Sorry, Julie, been away for a couple of days... And as far as a specific name for you to call, I'm sorry, but I don't have one. They are there, however, but you do have to search for them. The biggies are out, usually, their techs are under fire to keep their "numbers up," so they do tend to sell unneeded services. Not ethical, in my estimation.
I do understand that being in a sort of "out of the way" place that you have less to choose from, and some of the independents are spin-offs from the biggies, and are thus infused with some or all of their practices.
But you can use those tactics against them, by appealing to their sense of fair play. Telling them, up front, that you DON'T want those unnecessary services, you want what you want and that's it, notifying them that your continued future service depend on that fact.
And, of course, in today's world, much of what you seek can also be done by yourself - quite easily.
What are you having a problem with, perhaps I can help you in that regard?
