Less than a handful out of hundreds

I am the owner of Gorilla Trucking and I do remember a couple of people that have placed a negative comment. Some people just don't realize the problems that come with the trucking business nor do people want to accept what they don't want to hear: that I have to reschedule or that I can't get you ANOTHER load that wasn't originally on my schedule. I do have a schedule to keep to and I do everything I can to keep to that schedule. I've been in business for several years and have plenty of contracts and have hundreds of happy customers. It seems as if people only comment about the negative, not the positive - if all of my happy customers were to list their positive experience with my company, these negative comments would be far washed-out. I placed an ad on KSL to fill-in my time between my contractors and some of the homeowners that call are very rude and are not at all understanding. I apologize to the people that weren't satisfied. Unfortunately, I can't make every body in the world happy but I really do try hard to. Thanks

So it's not only me that it's happening to...

He delivered many load of topsoil, mulch, rocks, etc..for me. Then I needed him again today to deliver, and he completely ignored me. This is like the nth time he stood me up. What is going on with this guy...he has a business and he just disappears when ever he feels like it.

Great contractor.

I came upon this site while looking for another contractor as Doug at Gorilla is unable to make a delivery I need because of prior commitments. If the date was not such an issue I would hold off to use him again. After reading some of the negetive comments I felt compelled to write that I have only had positive experiences with this guy. In fact he is the only trucker i have used in the past that has got out of his truck and helped move dirt back to where it could not be accessed by the truck. Great guy, reasonable rates and always upfront about his availability which is not always ideal but that is because he is busy and he is busy because he is good.

Friendly, Fun, & Best Prices Around!

Well it's clear to see that a few people have not had the best experience with Gorilla Trucking, and I'm sure it was just an "OFF" day, which we ALL have - I know I do as a self-emloyed landscaper - just never can make everyone happy - and usually it's because those people are SOOOO miserable, that they don't allow anyone to make them happy and we, as business owners would rather NOT deal with them - there's plenty of work out there and it makese our days much better not having to deal with the type of people that have left the negative reviews about Gorilla Trucking! This company is outstanding, regardless what these small handful of people have said - if Gorilla Trucking was THAT BAD do you REALLY think they'd still be in business???? Maybe I've always gotten the 5-star service from them because I also give them 5-star service - it's rough roads out there & it's hard to travel around the valley and make it everywhere on time - not to mention, man-handling a huge dump truck and trying to make calls and take calls??? It's not at all safe to be on a cell phone while driving - give the guy a break and get over it - your life has obviously moved on... I'll recommend and DO recommend this company to every person, fellow landscaper & all friends & family!

TERRIBLE SERVICE

Thursday morning I talked to him and he said he could schedule me for a Friday morning drop-off. He said he would call before he comes. Friday morning comes... no call… I call him... no answer… leave a message... no return call… Call him again… another message… no return call. Almost a week later he still hasn’t called me back. Bottom line, I planned my weekend around having dirt and this guy didn't even have the courtesy to call me and tell me he couldn't do it so I could find someone else who could. His add on KSL.com guarantees friendly, reliable service to make sure you are satisfied. WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP. To say that dissatisfied customers are self-centered… GIVE ME A BREAK! This self-centered trucker decided his time was more important than mine by not doing what he said he would do. I just expect someone to do what they commit to, and at least call me if you aren’t going to be able to do it. Is that too much to ask? Sounds like making excuses is part of this guys business model. If your truck broke, I don’t know that because you didn’t even call me back. That’s just bad business. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS GUY. If this is this guy’s way of doing things, I wouldn’t believe a word he says about his service or product. Thanks for wasting my time and THANKS FOR NOTHING.

Awesome Guy!

I came upon my friend's business, Gorilla Trucking, while registering my business. I read the negative reviews and they are completely HIDEOUS! I've personally worked with him & know how hard he works & how much pride he takes in his business. These reviews obviously come from self-centered people & should not be considered!

Gorilla Trucking

I am removing my original review because I feel that this company had a legitimate reason for not being able to deliver.

I am the owner of Gorilla Trucking and I do remember a couple of people that have placed a negative comment. My truck broke down several times last year and some people don't realize the problems that come with the trucking business nor do people want to accept what they don't want to hear: that I have to reschedule.
I've been in business for several years and have plenty of contracts and have hundreds of happy customers. It seems as if people only comment about the negative, not the positive - if all of my happy customers were to list their positive experience with my company, these negative comments would be far washed-out.
I placed an ad on KSL to fill-in my time between my contracts and some of the homeowners that call are very rude and are not at all understanding.
I apologize to the people that weren't satisfied. Unfortunately, I can't make every body in the world happy but I really do try hard to. Thanks

I'd like to say I'm a customer...

I can't get Doug/Gorilla Trucking to deliver. A load was promised on several different days now and I still don't have anything. When I catch someone on the phone I get the run around. They have yet to return a call (4-5 messages over the week). The hardest part of finishing a yard shouldn't be getting a load of materials delivered.

Doug is the biggest liar I have ever talk to.

I rented a Skid Steer on a Friday and Doug promised me he would have rock and sand to me. Well it never showed up, I got a hold of him Friday night he said he would have it to me Saturday Morning, no show. He promised me Monday no show and just keeps lying about calling back and then shuts his phone off. I would tell him to eat it but i paid $260.00 for my rental and i want my money back. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY OR DOUG HE WILL NOT DELIVER ANY THING HE SAYS........

What great service!

Doug gave awesome, professional advice on the amount of gravel I needed. The gravel he delivered was high-quality! Will use again next summer when I do more yard projects!
