A Cut Above Tree Service Tree Removal Review from Thomasville, North Carolina

ALL AROUND TREE SERVICE. Tommy Sexton and brother James Sexton gave me a great quote on taking down some dead trees. Said they had just merged their businesses. Paid them some $$ up front, signed a written contract with them and they never showed up to do the job. Gave them another chance after Tommy picked up his phone (after 2 days and about 15 calls) and didn't show for the 2nd time. STEER CLEAR, is right

It's a joke these people tried to get the lowest price from me as they could. when i put them at the bottom of he work order list they started calling me threatening me and they even fired me due to not jumping at there command.

even though i had only taking small deposits that stated no refund !!! They signed it and got what they deserved there are plenty of customers that love us and our work.so don't be so cheap. pay someone what a job is worth and you might have better luck. Learn to talk to someone nicely and you might not lose no more money.

i was glad you were in beach of contract and happy to see you both lose your mony. I also noticed you two didnt tell them how i had worked for you before and you loved our job and thats why you called us again.

i didnt scam you! you broke the contract i was just happy to see you lose your deposit

I am truly sorry that you were scammed by Tommy Sexton. I am his brother and want you to know I was not involved in that matter or job at all.

I had a drug addiction which landed me in prison for a year and thank God it's saved my life. so sir to let you know I was in prison on that date.

Since then from the day I've gotten out I have done nothing but try to redeem my name be a productive citizen a family man and I have built a five-star tree service shoot. What upsets me the most is he is still at it going around using my name and a friend of ours if you have any questions feel free to call me at 336 307-**** I would be glad to assist you in any way I can

It's eleven months later and James Sexton is still swindling people. The name of his "company" changes regularly.

When he came to my house he was calling himself "Arbortech". I gave him a partial payment upfront and he never came back. There are several felony warrants out for his arrest but the police are clearly not looking for him. I say this because his wife Tara Sexton, better known as "Christy", is on Facebook with 255 friends.

His full name is James Edward Sexton (DOB 11-5-71). He is usually staying at a cheap motel.

For those I have wronged I am truly sorry. I was shot and was prescribed pain medication and that turned out to be a gateway drug two opiate.

I normally don't tell people my private life but I feel that you deserve a reason. I was charged with 35 felonies finally plead the four and I spent over a year in prison for the first time in my life. however it was the best thing that had ever happened to me it probably saved my life. I have worked extremely hard and I have built a very successful company we are rated 5 stars.

Some of these reviews is saying Brothers and it was not I James it was with Tommy due to being incarcerated. I am a reborn Christian and I hope you will find it in your heart to forgive me. I am paying restitution and believe me they socked it to me.

If I mess up my probation of 6 years then I have to do five years sentences three times back to back that would be 15 years if that brings you any satisfaction. I am truly sorry for my conduct that was not me I am a very loving and good-hearted person and I deeply apologize if I cost you any stress

"A Cut Above" now "All around" Tree service

We were taken for a ride....paid a lot of money up front and never got work done. Even though it was not the whole amount up front we lost a couple thousand. Steer clear of Tommy Sexton. Apparently when his first company went bankrupt (A Cut Above) he managed to open another (All Around Tree Service). New name - Same game! We lost a lot of money. Tried to give him every chance to stand up and do the right thing but first one cell phone was disconnected then the other wasn't answered and has a full mailbox. WE have not heard from him in over a month.

Tommy Lee Sexton 47 years old born February 18th 1974 is currently being held in the Davidson county jail Lexington North Carolina for of course obtaining property under false pretenses and taking advantage of the elderly if you have been a victim please contact them and do your part to protect the community

Guest

Tommy Sexton just took my wife and I for $3,000 it seems this is a regular thing for him to pray upon the elderly. We will be pressing charges not for justice but to protect our fellow citizens I suggest you do the same or this delinquent will continue to pray upon our community

Guest

A Cut Above Tree Service Tree Removal Review from Anniston, Alabama

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
They quoted me a great price on having a large tree removed from my front yard. He planned to come out by 7am. 9am rolls around and they still weren't here. I called and a man named Steve then informed me that my appointment had "slipped his mind". I told him I was pissed off that i had cancelled other appointments to be available for him to do the work and he apologized and said that he'd be there within 3 hours to complete the job. I waited for the rest of the day and Steve did not show up or call. After a negative FB post, the owners wife called and said she would see what she could do to make it right. She called me back and said that Steve said that I cursed at him and so he would not perform the job. I said that I was pissed off so maybe he counted that as me cursing him. He should have told me he wouldn't do the job instead of apologizing to me and telling me he'd come out within 3 hours

Company Agreed to Provide Service and Never Showed or Called

I happened upon this company by accident. When someone came to pick up some furniture I was donating, one of the men handed me a business card and asked me if I needed any tree work done. It just so happens that I did, and he quoted me a great price on having a rather large tree removed from my front yard. I called him back a couple of weeks later and told him I'd like him to complete the work. We planned for him to come out on a Tuesday morning, and he said he'd be there by 7am. On the day in question, 9am rolls around and no one had yet gotten to my home. I called, quite upset that I had been waiting for 2 hours already, explained the situation, and was told that someone would call me back shortly. I got a phone call from a man named Steve about 15 minutes later who then informed me that my appointment had simply "slipped his mind". I was quite furious at this point and I told him that I had cancelled a couple of other appointments I had for the day to ensure that I would be available for the work to be completed, and I was pissed off that my time was not considered valuable and that he had forgotten about my appointment. He apologized and said that he'd be there within 3 hours to complete the job. I waited for the rest of the day and not only did Steve not show up, but he didn't even call. I made a couple of posts on the company FaceBook page hoping to get a response. After a week had gone by, I made one last post telling them that they were going to be getting some bad reviews from me. A woman who is the wife of one of the owners called me and asked me to explain the situation to her. I did, and she seemed concerned that there had been a problem and she said she would see what she could do to make it right. She called me back a bit later in the day and said that this Steve fellow, who is a co-owner of the business, said that I cursed at him and was extremely rude and he would not perform the job. First of all, I did NOT curse him. I did say that I was pissed, so maybe he counted that as me cursing him. Otherwise, I have no idea where he gets off saying that. The way that I see it, is that I had every right to be upset that I had made arrangements for him to do the work he had agreed to do, and he didn't show. If he had some sort of issue with me, he should have explained that then and told me he wouldn't do the job instead of apologizing to me and telling me he'd come out within 3 hours. At that point, I had essentially been stood up by him twice in one day, and the second time he outright lied to me.

Almost Got Scammed But Thanks To This Review Page, It Saved My Pockets

on yesterday April 1st, 2013 I reveive a ring on my door bell and it was a man that was in a white pickup truck with two other guys, which stayed in the truck. This guy introduced himself as Tommy and handed me a green flyer inquiring about doing some work with my trees in the back yard. I had just had this conversation Friday about having my trees trimmed and thought, what a great opportunity to go in back to see how much the free estimate would cost. He quoted me an price I could not resist and was actually going to have him complete the job today,4/2/13, the next day. Well, he asked for money upfront of 35% of the cost. I asked him if he had a website, photos of his work or any proof that he could to the job as we discussed. He had nothing, no documentation, etc. He told me he would be done with the job within one day, which would be cleaning out a wooded area, prunning trees, etc. I told a friend about this and he suggested that I do research because most people does not ask for money/payment until the job is completed. Well, I called him back last night and told him that I was going to cancel the appt. today because I did not feel comfortable paying him my money and do not know what type of work he does. After researching, he had other complaints and the approach from the other people were simular to the exact same way he approached me. He even called me at 6:30 am this morning to see if I had changed my mind. I told him, if he go do the job, then he will be paid based on what we discussed how he would do the job and make my back yard look. He refused without money. He is not even BBB acredited. Have not insurance, etc. I would suggest anyone not to agree and pay people who walk up to you and offer a job that expect money upfront. I am glad I did my research!

This scam artist is in North Carolina. Specifically, Winston-salem, High-point, and Thomasville area.

As a ex General contractor if you do not get pay 65% up front I will not except the contract, that pays you taxes and help for the job needed completed. Atlease you can pay your help .you have to pay your employees regardless if the homeowner pay the contract. Thats why we need 65% up front.

Maybe that's why you're an "ex General contractor". A professional is established and has the resources to complete the job without the necessity of a whopping 65% up front.

Guest

I was conned by this man. I thought anyone that would have flyers printed up on cardstock must be legit.

NOOOOOO! Do not give him the time of day.

Tommy Sexton is a SCAMMER

Mr.Tommy Sexton of A Cut Above Tree and Stump Service was hired to cut down 2 trees. He did the job, but damaged my property in the process. Seemed like a nice guy, but obviously not a professional. Totally misrepresents the good honest american worker. Mr. Sexton promised he would come back to repair it. Five times Mr. Sexton was asked to complete the repair. five times he made excuses why it was not done and promised he would complete it ASAP, and he has not been seen nor heard from since. There are plenty of reliable tree services in the area, DO NOT hire this guy.

Did not complete job.

Mr. Tommy Sexton of A Cut Above Tree and Stump Service was hired to cut deadwood from two trees in my yard. Debris was to be cleaned up and prepared for pickup by the city. It was not. Twice Mr. Sexton was asked to complete the cleanup, twice he made excuses why it was not done and promised he would complete it ASAP, and he has not been seen nor heard from since. There are plenty of reliable tree services in the area, do not hire this company. If I had simply done a quick search prior to hiring him I would have been warned away from him. It is my fault for paying in full prior to the completion of the work.
