The survey results on the question of .....:

Have you ever had to make a warranty claim on failed media or anything else? Did you claim for wasted labour as well?

  • Yes ,on some frosting on the outside of the building. Guaranteed by UK Manufacturer for outdoor up to 7 years. Failed after 18months. They replaced vinyl only which we have used on other jobs. Nothing for the labour to remove. We removed and replaced with another product, not frosting at clients request.
    Now no not to use on future jobs, there is a cast frost which should do job.
  • According to the manufacturer, your time spent in rectifying their bad batches of product is irrelevant. They will replace materials to the value of the product loss only. Which is why I no longer use Avery products.
  • yes a couple of times with a different supplier each time. Yes I did claim for labour as the supplier insisted on it. They were very helpful & very fair with the warranty claim. (David, Dejay Signs)
  • No, so far, so good. A mate of mine has and he reckons it went well with the supplier - very cooperative.

A banker ran into his old friend Tom, an eighty + year old farmer, in town.

Tom had lost his wife a year or so before and rumour had it that he was marrying a 'mail order' bride.

Being a good friend, the banker asked Tom if the rumour was true.

Tom assured him that it was. The banker then asked Tom the age of his new bride to be. Tom proudly said, 'She'll be twenty-one in November.'

Now the banker, being the wise man that he was, could see that the sexual appetite of a young woman could not be satisfied by an eighty-year- old man. Wanting his old friend's remaining years to be happy the banker tactfully suggested that Tom should consider getting a hired hand to help him out on the ranch, knowing nature would take its own course.

Tom thought this was a good idea and said he would hire one that afternoon.

About four months later, the banker ran into Tom in town again.

'How's the new wife?', asked the banker.

Tom proudly said, 'Good - she's pregnant.'

The banker, happy that his sage advice had worked out, continued, 'And how's the hired hand?'

Without hesitating, Tom said, 'She's pregnant too.'

Don't ever underestimate old guys.
