Garage Build

Carshacks is not a reputable company. Please do not hire them to do your work. We were promised a garage before winter, with a completion date of November 2014 (verbal completion date given). It is now Feb 2015 and our work is still not completed. We paid our deposit in the summer and work only began in October. We ended up terminating the contract and we were lucky we only paid the deposit.

Time and time again the company stalled and told me false statements about their progress and commitments. Communication was hard to establish and work would start and stop at irregular times. Nothing would get done for large periods of time unless I called and complained.

This company will make a lot of promises but will not deliver on them. Management is irresponsible and does not step up to offer any accountability.

There is a definite trend in the comments on this site so please take our experiences as a warning and do not give this company your business.

new garage

Do not build with this company. No communication. They don't return phone calls or emails on time. No apologies for being late. Not one commitment met. Build was to be completed Fall of 2014 and we are still waiting. It's January 2015 and we wish we went with someone else, this experience is brutal. Learn from our mistakes with Carshacks from this post and others. Go with another company.

garage

If you need a garage, don't choose these guys! My contract was signed Aug.4 2014, with a commencement date of Sept 2, and a completion date of Oct 15 2014. It is now Jan 10 2015 and all we have is a standing structure that is exposed to the elements. They have a great salesman (far superior to any other company we had give us a quote) He made promise's that I believe the company had no intention of honoring. Anything to get the sale. Unfortunatley we took the bait. It has been countless phone calls (us to them) to find out about the details of the construction and updates as to what and when will be happening with the project. If you want details, you must play detective and look for the truth. The controller there is very deceptive. They will never commit to anything. I always looked for a date when I could expect to see them next, but never got it. It has been excuse after excuse, Ranging from weather to contracters quitting. The weather this fall has been pretty mild, This garage should have been done months ago. I could understand a few delays, but come on....It really only takes a couple weeks to complete a garage. The guys that did show up to work would only be working for short periods of time. 45 min here, couple hours there. Only once did we get a full day of work. They have stalled so long that the weather now is truly a problem. I dont expect to see completion until spring. So do yourself a favor and buy the package, get your friends and family to give you a hand and save yourself a huge amount of stress, and about 10 grand tooo.

Garage

If you want a garage built in a timely manner I would never recommend this company. They are extremely unreliable and they do not communicate any delays. It's up to the customer to make multiple phone calls to followup to see what's going on and even then they will never give you a straight answer. Our garage contract was signed 6 months ago and it's still not completed. They always make some sort of excuse and never fulfill what they say they will. Terrible site supervising. No one ever supervised our garage build!

Garage Construction

I would not recommend this company at all. They don't communicate with you, and don't keep promises. I contracted to have a garage built in September 2013 and it only just got finished now at the end of May 2014. They do nothing but make excuses for why they are behind. The work is fine once it finally gets done but don't believe the sales guy who will tell you 6 to 8 weeks for completion.

Garage

Extremely bad service. We signed the contract in September 2013, with completion date of Jan. 2014, they didn't even start until January (however they count getting the line locates done as having commenced the project). Garage still not done, lot's of delays and excuses, from weather to contractor being robbed, to being too busy with other projects to finish ours, and to top it off cash flow problems. They only communicate when they want money. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Building of a Garage

We were not happy with the work completed. They fail to communicate and show up at scheduled times. They left a mess which we had to request the re-attend to clean up in the yard area. The actual building of the garage took twice as long as they indicated it would. They failed to inform us about any of the heating options. I would never hire this company.

Built our new garage

They built our new garage and did a great job. We compared pricing with others and they were slightly higher but they could match the roof and siding. They even gave us advice on the slope of the backyard. They were easy to get a hold of and handled any issues that came up. They even picked up the installment payments downtown from me.
