Just in case anyone actually takes the above message seriously, I thought I'd post about my experience of dealing with AFE - and I can assure you I'm neither a forum hijacker or a friend of Aria or indeed Aria himself (though I do wish I had his plumbing skills...)
I've had a leaking bathroom tap for months now and yesterday I finally got round to doing something about it. I went onto SE23-Life forum first because that's local to me, and everyone over there was raving about AFE. Then I had a peep on here and the same enthusiastic recommendations were evident. So I texted Aria to see if it was likely I could get it fixed at some point this week. And by the end of the afternoon, after a useful exchange of texts and some solid graft from his team, my leaking tap problem was fixed.
I guess the repetition of phrases (quick response, efficient workers, polite and trustworthy etc etc etc) that led to Rainbowsky's suspicion are repeated BECAUSE THEY'RE TRUE. They really do work quickly and deal with jobs swiftly and they really are polite and considerate people. And because they work so efficiently they get lots of satisfied customers who are more than happy to post a positive review - myself included who, granted, doesn't usually have much cause to come on here.
And yes, Aria did request that I post a review on here if I was pleased with the work - so what?! That's how I got his details in the first place and that's how his company thrives. In the end, everybody's happy. (Well, almost everybody... But feel free to PM me if you think it will help determine whether or not I'm a secret agent working on behalf of AFE...)
