This company specialises in sharp practices. They cold called my mother asking did she want her oven cleaned. She told them she already used an oven cleaning company but they told her that they had taken over all the oven cleaning in her area and her previous company had retired and that’s why they were ringing her. Mum booked them because of this. When they arrived they subjected my 75 year old mother to 20 minutes hard sell to sign up for a monthly direct debit of £10 per month or otherwise the clean would cost her £170 - to clean a single oven! She refused and the guy then said he had to ring his boss and report this. His boss then came on the phone and argued with her for another 10 minutes. Fortunately, my brother arrived to visit Mum and showed them the door. I dread to think what would have happened if my brother hadn’t shown up. Why would anyone hand over money to a company on a monthly basis when they might not even be in business six months later!
To top it all my brother checked out the company Mum previously used and discovered they are still in business - it seems Ultra Pro have been deliberately misleading people on this front too!
Avoid at all costs unless you like timeshare type salesmen!
