(The carport was for my mother, I'm writing for her.)
My mother took a day 1/2 day off of work because Eagle were supposed to arrive mid-morning to install the carport.
My father left work at lunch time to be here when the crew arrived.
10:00, 11:00, 12:00, and 1:00 rolled around, no sign of the crew, no calls, nothing. We wondered what was wrong.
A little after 1:00, we received a call from a random cell phone. A hispanic man who knew very little english said to give him another hour and a half and that they would be there. They claimed that the carport that they were installing in West Jefferson, (15 minutes from our home) was taking longer than expected.
The bull**** begins.
As it so happened, 2:30, and 3:00 came with no sign of this very busy carport installing crew. We then called Eagle carports and alerted them to the situation. We spoke to a very pleasant lady who had no idea that we were waiting to no avail.
She was shocked that they hadn't shown up and didn't really know what was going on.
She said she would do some research, and after a few minutes she called us back. Apparently, there were 3 other jobs in our area that day, and none of the other customers had seen or heard from the crew either. (Even the home in West Jefferson that they were "working on.")
So, like the patient negroes that we are, we waited. We waited and waited, and then called the cell phone of the crew. When we called them, we could hear hammering, and banging, and they told us, "Yes, they left! Give us 30 minutes to get there!" When my mother questioned what was taking them so long, they said, "Oh, wait, we are leaving now, we be there soon."
This was enough to make the Pope say, "what the f...?"
Well, 4:00. 5:00 and 6:00 came, but they didn't. We decided at this point, that this company was very shady and that if they didn't show up, we were no longer interested in their services.
At 6:15, after darkenss falls here in the mountains, the 3 man crew showed up with flashlights, ready to work.
The company had no knowledge that they were going to install the carport in the dark, and said that they shouldn't be doing it at night.
It took them well over 2 1/2 hours to install the carport, after which we were asked to look at it, and approve it, IN THE DARK.
Needless to say, the very next day, the carport, which was never anchored properly, flipped over and is now sitting on an embankment with lots of damage.
Considering how unprofessional the company had been thus far in the installation of the carport, we were sure that they would be understanding, accomodating and take full responsibility.
WE WERE WRONG. We were told to take pictures and email them to the company, we did that. And we waited.
2 days later we are told, "claim it under your homeowners insurance and read your contract, we can't help you."
Claim what? Something that hadn't even been on the property 16 hours before it was damaged? I don't think so.
We will be filing a claim with the NC small claims court to settle this matter.
This company is shady, disreputable, dishonest and incompetent. Its obvious that a terrible job was done. In fact, one of the company reps admitted that they had been having many problems with this particular crew.
Its time for Eagle Carports to bite the bullet, and take responsibility for a job NOT well done.
