Additional Notes

Complaint: I have been dealing with them back and forth for months. The man said he'd come and give me an estimate, and then I never heard from him. They gave me days they were supposed to come out, but never did. I called and the wife answered the phone. She said she was going to call and ask her husband what was going on. She said on that job her husband would charge $30 to blow and trim my yard, which isn't what I asked for. He called me back and he said he would do x job for x price. He said he would be out on Monday. He gave me the pricing and we agreed. Come Monday, nothing was done. I called back and no one answered, so I called the other number. It was his wife again and I told her how no one showed up like they were supposed to. She said her husband would call me back, and he never did. I called both numbers again today, and still no answer. They are giving me the run around. If they can't do the work, I'll find someone else, but they need to communicate better.

Desired Settlement: I want this company to communicate with me better. If they can't do the work, I'd like to know, instead of being told they will, then they never call or show up.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2015/09/07) */ I did try to get ahold of this lady by cell phone in fact I still have her number on my phone but I did not get a response back when your help does not come in andyour equipment brakes down you get behind that is what I was going to tell this lady but I did not here back from her then I got this complaint so I figured she found someone else I did not avoid her
