Excavating reviews in Altoona
The guys who came out to do the work were awesome and overall, this company saved me around $750 from the next best option for oil tank removal / excavation
They called and told us that our air compressor was out and had to be replaced and the cost would be $335.00. We told them to go ahead and do the repair. Then they told us that the septic system really needed to be pumped and that would be an additional $550.00. I told them that we would have to wait on pumping the system and that it had only been about a year and a half since we last had it pumped. ( It shouldn't need pumping again that soon)
When we got home the next morning the alarm was still going off so I called them their next business day and had them come out to see why the alarm was still sounding. They told me that they would be out later in the afternoon to check the system. I told them fine that I had a quick errand to run in the morning but that I would be at home by the time they would be there. When I returned home, before afternoon, they were at my house and the technician had already been checking the system and said that the computer panel in the door was corroded and not functioning and needed to be replaced. I was skeptical since the other technician had just been at our home three days earlier and had not mentioned the problem. The new door panel cost $250.00 and they were planning on charging another service fee of $135.00 since they had to come out again. ( The reason they were out again was because the alarm wouldn't stop going off and the replacement of the door literally took 5 minutes) I told them that I was not going to pay $135.00 for a service fee that had initially been to recheck their work. They eventually took the service fee off and only charged us for the door.
Also, since I was skeptical about the authenticity of their claim that our system needed pumping I decided to call and get a second opinion. The other company came out and said that our system was fine and DID NOT need to be pumped any time soon. Also, I asked another person and they were in agreement that the system was fine.
Needless to say I will NOT call
