EZ Furniture Assembly / Unauthorized charges

1 United States Review updated:

I contacted Chris Purnell owner of EZ Furniture Assembly/NYC Handyman. I was looking to get an estimate for a kitchen makeover. His policy is to charge for estimates. I agreed to a $60 fee which would include the estimate, and a computer generated layout of my kitchen with design options etc.. He sent his project manager out, measurements were taken etc. I was to here back from Mr. Purnell within two business days with both the estimate and the layouts for my kitchen. The $60 was to go towards the job if given to Mr. Purnell. I never heard from this company or Mr. Purnell again. Numerous calls and emails went unreturned. When i sent out an email explaining that course of action i would pursue against him i magically received a phone call. He stated that he did not have me on file but that he would 'investigate' my claim and call me in a few days. I never heard back from him except for a email that threatened me with legal action for slander if i preceded with complaining to various agencies. I have a signed receipt from him for the $60. I have not received anything of service and was 'rippedoff' for $60.

    I disagree! I used EZ Furniture Assembly & Interior Innovations to renovate my home. They assembled and installed an Ikea kitchen with a tile backsplash and floor. They also did our bathroom with a new sink and removed the tub and placed a standing tiled shower with a pedastal sink and track lighting. They also assembled all our furniture from Ikea and even added a floating wood floor throughout our bedroom and living room. To Mr. Purnell and his team I can't say THANKS enough!

    I too had a bad experience with Mr. Purnell. Work started 2 weeks later then promised, workers were unexperienced, work was sloppy at best. Owner Chris Purnell could not have cared less..he had my money and that was that. I have seen these kind of people before..there called "con artists".

    Please check out any contractor before you hire them. Check references and in this case, criminal background and records in both NY and PA.
