I just had one of Leaffilter's sleasy sales people over at my place. They basically use any sales tactic to get the sale. Here are a couple things I have noticed:
-Puts down the other competitors and shows you how theirs is better.
-Says installers are employees. Just search Craigslist. You can see this is false. http://imgur.com/a/ACxhK
-Says they have a job in the area tomorrow and tries to get you scheduled quickly.
-No set price per foot. Starts off very high to gauge you.
-Calls "manager" on speaker phone to negociate prices. Says he is tryng to get you on a commercial price.
-Does not provide a business card or contact information.
-Price is for cash only. Says he needs to charge more for credit card.
-Shows you how great they rated in reviews such as Consumer Reports.
-High pressure to get you to sign the contract.
-Says they were the inventor of the micro mesh technology.
-Kept talking about the 50 year silicone they use.
-I could tell he had no experience with gutters/roofs.
-Started getting desperate when I said no. Sob story about his family.
-Took up the whole kitchen with his ***.
-Didn't care that he was encroching on our dinner time.
-No logo on vehicle or uniform representing Leaffilter.
-Drove from 3 hours away to meet.
I would love to hear from actual sales people to add to the list. I am sure you are trained on such tactics and forced to make a sale at any cost. A legitimate company wouldnt put you through this.
