Tired Of Getting Ripped Off
I've been with this company Initial Secure for going on 3 years now. Everything has been peachy up until about the last year. Just this morning I got an email that my 10 CYD removal completed yesterday was adjusted to 6 CYD because they saw empty spaces on my trailer. Ya think?? My trailer it 7x16 feet long and can hold up to 20 CYD when full. I was only supposed to move 10 CYD. Of course they're gonna see open spaces! Yes I provided measurements. I put in a bid of $400 to rent a brush hog and clear 1.35 acres of land that is 24 to 32 inches high and recut it with an initial cut. They undercut my rental of $150 per day....$100 full day machine rental plus fuel and trailering to $60. $60 is the 3 hour minimum required by the rental company. That puts me at 45 mins to the property, and 45 mins back to the store and an hour and a half left to use the brush hog AND cut 1.35 acres. ON TOP OF IT, they added a whole bunch more work like debris removal, shrub trimming, vine removal, etc to EQUAL to my $400 bid!!!! I turned it down! Tired of this crap!! I completed a debris removal for $25/CYD to move 18 CYD into storage. After 30 days I was told to dispose of the personals in storage for a grand total of $50!!!! That's a total of $2.77 per CYD!!!!! I had to handle this stuff FOUR times. From property to storage, and from storage to disposal. PLUS an extra month storage for March because the month is not prorated by the storage company. I did charge $25/CYD for 18 CY, plus $107 for the additional month, plus $409 for a 20 yard dumpster for a total of $966. They balked at the price and said the work order is only for $50. Their rep argued with my for 30 minutes about the price. He came up with moving the debris onsite, like from exterior to garage, is $7.50 Their price. So I would make $60 and have $10 for disposal costs. WHAT??? I CAN'T EVEN BY A GARBAGE CAN AT MENARDS FOR $10!!!!!! Not to mention 18 CYD by their price of $7.50 is $135!!!!! Where does he come up with $60?????? Still arguing this one out, but I'm so tired of this crap!! I can go on and on and on here. Anyone else dealing with this crap????
