*REBUTTAL Owner of company: ANOTHER FALSE AND MISLEADING COMPLAINT
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Every Customer Gets ValuePest Contracts Prior To Service
I called these guys to find out their information and they had a good pitch: good coverage for termite protection, lower costs and no long term contract. After hanging up, I realized I hadn't asked for a contract to compare with the others. Called back and pretty quickly got into a stalemate with Steve on the phone. He refused to send me a copy of the contract for my review while making some oblique references that he thought I was a spy for Terminix and was just trying to get a contract to give to some other pest provider. Not that this makes much sense - I don't think national pest control companies would want to copy Value Pest's contract, but it was annoying. So I said that I may just have the technician come out to start the service and look at the contract then and send him away if I didn't like it - thereby wasting both the technician's time and my own.
At that point, Steve said he was banning my home and would never send a technician out. Steve was really trying to make me feel like I was being unreasonable and should apologize and beg to have the privilege to pay for their service.
I realize he had to do that to protect his bottom line, but transparency in this area is vital to me as a customer. I'm not signing up for anything until I see it in writing. Would anyone buy a car warranty without reading the fine print? Would you get an extended service agreement from Best Buy without reading the contract first? This was just surprising to me and disappointing given the fact that what they were saying on the phone sounded so good. It just makes me think they had something to hide - but I'll never know because I couldn't see a contract!
Good luck all, and remember - just ask to see a contract.
