Bob Smetana Buckeye Machinery Misrepresents Products Cleveland, Ohio

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Bob Smetana, the self-described President of Buckeye Machinery is about the worst vendor I have even been around. In a business where a person's representations and honest "word" is vital to a solid business relationship, Smetana is the most dangerous type of business owner. I felt immediately that something was not right about the way he approaches his work, but unfortunately, I continued down the path with him.  I learned the hard way, once again, that your gut is often the most important part of a buying process.

Whether Smetana is representing his own personal integrity or that of the products that he sells, he is consistent in his lies. Details that he provided me about his products were inaccurate at best and outright lies at their worst. If you find yourself in the market for the types of products that he sells, I would strongly suggest that you look elsewhere immediately. Don't get sucked in by his assurances and relatively slick tongue. He is to salespeople, what ambulance chasers are to the insurance profession and I would never work with this man again.

Finally, and for what its worth, his worst trait is by far his payment history. If you are relying on Bob Smetana to pay you for your products or services, I suggest that you get cash in-hand before you work with him. And if you are on the buying side, get the product before you send payment.
