Business Response: Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/07/30) */ In response to complaint #XXXXXXXX, Consumer ***** **** ****** On 8/12/12 we installed our Freedom Fence Pet Containment System. The installation went fine. On 4/4/13, 8 months later, she called and said that she was having a problem with the fence. We drove 1 hour to her house and DIDN'T CHARGE her for the service call. The problem turned out to be a dead battery, which is her responsibility. She purchased 2 batteries for $40.00. We also loaned her a receiver because she claimed that her receiver wasn't working properly. This was also done at NO CHARGE. On 4/18/13 she needed 1 battery that was sent directly from the factory, which she never paid for. On 6/21/13 she purchased 2 batteries for $40.00. Mrs. ****** is mad because she claims that she had to purchase too many batteries from us. That is why she wants her money back. On 7/17/13 she had a receiver problem which we addressed immediately. We loaned her a receiver to use while her receiver was being repaired. That was 11 months after the installation. We did not hear from her from 8/2/12 until 4/4/13. Her repair was under warranty. THIS ALSO COST HER NOTHING. The disorganization that she claims is due to a delivery error. We inadvertently sent her batteries to a customer with a similar name and spelling, who also lives in the town of Woodbridge. We rectified this matter immediately. Her total out of pocket cost in the year since her installation was $80.00. From the date of installation until her first contact with us was 8 months. How can she say that the system has barely worked from the time we installed our system since she never contacted us regarding any issues. SHE HAS NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH HER DOG ESCAPING. *** *******, Owner, Freedom Fence
