We are in the Chicagoland area, and made the mistake of entering into a contract agreement with a roving salesperson for security services. When the salesperson first came to my door, I told him we were sticking with our current security service and that we would be moving soon anyway. He proceeded to present facts to me regarding the poor customer service and response time of our current service, which raised serious safety concerns regarding the well-being of my family. He also made it very clear that moving was not an issue. Not only could we transfer our service to our new home, we would be supplied with new equipment at our new home, free of charge. It was their "One free move" policy. No stipulations, no questions. Just call, and they would take care of the rest. Right.
We are now in the process of moving. When I called to schedule a new install date, I was told they would need to come out and take out the old equipment to put in our new house. This is not what I had been promised. Had we not been assured numerous times during the set up process that new equipment would be installed at our new place, we would not have included the security system when we sold our old home.
Unfortunately, Apex and/or Monitronics will not honor the word of the salesperson who entered the home of my family and sold us a system using false information. I was told by a representative and then a floor supervisor that the door-to-door salespeople wearing Apex uniform shirts are not their employees. They are independent contractors and cannot be tracked down. However, they were able to tell me that the salesperson who came to my door was a summer intern and that he may have provided with me false information, but this does not matter to them because they cover themselves by including their policies in tiny fine print on the backside of their contracts. Still, unfortunately, what the salesperson said means absolutely nothing. Despite verifying with the salesperson the facts involving the so-called free move at least twice the night we signed up for service, the customer service representative informed me that they are not responsible for what their contractor said and he surely isn't responsible for me not reading the itsy bitsy fine print on the back of the contract.
When I asked to speak to the floor supervisor's supervisor, he put me on hold, explained the situation to his supervisor, and then returned to tell me that his supervisor saw no need to speak with me and that his supervisor would back everything he had already told me. This is unprofessional and demonstrates the poor customer service this company provides.
BUYER BEWARE! If you enjoy banging your head on the wall, go ahead and do business with Apex and/or Monitronics!
