Default Service Smart

I know I am not the first to be burned by service smart but they should be stopped. They solicited me on the very day I closed on house and I foolishly signed up with them. Pure hell. Never cut grass on time. Their workers have no knowledge about proper plant trimming and in the end your yard will be ruined.
They survive on new residents in The Villages and are operating on somewhat of a Ponzi scheme. Too bad we can't all get together and file a class action suit. Sorry I really needed to vent. New residents please be aware.
Found out I am dumber than I look.

Well, you're in a good crowd. Service Smart has fooled many people. This is al least their third name change. Probably time for a new name pretty soon. Regardless, they'll be great in the beginning and then go from sad to pathetic to unforgivable. Sorry you got rooked in.

Service smart is the worst of the worst, do not care about you after they get their payment in full. We made that mistake, do not even call you back, service house when they want too and that is very few times a month. Do not hire service smart they suck.

The first thing every new villager should be told at closing is NEVER, NEVER pay in advance for a year long contract just to save a few bucks. Only trust a service that will let you pay by the month and contractors who only get paid when the job is completed and you are satisfied. We will have thousands on new villagers moving here over the next 5 years and they all need to be told.

However I have had Superior Services of Florida to do pest control, termite protection, and fertilization. I pay annually and never had a problem with them and they have been servicing me for 12 years. However, I would caution others to be very careful when paying for a full year.

Terrible,they acknowledge that they owe me a refund of$190 and promise to pay me soon. This has gone on for the last 6 months. Very unethical company.

There are currently about 200+ unhappy customers myself being one of them. We paid for the entire year and they have only cut our lawn twice and whenever we call inquiring as to why no one has come their phone representative lies and says someone will be there today and no one shows up. They should be banned from doing business in TV and should refund money for services not rendered.
