paid $1000+ to fixed bathtub about 6 month ago. Reason for the high cost was taking out the bathtub. Leaked again and called them to re-attend it and asked them whether warranty. Without an inspection, they said it must be something else and said the installation was not Australian standard and perhaps i should change all the connection. It was something that i did not know about and asked them whether they can give me some discount on cost of removing bathtub. Rejected and quoted $2000+ to replace connecting hoses. I asked my agent to organise the plumber and finished the job less than $600, and I just realised i get ripped off.

Never showed Up

published

Had a huge hole in my roof, they turned up and quoted then nothing. 3 weeks later and 2 failed promises when pestered for an ETA, their playing hard ball demanding I pay them for ridiculous costs for activities they simply never did.

Avoid At All Costs

Watch out when getting quotes as they have 7 different business titles all run from the same offices. Search their ABN to get an idea of the business titles. Sams and this one Priority One seem to be the big two titles.

They also seem to pay for reviews as a lot of them look dodgy as hell. Search "ACT Supreme Court Your Local Plumbing" and you'll see why ACT Fair Trading is interested in them.

Very disappointed

published

Got these guys in Queanbeyan to fix a leakage ... Terrible service .Very unprofessional . Didnt fix the problem but just turn off the water supply. Didnt even touched the leakage pipe . Reported this to their base and got an abusive call from the same plumber. Better to hire a Blind Monkey instead of these guys. Big no no to these guys . Sent them mail regarding their service but didnt get response yet.

November 18th 2019 Update: Rip off /Very disappointed

Called these guys to fix water leakage ... they charged me $299 just to turn off the water supply... didnt even touched the pipe.... big no to these guys total tip off.

You charged $1050 dollars to 'not move' a sink that you made my friends Asian girlfriend to move aside from a outside access drain for a tap, even though she stated it was the toilet that was blocked. Then you used a camera but could not find any problem (even though she stated it was not the storm water pipe, it was the sewage area), You then opened up a 40mm inspection point and then send the camera into the PIPE that was not the problem, She stated it was the area under the toilet where the poo and toilet paper go. He stated he could not access that area, but he could for $4000 dollars and $1000 dollars cheaper if she signed up for the next day. This will NOT be paid, we will be seeking legal guidance and from most of the reviews of your business, you conduct business with no morals and try to take advantage from people who don't deserve it.
