Already Chute / Ecolo Odor Control of Florida Complaint - Bait & Switch - Already Chute Ecolo Odor Control

Review by LauderdaleSandy on 2009-07-07
BOCA RATON, FLORIDA -- Our small condo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, needed work to our trash chute system. We got 3 bids, two recommended replacing our broken garbage doors, the 3rd, from Ecolo Odor Control (also doing business as Already Chute) promised to be able to fix them AND give us a 1 year warranty on the work. They also said they were licensed. At 50% the price of the other quotes, we hired them, they did the work and were paid $2800.

Less than a month later the doors stopped working properly. Ecolo came out once more to fix them. This time they lasted 3 weeks before breaking again. This went on for 9 months till they stopped taking our calls. Exactly 1 year to the day of the work, they called us to say the warranty was up and we would have to pay for brand new doors.

In the end, we paid $2800, the doors ended up no better than when they were broken, and we found out they had lied about being licensed. The only license they had was a city business license, not a contractor's license.

Avoid this company like the plague, it will cost you $$$ to do any business with them.

I suggest suing them in small claims court for a refund. It is very likely you would win in this case.
