Last Winter, the day before we were going to leave for New Orleans, my baseboard heating in living room sprung a leak. When the oil company came to repair it, I told the 2 Techs to be very careful around my speakers, not to touch them or move them. (they were not in the way). After the techs left, I noticed my right speaker had been dragged away from its resting place and the inserts for the threaded spikes were broken and 2 of the spikes had sheared off.
I complained to the oil company and the techs denied it. I had to buy a new plinth and spikes for the speakers from GE at my expense. Not only that but the flawless piano black lacquered speaker had multiple scratches, fingerprints and smelled like oil. The owner of the oil company would no do anything. He said I should have moved them before the techs got there.
I changed oil company’s after that and when I received the bill for the heating repair, I sent it back with the invoice for the new parts for my speaker which was more than the cost of the heating repair. I Never paid them.
