We have mixed emotions about Lazy Days.
When we bought last year, it seemed they just could not do enough for us.? The only hitch in the buying process was our salesman was horrible about details and follow-up.
Then when we tried to have certain items taken care of by the sales manager who had made certain promises, all of a sudden things changed.? Two faxes and four phone calls since June 8, 2005 have not been returned.? This is inexcusable.?
This is ALSO after we had introduced the manager and a different salesman to some friends who were looking for a new coach.? They got to bid on the coach (but were not the successful bidder).
Let's see if this sums it up:? If a sales manager reneges on his representations, and ignores his customer's faxes and calls, and ignores customers who send referrals to them, hum... guess what signals get sent to the sales staff?
That being the case, protect yourself by getting everything in writing, as has been pointed out above.? In our case, we sent a confirmation letter of the representations and promises made, and thought that would be sufficient, especially since subsequent conversations confirmed those representations and promises.? It was not until we sought compliance that we got disappointed, to the tune of several thousand dollars.? Next week we may see if Mr Wallace, the president, wants his company represented this way.
I'm truly sorry circumstances beyond my control create the cause for this post, but it isn't like Lazy Days has not brought it on itself.
