William A. McLaughlin - Handyman Reviews (1)
On Sept 12,2012 I entered a verbal contract for household repairs with William A McLaughlin. I entrusted him with $200 cash to purchase a replacement part for a water heater for a tenant's unit and to price a garbage disposal for my unit. On Sept 13,2012 he returned to remove the water heater part so he would purchase the correct piece. He let me know he did not have enough to purchase both the part and the garbage disposal in one trip so I entrusted him with an additional $160. He has never returned. He has kept the part and the monies. He has been phoned numerous times daily and almost always told he is out. Messages were left each time yet he refused to return any call. Two weeks later I caught him at home and spoke with him on the phone. I told him to return at least the water heater part that day, he said he would but he did not. Our agreement was that if the repair was beyond his abilities he would declare so. I would then be able to hire a contractor to repair or install a new unit, dependant on the part Mr. McLaughlin has kept. I trusted his opinion and his word as this is his livilyhood and I have known of Mr. McLaughlin for years, through family.
