So far no signs of the actuall installer being compensated any extra for this service.
Not a great issue in a major town where there are plenty of jobs and Technicians, but in a Rural area for example where the technician covers an area of 125kms in all directions from his home base it is already proving a challenge.
Example, first call 100 kms East of home, next call an "Express" installation, 100kms East of home, now requires the Tech to drive 200kms to reach it, then his remaining calls are back 50 & 60 kms West of homebase.
Lots of extra driving time, lots of additional costs and as I say, as yet no additional compensation.
Come on Bell TV, you are getting $60, so share the wealth.......
It also raises many interesting potential scenario's, for example;
What happens if the Customer is not Home.? Tech still drive 200kms, and gets paid NOTHING AT ALL.
What happens if the home is Rented and the tenant does not have a Letter Of Permission.? Tech still drive 200kms, and gets paid NOTHING AT ALL.
I am sure you can see my points.
Will Bell TV still bill the Customer under the above scenarios.? I would guess no, as they never have penalised any potential customer for failed installations that are their fault.
