Urban Clap - Never use any service from this cheat company

Urban Clap is just a fraud agency. I used it for first time. For repair of ceiling fan. The website boosts of qualified technicians and timely service anywhere in Delhi ncr. The site doesn't mention that it's service technicians do only advisory services without repairs.
The electrician calls me and asks whether winding is faulty or capacitor. And that in such a case urban clap will not service. He says if anything is faulty rate will have to be checked from market which is over and above market price. Then he tells me if I can get it done at less price, then he will give 20 fans to me for repairs. Shocking!!
I asked him what's the capacity of capacitor in farads and he doesn't know what is farad.
The technician argues that urban clap does only 'minor' repairs. Website doesn't mention what minor means.
Never ever trust Urban Clap. Cheat extortion company. Only ads no qualification. more

It is not only the case with Urban Clap. There a lot many such service providers who just collect money in the name of "visiting charges" and do no servicing and repairing of the gadget. I would like to quote my personal experience: My fridge went out of service with the gas having been exhausted. I went to a local electrical shop and the man there gave me the name and contact number of an air conditioning engineer, Shiv Kumar, and he also called him on his mobile phone to attend to my complaint. On a number of phone calls Shiv Kumar told me his charges as @Rs.400 for the visit and consultation - he would tell me whether the fridge required re-filling of the gas or change of the compressor, etc. I settled with him to please check and tell me if the gas refilling now will make the machine last for at least 2-3 year as I do not expect myself to last more than this many years. I am already 82+ and frequently in and out of the hospital. He re-charged the gas and changed the compressor (a second-hand one which was not contracted originally he never informed that he would replace with a new one.). Finally, he re-charged and collected additionally Rs3000 and went away. The machine never worked, and I have been calling him on phone when earlier he should to respond and now he has stopped to pick my phone calls. I believe this is a practice which must be shared with participants and find out if anyone has experienced or have known existence of such a practice in the market. more  
A normal electrician charges fixed amount to visit and does repair work. Any parts to be fitted are charged extra (at MRP) or else he asks me to get the part from the market.... more  
My experience in Bengaluru is quite the opposite. On calling them for my faulty boiler in the bathroom, he gave me the name of the technician who was to attend the complaint. But he told me that a minimum charge of Rs 250 would be charged even if the technician visited but you decided not to avail his services. The technician came a bit later, but solved my problem. He himself went out to bring some electrical part, but since it was very costly, he got the old one repaired and fit it back. For this he charged me extra which was reasonable, gave me his mobile no. (for free service if required in next 24 hours). The boiler is working even today after 4~5 months. more  
known devil is better than the unknown more  
It is really surprising to note that the technicians do only advisory services. It should provide technicians and provide repairing work. more
