The Goldilocks Principle (and rats!)
Last month, my daughter saw a rat.
She was in our (very messy) garage with our miniature schnauzer Comet, and it scuttled right in front of them.
Comet successfully ignored generations of breeding and let the rat go, choosing to focus on a manky tennis ball instead.
Luckily, one of our clients specialises in pest extermination, so – after witnessing Comet’s failure – we called out Vermatech and they arrived the next day.
Three weeks later the rats were gone, and we were under no illusions about how they’d got into the garage – the old wooden door frame, which clearly needed replacing without delay.
I contacted three companies – two from Checkatrade, and one via recommendation.
All three came round. All were likeable, knowledgeable, could provide what I wanted – a grey anthracite roller door – and could do it for about the same price and in the same time frame.
I was dreading getting the quotes and having to make a choice because they were all so similar – how was I going to make the choice?!
