Just a warning about double glazing before bedtime

A bit random I know, but don't use safe style uk if they come knocking. They have been harassing my mother up to 3 times a day.

Serious bully boys and not cheap. Trying to cancel the order for her as it's getting ridiculous but no way they said they'd take legal action if she tried to cancel.

She told them she couldn't have them fitted until the end of March due to an up and coming operation, it even states it on the order, but they haven't stopped phoning her almost daily asking when her op is going to be and couldn't I go round whilst they install them:shock: 

Just had her on the phone upset as they are getting abusive now, I am not a happy bunny:upset:

yes

it has she didn't see the 7 day notice, she's 77. But they are really pushing it now.

Read some reviews earlier and lots of people have had the same problem.

 

I did notice that the cancellation ticket wasn't dated so tried to get it made void, but they haven't replied yet.

2k for a garage side door and garage window:shock:

Silly lady, she didn't say anything to me until the calls started getting too much:upset:

power of attorney...

should be compulsory when parents reach 65....they are easily coerced into signing their money away....but is the problem that they want to fit early or has she changed her mind about having it fitted.They might do a good job.

oh dear....

you are probably buggered then legally....they will argue they have encountered costs and have already made up the items (though most likely haven't) blah blah.  Unfortunatley you will have to give as good as you get, go down the 'taking advantage of an elderly, vulnerable person' (even if she isn't), maybe give Citizens Advice or say you have spoken to Age Concern who are compling a dossier of complaints against them???....scare tactics can sometimes work against these firms......at the end of it your mum will probably lose her deposit if you do get them to agree to cancel.  :mellow:

There is no installation

date except after March, so I think it's a losing battle.

But I wish she'd not go off and do things without speaking to me first:upset:

They just turned up on her doorstep and she let them in, ffs how stupid was that?? Only when the proverbial has hit the fan does she say anything.

She hadn't changed her mind, it was just the calls were getting so bad I told her to tell them to stick their windows where the sun don't shine.

But alas she has to through with the installation.

Bloody heathens, they better do it ok

I heard a similar story about everest. They are all the same when it comes to bully boy tactics. Sometimes staying in a persons house for up to 6 hours and offering to drive them to cash machines!! Go Albert :mad:
