Some of you might remember a posting I made 6 months or so ago about sending Big Ted of for a checkup - at the time we queried the price we were charged as it seemed excessive and Big Ted did not seem to run any differently either. Now I know it was excessive price we paid as we have recently sent Big Ted to Carl Jedamzik Automotive in Hobart - for starters Big Ted purrs like a kitten - no more stalling at traffic lights - I knew it wasn't my driving technique! Tony told Richard from Jedamzik what had been done prior to Big Ted so we weren't doubling up on things. We had on order from the other mechanics a "Dust skirt" for the engine and at the time cancelled the order as we could not afford to go ahead with it - the same part Jedamzik was half the price! Tony only dealt with Richard at the time - when the Invoice arrived I phoned them up and asked for Richard so I could pay the Invoice and rave to him how happy we were - as soon as I said who was speaking (only using my christian and surname) the next words out of his mouth were - "How's the Kombi going?" - we proceed to have an in depth chat about the Kombi - at the end of the conversation he said to me "Say Hi to Tony". So I would like to recommend if you require good old fashioned Customer Service and excellent mechanical skills that you don't need a second morgage to pay for Jedamzik is the place for you. Ask for Richard. Please note I am in no way affiliated with this business or their employees - just a very satisfied customer with a Kombi that goes like a dream.
