I WANT REIMBURSED!!!
February 17, 2014 at 7:49pm
I didn't realize that when I went on internet & typed in, Proride Trailers, the first post is LSM comments to warn others, so I am going to post my comment here as well. My brother & I went to Jason's shop. He seemed so nice & ready to build me the trailer I desired. He took my brother & I to view one of the cargo trailers in fenced area. Just what I wanted & great price & I put $500 refundable (on tape) if I was not happy & got when I needed it by Dec. 6, 2013. I had to have it filled & set up on a space on Fri. Dec.13,2013, before that night. Then the gates were to open for customers on Sat. Dec. 14, 2013 at 7am. Also included in my agreement was a 'bolted on' hitch to my truck. Jason measured it & said it would be ready to install with trailer pickup & 30 min. to install hitch. I continued calling to make sure & when 6th came, he started his excuses. I told him since he kept moving dates, I better come get hitch on ahead of time & that 30 min. turned into 4 & 1/2 hrs., and I had to cancel work. After continually asking what was taking so long, he went to check & comes back to say, 'They almost got it welded on'. WHAT? WELDED? NO!!! 'You said 'bolted on hitch', not welded, bc I don't want it welded on'. I was furious! They welded on a hitch over my spare tire, messed up my bumper & looks like they used a black spray can & sprayed under truch, including spare tire. Well, while I was there for 4 & 1/2 hrs, a deputy came by to see how much longer for his trailer & tired of excuses & another victim came in & we exchanged #'s. She filled me in on SO much, including her months of waiting & lies he told & LSM, which is how I connected on here. I continually tried to get my deposit back & he wouldn't have it & kept saying it's almost done. Well, on Saturday Morning at 2:30 (yes 2:30am), 4 hrs before the sale & 2hrs of heavy rain after he delivered my trailer which was BLACK, not gray & the paint was WET! I opened the door in daylight at 7am to find the roof had leaked & puddle of water in floor. I had 2 men here to do vinyl on my home who helped me open the door because Jason just attatched a wire with no purpose (no hydraulics) so ramp door is too heavy for me to lift. The side door is 24' instead of 32'. The latches on doors don't line up & back door latch isn't even connected. The roof is flat, not round as one he showed my brother & I & he bragged he does them that way so no rain on top sits there. I have dips on top of FLAT roof! The bars inside that are supposed to be mounted to ceiling aren't 1/2 welded. A gap above side door to see out & no gaskets around either doors. The ramp door plywood floor is 1/4' & cracked & split as soon as we walked in it. The tail lights plug that's supposed to plug to mine is same as mine (2 females). NO LIGHTS! Many screws sticking out through walls & many missing that were never put on. The wood on inside looks so crooked, I think they must've been drunk. The ceiling height is 6' not 7' (1'above my head). The tires have 1' between finders, so if I did load anything in it, the weight of trailer would sit on tires & shred them or flip the trailer, WHO KNOWS??? I made Jason pull up trailer to my neighbor home when he got here at 2:30am, because I wanted a witness to everything after I read all the many posts on LSM & BBB & spoke to Sheriff Dept. & DMV in Metairie about this company & Jason Jarreau. I stopped payment after I looked at trailer in daylight 4 hrs after he dropped it here, under advice of my attorney. She contacted him & he said nothing was wrong with it but he was not going to refund my deposit & take it back. So now we are going to court. So now, I guess all of you reading this will no longer wonder WHY I have spent SO much time trying to put an end to any more VICTIMS OF PRORIDE TRAILERS. Oh, I also found out someone in DS was selling his trailers & advised him of our issues & his company also getting bad publicity & he said he was gonna take PRT emblem OFF of the trailers he is now trying to sell & not order any more, but I will be checking on that later. RIGHT NOW I WANT MY DEPOSIT BACK, DAMAGES TO MY TRUCK, COST TO REMOVE THAT WELDED ON HITCH, TIME LOST FROM WORK & WHATEVER ELSE I CAN GET FOR MY SUFFERING OF JASON JARREAU!!! He gets arrested is he don't pay judgements against him, so all of you with judgements take them to Sheriff's Dept in Port Allen. Also, DMV Commisioner is having a hearing on March 10, 2014 on Jason Jarreau! This is NOT fair to those of us who work hard for a living & be VICTIMIZED like this!!!
