have just had cargo barrier installed by KENTONE- melb/vic and guy installing was great.
however time to pay up and call made to base to clarify price(installer still great)-well all i can say is i broke my own rule of not getting pricing in writing and name of person quoting. all i will say is i will never ever deal with them again and strongly advise to get quotes in writing.
that is all i will say as there is always two sides to a story and they are not present to defend themselves(shame about that as it would be interesting reading)
should have gone with my second quote from reputable place which was same price as originally quoted by KENTONE-not price ended up paying

I have bought from Kentone B4 and found them to be great.

If it was me and the price was different to what was quoted I would have then said that because the price is not what I was quoted then take the barrier out and I will go to the other store and have it fitted there. They most probably would have accepted the original price.

What you can do now is give the original person a call and let them know that if the difference is not paid then you will take them to the small claims court. This is a free service to you and from my experience their it has always been in my favour. They are fair and reasonable.

Hey fozzy,

You never know your luck. If you send them a well written letter explaining the situation they may come to the party anyway. That would save any other hassles. Hope it all works out.

Stick it up them. Give them a ring & ask for the manager , then tell him the story & take it from there. If i'm quoted a price thats all I pay.

As above SCTrib. etc, but 1st the manager.

Happened to me with tyres, got the manager and he pulled out a greasy little notebook from under the counter had a look at the date I said and Voila, thanks for the discount, if he hadn't of come around he was going to take the tyres off.
