Complaint Review: Munson Marine
Went to the Kane County Boat Show and were looking at boats. A saleman for Munson Marine showed us a Regal 1900 we were interested in but unsure. He told us that if we gave him a deposit he would hold the pricing for us on the boat because it was a special price for the boat show. He said that we could cancel before delivery, and that the deal would be pending a water test.
Well, 4 weeks later we run into financial hardships and are unable to go thru with the boat purchase. I call Munson Marine to cancel my order, and spoke with the sales manager named Sam. Sam tells me I cannot cancel my order, and that my $1000 deposit will not be returned and they are keeping it. She also told me that they "Held the boat for 4 weeks for me" Well, after checking their inventory on their webpage, they have 2 more of the same boat in stock - so they did NOT lose any business because of this. Also, I told her my salesman said I could cancel and she said "did he write that on your invoice, nope - sorry, I am not giving you your money back"
She was VERY callus and cold in her tone and the way she spoke to me. I will be filing a grievance with my credit card company, thank god I did not give them cash or a personal check.
I just find it funny that a company expects to keep $1000 for NO SERVICES RENDERED. Wow, I wonder what kind of service I could have expected if I actually went thru with my purchase.
