Their product comes in all qualities and price ranges. We got some for my folks when they were having trouble walking on their high pile rug... They did a great job and we didn't have to wait. They came out the day after we called!

QPR? I'm not so sure about that. You pay for the convenience, I'm sure.
This one?

ChefJune, what does QPR stand for? TIA

lol, i hate the new york commercial. they found some dumba$$ "couple" with heavy brooklyn or queens accents, and have them argue over the caw-pit.

and i agree, gb, the jingle is at once catchy and annoying.
