The weather has been crazy. This next cool front rolling in will do us in!
Fall clean-ups haven't gone so well for me, I've had a lowballer following me around this fall. I priced a terrible clean up for over $600, this guy did it for two. I know because the woman called me back and told me who he was, the price he charged, and that it took him three days with some help. I was happy I missed that one once she called telling all his business.
