Couple of days ago I got another call: we hired another refinisher who didn't show up to start on the project for two days. The furniture and appliances are out, could you please come and save us?
No, thank you. I have enough work to keep me busy for a while. I asked them why they hired that guy and if they checked his reviews.
Anyways I suggested to bring all furniture in and hire (and wait for) a reputable company as it is impossible to get someone decent on very short notice!
