Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased a Hurricane Santee 126 Sport Kayak for 1,099.00 on March 19, 2016. I received the kayak in April and the freight company would not allow for me to remove all the wrapping off the kayak saying they would be free from harm. I noticed upon opening the item that the back of the kayak (underneath) was completely busted, most likely from shipping. I have tried to work with ********.com and was told that they would not allow me to return the item for a replacement. I requested to speak with management on three different occasions and was not allowed to do so by the representative (*******). In my paperwork I received from ********.com they have a 1-year hassle free return policy on any new item. To date, they have not adhered to their own policy. Bottom line, I have purchased a 1,099.00 kayak received in very damaged condition and ********.com is refusing to stand behind their customer and make this right.

Desired Settlement: I would like to have the kayak I ordered sent to me as soon as possible, not damanged. If return shipping is required for the damanged kayak I have in my possession, I request that ********.com pays for return freight.

Business Response: We have been working with the customer on this damaged kayak, as our policy (as confirmed over the phone with her and sent in email form), stated that the kayak would need to be inspected prior to being signed off on for us to be able to file a claim in the case of this issue occurring. We worked on the claim with our freight company, while at the same time getting a replacement kayak sent out to the customer. The original damaged kayak was picked up and returned back to us here, while a replacement was sent out to them and arrived May 23rd, after this complaint was filed. At this time the customer should be all set!

Consumer Response:

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********,and feel that this complaint has already been resolved.
