Appliance Defects

The Auckland Local writes to members with regards to the appliance fleet. The Local has heard from members that some defects, as written in Appliance Defect Books, are not being repaired. That is, members are being called to uplift an appliance from workshops following servicing and not all noted defects have been corrected. This is quite bizarre, as the purpose of sending a vehicle for servicing is so that it can be serviced and maintained, including fixing things that are wrong with it.
