The Wooldridge technicians were polite and knowledgeable. They got the job done right.

I called Wooldridge about an emergency before 8:00am and a technician came out right away to fix the problem. He was thorough, accommodating and very professional. His quick response helped me avoid a potential disaster.

Wooldridge saved me time and money by helping me with a minor problem over the phone. Most companies would insist on sending someone out smallest of problems, inconveniencing and costing everyone.
