  • "I don't know what 9 and 10 represent in the list above, but I'm sure you would be poor on those as well. Despite having yesterday as a firm date for the painting - a firm date suggested by your "manager" (Nathan Bancroft) more than a week ago, and for which I made arrangements to be available - no one showed up, no one called, no one emailed... When I finally called Nathan he didn't answer his phone and answered with an email "Uh, sorry - maybe we'll be there by Wednesday". Seriously? Is that "First Class" service? Your "manager" was all over the estimate "how can I help you decide ?" "Just checking in to see if you need any more information ?" but is clearly more interested in making a sale than actually providing any decent customer service. He comes by it honestly, though... I made no less than half a dozen requests yesterday to speak to his "manager"... a Mr. Chris McDonough, I believe? - but he was clearly too busy too call me. Do you have so many angry customers that he had to deal with that the time in his day simply wasn't enough to get back to them all? And calling your head office didn't clearly yield any better results... maybe this will (but I doubt it)."
