Default Beware Bowles Services for Lawn Services

Bowles Services requires quarterly payments and they owe us money for the weeks missed. They are rude and do not take the time to do your lawn correctly. Please beware of this company!

That sounds like they may have some connections and/or former employees/owners...to the old 'Stellar' company.

I made the mistake of using them when first getting here and even though they've split/changed names several times since (e.g. 'Service Smart/??') since...the same business practices continue.

Many of these businesses are nothing more than a guy who buys business cards. So for $20 you are in business.

Our guy who we were happy with. He was reliable. We paid him on a monthly basis and we used him for two years. He just disappeared. No reply to calls etc.

So in peak season we needed to find a replacement. I would not even consider any of the people who demand payment by the quarter. There are at least one that demands payment by six months, actually he tries to get payment for the year.

We all make mistakes BUT, we should remember with any business, before they are paid, you are in a far stronger position than after they are paid and are well ahead of you.

The line that they have to pay for........... What they are saying is that people who sell to them know from their history they are not reliable or trustworthy
