Review by Ned K. in Buford, GA
Paid thousands - only time It was needed it did not start. Cover broke off of exterior panel while checking it during hurricane Maria. I have emailed photos of the broken piece, had maintenance techs request it in writing and three years later it is still not fixed. Customer service is terrible and I have no faith the generator will work when needed.

Review by in Charlottesville, VA
I contracted with Canter Power Systems, who installed our 20Kw generator in 2011, to (1) diagnose & repair faulty transfer switches and (2) to level the generator unit which, due to their installation flaw, was leaning heavily. The Canter maintenance tech quoted us $180 to level the unit. Canter subcontracted the work out & their subcontractors did not perform any electrical diagnosis of the faulty transfer switches - they simply turned the power OFF and ON several times - and they decided on their own, and without our prior knowledge or approval, to install a cement pad atop the lava rocks. Then, we received a bill for $615 from the subcontractor. We spoke with Canter who refused to do anything, & so I got counseling and was informed me that all I had to pay was the $180 - I do not owe anything for the cement pad that was not ordered & since they did not perform the necessary diagnosis & the transfer switch problem persists, I will get a different contractor to come in & do the work properly and satisfactorily, and will cease being a Canter customer. They may be "fanatically focused on outrageous customer service at every step of the purchase and installation process" but after the installation, when you have a problem, their customer service is unacceptable from where we sit.

It's a family owned business that is fanatically focused on outrageous customer service at every step of the purchase and installation process.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
