Have trouble with bringing Gas home?
Then ThE uSeFuL has good news for you. If you have been to pitakotte junction you must have surely seen the grocery shop with the name “Chandrika’s Super”. A very famous shop and it was there from my small days (in 1991 I was in grade 1). It is right at the Pitakotte junction adjoining the CTB bus stop and at the beginning of the Pagoda road (the road which leads to Nugegoda). They have been dealers for Shell gas for a long time and now the management has decided to improve the level of convenience to its customers by starting Gas Home Delivery Service.
I can give my personal recommendation as I have been going to this place for a long time now. I have not tried the home delivery though. I of cause bring the cylinder in a three wheeler. Even when bringing so you are not required to carry your empty cylinder from home. You just have to pay for the new one and they will call a three wheeler (you have to pay the three wheeler separately) for you and upon coming back you just have to give the three wheel guy the empty cylinder.
For all these years there was only one instance where they sold a faulty cylinder to me. I was given a cylinder with a leak in it once and I had a hell of a time dealing with it. According what I learnt any dealer will refund (with a new cylinder) for faulty products. But in the case of leak the agreement is bit tricky. They will only refund you if the cylinder you are returning posses a certain weight. It is advised to keep the cylinder with the leak outside and I also don’t think it is safe to carry in a closed vehicle.
