Description

Aleda and Bill Posladek are the founders of A.B. May. They purchased May Furnace Company in 1959. They renamed it A.B. May A for Aleda and B for Bill and set out to offer Kansas City comfort and top quality service with a few employees and four trucks. Over the years we have expanded to offer Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Electrical, and Appliance repair services. In the mid-1970’s we pioneered one of the first homeowner warranties in the industry. Today, we give thousands of Kansas City homeowners a plan for home repairs through our Home Warranties for home buyers and our Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Value service plans. In the nearly 60 years since our business began, we have grown to employ more than 275 people and taken care of thousands of home repair needs for our friends and neighbors that call Kansas City home....

NEVER USE AB MAY FOR ANY SERVICES!!! I contacted AB MAY to help with root removal from my sewer line. They informed me that I needed to jet out my sewer line and it would cost me $2,000 but since I had a home warranty it would cost $1,500. I assumed AB MAY was a good company so I did not price check with other companies/plumbers. AB MAY then told me that they recommended I replace my entire sewer ...

The tech came to the door. He said he performed the inspection and left. I was supposed to get a video showing me the state of my sewer line but never got it. It was a terrible experience.

It took a week to get scheduled, then a week to receive the parts, then another week to return & install the parts. I was without my microwave for a month because they couldn’t get it fixed the first two visits, my dryer was down for two weeks. I have a houseful of kids so that created a huge stress for me. The tech was polite enough but the dispatchers were rude & uncaring. Will be cancelling my ...

Called to get a quote to have our 20 year-old HVAC system replaced due to a leak in the refrigerant system. I was told there would be a $89 service charge for them to send out a technician before they would have a salesman come and provide a proposal to replace the system. I told them to forget it - apparently they are more interested in getting paid for their service calls than providing proposal...

I have a Value Plan (paid each month), but the company said they would not or could not come service my pool pump any day or time because I didn't have coverage. I asked what that meant and apparently, if I don't pay extra every month, I can't have the company I already pay come to my house for this service; even if I'm willing to pay a service fee! Wow, I've called another company for this servic...

It was terrible. Please don't call AB May unless you have a lot of extra money you want to throw away. I was told, once the technician arrive, that it was going to be $426 to install a kitchen faucet - and that was with me supplying the faucet. My advice would be to call anyone but AB May if you need work done to your house or rental property.
