Great service and on time
Tech showed up went over the issues we were having. Was able to correct one concern, but needed to order parts for the second issue. Parts were ordered while on site, and they were back in a very timely manner to make the repairs.
The service person that works on my pizza ovens is a true professional! Prior to owning a restaurant I was the service manager of a 100 person service department… And I can tell you this man is a rare find!
Overall we feel your price of replacing a $13.63 thermocouple to be ridiculous. $120/hr. travel time? Know gas and some expenses have gone up but this is very high. We have no service companies that charge us anything near that. Don't understand why your travel time is marked 3/23 when the job was done on the 24th. Then you charge mileage? Travel time should include all costs of getting there. We got charged twice for labor and don't understand that either. $60 for a half-hour labor and then $200 for an hour of labor - for what??? Wasn't here and hour and one-half!! All in all you charged us $364.25 total to replace a $13.63 thermocouple - outrageous!! To say the least we will never use you again and not recommend you to anyone.
We ordered a convection oven which the sales rep helped us pick out after listening to our needs. It was a little frustrating ordering as there was only one person who could help us and they were out of time. Still, though, he got back to me when he could. After ordering, we received realistic time frames and the next stpes for getting the oven installed. The oven arrived when they said it would, they scheduled isntallation immediately, showed up as scheduled, and provided a quality installation. We then had to deal with the rest of the invoice. They attempted to bill our card over the daily limit. When it declined, instead of flipping a lid, they politely contacted me and asked how to best work it out. They took extra time out of their day to bill our card over three days so we didn't have the extra step of contacting our bank to get a daily usage limit increase. What company anymore takes extra steps so a customer doesn't have to? Well the answer is K&D. Thank you to the whole K&D team!

at one time you only charge once for service call for the same job now you charge for every time you come back so when they come than have to order parts than we get another charge than if that doses work than we get another charge
