California Cycles/Classy Cycles Or Owner - Collen Roof13416 Front Beach Road Panama City Beach, Florida United States of America
Just finished a week down in PCB. My son and four of his friends thought they would rent scooters from California Cycles one evening. What a mistake. I wish we had looked them up on the web and checked them out before hand. When all was said and done we were out $600.00.
California Cycles claimed we had scratched one of the bikes and that the boys had signed a form stating that they would forfeit all deposits to cover any damage. Now all the boys are under the age of 18. One of the employees Randy got some random 18 year old girl off the street to sign the boys contracts. Also they had no clue what they were signing.
Colleen Swab is one of the foulest mouthed person I have ever spoken to. She is the owner. You get absolutley no where with her. Her attitude is s**t happens. When we called the police basiclly they said it was a civil matter and they could not help us and I think California Cycles is quite aware of that and they know that most people they rent to are from out of town and don't have the time to take them to small claims court.
This place has a good little scam going. Rip off the out of town vacationers year after year and keep on getting away with it. I spoke with some locals in the store next to them and they said they have been doing this forever. Now I have only listed one store on this complaint but they have about 5 or so up and down Front Beach Road and Thomas Blvd.
Please don't rent from them unless you want to go broke real fast.
