The Guy is reliable for snow removal. It's worth the money!

I'm still on the fence so far. The guys that have cut my lawn a few times don't seem to know how to trim after I've brought this to their attention a few times. I don't like going through the process of finding someone else , but when I don't get a response after a week, that's just unprofessional.

Review by in Southfield, MI
This is the second year that I have The Guy to do my lawn. The first year they were always reliable on did a decent job. Unfortunately, I have neighbors that are retired and content on making my life miserable if I don't adhear 100% of their expectations of what my lawn should look like. This being said in the start of the year I told the company that I wanted a weekly cut, they were apparently confused and missed a week. It's spring, so my grass has grown like weeds, over 12 inches in length in some spots for sure. So I called on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday with the constant promise that they would be out that day or the next. It's Friday now and I still haven't seen them, and now I can't go outside because my neighbors are harassing me about my lawn and have called the city on me. Which they could because my lawn was not to code, it was completely embarassing. I have been upset and the poor customer service has upset me even more. Wanted to like this company, but because of there lack of reliability it has made my life miserable. Disappointing.
Response by The Guy : This customer included a photo in their complaint, and it is true they received a patchy cut. However, we fired the technician that performed the service and we discounted their cut price by half, meaning she only paid $15.00 for the service she was unhappy with. I am unsure how that qualifies as bad customer service? It is true it took us several days to get back to her, but we have hundreds of accounts to service, it sometimes takes a few days to route back. We are also dealing with spring rain storms pushing our route around. I don't think it's fair we are given a bad review, because this customers neighbors are unreasonable.

Very little experience dealing with the business. Property maintained is not my residence so only view it few times a month. The neighbors' responses have been very positive to the maitenance and schedule.
