Never, Never, Never Ask U.S. Buildings For a Quote
Earlier this year, I contacted several different vendors of prefab steel buildings about a quote. I can honestly say that all of them but one behaved in a professional manner. They told me what it was going to cost, did a bit of a sales job on the advantages of their product--but when I finally decided that the cost was excessive at this time, that was the end of it.
U.S. Buildings, however, does not take no for an answer. They have called me at least a dozen times since I told them I was no longer in the market for a building. Each time, I explain, with decreasing politeness, that I am not going to be buying a building, and that they should take me off their calling list. And it never happens.
I do not (and cannot) believe that this kind of high pressure, refuse to follow instructions approach is actually ever successful. Or are there a lot of people easily pressured into buying stuff over the phone?
