Twice in the last two days I have been visited by a door-to-door sales person from Ecoshield Pest Solutions. First time I got the standard, “We’re on your street tomorrow, I have a real deal for you because we’ll be here anyway” that type of thing. I sent him away as I BS’d him with the “need to talk to my better half” thing and he promised he’d come back later. I immediately hopped on my favorite search engine and the reviews are amazing. Complaints about the high pressure sales, about the “we’ll be in your area” lies, about the dodgy service (like spraying one side of your house for 5 minutes) and how you get scammed into a year contract that’s impossible to get out of. Can I also mention the number of closed franchises around the country, the fact that they changed their name a while ago? Don’t forget to read about the lawsuits!May 23, 2023 at 4:31 pm #1064176
They just came by my house in the Alaska Junction area today, so I guess they’re still at it! “I guess you’ve seen my truck down on the corner while I do some work for Robin…”May 24, 2023 at 10:18 am #1064242
I had a kid come by last week from them. I pointed to my large “no soliciting” sign on my door. He said he wasn’t soliciting. Then what are you doing here? Please leave now. He didn’t leave. I got angry and said “get the F off my property!” he still didn’t leave. I shut the door. The next day another kid from same company. I just shut the door. A pity these kids could only find this job to do.May 26, 2023 at 10:26 pm #1064400
Same thing happened to me a few days ago in Sunrise Heights, so they must have been canvassing WS that day. I have a No Soliciting sign on my door, plus they rang my doorbell, which riled up my dogs, so I was already irritated. When I asked the guy if he was soliciting and gestured to my sign, he said no and started up with the “Your neighbor two doors down has rats and we’re just alerting the neighbors…” I said goodbye and shut the door. I didn’t think door-to-door sales even worked anymore, but going by all the one star reviews on Yelp, apparently they make enough sales to keep it going.
