Yes - they feel it too much, its a fake claim - their are a dozen scratches all over the bike. Its a 25th anniversary paint job. Bike retails for around 6500 to 8000. but its around 8000 to make whole. I have on fight in this battle other than it was a client of mine I feel is getting screwed. But I spent 2 hours at his home before the job and I can say 100% their was not one mark on it before they moved the POD
Value per owner is $9410 - damages (two estimates ) around $8000. No pictures before accident
No the agreement is between me and storage company - I do not have that kind of money to pay and I did nothing to cause this damage - they went to wrong address. I have a copy of emails from them saying they will make right but when price came back at 8000 it went to their corporate office and they are saying its too high. There has been 2 estimates from Honda dealerships
yes and No - I understand If I ask them to pick this unit up - then it would be my mistake. But I did not say anything other than drop off a empty unit and I will notify you when it is ready to be picked up. ( They always drop off empty and pick back up empty when we are done). They went to wrong address and pick ed unit up 100% on there mistake. My GL insurance said I'm at no fault, and this should fall under their GL warehouse insurance since it was a dispatch error. Problem is they carrier GL on the trucks, but I can't find out if they have warehouse GL insurance.
everyone understands they are liable - that's not the question. The question is how to get them to pay without a long and very costly suit. a suit would be a lot more than $8000.
small claims court can handle a $8000 claim? I thought is was a $5000 limit
no - they are a national comany - 1800-pack-rat - I've need spaeking with VP in north carolina.
So I should have a lawyer write a demand letter for damages. If no reply then I should sue them in court for damages - There is no way we lose, once I get a judgement - the judgement must be paid - do they pay for my legal expense too as part of damages?
