Apex Tree Service, Inc.

Posted on: 2/24/2013

Excellent Work!

I recently had three trees removed from my back yard (I live on a slope down to a lake). I contacted several of the Kudzu "Best of 2012" companies to come out and give me quotes. Three of the six companies I reached gave me quotes on a Saturday morning (when I was home)... one scheduled for Monday and I wound up canceling their quote (was happy with what I had gotten thus far and Monday was not convenient for me to start with - but that firm only did quotes M-F), two firms were no-shows for Saturday... Of the three quotes Apex was in the middle, closer to the lower quote... though it isn't really a fair comparison because their quote included services not offered by the other firms... I was impressed by Apex both from the professionalism, the breadth of questions asked, and the number of services offered. I was almost worried that it was too good to be true, though figured even if they did the bare minimum, the price was reasonable... The three trees were removed, the wood worth splitting for firewood was cut/split and stacked where I wanted it, the remaining brush was chipped and put into a container for composting per my instructions, and the area was cleaned up. John informed me during the quote that they used a separate team (subcontractor) to grind the stumps as that made it more economical - they too did a good job. I was pleasantly surprised at the work that they did... and am planning on using some of their other services in the near future...

Sold my townhouse when no-one else could...

I had a series of Realtors attempt to help me sell my townhouse, and the service provided by Lauren and Keith was so superior that it is hard to compare. They worked with me as a team, stayed engaged, and provided great insights and honest assessments. Before Lauren and Keith, almost anything that could go wrong, did. Lauren and Keith helped me work through many issues - including helping me evaluate multiple offers and understanding the short-sale process.

Great service, again.

I have an HVAC system installed by Casteel, use their $168 for 2x year check-up. They are great about scheduling the maintenance checks around my schedule. The guys are always neat and courteous. This year I have needed the exhaust motor replaced for the furnace (invoice 75718) and the condenser coil replaced for the AC (invoice 114521). These were both warranty items. Casteel was speedy, did a clean job, didn't try to charge me for "extras", explained everything very well - this has not been my experience with other companies on no-cost warranty covered repairs. I have been very happy with the choice to use them!

Great Auto-Shop!

We were debating fixing the old car or buying a new one. Car had a laundry list of problems. They figured out that most of the problems were related and fixed everything better we hoped for just over $300.

Great Doctor

I have always liked Doctors associated with teaching universities, and Dr. Baird is no exception. He is very knowledgable on a lot of subjects. Easy to talk to, listens, and is open-minded.

Good Mechanic

I moved here from out-of-town and didn't know any good mechanics. After numerous bad experiences, I found a mechanic I am sticking with. Honest, prompt, and reasonably priced.
