I wanted to hire someone to take care of the lawn for me because they'll do a professional job, much better than what I can do. Shopped around with many companies, and A 1 Landscaping seems to be the most expensive one out of all the ones I checked. I doubt their service will be so much better than everyone else. Didn't give them a chance to prove that to me and saved a bunch of money.
I needed to have my basement finished, so I had lots of people coming to my house to provide me estimates. J T B Construction sent two guys to my house. After listening to my idea of how the basement should look like and after they evaluated the unfinished basement, they quoted me $15K for the job. Guess how much it cost me to finish the basement using a different contractor? Only $7500. Guess they thought I was stupid and really wanted to make money off me.
Good EArth Natural Goods is a very interesting shop to visit. They recommend people to not take medicines, but use herb and natural food to help one's body to fight viruses or deceases. They have a wide selection of natural food for people to choose from and they also give out advice as to what natural food might heal this and that for free. Some of their advices worked great for me.
Just like the name suggests, they sell guns, all kinds of guns like hand guns, rifles and shotguns. The have a good selection of goods, but their prices are just too expensive. You can probably find things much cheaper in other stores. Unless it's something you really want and couldn't find somewhere else. But I'd still suggest you look online like in Ebay, and you probably will find it much cheaper.
These guys are really the best in guitars. They have all kinds of guitars for you to choose from and the are also a professional guitar repair shop. In their shop, they hae a free recital hall and teaching studios, so you can just visit their store to listen to some nice perfornances. They also offer 2 free lessons with any guitar purchase, which is very nice!
I had problem with my garage door, so I had someone from A 1 Custom Garage Door to come and give me free estimate. Their price is a little bit high (not too much), but I really wanted to get this taken care of, so I had him work on it. Everything seemed fine until right after the service warranty expired. Don't know if they had anything with it, but I am sure I won't be using their service again.
I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for a queen size bed, so I decided to visit The Mattress Department. They have many selections of different mattresses that are much cheaper than big name furniture stores. I finally picked a mismatched box and mattress from them and was able to get even more discount. Once you put the bed sheet on, no one will ever see that they are mismatched, so I didn't care at all. Glad to get a good deal on cheap mattresses.
I received an coupon in the mail for 20% off at Bassett Furniture store, so I went there to look at what they have to offer. They do have a good collection of furnatures with lots of colors and materials you can specify, but their prices are so expensive that even after you deduct the 20% off, it's still rediculously high. I could have bought the same kind of furnations at RC Willey much cheaper without any coupons or promotions.
My furnace had some problem and we don't have enough heat in a very cold winter, so I called around for furnace repair shops. Utah Valley Heating & Cooling's price is not the cheapest, but they offered to fix it right or it's free, and I felt more confident about their service. Turned out it was a good cohice. The not only fixed the problem, also gave me good tips on how to maintain and how to cut down on gas bill. Very happy.
When we bought our first home, the carpet in the kitchen and the dining area looked terrible, so we decided to put on hardwood floor. Shopped around for a while and finally decided to use Nielson Jerry Hardwood Floors because they had competitive prices. Turned out they not only have good prices but also have great quality. We are very happy with the hardwood floor they put in even though we had to live outside of the house for one night for the glue to dry out.
