Additional Notes

Complaint: The estimate for tree service was deceiving in that the total line was changed after the work was accomplished to far more than expected. The work on site was not fully completed, and at least one tree was cut that was outside of the problem area contracted to be serviced.

Desired Settlement: Complete cutting a downed tree in 16" lengths as contracted.

Business Response: We were contacted by ****** ******* on 3-2-15 to do a free estimate. He asked Godzilla’s Tree Service to come out to his property to give him an estimate to remove a pine tree that had fallen behind
his house. He said he wanted the tree cut up, the brush chipped and the wood hauled away. We went out to his property on 3-7-15 and did the estimate for ******. The amount of the first estimate was $1120.00. ****** then called us back and asked if we could come out again and give him a 2nd estimate to remove a small cluster of 3-4 pine trees which were also in the same area as the fallen pine tree. We went out to his property a second time to estimate the additional work on 3-11-15. The additional cost to remove this small cluster of trees would be $800.00. The updated estimate was emailed to ****** on 3-26-15 showing the additional cost. The following week ****** called Godzilla’s Tree Service to get his tree work scheduled. The job was scheduled for 4-2-15. On 4-6-15 ****** sent us an email stating that our estimate was deceiving. He also stated that we had left one log uncut. I explained to him that an updated estimate was emailed to him showing the additional charge of $800.00. The original estimate for $1120.00 was to clean up the fallen pine, chip all brush, cut wood in to 16 inch lengths and leave the wood rather than haul it away PLUS the additional $800.00 to remove the cluster of 3-4 trees which he had requested. We apologized for the inconvenience and said that we would send someone out to cut up the log that was missed. Due to the weather and a major upswing in our business we were unable to get back out to his property for several weeks. At our first availability, a crew member was sent out to take care of the log that was left uncut. The crew member returned the next day and said the he had taken care of the log, but when he went to speak with ******, he was not at home. As of today, the log has been cut up into 16 inch lengths and left on the property as requested.

Consumer Response:  
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to my concern, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.
Checked the area, and the log has now been cut to usable lengths. Thank you.
