WARNING!! STAY AWAY FROM THESE PRICE GOUGERS!

WARNING! STAY AWAY FROM THESE PRICE GOUGERS and RIP OFF con artists!If I could leave negative stars I would.I am forced to even give them 1 star.First off,I only called them because they were advertised in Sarasotas recommended book of service people.When I called them,my first question was. Are you a broker?dDo you use your own employees,or subcontract out?I was told they are a large company and they have and use only there own employees.NEVER USE A BROKER.So I booked for a service call and they came to give me a written quote and start labor if I agreed with the price.
I purchased double French doors for my office.I wanted them to remove the single door and open the wall an additional 29 INCHES.Then install the new doors ,do some mud and paint to blend.And I removed all my under mount cabinet lights and wanted them to wire in the led puck lights.The wires were already to have new lights installed.He looked at it went to the car and came back in with a written estimate..He wanted a total of $7600 dollars..He wanted $2800 for the 4 cabinet lights and $4800 for the doors.!I looked at him and said are you out of your mind? Tell me how you came up with that price? He said I talked with the office and that’s what they said.I said tell me how you justify that price? He said well I have to add something for myself too..Tell me how a company that doesn’t sub contract would have an employee say this? I threw him out of the house.I immediately called the office to complain..They said they would have a manager call me..To this day no one else called ..Now here’s the real gem..I called another contractor.He installed my door,spackled,painted for $1500 and get this,he wired my puck lights for $200! So from these crooks called THE HANDYMAN COMPANY i went from getting $@!#% of $7600 to an honest person that charged me $1700..I hope I can add my photos of there paperwork at the end of this..If not,BE WARNED,and STAY AWAY FROM THE HANDYMAN COMPANY.Always shop around and do your due diligence!
