Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.First and foremost, what contract/documentation are they relying on to claim that you owe $14,000?
Second, how long has the incorrect billing been going on? How many years?Also, can you clarify your specific legal question? Or are you just looking for a general response to the situation?Thank you.
There is no contact between us and the company. My husband was transferred overseas and his company paid for our items in storage. His former company uses Keller Swiss Group AG to manage their expats and our goods are in storage at company called Bollinger My husband is no longer employed with this company, I contacted our relocation contact at Keller Swiss and asked if Keller Swiss could bill us directly for our goods as we would like to keep in storage. The incorrect billing has been for 2009, 2010 and 2011. I am looking to see if there is an option for me to resolve this issue as I want to move my goods out but I cannot until I pay the 14,000 balance due. I feel that I should not be responsible for the entire balance as this has was their oversight and I was not notified of the situation until 2012 for 3 years of incorrect billing
One last question, since the goods are held in CT I can site CT law? The billing company is in Switzerland. I am wondering should I also be sending my response to the Storage Company as they have my goods vs the billing company as I do not know if the billing company(Swiss Keller) has been paying the correct amount to storage company.
Also, can I work through the Better Business Bureau as the storage company is in CT?
I think this is my last question. I think that we need to contact an attorney to move forward and deal with the moving company directly. Do we need to contact an attorney that practices in CT or can we use an attorney from any state.
