Did not follow instructions, broke item, refused to pay – I gave specific instructions on how to ship a delicate piece of stereo equipment. The guy responded by telling me he was "quite capable" of packaging the equipment. I said "sorry", but please mind the instructions.
They did not follow the instructions. My stereo equipment was trashed. They refused to pay for it, telling me I needed to deal with Fedex because that was who they used to send it. All I had to do was take a day off work and travel across town to the Fedex inspection site. Or turn the equipment over to Fedex for who knows how long. (Fedex did not do anything wrong.)
Fast forward -- I had to file a legal action against them in small claims court in SoCal where I live. They claimed that I had to file in either Berkeley or San Diego, hundreds of miles from where I live. The "CEO" of the Packaging Store appeared to fight my claim.
I am waiting to receive the Court's ruling, but the judge did not seem overly impressed by their absurd roadblocks they put up to avoid paying me a few hundreds dollars for their mistake. She said their objections to my filing action in SoCal were "not well taken."
Sound like fun?
