Default Extreme Powder coating SUCKS

Hey all,
Just wanted to give you a heads up on a ****ty company out of Mesa called Extreme Powdercoating. They have been running me around for almost two months now and still haven't finished the job.

I called this place hearing they did good work, well here's what happend:

First when I called I asked if they could powdercoat my wheels, but I think that the stock evo rims are already powdercoated from the factory, they said it wouldn't be a problem and the total would be around $220 for them to strip them and powdercoat them and they could do it all there but they were running a little behind and it wouldn't be done for about a week. I then brought the wheels into the shop where they told me that it would take a little more work and it would probably be around $240 for the wheels which I agreed to.

I called after the first week and asked what the status was and they apoligized saying they had started to strip them but haven't powdercoated them because they were swamped. I said it wouldn't be a problem and for them just to call me when they were finished.

A week and a half later I was called saying they couldn't strip them there and that I needed to come pick them up and drive them down the road to have them be chemically stripped and that I would have to pay an additional 35 per wheel to have them stripped. I was a little upset that I had to go pick up the rims from them and take them down the road because they committed to doing something that obviously they couldn't. Plus the fact that they are a good 20min freeway drive from my house.

I picked up the rims and dropped them up to Chem-strip, while I was there he told me how they should have dropped them off and how they would be done in 4 days. He didn't take credit cards and I didn't have 120 in cash, he then informed me that they would normally drop them off and pick them up, just charging me what his costs were. I agreed to that and waited the four days.

The next week I got a call from Chem-strip saying that he called Extreme powdercoating telling them they could pick up the rims and they acted like they weren't going to do it so he told me I might want to call them.

I then called Extreme Powdercoating and they said it wouldn't be a problem and they would pay and pick them up just charging me when I picked up the final product.

Its now been almost two months and I called Extreme Powdercoating... A girl answered and was an absolute bitch to me on the phone saying how I had made a verbal contract wiht the guy at Chem-Strip and how they wouldn't pick up the rims and even though I had spoken to the other guy about them picking them up and him agreeing she wouldn't let them do it. Then I asked, "ok were you going to call me and let me know at least" she responds "I figured you would call sooner or later"

WHAT A ****TY COMPANY!!!!!

I hate companies that dont have customer service skills. How do they expect to do business, sooner or later they'll shut down the doors. Tell them you are going to here from my Attorney, blah blah blah and they do something really fast.

I used AZ Powdercoat as well to do the rims on my Armada. They were friendly and fast and I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

Love AZ Powdercoat. And they're always running standard colors (blacks, greys, etc.) so there's no minimum on those. Great service, cheap prices compared to some other vendors.

Hit up Krazyivan (Evan). His uncle owns one of the best powdercoating shops in town. Send him a PM.
