Mercedes vans, endless ads, over priced shitty work. Why do people still call them?!? Google search people! Wayyyyy better companies in this area who will do better work at half the cost.


Michael & Son - overpriced
Michael & Son - crap work
Michael & Son - ripoff
Michael & Son - prey on emergency calls
Michael & Son - avoid
Michael & Son - reviews
Michael & Son - annoying ads
Michael & Son - yelp
Michael & Son - google reviews

They do all they can to get rid of bad reviews, I guess that's how they do so well. Most people don't bother to leave a review anyways.

From yelp

"Almost immediately after I posted my review for Michael & Son, I received 2 phone calls from them about my review. I called back and spoke with Vance. They offered to refund me the $250 and give me $100 toward future services."

"Since posting my initial Yelp! review in June, I have had to deal with a near constant stream of phone calls from the owner of Michael & Son, Vance Shepherd in customer relations, and many many more.

Initially, I appreciated that they wanted to rectify their dangerous and not-within-code installation. The problem is that they couldn't have cared less about my situation while it was relevant. They only cared once it was made public. "

This is a typical company that has taken advantage of their elderly clients, charging outrageous fees AND not performing all the work they are gouging them for.
There is a reason they have to advertise everywhere, no repeat business!!

And why are their ads always talking about the former Secretary General of the UN? "If U Thant, we can, Michael & Sons"

LOL 2/3 of the 5 star reviews only have 1 review in their history. The only 1 legit 5 star review changed it to 5 stars only after being contacted.

shady, shady...

Notice all other reviewers have 10 - 100+ past reviews. The only reason someone would have 1 - 2 reviews total is if they got so pissed at a service that they signed up on yelp only to leave a bad review.

No one gets excited after paying hundreds of dollars for home repairs that they decide to sign up and leave a review.

FAKE!

Proof that marketing will overcome poor service and reviews...complete shit bag....Hassam,,,I mean Michael is in the busines of going after elderly folks and emergency calls.
This model is run like the mafia, they give you a truck and some service tickets and go out and make some money. A tech makes a mistake, they never own up to it, and charge you everytime they walk through the door even if it to fix what they fucked up

Is it true that the Dulles Sportsplex was renamed Michael and Son Sportsplex? If so, this company truly has slapped their name on everything in this area.

The "Pultie House" and "Richmond American" displays were built especially to show off the soon to be developed Penderbrook in the mid 80s.

First, they're run by Palestinians. So fuck them.

Second, they charged me $160 to NOT fix and electrical outlet (problem was wiring in the wall and the fuckers just gave up but still ripped me off).

In short, fuck Michael & Son.

Afriend called me and asked if $1,000 was a good rate to install two in-floor electrical outlets. Their floor is hardwood and the basement is unfinished. Basically all an electrican would need to do is run wire in the basement, tie it in, and cut out a small section of floor to mount the outlet. I told her the price was insane and asked who it was from. Yup, Michael & Son. I gave her the number of a local guy who did some work at my place. He went over, quoted them $275 per outlet right there and got them done in two hours.

Fucking Michael & Son. LOL.
