Aweful Service, Intent to Mislead

Totally misleading behaviour, no real work done.

A bit of cleaning.

Reset a motor.

Said the dryer was working.

So, turns out the dryer is not working. Too bad for me.

Fees charged for work done, outrageous. Customer service, integrity, standing behind their work, does not exist.

washer repair

Consistently misleading; taking advance payments with no services provided; avoid engaging them.
We were waiting for the replacement component for 8 weeks and still don't have it. Wee got it within 2 weeks, and asked them to install. They never returned a call after charging for the future services.

Misleading be careful

Was told the rate was $80 to have a tech come out and evaluate the problem for my dishwasher. Once here it changed to $80 + $260 + parts.. Shameful never again.

Refrigeration Repair

My refrigerator was no longer cooling, so I searched the internet under appliance repair and came across The A Team Appliance Repair. I called this so called repair company to schedule a service call; I was told I would be charged $80 for the service call to diagnose the problem, which was fine; however this is where the misleading begins. During the diagnostic, which took him 10 min, he proceeded to tell me I would need to pay $280 to further investigate & fix the problem. After 35 min of tinkering behind the fridge, which by the way is not where the issues was, it was in the freezer, he then said I needed a new Control Board and that part would be $720.32 + tax, but he would not be able to get the part for 2 weeks. I declined to proceed as I was very suspicious at this point, and unfortunately I had already signed off on the agreement to pay the $280 + tax for a total of $316.40, even though he essentially did nothing for that amount, and did not seem to know what he was doing (or did he?). He then said that if I changed my mind, he could get that part in a week at the latest, yet not 5 min before said it would be 2 weeks. I assume since I had declined to order the part to be installed he was attempting to change my mind, hence the time frame change.

I then proceeded to get a second opinion which yielded a much different result for significantly less The part that I did require was a "Thermostat Defrost", for $67.70 (inc tax) which was avail same day. Out of curiosity, I inquired as to the cost of a Control Board, which the legit company quoted $218.00; that tells you right there how much The A Team Appliance Repair company mark up their parts to their customers. Of course I was extremely frustrated by the fact that I just paid $316.00 for literally NOTHING. He was not even diagnosing in the right area. He did not even open the control board to see if it was malfunctioning, he was simply making it up as he want along.

I wish I would have thought to check the 'BBB site', and or 'Homestars' to see if there were any reviews; what I went through seems to be a consistent theme as I read through the other complaints. I was shocked. Unfortunately, many were mislead out of much more money than I was, simply because they trusted that their technician would fix their problem, but did not, and sadly they spent a lot of money on parts that they did not require given the appliance they supposedly fixed still did not work. When you call their customer service, it is evident that they have no interest in helping you, and when you ask to speak to the owner of the company, he of course is always in a meeting; and when they say you will get a call back from a supervisor, the call does not come. They will only accept cash or debit, which makes it much harder to recoup any kind of refund, which I suspect is the reason why they don't accept credit cards. I must say, I did think it was odd when they did not accept credit cards.

It is my belief that this company "The A Team Appliance Repair" knowingly mislead their customers into paying for nonsensical diagnostics, and unnecessary parts that are significantly marked up, all without really addressing the actual issue, which leaves you with the malfunction you started with, and paying for another company to actually repair your appliance. Their business practices are egregious to the customer and they should be investigated and have their license to do business revoked.

I have absolutely no problem paying for a service, but what I do have a problem with is a company that is knowingly committing fraud.

Terrible Experience

I am fuming. This service person charged us over$1,500 dollar to replace a part that when examined after replacement clearly did not need to be replaced! My wife challenged him when the old part came out and appeared to be fine and he flippantly dismissed the concern. When I later examined the part it became obvious to me that we had been swindled. To add insult to injury, we had to source the part ourselves because they were taking too long to source it!! We're not the appliance repair company and we sourced the part faster than they could!! Does this part look like it is worn out in this area?!

Oven Repair

They came to my home, did an inspection, told me they needed to charge $300 to fix the oven. Then after "fixing" told me it still did not work and need to order parts, cost around $1400 and need to pay almost $900 up front. I was told 3-4 weeks but almost 3 months later they have not called me to provide any update on when I can expect my parts and cancellation only if I pay cancellation fee, shipping, handling and restocking fees.... when I call them, their customer service reps are rude and do not call back when they say they will even though I have been polite and respectful at all times. They do not care and are not willing to help their customers, only willing to take their money and make excuses. Do not use this company!

for My subzero frideg

saw the reviews first and then called multiple companies, everybody was saying they can only come next week, i could not wait because it was a fridge. so i called them to see when they were available, tech showed the same day and before you know in less then 2 days my fridge was working fine. I guess i just prefer convenience over money. In addition the guy was proffesional that is a thing you dont see with these technicians.

Washer Repair

Do not use this company.
They showed up, did a diagnostic, said it would be 300 to fix the machine. I agreed and paid him. He spent another 10 minutes working on it and said it would be an additional 700 to actually fix the machine.
