AKA Tree Removal LLC

excellent work by a skilled crew

From low-bid quote to perfect clean-up, AKA did a superlative job taking down a big cedar and a bigger short-leaf pine tree without damaging any vegetation beneath it. Kudos to the expert crew. I recommend AKA without hesitation for tree removal work.

Classic Collision of Alpharetta

impeccable service and performance

I was rear-ended on the 19th, and the at-fault driver's insurance company assumed full financial responsibility for the repairs and the rental car. I was impressed with Classic Collision from the moment I drove my damaged but drivable car to them for the estimate and got prompt, polite service from everyone there. I appreciated the seamless coordination with Enterprise for the rental car. I was asked to drop the car off on the 25th, with the expected completion date of the 28th. They sent me e-mailed status reports, and yesterday I got a phone call from my contact there, Jeff Boyd, letting me know that my car would be ready for pickup today, right on schedule. I drove over there this morning, dropped off the rental car keys, and then Jeff went to the back and several minutes later reappeared at the front door, asking me to take a look at the car. I was delighted with how beautifully the repairs were made. They matched the old paint perfectly with the new paint. They even washed the car, a nice bonus. Going to a body shop is no one's idea of a fun time, but I have I have nothing but good things to say about how Classic Collision treated me and how quickly and expertly they fixed my car. What's more, their repairs are guaranteed for life. One can't ask for better service.

All Four Seasons Garage Doors

incomparable service

The company installed my garage door some years ago, and since then they've come for service calls several times and have provided excellent service. Today they came within hours of my call and fixed the problem immediately (it actually was an easy one this time) and charged me a very fair price. The service people have been proficient and polite, and I do not hesitate to recommend the company for either installation or repair or both.

Flawless Painting, LLC

an outstanding painting company

After getting quotes from several painting companies, I chose Flawless not because they were the low bidder but because of the precision of their estimate and the excellent pre-project attention Ben, the owner, paid to my questions and concerns. I had absolutely no regrets throughout the five-day job at the end of September. (I've been remiss in not posting this review sooner.) Omar and Oscar worked tirelessly and neatly for the first three days, replacing many cedar boards and doing caulking and sealing. Before leaving every evening, they did a spotless cleanup. The staining of the house took another day, and on the final day they painted the trim. When finished, they labeled the leftover cans and left my property broom clean. Each day, Ben came to make sure all was being done to my satisfaction. The next day, I noticed a couple of minor items that needed attention, and Omar came to take care of them. My house now looks brand new. I cannot recommend Flawless Painting more highly. They live up to their name in both performance and service.

Perfect Performance

couldn't be better

My trusted mechanic suggested I go to Perfect Performance for new tires, and I'm glad I did. The price was competitive, and the service could not have been better. The tires I wanted came in that same afternoon, but I made an appointment for a couple of days later. I got there, was seen immediately, and the installation and alignment took even a little less tim than they'd estimated. The waiting room was comfortable, and there were good vibes as I listened to the owner interact with his staff and his staff interact with customers. The person who helped me (Marshall) was extremely polite and knowledgeable. It's too bad that one doesn't need tires frequently, because I certainly would go back to this facility.

BP Upholstery & Design

topnotch

I chose BP Upholstery after reading rave reviews, and I was not disappointed. Not only did they do a fine job with the work itself on my swivel rocker recliner, but after it was finished and delivered to my home, there was an overpowering (to me) smell of the faux leather (vinyl) I'd selected, and going above and beyond what I might have expected, Jennie offered to take the chair back to their shop and let it air out there. Three weeks later, I went over there yesterday to take a sniff, and the strong odor was gone, with just a hint remaining. They then delivered the chair that same afternoon. It's great to have the chair back, and the new color works perfectly with my sofa and valances. There was no problem for BP Upholstery to not charge me for the balance due until the chair was delivered again and I was completely happy. Kudos to them for fine workmanship and service.

Unlockit Locksmith & Security

superb locksmith service

Given the numerous outstanding reviews of UnlockIt, I didn't even bother to get a second quote but called them to fix or repair my front door lock. I expressed no urgency, but I was given an appointment by (very nice) Caroline less than two hours from my call. Tomas, the security specialist, called when he was on the way, and upon arriving he quickly diagnosed the problem, repaired the (very old) lock, lubricated it and showed me how to do it myself three times a year, and then also fixed something with another lock and made sure the third lock was working fine. I could not have asked for better service from any company, and I recommend them without hesitation.

Atlanta Plumbing Plus

Outstanding again

I didn't hesitate to call on Atlanta Plumbing Plus again (on March 29, 2010)* when a pipe above my garage ceiling broke and I thought, too, that a hose bibb was leaking. As promised, Ken called when he was on the way. He diagnosed the hose bibb problem as due to the brass splitter, which we removed and that problem was solved. He went into my attic above the garage and found and fixed the broken pipes, re-insulated them, and left everything neat and shipshape. Once again, I have only good things to say about this company. *Note: When I went to write what I thought would be an additional review, Kudzu overwrote my original one, which also showed my great satisfaction with the company.

404-Cut-Tree

excellent service

My next-door neighbor retained 404-CUT-TREE to remove three old Bradford pear trees. When the crew was done, I asked them to quote to remove two of my not-so-healthy cherry trees. The price was reasonable, so I told them to proceed. I could not be more pleased. Roberto and Jose were undaunted by the heavy rain that started falling during the job, they expertly and carefully lowered the cut limbs to the ground and prevented them from falling onto my new patio, and they left the property clean as a whistle when they were done. I would call this company again for future work and highly recommend them to anyone who needs quality tree removal.

Rick’s price was competitive, but it was how he presented himself and his company that made me choose him. He has a portfolio of lovely photos of completed work, and his website, including impressive testimonials, is top-notch, showing before-and-after photos and details of his outstanding work. For me, Rick overlaid an existing concrete patio with gray crab orchard stone and created an extension of it, complying with my request to select stones with as much color variety as possible. To do that, in addition to the pallets he purchased, he used darker stones from his own inventory. I cannot say enough good things about Rick’s crew. Foreman Osmin and workers Jose and Alfredo were prompt, worked very hard, smiled a lot, and were personable and professional. I am pleased to have photographically documented almost every step of the process because it shows perfectionists at work. Toward the end, every time I thought the job was over, I found them performing yet another step to make the finished patio as beautiful as it could be. Also, before they left after the first day and upon completion, they cleaned up the back yard very well. They deserve to be proud of the outstanding job they did. And Rick is to be commended for not charging for some extras that he found desirable to make me completely happy. I have other projects on my wish list, and Outside Landscape will get the jobs as soon as I get the money for them.
