    Miał problemy z hydrauliką. Trzeba było szybko znaleźć mistrza. Kiedyś doradzono mi skontaktowanie się z nową usługą poszukiwania kontrahentów i skorzystanie z usługi mistrz na otomistrz
    Postanowiłem zwrócić się o pomoc do tej usługi i byłem mile zaskoczony. Znalazłem mistrza w 5 minut, następnego dnia już naprawiał moją pralkę i zrobił to bardzo szybko.
