Hi everyone! I have some great news I want to share with you which demonstrates the power of persistence and the kindness of others!
I’ve been desperately searching for the Husky HVLP Spray Paint Gun which Deana over at Alchemy Fine Living raves about. My Wagner is frustrating me, so it’s time to upgrade to a paint gun which is reliable and provides a consistent professional finish.
Here’s the problem.
Canadian Home Depot Stores/Website do NOT sell Husky spray guns. This wouldn’t be so bad if I could order it from HomeDept.com in the US, but they won’t ship it to a Canadian address. What’s with that?
Well I’m not one to give up easily. I’m like a dog with a bone, a kid with candy, an unfulfilled gal with her Godiva and Haagan-Dazs.
I phoned the Husky Customer Service # provided on the Home Depot site and spoke with Rochon, a Husky/Home Depot Representative. She was wonderful!
I explained to her how badly I wanted this paint gun. Rochon took the time to make a few phone calls on my behalf while I was on hold. The next thing I knew, she was asking for my full address so a Home Depot Husky Distributor could send me a complimentary Husky Gravity Feed HVLP Spray Gun!!
Yes… complimentary…. FREE!
I’m so looking forward to receiving it and giving it a go!
To Rochon, and the wonderful kind-hearted person who made the decision to send the Spray Gun “on good faith”, THANK YOU! You really made my day!
To my readers, don’t let “setbacks” or “no’s” deter you. Be persistent and take that extra step. It may be the next person you talk to who will help you along your way.
Have a terrific Tuesday and talk to you soon.
***Note - They did NOT know I blog & write reviews. Home Depot simply just has the BEST customer service!
**Update ~ I thought I would update you all because every time I spray a piece, I get some questions on my spray gun. It’s been exactly 7 years since I wrote this post and I’m STILL using the same Husky Paint Gun.
Granted, I don’t spray finish all my furniture but I have been spray top coating all my pieces for some time. This paint gun has had ample use and it still works amazing… although it doesn’t look great anymore..lol. I’m meticulous cleaning the inside after I finish spraying but not the outside. Besides that, I will be buying a new paint cup and filters and they DO sell them at Canadian Home Depots now! 🙂
