Additional Notes

Complaint: I hired Arbor Pro on 4-28-12. I was told that they needed to rent a ***** **** lawn mower, due to the length of my lawn mower. When a different representative from Arbor Pro came and evaluated my lawn, I was told that a ***** **** lawn mower was not necessary. Arbor mowed my lawn without a ***** **** then charged me the $95 for the ***** ****. I have contacted Arbor pro several times about the charge. Due to a job loss I was unable to pay the bill and I was sent to collections. I was sent to collections for the lawn mowing that Arbor pro did plus the $95 for the ***** **** lawn mower that was never rented, which came to $103.26 after tax. Arbor Pro is refusing to take the $103.26 for the ***** **** lawn mower out of collections which they never rented.

Desired Settlement: For arbor pro to deduct $103.26 out of collections.

Business Response:

First I would like to apologize for this slow response.  Your email was just discovered in the SPAM folder after we received a call from ******.

When were asked to provide a price for the field mow, we mentioned we might need to rent a ***** **** mower to get the best coverage.  However, we ended up using two ******* 36" mowers, which in turn gave better coverage, but because of the extra mower, we felt it fair to keep the price as quoted. 

*** ****** signed our contract and asked to have the main area mowed for $700.00 and then additional mows at $100.00 each.  He gave us $200.00 as a deposit in good faith.

After several statements and unsuccessful phone calls once our service was complete, we had no option but to send this to collection.  The collection is with ****** ********** ******* and their fee is 50% of what is collected, therefore, we have already lost any profit we pay have received.  We were also informed *** ***** was unavailable due to incarceration. 

We hope this resolves this matter.  Please let us know.


**** *******, Owner
