Two for the Price of One
Yesterday was a good day. As stated earlier I had Big-O-Tires fix some stuff on my truck. Well it seemed that the sales representative told me they had the wrong tires in stock. Lucky for me those were better tires and they gave me the tires they had in stock for the price of the tires I wanted to get on. It ended up being like I got two tires for the price of one. And let me tell you the upgraded tires were very nice!
Well last night we went to Homedepot to get a price quote on cabinets, and wow I was amazed. Not amazed by prices, quality or staff. I was simply amazed that I knew more than the guy designing our cabinets did. He could barely add and multiply. Not to mention he guessed on almost everything. So we are sticking with Darby's Cabinets here in Denver. He is a local business man who does custom cabinets. His motto is (and this is on a free screwdriver he gives out), "We screw the other guys and pass the savings to you."
The nice thing was I went to HomeDepot to check it out cause he challenged me to. Home depot wanted $4,000 with 10% off for our cabinets, for crap quality at that in the wrong colors. That did not even include the bar we want to put there. At Darby's he quoted us $2,600 for more linear feet, at least 6 more linear feet. Nearly 50% off, and they will be better quality and exactly what we want as it is custom made.
Needless to say I am disappointed and pleased at the same time. I am excited that I know we are going to get an awesome deal on cabinets, but very disappointed that HomeDepot charges that much overhead and I feel bad for anyone who gets screwed into buying cabinets from HomeDepot. On top of that HomeDepot tried to force warranties, installation, removal, and for us to "buy a measure". Where as Darby Cabinets never even tried to force anything on to us and explained everything in great detail, while showing he knew what he was doing and was not trained for 1 hour and called a "designer".
Enough of that rambling, I will make a blog dedicated to Darby's Cabinets after we make the purchase on my main blog. Hope everyone else is having a good day.
