Good evening. You need to take some proactive action against these guys. File a claim against them in small claims court for the amount they were to pay you for the washer and dryer. They have effectively taken them by not allowing you to get them and therefore need to pay you for them. It's amazing what being served with a summons that you are being sued and given a hearing date does to cause people to get a situation resolved! :)

 

 

I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!

 

If you have a follow-up question, please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
