Mantellato Electrical Contracting
I had a powerpoint installed and light disconnected as part of my bathroom renovations. Rob was great, very punctual, and completed the job promptly before I had to go to work. Reasonably priced and very personable. Thanks Rob.
Great attitude and efficiency
Our bathroom pipe was leaking, called a few plumbers before, they were giving me some ridiculous time frames, when I was about to give up, I ended up contacting these guys. They came in the next day and fixes it very fast and at a very reasonable cost.
The first honest and quick plumber I've met.
This will be my first ever review. After 39 years owning my own property it's the first time I've been lucky enough to meet an honest, reasonable and prompt plumber. They arrived 10 minutes early, diagnosed my hot water system had died and also helped me get a replacement free under warantee. Thank you so much guys.
Great Experience and Great Price
Thank you The Local Tradies! I dont know how real or reliable most reviews are these days, but I do know how good the service I recieved. I had just had another tradie run away with my money leaving me high and dry. The Local Tradies swooped in like my gaurdian angels helps me with my build quickly and at a reasonable price. Theres not many companies that would help like you did , so thank you Eddie and Sam H your help kept a roof on my families heads. God bless you guys
Job was not completed and the builder ran away with our money
We engaged [name removed], Melbourne Vic who is registered as a builder to do our landscape. In his written quote, he agreed that the price quoted would include the construction of the merbau decking, garden beds, screening, planting of the plants and exposed aggregate and lawn on the designated area as per the plan. He constructed everything in August 2017 and we had paid him in full that he agreed that he would come back later on to complete the oiling job and apply the sealer on the exposed aggregate as he advised previously in the written...quote. We have tried numerous times to ask him when he could come back to finish off the oiling job and apply for the sealer. He kept on stating that he was busy and never wanted to commit a date. We waited for months and months and he never turned up. We then have asked him to pay us back the cost of the oiling and sealing job so that we could appoint a tradie to finish off the job and he refused to pay us back and advised us that he would come back. To date he has never come back to complete the job. We finally asked him to pay us back just the decking oil and we would just do the oiling ourselves and he also refused. He is such a dishonest and irresponsible person and we trusted him as he was my spouse's friend. He does have a facebook and Instagram account advertising his business. For those are out there who needed landscape or renovation or building to be done, please ensure you DO NOT engage [name removed] to do any jobs as he would run away with your money that you have paid and never come back and left the job incomplete.

Such unreliable service
Very unreliable service!!! On 18th Aug 2017, I found The Local Tradies Plumbing on google to fix our hot water pressure. However the problem was not solved at all!! I contacted them on Saturday morning and was advised no plumbers working on weekend. So I contacted them again on Monday morning and was advised someone would come after 3pm. I took an early leave and waited them at home but no one showed up by 5pm. Then I contacted them again and was advised they would call me back. No one called me back so I called them once again. I was advised t...hat [name rmeoved] would come between 12pm-2pm on Tuesday. No one showed up by 5pm on Tuesday. Once more, I asked my husband to call them and was advised someone would come on Wednesday morning between 9am-10am. I took a leave and have been waiting at home. No one came in the morning. We contacted them and they apologized and promised someone would be here between 1pm-2pm. By the end, no one showed up today. I contacted them and was told the plumber was sick and could come on Friday. After that, they didn't pick up my call. Such expensive but unreliable service once you have made payment!!! Cheating customer over and over!!!
Do not engage the local tradies for plumbing works. After our solar panel cracked in the cold weather, there employee (Sam) advised just bypassing the solar altogether. This involved capping the solar panel water pipe at both ends which took a matter of about 6 minutes and the cost was $450. Their website also advertised no call out fees, but upon receipt of their invoice which was received via email after they had left, there was a $49 callout fee on the invoice. After numerous calls and emails which have gone unreturned and getting the ru...naround from their receptionist, this callout fee is still yet to be refunded. The hot water service is now playing up, and after a promise that they would attend to rectify the issue they have not turned up, not even a phone call to advise they could not make it. Simply horrible service once you have made payment

Terrible service - almost cost my landlord $2,500 in error!! Stay away!!
We found The Local Tradies Plumbing website on google and thought they looked reputable. The hot water was not working to the rear of the house (there are 2 hot water units) - so we organised The Local Tradies Plumbing to visit the property to assess the issue. The next day they inspected the issue, and advised that the hot water unit was old, hadn't been maintained properly and needed to be replaced at a cost of $2,500!! For good measure we decided to get a second opinion from a plumber we have used before. Thank god we did. Our usual plumber ...inspected the issue and advised within about 30 seconds flat that the reason the hot water wasn't working was because the gas company had in fact cut the gas to the property due to lack of payment of a bill! The first thing our plumber did and what every good/licensed plumber should do is check the gas meter!! There was a note from the utility company saying they had cut the gas supply. SO, why didn't The Local Tradies plumber check this as the first step?? They are supposed to be licensed plumbers! Terrible operators. We have emailed them twice to make a complaint and to discuss the issue and they will not get back to us! STAY AWAY!!
