BBB asks advertisers to prove their claims, change ads to make offers more clear to consumers, and remove misleading or deceptive statements.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview
BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.
|Customer Review Experience||Value|
|Positive Review||5 points per review|
|Neutral Review||3 points per review|
|Negative Review||1 point per review|
BBB letter grades represent the BBB's opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business' grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.
BBB Letter Grade Scale
Star Rating scale
BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: 4/26, 2012 **** ********** gave estimate to do extensive property cleanup. 5/2 he arrived 2 hours late. He was paid but did not complete work. I called **** from an ad in a local publication. On 4/26 he came to me house and we walked all the way around the property. I pointed out work to be done, he agreed. H gave an estimate of $180 to do the extensive cleanup. He scheduled to be here 5/2 at 8 am, but had not shown up by 9:30, so i called. His wife said he had lost his keys, would be there soon. He arrived at 10 am. I had a Dr appointment and had to leave at 11:00. It looked as though there was still a lot of work to be done, so I told him I would pay when I came back. He pressed to be paid before I left in case he finished early. Reluctantly I wrote a check for full amount. I was home by 12:30 and he had gone. Later that day I walked the property and saw that he had NOT done much of the work we agreed on. Apparently I paid $90 an hour for uncompleted slipshod work. I left a phone message that he needed to come back to finish. He called me 5/3, said he would be here 5/4 at 3:00 to work. He has cashed the check, and has not done the work. I will have to hire someone else to do the needed work
Desired Settlement: The work Mr. ********** completed, weed whipping and spraying some weeds, is payable at a maximum of $25 an hour. He spent two hours, so I feel I owed him $50 for his labor. I want him to return the overcharge of $130.
