Sears Complaint - Sears Home Improvement Out To Break Your Bank Account
I had decided to replace my living-dining area with hardwood flooring. I got about 6 contractors, very reputable and local to give me estimates to PROVIDE THE WOOD, prep, install and complete the flooring job.
Then, I got a notice from Sears, that they too, do Flooring - Home Improvement Services.
A salesman or representative from Sears came out and appeared noticeably "gay" which is not really a problem with me. However, his estimate of the cost for doing the floors was (now sit down when you read this!!!) $13,000.00 ABOVE ALL SIX OF THE ESTIMATES I HAD GOTTEN FROM MY LOCAL CONTRACTORS!!!
Sears was going to charge me $19,000.00 and my local contractors all very professional with high profiles all came up with around $6,000.00!!
All of the estimates I had gotten before the Sears Home Improvement guy, were around $6,000.00. When the Sears Rep finished tallying up my cost, his figure was $19,000.00 having the exact same flooring materials and measurements I had from the other contractors...!!! Then, he started talking about coupons and discounts and came up with another figure, $14,000.00 which I guess was meant to make me FEEL BETTER!! HA HA!
And if I signed on right away, he would drop the figure to $12,000.00 - STILL DOUBLE ALL MY OTHER ESTIMATES.
So, you all know what I did with the unsigned Sears Home Improvement contract when the representative left...use your imagination!! hahaha
