Went in to buy two remotes for my alarm at ALARMS ETC.901 N. Florida Ave..,Lakeland for an Alarm I already had.Aha but $40.00 they said they would update mine to a better Alarm.Put in the CHEAPEST one they had...[Was suppose to have been an UPDATE Didn't know they put the Cheapest they had.]Till they had already Installed it..
I Agreed..
Told me they would have it done by 6pm, 6pm turned into 7pm,When we got there they was rushing around,It was around 8pm when they finally finished.We left and got down the road a bit,,Radio didn't work,,Turned around and went Right back..He fooled with the wires a bit and sent us on our way..Couple days later still having problems with my Radio,,Mind you it worked just fine before I took it in..So I take it back today 7-1-09 and he said bring it by he would look at it.I Gave Him SOME SRCREWS That I Found In The Floorboard of the Truck.Gave them to Daniel,Didn't even tempt to put them back in my Dashboard,He just Pulled out my Radio and said yea it's your Antenna it is No Good or your Factory Radio isn't any good..It will Be Another $80.00 to fix it..I said NO ,I told him my Radio worked just fine when I came in here,I think you should have to fix it..Told me it Would be over an Hour ,He has a part coming from the Tampa Store,and He would Work with me And Only CHARGE me $40.00,He would cut the cost with me..I said NO,That's not right..So while I waited I went around the Cornter to another Installer on Memorial Blvd. and he said something didn't get hooked up right,,So I went back and Told Daniel Weisgarber what they said,,He got mad because I got A Second Opinion..Still waiting for part to come..He ask me to leave and he wasn't doing business with me No more..I refused to leave without my Radio being fixed..He calls the Cops on me..So I ask him are you going to FIX my Radio?He Said NO,,so I let and went around the corner to Memorial Blvd.,,and They were Super Nice,,The Installer stopped what he was doing and waited on me Right away..He said to let him finish up with the Truck he was working on and he would get right on it..15 Mintutes later he was looking at my Truck within 20 MINTUTES he was done...
I had to Pay Them To Fix Alarms Etc.Mess Up.Something that should have to pay for..They took advantage of me..And talked me into a New Alarm I didn't Need and then wanted to Charge me to Fix it by telling something eles was Wrong with it,,Trying to get me to pay them MORE MONEY to Fix it..Then they didn't hook everything back up the right way and then REFUSE to Fix it...

Alarms Etc.
901 N.Florida Ave,Lakeland,Fl.
4980 US Highway 98 N,Lakeland,fl. They would not HELP me either,I called them for Help thier store on 98 N.

Daniel Weisgarber[Shop Manger]
Nick Bugler [Sales/Install Tech.]

So I had to go some where eles to have it Fixed..
On Memorial Blvd. Great Place to Go..
One thing Good came out of it I Know Where To Take My Truck Next Time..

My Statement Reads::Checked out 2000 ford150,alarm installed eleswere,after install Radio would not recieve am/fm signal.

Fixed Issue by Reconnecting wired fm modulator to overhead dvd monitor that was disconected..
