In the first phone call, in which my wife told you that the unit can be installed next week, you affirmed that the delivery can be around that time. A half hour later, In the telephone call from the architect, you said that the delivery will now take many weeks. Is this the way a center in Finland punishes its clients for trying to have a problem set straight? We are not used to subservient behavior in the other part of Europe. We will not get used to it here; nor will we accept this medieval way of (not) having consideration with clients. So we (including our three young children) do not want to undergo ----NoName punishment - we did not order our heating system this summer to now have you let us to freeze to death. We want our heating finished in the period you promised during our first telephone call this morning. That means that the material we ordered last summer should be delivered in a human(e) time-span and fashion.
Then there are your two demands for ordering the material: is an e-mail not lawful, because we should fax you instead of e-mailing it? If so - wasn't our order for the convectors lawful then? Concerning this incident: our architect was surprised that you did not warn us that the ordering of an installation of these convectors is usually done by an --- man; and that you let us order it anyway from you directly. You should be more accustomed to the way things work in Finland than we are. And it is your duty to give your clients good advice.
The consideration you have for clients is not commendable. We recommended your center to our friend at Saksala Art center in Haukivuori. We shall keep her, and not only her*, informed of our experiences with your center. You are letting us pay you profit on the convectors, while we are paying our plumber the same amount because it is in his price - not to mention three companies raising the price of the Italian producer - but we suppose that is business..
