MasterCare - Service from mastercare

I have a contract with Mastercare and logged a repair for my Samsung Microwave on 26/2/2021 and to date I am still waiting. The communication from their Cape Town workshop is non existent. I only get a response, waiting on part, when I phone.
The item was collected on 2/3/2021 but the parts need for the repair was only ordered more than a week later.

MasterCare - account

On 11 Feb I requested to terminate my contract (EC324586) with Mastercare due to poor services. I received an sms confirming the cancellation, but the monthly fee was deducted until 2 September. After numerous letters and calls I had to close my bank account to stop the transactions. I requested that my money be paid back for the period from March to September (6 months!). I've had no reaction from Mastercare on this.

MasterCare - debit order

I contacted your employee Raven to cancel my late mother's policy. We agreed telephonically and on email that my last debit order will be on June 2019 but i see i was debited on July 2019 as well. I contacted him 05 July and he said he will refund and speak to the finance department. I emailed on the 9th, 12th and today the 15th for a update and got no reply. This is absolutely absurd and unprofessional! Your staff are a disgrace! Raven is so quick to try and get me to stay on the policy to collect more money but when I canceled the policy and want my money back, this is the treatment I get? Mastercare staff are pathetic. Very poor reflection on the company!

MasterCare - unethical behaviour

Hi -I had an unpleasant experience with the protector policy added to my mastercare policy.
Julia Mosalo of matercare (document attached) phoned me on 18 September 2018 to update my policy - afterwards she offered me the protector policy at 45 rand a month for plumbing and electrical emergencies.
She FAILED to mention:

1. A waiting period before I can claim
2. only 2 claims per year allowed
3. have to wait 6 months to cancel policy
4. there was NO mention of the required cooling off period

These conditions are NOT listed in the contract (attached)- a very unethical practice on the part of mastercare.

If I had been made aware of these aspects I would have NOT taken out the policy. I found these aspects after long and dragged out conversations with mastercare and protector.

Please Cancel the protector part of my mastercare policy with IMMEDIATE effect.

Regards

MasterCare - washing machine spinner pump

I have (had) a maintenance contract with mastercare for years. I reported my washing machine was given a job no and then no further communication was received. Two weeks later I sent dudu an email to query what was happening, whom forwarded it to jacqueline (dead end). After another couple of emails I was informed that doreen had phoned me (no record of a call) to let me know I need to pay in an access amount of r559. Really! Why is there a maintenance contract? The pump only cost r200 at bergens. This I know because a couple of years ago the pump packed up and after waiting 3 months for mastercare to come fix it, we ended up buying the part and fixing it ourselves. I have now cancelled the contract only to be told I must wait 6 months. Forget it

MasterCare - bosch dishwasher job card: car 65810-44

On the 19 December 2017 I lodged a claim and received the above job card number. I have been trying to call the offices of mastercare and the phone just rings. When eventually someone answered the phone I was told that she cannot help me as the service for the repair was outsourced to another company and that I would need to contact them. Every time I call there is a different excuse.

I have made several calls and have had no response from them. I feel this is so unfair as my premiums are being deducted every month yet I am not getting the service from MasterCare.

Can someone please get back to me regarding a response as to when I can expect my machine to be replaced alternatively I will go to the Umbudsman.

MasterCare - cancellation bc300715ab0159

Good day I have cancelled my policy on the 31st of October yet Master care still deducted a premium this month stating that I did not give them 30 days! First they said I can't cancel if I had service in the last 6 months - last service was in February 2017 then they changed their story to the 30 days. Today 29/11/2017 they took December premium and the...

MasterCare - service and not answering emails and hang up on phone calls

Acc no 0028869
We requested that this account must be closed for we did not receive any service with our last claim. therefore we asked for the debit order to be stopped.
The d/o was stopped for 3 months and then it was deducted again. We phoned and inquired the d/o. They said we were in arrears. We explained that we requested the cancellation of the policy. We did send an e-mail to niselle but with no reply and still the d/o is been deducted.
There went another d/o of this month and I feel it is very unprofessional of the company to take advantage of pensioners lilke this.

We request that this order is cancelled as of from today 18 September 2017 and if another d/o is deducted, we have no choice but to consult an attorney.

Regards.

MasterCare - kelvinator dishwasher

Good morning

1.On the 5th February 2017 I phone and reported my dishwasher that "tripped the electricity". - ref: car 33848/8 on thursday the 16th feb 2017 a guy came and said it is now fixed.

2. Friday 17th feb 2017 I packed the dishwasher and within 1 minute it makes
a siren sound and starts flickering - don't even start a cycle.
saterday the 18th February 2017 I phone and receive a new ref no:
car 3564/8. On the 22/02/2017 someone from early bird phone me and ask me if there is somebody at home - I reply that there is always someone at home. up to today the 3rd of march 2017 nobody showed up ...

3. I have tried several times this week but was holding on for ages - the one time was 27 minutes ... on my cellular phone.

4. Today the 3 March I phone again and when I give the reference number I was told "the call is closed" and give me a new ref no: car 36327/8.

I am terribly upset and this is not as you promised on your recording system as "acceptable service we provide".

I really do not think that in 2days time it will be a month that I battle and received only bad service. Nobody can blame me for being an very unhappy customer.
