Complaint Resolution Log (1)
08/12/2014Problems with Product / Service | Read Complaint Details

Mr. Holyfield used my property to service his client, spilled some 20 gallons of diesel killing a large patch of my lawn.
Mr. Holyfield called and asked my permission to bring equipment (some sort of man lift) on my property in order to cut down a tree in my neighbor's yard. This would allow him to do the work quickly and make it much easier on him. He swore if any damage was done he would make amends. During the job his equipment overturned and spilled the tank of diesel on my yard which soaked in and ultimately killed a large patch of grass. He assured me he would take care of the damage, going into great detail as to how he would dig out the diesel soaked dirt, refill with top soil and replant the grass. That was as far as it went. Rather than jumping right on it and dealing with his mistake he left and never called back. After months of me calling him and "I'll get by there next weeks" and various excuses as to why he hasn't repaired my yard he finally stopped returning my calls. It has been two years and the grass is still dead.

Desired Settlement
I'm simply asking the man to honor his word and replace the dirt and grass.

Business Response
RE: **** *****

My intentions are to replace the dirt and grass that was damaged. I have contacted Mr. ***** and explained what our intentions are in this matter. He was very understanding and we are making arrangements for this problem to be corrected.

Thank you,

***** H. Holyfield,****
