My husband and I had three large Ash Trees we were looking to be removed, we had searched different tree companies for an affordable price and ended up hiring walt price with walts affordable tree service to do the job. He was scheduled to be at our house and start the job at 11 am on a Tuesday morning, I had rearranged my plans for the day accordingly with the work we had scheduled to be done on that day, by around 1:30 pm when walts tree service still hadnt arrived to start the job I tried contacting him by the number on a flyer he left when he knocked on my door and first scheduled our job, but all I could get was an answering machine.
Finally, by 2:30 pm he arrived at my home and started the work, when I asked him why he was late and hadnt at least given me a courtesy call, his response was very short and rude. So, already frustrated I allowed him to do the job for us. During the time he was working I noticed he had a very young child working on my property with him, I was very concerned with his safety so i asked Walt how old he was and he informed me that he is nly twelve years old, i then told him I was very uncomfortable with a child that young working on my property due to liability issues, then remembering the labor laws in the state of indiana, i became upset.
By around 10:30 pm walt came to me and informed me that he needed to come back the following day to complete the job, he also asked if we coild go ahead and pay him for the job so that he could pay his employees for the days work, so being the generous people we are we went ahead and paid him, trusting that he would return the next day. The following day I waited at my house all day for him to arrive, he never showed up or even had the courtesy to call. So after this lesson was learned my husband and I ended up having to call another tree service out to complete the unfinished work. Lesson is: Walt's Affordable Tree Service was the worse experience I have had with any business! Please save yourselves the time, money, and hassle and be aware of the scam artist that runs this very small unprofessional business!!!
