Additional Notes

Complaint: I needed a top for my 1972 Blazer.In mid October 2013, I found one listed by Ike and Sons at *************. They described the part as in good shape, needing no repairs. The web site states that descriptions are the responsibility of the listing company.I sent an email asking for condition and price. Ike and Sons did not respond, so I later called them. I was told over the phone that other than superficial cracks the part was good. At the time I was injured and unable to walk or drive until December 2013 and told them this and asked if they would hold the part. They told me I must pay in full ($400) to hold it.I was walking and able to drive my Blazer the 400 mile round trip to Craig in mid December 2013. I made the trip on the 18th as the weather was good and it was not snowing.I had called ahead regarding the top so they would know I was coming. On arrival we went out in to the yard to get the top so I could put it on my Blazer for the drive back to Boulder. To my total surprise the top was not in serviceable condition. The rear hatch had broken hinge attachments, no working latches, and missing lock mechanism. The area around the drivers door was broken.I told them that I would not take the top as it was not as advertised.They asked why i bought it without looking at it and claimed they told me of its bad condition. They then said they took photos and sent them to me. They could not find any evidence of that in their computer, and i never received any photos. I again explained that I was unable to walk or drive until December 2013 and had relied on their description as I would have never considered the top had its condition been fully disclosed.They now stated that either I or their employee was lying and they would fire the employee if he lied (implying that I was a liar).They finally agreed to a refund, but charged me $140 restocking fee. I don't believe that is right since the part was misrepresented to me. I lost a day, 25 gallons of gas and drove 400 miles to be treated badly.

Desired Settlement: I would like the $140 plus tax back and I guess i will eat the 25 gallons of gas and the wasted day.

Business Response: As you may know, My Company has a 30 day limit return policy. The questioning customer was well over 2 months of storage by the time he decided to come and get it. I did not even have to return it to the customer, due to this period, my time is money as well, and keeping a part on hold cost's my business money. However I went ahead and returned it with a 45% restocking fee due to the time frame in which we had this waiting for the customer. My part's hand would have NEVER told the customer that the roof was damage free. He and I both knew it needed repair from the moment it was bought and inventoried into my yard. I have no control over what ************ say's about my parts. As far as the photo's being sent it appears we were given a different e-mail address, and it make's sense we had no reply. I still cannot believe anybody for the matter would purchase something as such without an onsite viewing. Picture's sent or not. I'm curious as to why the customer was not sure about purchasing this part due to not receiving pictures, but still made the purchase anyway. We would have been more than happy to take a "Hold-Deposit" until he was able to come and see it before we had went out (Gas money), Removed the seats, and hardware(Time & Payroll), in order for the customer to pickup the top. Again costing me money and time. A hold deposit would have been only 25% of the total cost, the customer was very interested and went ahead and paid in full, without our demand. 

Thank you

Consumer Response: Complaint: *******

I am rejecting this response because: 1) ************ states that all item descriptions are the responsibility of the listing business.
2) I only gave them one email address and it is the correct one.
3) I was told there was no significant damage to the part.
4) I asked them about holding the part and was told I had to pay the full price.
5) I was unable to drive or walk until December, and told them that before I paid for the item.
6) I drove 400+ miles and wasted $75 worth of gas to find the item was unsuitable.
7) I would never have considered the item in the first place if I was given an honest description of its condition.
8) I will not go in to ad hominum attacks, but would encourage anyone to be careful when dealing with this business.
