Hooray for TLC Plumbing & Utility
by TLC Plumbing & Utility , 09/26/2013
September 7, 2013 TLC Plumbing and Utility came to my home in Albuquerque and replaced a capacitor (fancy name for a glorified battery) and my refrigeration system in our house air conditioner resumed working beautifully. TLC had the identical replacement capacitor on its truck and fixed my unit during that one visit. TLC Charged me $105.00 for its labor and $35.00 for a new capacitor plus tax. Before TLC another company came to my home and told me it had a capacitor on its truck and its cost was $231.00, just for the capacitor, and another $79.00 for labor. I told that man I couldn't afford $231.00 for the capacitor and he said his price was $30.00 cheaper than the supply house would charge me. I said I still couldn't afford it and said goodbye to him. I called the supply house and was told a capacitor would not cost more than $50.00.TLC gave me a free estimate and they got the job because they gave me an honest estimate and an honest deal. I've learned you have to shop around when it comes to home air conditioning systems, but I trust TLC and its technician, Frank Nieto. Thank you TLC.

These incompetent fools only make things worse. They do things that mess things up and leave without saying a word. The city's water department has had to come and fix the chaos they left behind various times. Do not hire them, they do not care; they just want your money.
The Best Service At a Reasonable Price

We, well I had called another plumber, agains my wifes advice. They showed up totally unprepared to unclog our kitchen sink. My wife then called TLC because she had seen their trucks. They showed up promptly the next day. The guy worked for an hour trying to unclog the sink, couldn't get it and said he'd be back the next day. Of course we're seeing dollar signs, especially when he said the clog was way deep and there were cases where floors had to be dug up. The next day he showed up with reenforcements. One guy extra and then later another guy with a different machine. The three of them worked for two hours. They were nice, polite, even funny and eventually they unclogged the drain. Then checked the bathtup drain as well. The following day one of their furnace guys came and worked on our furnace as we'd been having problems with that too. He needed a part, which he picked up on his way to work the next day, then finished the job. Total bill $280.00. Total experience, Priceless.
Poor Customer Service
by J&C Auto Albuquerque NM , 12/18/2012
First, I was stood up twice because they had a bigger job. Second, the plumber lied about calling me. He never called. Third, as a real estate agent, I will never use TLC plumbing for anything nor will I recommend them. I can not believe the run around I have gotten from their customer service department. In my opinion, they are just out to cause problems, and issues that do not exist.

Wake up TLC! I have contacted you three times now about your drivers having no concern for the general public's safety. I am writing this after this afternoon being the third time your drivers have risked my safety and general well-being while they are on the road. These are not little Smart Cars they drive; these are commercial vehicles that are not designed as sports cars either. I hope this serves as a legal warning that you have been notified about your unsafe drivers. Please wake up before someone gets killed!
TLC standing behind their work

TLC came out to repair plumbing and ceiling plaster. The technician was courteous and professional. He explained how he was going to accomplish the job prior to doing any work. After acquiring my approval, he proceeded with the work, and upon completion confirmed my approval. I was delighted with his work ethic and professionalism and will remain a TLC customer in the future.
Prompt, Excellent Service

When my hot water heater died unexpectedly I called TLC on a friend's recommendation after another person stood me up - twice. It was terrific to have Mike show up that afternoon on time, replace the part, and fill out a detailed bill. He could just as easily have told me I needed to replace the whole thing and I would have been clueless. I really appreciated the honesty, promptness, and thoroughness and would definitely use TLC again.
Overcharged and left hidden damage
by scorched , 06/18/2013
They came out to find a leak under my slab. It took them a long time to find it. The gas they put in the lines to find it caused problems with junk blocking the valves and water hammer. They fixed the problem, but damaged another pipe that started leaking 3 years later. Needless to say, I did not call them back. The new plumber found and fixed the problem in about 1/4 of the time and for about 1/4 of the charge. I would only recommend them to an enemy. Even then, maybe not.

I called for an appointment to have someone look at my electric panel and plumbing issues. Two appointments were required for the different issues. At the electrical appointment the tech took five minutes to look at the panel, decided it was not up to code but said it was ok to leave as is because it was safe and in good condition. I was then presented with a $100 bill for the 'inspection.' I was not aware the appointment would cost and said so to the tech. I cancelled the plumbing appointment because I don't know if they'll try to charge me again. Should've been up front about the charge. What other surprises would there be?

Well, I am tired of dealing with the smaller plumbing companies such as the individual proprietors and decided I was going to call a larger company. I searched on-line for plumbing companies and remembered I see TLC trucks all over the place. However, after reading the reviews here I think I will pass on TLC. Not everyone can be pleased 100% of the time and there will always be unhappy customers but still...look at these reviews. Wow.
