Price Gouging After A Storm.
On June 9 2011 a severe thunderstorm with 120 km winds, caused many damaged trees in Scarborough. I was given a verbal only quote by this gentleman for my neighbour and I. "$5000" he said, "$2500 for each of you". My neighbour said he would get another quote, and I pointed out that I'd had a similar tree removed recently for $550. He allowed it required alot of labour. What a feeble excuse
I got a quote in writing from my previous tree remover for $800. A SEVENTEEN HUNDRED DOLLAR DIFFERENCE.
This is obvious price gouging on W M Weller Ltd part. It appears to be a big problem in the tree business preying on the uninformed and the elderly.
I highly recommend avoiding this kind of practise.
