Confloozed gr8 help

I just had a last minute problem with my house, needed a handyman to appear, and in came Confloozed and did a top job at a good price. And he looks like he should be in Nickelback/ some other rock legend outfit! Win win.

Re: Confloozed gr8 help

What do you think the going rate is for a handyman? We've had someone offer to do work for us for 40 francs an hour.

A handyman who is registered and insured is going to cost more than chf 40.

Re: Confloozed gr8 help

Confloozed is a standup guy and I won't hesitate to say that he's one of the few people out there who would put others before him if it means helping out a friend. Needless to say, I vouch for him.

Re: Confloozed gr8 help

Another big thumbs up for Confloozled. He helped us move to Germany last week, and was an absolute star. He and his mate worked really hard, were super-quick, and really friendly and easy-going. All our stuff arrived clean and undamaged (which is more than can be said for the "specialist" movers we used to get to Switzerland). And he was nice to my dogs.

All in all, a great guy. Pleasant, efficient and reliable.

You should see what he did to my pet goat...

Re: Confloozed gr8 help

Has anybody heard from confloozed lately? He's MIA and we have an outstanding arrangement... His profile says he hasn't logged in since the 12th, which is unusual for him. Wondering if he's skipped town.

Needless to say, I'm unimpressed and don't quite share the sentiment of this thread, but I'll wait to hear anything from/about him before going into the whole story.

Re: Confloozed gr8 help

You might want to remove the EFer's first name, Fridge, as it's probably not on here with his permission. Just sayin'.

It's all over his profile page already, and has been referenced many times in past posts.

But sure, I'll get rid of it.

Thanks, as it's still his decision if he wants his name on here or not.

Yep, well he's posted it himself before.

Just wait until I get a confirmation that he's gone. The details on what he's left me hanging on will be much, much worse than his generic first name.

Re: Confloozed gr8 help

I think you should give him the chance to explain, you never know what may have happened. Just my two rappen.

Hence why the story isnt live, yet.

He's had since October to deal with this, I've been more than understanding of his situation, but dropping off the radar is just too far.
