Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). Experts aren't employees / agents of Just Answer. We are independent service providers using the Site to sell their Expert knowledge to Customers. I strive to provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service, let me know what's needed from me so your pleased.

The previous tech has opted out, would you like me to help?

Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 1 year ago.

I like to stay in contact with my customers. I assume you were not pleased with me or my answer since you did not rate it leaving me feedback. Just so you know we can still work on this issue. We can pick up where we left off or start over. I hate you paid all that money for your question deposit and have left not satisfied. Would any diagrams or repair guides or a phone call help?.

Thanks Chris

I got a notification that the first person dropped off and by the time you responded I was already on the road for hours. We found the problem and fixed it in minutes. Being on the road made it difficult to respond.I didn't rate you because we never talked.

Glad you got it resolved. Since you have already paid, you can use those funds in your account here for another question.
