Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We contracted Knight Termite to handle the fumigation of our home. They subcontracted Your Way Fumigation for part of the work. We were told our home would be secure at all times unless a crew was on site. Our home was entered either through an open window or an unlocked door during the night of 11/7/13 and we were robbed. However, it was noted that there was no indication that the window had been entered through because the items around the window were all in place. The thieves stole a safe, jewelry, cameras, a gun collection, cash, a coin collection, and much more. We estimate at this time that we lost close to $10,000 worth of personal items. The fumigation crew arrived Friday morning to take down the tent when they say they noticed an open sliding glass door and open window and that the house had been robbed and ransacked. We were out of town at the time and notified by phone. Our daughter arrived on site sometime later. I contacted the owner of Knight Termite Harris Taub by phone to ask for assistance in handling the situation and he was uncooperative and hostile stating it wasn't his problem. I expressed that as a result of their negligence and the negligence of their subcontractor we had been robbed. Further damage was done when the Sherriff's department fingerprinted items leaving behind black dust that resulted in damaging beyond repair our bedding, carpet in master bedroom and an upholstered dining chair. We feel that Knight Termite is directly responsible for all losses incurred and damages sustained.
Desired Settlement: We expect to be compensated by Knight Termite for all losses and damages.
The customer was aware of the conditions that a tent fumigation is conducted. It states plainly on the termite report she received on 9/20/2013 that Knight Termite & Pest Control does not provide on-site security or assume any responsibility for the care and custody of the property. In the event of vandalism or breaking and entering. ALL VALUABLES SUCH AS JEWELERY,COINS,,COLLECTIBLES,PAINTINGS, AND OR CASH,SHOULD BE REMOVED PRIOR TO FUMIGATION. IT also states on the Occupants Fumigation Notice and Pesticide Disclosure that all customers must sign. Although your homeowners insurance should cover burglary, just as if it occurred at any other time, we suggest that you remove CASH,VALUABLE JEWELRY,WEAPONS, or another valuables during the fumigation. We cannot be responsible for losses occurring while the building is unattended. As our liability insurance does not cover theft or losses, we recommend renters or homeowners insurance be purchased by the homeowner or tenant. No company wants any customer to suffer any loss from our services and we are truly sorry this has happened to Mrs. ********. We are waiting for the police report to determine if there were any standard conditions that were not met by Your Way fumigation company.
Better Business Bureau:
Secondly, I have attached the police report which shows the probability, that access was gained through an unlocked or open sliding glass door and not through a window.
Finally I would like to say that we did not release Knight Termite of liability. Of course this company should be held responsible for losses that occur due to their negligence. Also I would add that I have a copy of my contract and paperwork so Mr. ***** response to my complaint by simply quoting the contract once again seems to me to show a lack of cooperation.
Business Response: THE COMPLAINT FROM **** ******** HAS BEEN RESOLVED TO HER SATISFACTION
