Simple lumber deliveries you’d think?

From their time as employees at Rona the owner and President of The Lumber Guys "Guy" and his side kick shipping Manager "Steven" knew that Oborne Contracting Inc. was one of the bigger general contracting companies in the GTA and they worked diligently to solicit our lumber contracts when they formed The Lumber Guys. We made the choice to give The Lumber Guys an opportunity to secure our business but in two words or less…..BIG MISTAKE! This company is so unorganized and so unprofessional it boggles the mind. It the three orders we provided them for two separate projects in the span of just over a week encompasses the amount of issues you might expect from a supplier over the course of many years. Right from the original ordering to the deliveries the numerous and comical issues seemed like scenes out of The Three Stooges or Laurel and Hardy movies. The mistakes of The Lumber Guys cost my company over $5,000.00 dollars in billed lost man hours and sub trade time. The owner and the shipping manager did nothing to rectify the situation, provide any fair compensation or even apologize. I am now left fighting for refunds on all the wrong materials shipped another $1,000.00 plus. In all the issues of suppliers over the course of 21 years Oborne Contracting Inc. has been in business we have never felt so inclined to review and warn others of any company. Use The Lumber Guys at your own risk, but you have been warned.
If you are even considering using this company and wish to have a verbal testimonial please feel free to call us at 905-889-2841

Company Response

There was a misunderstanding between the order desk and Oborne Contracting Inc with the width of the LVL’s. We were willing to change everything right away and pick up the other LVL’s. When we got to the site to do the exchange Oborne Contracting Inc did not want to pay for the difference in cost for the LVL’s, we could not drop off the LVL’s without the payment. Oborne Contracting Inc insisted that they would not pay for the difference in cost so we left the job site
