If you live in NC and lose a ring or anything else valuable/sentimental to you then do yourself a favor and call Michael… (2017)
I was with my son all day at a soccer complex in Raleigh for a tournament and with time to kill between games we practiced on an open field. We spanned a lot of ground and at one point I noticed my wedding band was no longer on my finger. I completely panicked. I scoured the field and tried covering all the ground where I hoped I could find the ring. I even downloaded a mobile metal detector app thinking that would help me easily find the ring (it was a joke).
Unfortunately it didn’t help at all and I ended up leaving the field very sad believing the ring was gone for good. Another parent from my son’s team recommended theringfinders.com and that’s when I reached out to Michael Gaskin the next morning. He contacted me immediately and said he could meet me at the field that afternoon. When I got to the field Michael was already there and to my surprise pulled the ring from his pocket as he had already recovered it! I can’t tell you how happy I was. Not only had Michael found my ring but he also explained to me the process and walked me right to where it had been showing me how impossible it would’ve been to find it on my own. He had contacted the field management ahead of time for permission to check the area, showed me the map printouts he used, and explained all of the equipment he used during the search. Admittedly I was not sure what to expect and it ended up being one of the most professional services I had experienced…and he is a damn nice guy on top of it!
So instead of being depressed and looking for a replacement (which would’ve been impossible considering what the ring means to me) I have it back on my finger.
If you live in NC and lose a ring or anything else valuable/sentimental to you then do yourself a favor and call Michael…he will absolutely turn your day around!
Thanks again Michael!!!
