[Resolved] Empire Carpet / services not as promised

1 MO, United States Review updated:

Salesman came to our home. Sold the product to us. When they came to install it was not as promised. When we questioned it they said the salesman was an independent contractor and it was not their problem he has misrepresented the carpet. They left with our old carpet torn out and tack strips on the floor. We had to hire another company at a must higher price and wait for carpet to come in. Filed a complaint with the better business bureau but nothing was done. We did discover that they advertise locally but are not even a based in Kansas City.

    I have never ever been so disappointed at a company... We purchased hardwood flooring 2 weeks ago, they were supposed install it on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On the Thursday the installers arrive at 11am with defective wood. The manager "Rex " was called he was an ###. He tried to tell us that the wood had a rustic texture and that was what we ordered. I told him that I was not stupid and that the wood was defective and would not let it be installed. He did not care what measures we had gone through in the past 2 weeks trying to get ready for this install and lost 2 days off work.
    We returned the flooring and ordered a different wood to be delivered on Friday we get a call at Friday that the wood that we ordered the day before -was out of stock . Disappointed is an understatement !!! We are sitting here with our house all packed up and ready for the installation and EMPIRE could not produce. Of course, they are trying to sell us a different product that is more expensive, not on their sale ( 50/50/50)... They are a rip off company, they do not care about their customers, and they only try to reel you in give you a price then try to sale you something totally different then what you ordered. NEVER AGAIN!!!
    Oh to make matter worse, the cannot refund my money for 7-10 business days.
    The only person that was professional and on time and sold us what he thought the company could produce was Mike.
    San Antonio watch out for these scammers especially Rex
