Additional Notes

Complaint: Aire-Serv refused repeatedly to say whether it would send a technician to my homed, despite being under contract with American Home Shield. The only contact with a technician resulted in his saying there was no paperwork. AHS said repeatedly that the paperwork had been sent, then re-sent it. Still, no response from Aire-Serv.

Desired Settlement: Their removal from the BBB. They're uniformly rated negatively on Yelp.

Business Response: We closed our office for the 4th of July weekend.  We were closed from Friday through Sunday and had one technician on call.  The technician was servicing emergency calls.  American Home Shield did not send your call as an emergency.  The answering service was answering calls for us and should have advised you the that office was closed and we would respond to you on Monday during office hours.  If you were in need of emergency service then calling American Home Shield to expedite service would be your next step.  American Home Shield was aware we were closed.  We work through American Home Shield and they dictate what calls are emergency calls.  The technician on call does not have access to our email.  If you had called American Home Shield and requested that your call be expedited, then American Home Shield would have contacted our technician to ask him if he was able to except your call.  If he wasn't able to then they would have transferred it to another company.  You did not do these, hence, our technician on call could not respond to you until he had that paperwork.  Giving us bad reviews before getting all the facts and complaining to the BBB is a great way to ruin small companies.  We have great reviews on other sites and we care tremendously about our customers. However, we care about our employees even more.  We wanted them to have some time off to regroup.  Thank you for understanding.

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because: I'm being chastised for not getting all the facts. But the business doesn't have all the facts. I repeatedly called American Home Shield. They said you were open, and I requested they contact you several times. Your website says it's a 24-hour service. They said you were open and that a person was on call. They even faxed a request to your office. But it's rather clear that you don't care about customers. Neither American Home Shield nor you EVER said you wouldn't be able to come out until Monday. I repeatedly requested some info on when I would be assistance, I was repeatedly told to await your call (without any date ever given.) Your business deserves to go under, as far as I'm concerned. Your complete unwillingness to have anyone who could explain the situation, including your own answering service, which I contacted repeatedly, says a lot about you.

Regards,

******* ****
