Raw Action Painting in Gaven, Gold Coast
I booked this bloke through Airtasker to do a small job, (just one days work at best) for a time sensitive job at my elderly parents house. Job was to paint ceilings in small bedroom & refresh small soffit area on adjoining private patio. My parents had guests arriving, so wanted the job completed in a timely manner, allowing 1-7 days to do so.
On the scheduled Saturday to arrive, Corey did not show up. When called he did not pick up. When messaged repeatedly he finally responded saying his car was not running & so couldn't show up. I asked if he wanted to cancel the job, as I really was under the gun to find an alternative painter if he couldn't do it. Corey agreed to contact me on the Monday with the view to Wednesday as an option to start or hopefully complete the job. Despite many calls & messages, he finally replied by TEXT on Tuesday night at 6.36pm that he could not make it the following day as indicated, saying he would reschedule for Saturday 9am. I messaged him on Thursday night, Friday afternoon & evening, with no reply. No surprise, on Saturday Corey was a no show. He did not respond to any messages or calls, & instead has left the money for this job tied up in Airtasker escrow for 48-hours & has not agreed to allow the job to be cancelled. The job needed to be completed by Sunday. Airtasker will not release funds until Tuesday pending review, so job will not be done for guests arrival on Sunday.
I am a very understanding person & happy to make allowances for life difficulties, but Corey's lack of communication, absolute thoughtless ignorance at the position this puts my parents in, by his lack of care or concern to push the 'agree to cancel' button on Airtasker & release the funds, meant this job now will have to be put off for several weeks. Though in some ways I am glad because if this is the level of professionalaim Corey applies to his work, I cannot imagine how bad the outcome would be. VERY VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED! I would strongly urge anyone considering Corey or this company to do any work, ensure you have a back up plan or simply do yourself a favour & find someone else!
