Free Oven for Parts

Bruce from Morningside

Have a cat who brings vermin into the house which escape and hide in our ovens. Needless to say Insurance does not cover "Vermin" for some reason.

Needless to say Insurance does not cover "Vermin" for some reason. So I have one Eurotech electric oven with a gas cook top waiting for some one in need. Its 3 years old and will be a challenging jig-saw if you want the whole thing. The gas top, door, Stainless Steel panels etc are fine. Steam Clean and new insulation may fix the body. The whole has been under wraps through the Covid saga there so no worries there. There could be a free cat involved in this deal as well.

Price and Time Certainty is our way.

Why is the Construction industry the only one, where clients have to accept that the budget and delivery date will both be blown out?

Why do costs have to exceed agreed budget?
Why is project Fixed Pricing so rare?
Why is it ok for clients to receive low initial estimates, only to then be charged way over through Charge Up costs?
Why is it ok to run over time and miss Christmas delivery?
