Complaint: On Wednesday, June 3, my son and I contacted Elmer Glass about the replacement of a back passenger-side window for a ****** ******. We were told to leave the truck at the business on Friday morning, June 5, and that it would be ready that afternoon, We were quoted a price of $185.00. On Friday afternoon, I called and talked with Michelle, again receiving a billed price of $185.00. I paid her with my debit card. Appx. 1 hr. after speaking with Michelle, she called my son's phone and told him that they had ordered the wrong window and that they would receive the glass on Monday, June 8, and that the window would cost considerably more. Late Monday afternoon, I, once again, called to pay for the window, but was told that once again the wrong glass had arrived. Michelle told me that the right glass had been ordered and that she hoped it would arrive on Thursday, June 11. Late Thursday afternoon, I called again and was told by Jan that the glass was in Grand Junction and that they 'hoped' they would have the truck finished sometime on Friday. Her excuse was that this happens when they have to order a "special" type of glass--seriously! This was when I finally lost my patience. There must be a million ****** ****** trucks on the road, and I was previously told that this was the error of Elmer Glass. After hanging up, I Googled the replacement window and was taken to Ebay where I found two such windows for under $80.00 that could be overnighted. On Friday afternoon, June 12th, my son was finally able to pick up the truck. He wrote a check for $350.00. I have used Elmer Glass multiple times over the years, and have always been very satisfied with the product and the service. I called another glass provider during this debacle, but because of my previous experiences, I chose to stay with Elmer Glass believing that they would make things right. I was sadly disappointed.
Desired Settlement: I understand that the company needs to recover the cost of the product. However, I was surprised that after receiving such poor customer service, being quoted the wrong price, and being inconvenienced for an extended period of time, that no compensation was offered.
