    Customer Testimonial

              It's rather infrequent in this modern age, when I take the time to acknowledge extraordinary service, primarily because it's simply hard to find, (especially in the world of pests) but I felt compelled to take a few keyboard moments. You were here yesterday and thoroughly evaluated our raccoon and bat visitors effect on our attic. Your honesty and demeanor were self-evident. There was a special caring and concern in your voice. Your assessment was of critical damage and major work to be done which of course shocked us. but your professionalism and experience walked us meticulously through the insurance coverage aspect. You were patient as we called our insurance agent. You gave us all the materials, pictures and diagrams we'd need to submit. We submitted a few minutes later.

    It's Bat Season!!!!!!

    Sometimes you're just at the right place, at the right time.

    While doing an inspection at a home in Wall,  I was approached by a frantic neighbor. She saw the distinctively decorated Cowleys truck outside. " Oh my, thank goodness, I can't believe you're here right now," she said. She was very upset, and physically shaking. On the verge of tears, she said, " Please, sir, please. You have to help me. There is a giant bat on my back screen door, I've called 3 people to come and remove it. They all want several hundred dollars just to come out and remove the thing. I'm on a limited income and I don't know what to do. I just can't afford it." 

    Without hesitation, I put on my protectives gloves, went with her to her back door, removed the bat, and gingerly placed him in the nearest tree. I can't vouch for the emotions of bats, but he seemed as happy to be out of the house as the poor lady was to have him taken out. It was a win-win situation for all.

    She asked if she could pay me $50 because that's all she could afford. I didn't want to take a dime from her, and told her that I was confident that my supervisor would not want me taking any payment. I told her that after that traumatic encounter, she deserved to use that money to  go out for a nice, quiet dinner on Cowleys and calm her nerves.

    Cowleys is a business, but I've been working here long enough to know that we're also about doing the right thing. Her gratitude was more than enough compensation for the few minutes that it took to remove the bat. She told me that I was her hero. Before that encounter, I never thought of my Cowleys uniform as a superhero outfit, but right then and there, I felt pretty good about myself and was proud to be a Cowleys technician.
