My wife and I needed to have some trees cut down in the backyard.
We hired a company that was working in the neighborhood.
They sent a technician over to our house to give us an estimate. I wanted them to cut down a large tree in the back yard and trim a few trees in the front yard. We agreed on a price and the crew was supposed to be here first thing on Monday morning. Unfortunately, they called to cancel on Monday and Tuesday. They finally showed up late Wednesday afternoon to start the job. It was raining lightly and the yard was full of mud and debris. As they were cutting a large branch off of the tree, a hunk of wood fell down on top of the AC unit outside. It hit the top of the air conditioner with a loud thud. I was standing outside when the incident occurred, and it sounded like a train wreck. I heard one of the guys yell and they turned off the chainsaw. I rushed over to the AC unit to see the damage. There was a giant dent on top of the AC unit and I could see one of the blades was mangled. I told the climber on the job that the damage would need to be fixed. I don’t know how much it’s going to cost to fix the damage, but I’m not going to pay for any of the tree work until they properly fix all of the damage. They should have been more careful when they were lowering the branch.
