A review for JCo Junk
Stop looking for other junk removal companies. Stop right now, pick up the phone, and call JCo. I had a few awkward items in my backyard that I needed to take to the dump. Fortunately, reason took hold and I decided NOT to do it myself, but to find a junk removal service to help. I called around, got a very high from the Big Guys, received a middle of the road quote from another company, then called JCo. They went to my place the same day, called me to give me a quote on the phone, then hauled away everything for a THIRD the price of the mid-priced option. Value for money, you can't do better. I had to take off 1 star because for some reason they left behind 4 scraps of wood that were part of my discard pile. Nothing I can't toss in the bin myself, but it was just a bit strange, and lacked a bit of attention to detail.

A review for FNJ CONTRACTING
Frank (the F in FNJ) is a great contractor. He takes the time to explain the work he is doing, is punctual, courteous, and very professional. Their crew arrived exactly on time and did the work quickly and efficiently. I had the old water pipe (installed when our 80 year old house was built) replaced after the City upgraded the main water lines with copper piping. The old pipe was really restricting the flow of water, and worse, was made of lead. The new pipe has made a huge difference, and we are extremely glad we had the work done.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for SWAT Wildlife
SWAT was great. True to their name, they quickly pinpointed the problem, installed a 1-way door for my new resident, and were in and out in an hour. Definitely good value for the money, and very professional. My only suggestion to them would be to provide guidance on permanently closing access points. The one way door is excellent, but it is a temporary measure to ensure the squirrels aren't trapped inside. A longterm solution is necessary, as all entry points can be major losses of heat in a home. It is essentially a hole into your roof, so it really requires a proper seal. I had to ask the SWAT technician what to do, and I would have appreciated a more proactive approach.
Thank you Chris for your review, I can appreciate your concern for heat loss in regards to the hole in your roof, however SWAT's primary focus is the removal of unwanted animals and the materials that we use are to ensure that they will not re-enter, however sometimes additional roofing expertise is required to keep out weather and other such elements. Glad that we were able to solve your Squirrel problem.
A review for Appliance Healer
Control panel on our stove blew from a power surge a couple of months ago. I called some other well-ranked appliance repair shops on this site, and received quotes as high as $200 and some condescending attitude. Appliance Healer was by far the best shop I talked to. The quote was entirely reasonable, and he was fast, efficient, and installed the board perfectly! I would recommend him to anyone.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Home Hardware Danforth Lumber - Dawes Rd
I read the glowing reviews, but I'm not sure what the hype is about here. The staff are OK. Just OK. They didn't Wow! me with their expert knowledge, and frankly some of their answers were not very accurate or useful. The lumber I received was really subpar. I bought a bunch of pressure treated 2x4s, and many of them were dry, brittle, and warped. I ended up scrapping about 30% of what I bought because they were unusable. When I came back to complain, the response I got was "Huh. That's weird." Like it was my fault that the decking screws they sold me (specifically for this wood) kept splitting open the boards. To get your lumber, you can only have 1 vehicle access the backlot at a time, which means there is a continual queue. I was in my car waiting when someone else just drove through, blocking the entire driveway. Instead of making him move the car, the staff simply served him as well, ignoring the line that was patiently waiting. When I was getting my lumber, it seemed the staff was inconvenienced by my small order. I wanted a 8' length, and the guy gave me a 10'. When I indicated it wouldn't fit in my car, he huffed off to get me the right length. Sorry, but do I need to ask you to do your job? On the plus side, it is a convenient place to get specialty lumber in the East end, and some of their wood is very nice. On the whole, however, I give this place a 4.0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
A review for Pre-Lock Security Services Inc
We hired Pre-Lock after the first locksmith completely bungled the job. These guys were great. They installed a special security lock with a non-reproducible key that we love. After watching a YouTube video of thieves lockpicking a door in 20 seconds, we knew we needed something that was a bit more of a deterrent. Pre-Lock were very professional, were fast and efficient, and helpful. The cost is largely that of the lock and keys, which aren't cheap given their construction.
We are glad our team was able make you happy. It's unfortante the first locksmith you found on the internet did not stand behind the work they did. As you know know it is very important to check out the credentials very carefully when shopping on the web for a security company. We are glad you found our website and are thrilled to have you as a satisfied customer.
A review for Mr. King's Junk Removal Services
Mr.King's is excellent. They made fast work of all the debris in my small backyard, and were gone in 20 minutes. I had a messy stack of rotting wood from my old hot tub, and there wasn't a trace of it when they left. They also took a bunch of bags of insulation I had stripped from the tub, and didn't charge me for the extra volume. Vincent and his partner were very personable, and very professional, and completed the work without even pausing for a minute. It was incredible. Thanks, Vincent!1 of 1 people found this review helpful.
