Empire Carpets Complaint - Bad sales tactics
I scheduled to have a salesman come measure and quote the entire house. A total of 1500 square feet. The guy comes out (by the way, late) and starts measuring the place. He tried constantly to push me into carpeting when I specifically said laminate both when I scheduled and also when he walked in the door. I also informed him when he walked in that I was just starting to shop around an he was the first person to come out. After measuring, he dinks around on his calculator, never once looking at any price sheets, and just says $10,800 for all laminate and $6900 for carpet. I asked to get an estimate in writing and he say they ONLY bid by the job. He can't give me an estimate sheet detailing material pricing and labor. Total BS! He then asks if there is anyway he can get my business right on the spot. When I said absolutely not (reiterated the "shop around" statement for the 4th time), he packs up fast and is gone just like that. What a moron!
