[Resolved] Empire Flooring / high quote

Holly Springs, United States Review updated:

After remodeling our old farm house, I got a quote from Home Depot for carpet in two bedrooms. I called Empire for a quote and was so surprised to get an extremely high quote for a cheaper carpet. When I showed the salesman my carpet sample from Home Depot and their quote, he went back to his car and showed me a better quality carpet sample and said he would lower the price to match Home Depot.with his "family discount". I asked where were the 2 free rooms they advertised and got stupid answers like-We do better work, and we can come tomorrow and you have to wait 3-4 weeks for Home Depot. When I told him I wanted to think about it and let him know later, he continued to pressure me to pay a deposit. I asked if I could cancel and he said yes, and it was in writing.
So I paid him a deposit of $50 to get rid of him. When he left I immediately called the number to cancel and complained about his sales tactics and the high price. The next day a representative called to offer a better price. I had already called Home Depot and they had the carpet in 5 days and came the following day to install. BEWARE, they are scammers and the salesman only has his commission in mind when giving a quote!

    Empire flooring - screwed
    United States

    cashed my check for 200.00(checked with bank). Then took balance out on my credit card, (checked with them, took the money there too.) promised to install today, 6/1/09. workers come out with only half the order written up. They did'nt even know they were to tear up a sub floor and ply wood. so they couldn't do the job. so here I sit with kitchen stuff in my living room! and I'm told they cancelled my order! What the _ _ _ _?
