Anyone have any experience with these guys? I've been to a couple properties in my area recently where they have posted wint signs, ect.

Never heard of them until about a week ago, and now they've been popping up. Appears to be a REO contractor, amongst other things.

I've seen their work at properties, half ass doesn't even begin to describe it. They're local to me, I've heard some not so good stories and I would not recommend anyone trying to work with them unless you like excuses and don't like getting paid.

They're middle men like most little companies out there.

SRT_Diesel I am really sorry you feel that way about the company.

Everyone here works very hard to make certain that our customers are fully satisfied and the work requested is done entirely as they want it to be.

The Ripoff report you posted was obviously from a disgruntled sub who thought that they did not get the pay due to them. After we posted a rebuttal every job was pulled including POs and it was indeed proven that they had been paid for everything that they had completed. We work very diligently to make sure our employees, subs, and customers are 100% satisfied.

The banks that we work for have such strict guidelines that we have to adhere to it is impossible to do poor or inadequate work.

Couple thoughts come to mind here. I would agree that the Ripoff Report linked earlier is posted by a disgruntled sub. I think there is still some question as to how and when he became disgruntled.

From the outside looking in, if he submitted invoices with a net 15 day payment listed, he would have to be a pretty poor record keeper to not realize what was outstanding after such a short time. He claimed it took 5 months. As such, good riddance I suppose.
I also noticed you didn't respond to the remarks he made regarding being called back to work for you. Neither did I read anything refuting his comments that Truly Noble Services shared financial and/or confidential information outside of your company. Neither was there any explanation as to why his calls were not returned.
Not familiar with the Star Media; I have however, had experience with some midwest publications and their "best of lists", which in some cases, when winners were based on online submissions, there was what you could call "ballot stuffing" so to speak. The feedback from one's own customer base seems to make a larger impact with the more informed. What makes "Goody Goody Liquors" in Plano, for example, any better than the local 711?
I decided long ago to avoid using myself or my workers' status as a veteran in order to garner work. Whether I fought for my country and did my time, or stayed home, how does that impact any quality of work or service?
I wish the best for any honest and reputable company, and if that includes Truly Noble Services then that's ok too.

I don't need to read through the ripoff report to see who done right or wrong. The ripoff report is right there in the price list. ALL YOU NEW GUYS TRYING TO START UP A NEW BUSINESS, you think because you are small you can keep the expenses down and make money. At the dump and at the pump, a ton is a ton and a gallon is a gallon...and you will pay the same as the next guy....and YOU WILL LOSE MONEY AT RIPOFF PRICES LIKE THIS! DO NOT SIGN UP!

After reading my own post, I see I may have given the wrong impression to someone trying to start up. Hats off to ya for striking out on your own and leaving the 9-5 job for something better. Here's the deal. I was in the same boat. I signed up for $500 initial service trashouts up to 40 cubes with full landscape and interior, white glove clean. There was extreme contractor shortage in my area and I ran the numbers, seems there was potential there to clear $20,000 a month if me and my buddy worked our south end off. By the time we were done with 3 jobs we were $85 in the hole. I know now why we got those 3 jobs...the guys that knew what they were doing had already turned them down. I learned some very expensive and painful lessons the first 3 months and with some very lucky breaks, we got back in the black. Just sayin' it's a real :censored: getting off the ground and you will be 6 feet under if you work for the above posted pricing.

And hey Riggs...you are either ripoff artist yourself, or just ignorant. I want you to do a 40 cube trash out at your prices and see if you wouldn't make more at McDonalds. Hell, you can even borrow my truck and trailer and the first tank of fuel is on me! You'll be begging to flip burgers.

Truly Noble Services-Garland Tx

That name just really scares the hell out of me.
Truly = to the fullest degree, genuinely, or properly

Noble = having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals

Services = offering foundation to roof services, including lawn and landscaping

Yes, I can see where the fear would come from... [in my most sarcastic voice possible]

It's not impossible. Not saying in your case, but it's pretty much across the board- I sure as heck see sub-par work every single day by contractors that could care less about what they do, and are simply waiting for a check and then some other poor contractor to show up and sign in to the property to shift the liability off themselves. It's really sad, and angering.

The reason this is happening is because of companies like this hiring people for next to nothing and expecting the world. You can't work for free and you can't lay out all of that money to end up with minimum wage in the end either. I just got a bid approval from MCS, we put a bid in to trim all of the bushes and trees at the property that has been neglected for 3 years. Property is a little over an acre and we figured that it would take 2 guys 2 full days to complete this work including dumping. Our bid was $2200, they take 25% off of the top which leaves us with $1650. Well the bid was approved, but the approved amount was $200. Seriously?!?!? WTF!!!! Who is going to do all that work for that price MINUS A DISCOUNT. I declined the order and told them that if they wanted $200 worth of work completed, we would trim 4-5 bushes. Of course that wasn't good enough, so lets see if some other hungry iddiot trying to get in this biz completes it.

It is sad they can even get crews at those prices.
Recut and maid refresh 35 bucks

It all comes down to the owner of the asset. They hire a Truly Un noble company to push work at less then minimum wage standards. They are who to blame. They cant say oh we didn't know. When these asset owners start getting hit with law suits company's like Truly un noble will be gone.

Fred Flintstone owns house and hires Barney Rubbles construction to perform work on his house. Barneys construction back hoe rips side of neighbors home off. Barney's insurance didn't cover. Oh no
Fred gets sued and lost life savings and Wilma files for divorce. And to make matters worse Barney was using slave labor and paying under minimum wage. Fred did not look good in court. Fred also used other contractors to work on his rentals units that they also paid less then minimum wage standards. The pattern of Fred's practices was established.
Lawyers smiled brightly well one side did.
