Additional Notes

Complaint: I called Beaumont Greenery in early June about talking to someone about landscape work at my house. Spoke with ***** and made an appointment for **** to come out. Late that day, ***** called and cancelled. Next day she called and rescheduled. **** arrived at the house and we talked about what I wanted done. He took measurements of the front of the house and was going to work up a plan and cost estimate. I told him I wanted to start after the July 4th holiday and was going to be out of town for two weeks. He said he'd get back with me. On June 29th, I returned from vacation. There was no mail or phone messages indicating that they had tried to contact me, so on Monday, June 30, I called Beaumont Greenery and talked to *****. I told her I hadn't heard anything from them regarding my project. She said, "He didn't call you?" I told her no, and she told me she'd check with **** and call me back. I have never heard another word!

Desired Settlement: I want the folks at Beaumont Greenery to know that I would never use them, or recommend them to anyone. I think it is disgusting how many of the "business people" in this town don't have enough respect for their customers, or potential customers, to communicate on a timely basis. If a job is above the level of your expertise, or your schedule is just so full you can't meet expectations or commitments, please just say so, up front, so that a person can move on.

Business Response: First and foremost, I, myself, **** ****** of Beaumont Greenery is a consumer as well as a business owner.  The customer is accurate in the explanation of the events that occurred as stated.  At this particular time in my life, as a husband, a father, business owner and a human being, I was dealt some of life's everyday challenges.  I had a family member that was ill, that eventually in mid July lost his battle, and a lost a true friend and a grandfather.  Does this give me a reason to disregard my customers?  NO.  I simply let my life problems foreshadow my duties as a business owner.  Yes, for awhile I was off balance in a business that I have run smoothly for 25 plus years without one complaint to BBB.  Now I will have a complaint about a service issue or a call back that I did not follow through on and the customer is always right.  No money ever changed hands and I just lost a sense of perception to my duties as a businessman.  I apologize for my actions and this will make me a better person. 

Thank you to all of my customers.

Consumer Response:  
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID 10191594, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. 

 
It is unfortunate that neither **** nor ***** took the time to respond to my second inquiry.  I understand how things sometimes get out of control, and my project could have waited, had I been alerted to the issue.
As it is, this incident has soured me on on what had been, very satisfactory business dealings in the past.
Sincerely,

**** *******
