They were wonderful and fantastic. My job was just a small project for a very small tree. I asked if he would work on our tree needs when he was in the neighborhood with some other larger projects, which he did. It was very nice. They trimmed up a dead tree that was rather tall—I just couldn't get to it.
I used Odd Job. There was a rainstorm coming, so they came out on Sunday with a crew of guys and a crane. They got the tree off the house and took it away for me. They were fantastic. I'd give them an A+.
They did tree removal work for me, and I thought they did an excellent job. I'd give them an A.
They're awesome. My other tree guys that I had to have come out were misogynistic, but Odd Job wasn't that way. They were awesome, and they were good to deal with. They were taking off some dead stuff. I just appreciated that they did not talk down to me just because I was a woman. They were good—they did a good job, and they were honest.
Everything has been fine, and we don't have any complaints. The guys did a really good job. I was very pleased with their work. They called and let me know when they were running behind, so they kept me pretty well informed. I'd definitely use them again and probably will in the near future. I just had some trees that needed to be pruned. I have a power line that runs down through the middle of my property, and I had some dead trees that I was worried about falling on the line, so they cleared those. I also had a couple of tree limbs that were actually lying on the roof of my house, and they removed those. I would give them an excellent rating.
They were wonderful. They removed a tree from the back of my yard. Their customer service was very good. I liked that I didn't have to be here. They just did it and billed me—that was great.
They were on time and really easy to deal with. They cut some dead branches back and kind of cleaned up the underparts of some trees. I got a recommendation from a friend of mine. I would give Odd Job an A+.
They did what they said they were going to do, and they did it when they said they were going to do it. I liked that they were flexible as far as me asking for a little bit more of this or a little bit less of that, and they were very easy to work with. We had a lot of tree and yard stuff done.
Odd Job was responsive, and they did a great job. They cut a tree down for me. I would give them an A.
I have used Odd Job a number of times, and they have always been good. They were recommended by my neighbor. They pretty much come in the time frame they specify, and they're very professional in what they do. They took a tree down and did some pruning. The last time they came, I think they removed some tree limbs and trimmed a lot of trees back. They get an A grade from me.
