    This is the perfect example of what not to do and just be honest about your pricing. I started out 20 years ago and said to myself that I want to deliver: Honesty, quality, best service to my clients possible, the very best of equipment and cleaning supplies. I have always guaranteed my work, because I want new clients to feel comfortable with our services. I have had clients for years referring new clients to us.

    Whenever someone asks me to refer a carpet cleaning company (for a location well out of my service area) I tell them go to the yellow pages or internet like 411.ca and look for a cleaner with the IICRC logo, although I still cannot guarentee how good they will be, at least that tells customers that this is not a fly-by-night company and most likely has a truckmount.

    It is just utterly disgusting how these shady ppl opperate. I am happy to see that news crew stuck by their guns and said we don't have the extra money but want what the ad promised pricing wise.

    As far as the Bait and Switchers go, they may be a major problem in our line of work but the consumer who calls them has it coming. Most of these low life consumers also call legitimate carpet cleaners like we but choose the bait of the switcher due to the low price. I don't feel empathy for these consumers, who are more than likely, bottom feeding, mud sucking opportunists who are looking for a desperate person who will work for extremely low wages. That is what they are hoping for, to find a man so despondent that they can prey on him and get their carpets cleaned for $25. Low lifes find one another.

    Deron, I totally disagree with you about most "consumers have it coming". I price shop all the time especially now that we are in a recession. Matter of fact I just got done negotiating with Walmart on bags of recycled tires that are turned into mulch. Walmart wanted $10 per bag and I got them for $2.75 per bag. I just had to ask a manager if they will take this price instead of what they wanted.

    There is nothing wrong with price shopping but I do expect not to be ripped off by some idiot that has other intentions. It is human nature for us to look for killer deals. I do this day in and day out and have found fantastic companies that offer great services or products for a whole lot less than the brand name guys.
