Complaint Detail(s)

Additional Notes

Complaint: Work was not completed to statisfaction, further damage done to trailer while there. Fueling station door does not stay closed, wire mesh panel was not straightened, while at shop awning was torn and shop informed me that they will not be taking responsibility for it. Damage was done on their lot.

Desired Settlement: refund of monies paid to them for services, so that another shop can complete the work properly, as well as payment to have the awning replaced.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
It is unfortunate when there is a disagreement about repairs with any vehicle owner. We try to avoid any misunderstanding before hand by writing a detailed estimate. An estimate is written following the directions of the owner or person bringing the vehicle in for the estimate. We go over each line on the estimate with the person so they may be sure each item they pointed out as damaged is on the estimate. The mistake here was that the trailer owner sent her companion to get an estimate and he did not describe the extent of the damage the owner visualized. It is the owner's responsibility to read the estimate before repairs are started. Evidently the owner failed to look over the estimate. Additional damage was only pointed out when the owner came to pick up the trailer. This additional damage was not charged for. The owner was advised that the missed damage could be added as a supplement to the insurance company. The fuel door worked properly when the owner inspected it while at the shop. We will re-adjust it if necessary. The openness of our parking area and our policy requiring several obsevers when moving a trailer would make it virtually impossible that the awning was damaged here. It should also be noted that the shop manager was threatned with physical violence in the presence of his family and in the presence of a restaurant full of people by the male companion of the owner of the trailer. The owner also slandered the shop in a full restaurant going table to table. The police had to be called by the restaurant manager, the trailer owner and her companion were ordered to leave. In conclusion, we are sorry this happened but threats of violance, loud profanity, slander and stopping payment on the owners check for the insurance deductible is not the way to resolve a misunderstanding. The shop is open to persuing the supplement items with the insurance company and adjusting the fuel door if it is not working to the owners satisfaction and of course, the deductible would have to be paid.

Consumer's Final Response
(The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) I will mail the owner the check for the deductible. I will also pay out of my own pocket for repairs to be completed properly. In my opinion this is fraud. I will be bringing the trailer in for the rest of the repairs to be completed and I will not leave the trailer during the entire time it is on their premises which means I will have to take time off work to do this. I apoligize profusly for the violent threats and will apoligize personally to the owner upon my arrival.

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
