I own a bunch of apartment buildings and am used to getting new carpet. I have a good idea of how much it costs and the quality associated with the brand of carpet.

I invited Empire for a estimate and the guy showed up trying to act as if he was some kind of carpet guru.

I asked him what brand of carpet Empire would be installing and he could not name it. How can you NOT KNOW what brand of carpet you are going to install but still be able to price someone?

He measures the 2 rooms and living room that were going to get carpet and gives me a price...get this...of 4,000 (with the lowest quality pad they offer). He then says that he has installation available the next day. He also says that he can knock $500.00 off the price....

That is when I asked him to leave. I had gotton similar sized apartments carpeted for $900.00 with the best padding. He said that I was trying to negotiate and that he could do it for $3,000 and that my $900.00 carpet was probably a "crappy" quality...This guy was a joke.

I gave him a call a few days ago to see what $900.00 carpet looks like...he has not returned my call obviously.

Bottomline: DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH EMPIRE they are money parasites.

They will tell you a high price upfront and then try to knock it down by a few hundred to make you feel good. They will also try to use high pressure tactics to pressure you into buying right then and there.

Do not do business with these people, they are NOT HONEST.
