Dragonlily Gardens took my $10,000 deposit on Feb 3, 2016, promised sod would be installed in 2 weeks. I could not get Kayla to return calls, show up to perform work, or return the deposit. Do not pay in advance, Kayla uses paid customer money to fund her non-profit charity work. See her facebook page, all activities in the last 3 months are documented. Kayla worked for me a couple of years ago and work was done quickly and as discussed, and I paid her at the end of the job. Do not pay Kayla in advance of work performed, I don't think she is a proper manager of money or her schedule. Kayla is unprofessional , I have given her so many options to resolve this mess, and she has nothing but excuses and delays.

Least helpful group of people that I've ever dealt with. I assume that their job training involves tips on agitating customers and businesses with a side course on offering little to no help or resolution. In this day and age, how is this still a thing?
Response from the owner - 4 months ago
Hi Mike. As you know, BBB is not an enforcement agency. We don't have the power to make a business or a consumer comply to or accept a resolution. If an amicable resolution is not reached through our efforts then we judge it Administratively Resolved, meaning there is not a lot more we can do beyond arbitration. We are a terrific, and free resource offered to the public should they wish to reach a resolution with a business before the idea of litigation gets tossed around. However this review gives no indication to your issue. Please feel free to email me at evan@mbc.bbb.org.

101 of How to ratchet money out of business owners; Allow unsubstantiated criticism against companies and offer the company a way to have them removed; for a price. Sounds like a racket used by a very famous syndicate in Italy - except they dont have to knock on doors

Though out my otherwise unremarkable life, I for whatever reason relied on the well entrenched myth that one could always rely on the BBB to make it right. It would seem that 'times' and how high they hold the bar has changed. Read the BBB website fine print for a reality check (and watch ABC documentary "BBB - Pay for an 'A') They are very careful not to tell you they have zero enforcement authority as to 'participation', mediation, nor arbitration for non - BBB members, - they being a substantial number of businesses. It also won't take long to discover that notwithstanding indisputable evidence against their codrey of paying dubious business owner cum customers they are transparently loathe to lower the rating of these businesses, even when caught red handed. In my seemingly not infrequent case; Surrey Honda rolls back the odometer, sells you $1978. worth of 'Extended Mechanical Warranty' that doesn't exist, $274.charge for installation of imposed optional eqpmt that never happened, provides fraudulent mechanical inspection reports, - the vehicle having no lights, no steering and no front brakes and a prodigious engine leak immediately after purchase, - refusal to make legally compulsory declaration of any of this, and then just to cover their tracks refuses to provide any and all purchase transaction documents. I got all of this for $30,000. My complaint generates tepid enquiry by BBB, (amounting to leaving an unanswered voicemail message to the business owner). BBB then closes the file as "Unresolved". Immediately prior the same Surrey Honda dealer sells a vehicle to a couple, who after paying for it return to pick it up the same afternoon pursuant to pre-delivery prep, - finding it has been resold to someone else for a higher price. Further, despite a lengthy history of really egregious complaints and reviews BBB reduces their rating from an 'A+' to an 'A', then to no rating whatsoever, so not to offend. Only recently to further cloud the water, they assess the company an F then a D-, and only in the last couple of weeks back to an A. Huhh? One it seems does not want to upset a potential paying 'Member'. Arguably discouraging, (except for dodgy businesses). I would contend, the Vancouver Business Bureau is equally disreputable if not worse than most of the really shady characters they purport to investigate.(read, essentially encourage) I would further contend they do a lot more posturing than consumer oversight. A quick read of their equally abysmal ratings indicate they additionally appear to rig their own rating scores despite their only lousy reviews. My mother used to term it "insult to injury". Listen to your mother. What a waste of oxygen.

Cit-e-Cycles in surrey is the worst. Rude staff, happy to slam other retailers because they can't match prices. Also very poorly made machines. I can only think that the positive reviews here on the site are fake. Not sure how these people are in business. They drink and do drugs in the shop. Worst scooter shop in B.C. Over priced china garbage. Misleading and un educated about the products. Buyer beware. Stay away from Cit -E-Cycles.

Langley Computer Center I brought my Sony laptop in to get fixed. It took more than a month to get it back from them. They charged me $300. After aprox 35 days it would no longer turn on. I took it back. They advised that they purchased the replacement mother board from EBAY, and the warranty for the part was 30 days from the date that it shipped. They said that my warranty has expired. Further they said that they don't have any other source, and it's not their fault. It's hard for me to accept that an "expert" computer repair shop doesn't have a reliable, responsible, source for COMPUTER PARTS. This "limited" warranty was never explained to me before I authorized the work. They told me the motherboard was expensive. They neglected to tell me that if it doesn't work I'm out $300. I paid to have my computer fixed by an "expert" computer repair

Had an issue with telus. escalated it to BBB. Telus said they'd pay me what they owe me. BBB closed the claim. Telus never paid me. BBB won't do anything.

"At our core, BBB will continue to provide consumers with current data on the marketplace, and specifically information on Accredited Businesses who are screened, approved and continually monitored on performance."

Visitors to bbb.org will see a visual design that captures the many landscapes of British Columbia, plus it features a simple menu system to search for businesses, get quotes on jobs, and find other relevant consumer information.
