Fred Campbell Complaint - Tree Service Not Completed.

Review by tab77728 on 2011-11-02
PERRY COUNTY, OHIO -- My parents own this house that I live in. A few weeks ago, This "FRED CAMPBELL" stopped by and asked if I would be interested in TREE and STUMP REMOVAL. I told him to talk to my parents about it. They live a few houses up the street.

I witnessed there negotiation for the removal of the TREE and the STUMP. The price started at $600.00 and went to $700.00 with STUMP removal. I heard him (FRED CAMPBELL) ask my mother for the money up front because "HIS RENT WAS COMING DUE SOON". My mother was nice enough to give him this money up front so he could pay his rent.

In a few days later he came back and removed the dead limbs from the top part of the tree and took them away. He left 10 to 15 feet of the tree and several limbs still hanging there.

He said "HE WOULD BE BACK TO REMOVE THE REST OF THE TREE AND THE STUMP".
We have talk with him several times (740-605-2520) and he repeatedly said "HE WOULD BE BACK SOON TO REMOVE THE REST OF THE TREE AND THE STUMP".

We have not seen him since this early Fall.

Recent contact attmepts at the same phone number (740-605-2520) have been disreguarded with a message from a machine saying 'HE IS NOT ACCEPTING PHONE CALLS AT THIS TIME".

We consider this job very much INCOMPLETE.

it might be worth it to go to small claims and recover at least a portion of the money.
