(Translated by Google) Unfortunately, this…
(Translated by Google) Unfortunately, this company is completely disorganized. First you are not contacted after months. If you call and provide all the necessary data, you will be transferred again and nobody will answer you. The owner can then no longer remember the telephone call and assures that an offer will be sent the same evening. After a week I checked again and again nothing happened for another 3 weeks. To top it off, after 8 months you get an offer which is overpriced.

Leider ist diese Firma völlig unorganisiert. Erst wird man nach Monaten nicht kontaktiert. Bei Anruf und Lieferung aller erforderlichen Daten wird man wieder versetzt und es meldet sich niemand zurück. Anschließend kann sich der Inhaber nicht mehr an das Telefonat erinnern und sichert die Zusendung eines Angebotes am selben Abend zu. Nach einer Woche nochmal nachgehakt und wieder passiert für weitere 3 Woche nichts. Zum Krönung bekommt man dann nach 8 Monaten ein Angebot welches überteuert ist.
