Destination Boat Clubs - Destination Boat Club NAPLES fl don't join this club

Last year I joined destination boat club off of north road in NAPLES fl. I was shown numerous boats that I could take out that were in a brochure I recieved from the sales person. The pictures showed clean well equipped late model boats. It was raining the day I joined and the sales guy told me all the boats were put away. I paid my membership fee and joined. The boat I took "my test " in was a boat pictured in the brochure however it was faded and dirty. The propeller was torn up and the boat not up to my standards to say the least. The guy that took me out for this ride assured me that that was the worst boat in the fleet and the others were better he promised. My job is unpredictable and I have few opportunities to go boating and was told by the management that that especially now ( the off season) there would never be any problem reserving a boat. Three attempts to reserve boats were answered by "not available" , two other times I reserved boats and was called the morning of my reservation to be told the boats were broke down. The third time a reserved boat was broke down I freaked out and called the management. They told me they had a boat for me. It was a piece of ***. Ten years old, moldy safety equipment. The key spun around in the dash making it difficult for the starter to engage. The engine stalled. I went to throw the anchor out and there was only 10 feet of tethered line making it useless. After playing with the key it started. I was not happy as small children were with us and the boat should be safe right ? Last thing, while the engine ran, the gimbal bearing ......obviously bad made so much noise that I could tell it was in need of replacement long before I used this boat. To rap it up here, I got to use one piece of *** boat in six months at a cost of three grand. Could never get the owner "Dirk" to call me back but he finally did when I cancelled my credit card. He told me everything was bad timing and blah blah blah. Never offered me anything to remedy the situation. They oversold the membership for the amount of boats they have and don't take care of the boats they do have. I'm an experienced boater and know what's reasonable and what's not. I should have taken this guy to court, but why spend more money. He actually told me that I was in the wrong canceling a half year early and to read the contract. Don't go to this place....ripoffs

The North Carolina location is amazing. Mitch and Luke are always excellent and go out of their way to help me. I never have a problem getting a boat.

Used Appliance Wholesalers - USEDAPPLIANCEWHOLESALERS.COM IS A RIPPOFF

LOCATED IN FARMINGDALE NY, THE OWNER, JOE WINTER SELLS USED " AS IS " KITCHEN AND LAUNDRY APPLIANCES BY THE TRUCK LOAD. TALKED ON THE PHONE SEVERAL TIMES AND HE EMAILED ME PICS PERTAINING TO THE QUALITY OF THE MERCHANDISE I WOULD BE GETTING. I BUY APPLIANCES FOR MY STORE IN NAPLES, FL AND AFTER RECONDITIONING WE RESELL IN OUR MARKET AREA. SINCE THIS WAS KIND OF RISKY, I ACTUALLY VISITED THE STORE AND WAS TAKEN THROUGH HIS WAREHOUSE AND SHOWN EXAMPLES OF WHAT ID BE GETTING. THE PRICE WAS MORE THAN IM USED TO PAYING AND THE FREIGHT MADE THE MARGIN THAT MUCH SLIMMER HOWEVER BASED UPON HIS PROMISES, I WENT AHEAD AND PAID FOR THE LOAD. IT ARRIVED A WEEK LATER. PARTS ROBBED FROM MANY PIECES, DAMAGED UNITS FROM IMPROPER LOADING, MANY OLD APPLIANCES THAT WERE NOT PART OF OUR AGREEMENT, PIECES THAT I PAID FOR NOT ON THE TRUCK, SUBSTITUTED WITH INFERIOR OLD *** AND THE LIST GOES ON. AFTER SENDING PICS AND COMPLAINING JOE TOLD ME HE WOULD MAKE IT UP ON THE NEXT LOAD. LIKE IM GONNA SPEND THOUSANDS MORE AND GET RIPPED OFF TWICE. I ASKED FOR A MEASLY $1000 BUCKS REFUND WHICH IS ABOUT A THIRD OF WHAT I SHOULD GET JUST TO SEE IF THIS GUY WAS TRUSTWORTHY AND HE DECLINED, SAYING " WE NEVER GIVE REFUNDS". THERE IS ALWAYS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TRUST INVOLVED WITH ANY BUSINESS DEAL. WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE FIRST SALE DICTATES WEATHER YOUR CUSTOMER WILL DO BUSINESS WITH YOU AGAIN. THIS GUY ACTUALLY AGREED THAT I WAS NOT TREATED FAIRLY. GOT TIRED OF BUYING SMALLER AMOUNTS AND NOT BEING ABLE TO BUY ENOUGH LOCALLY BUT WILL RETURN TO THAT WAY OF DOING BUSINESS CONSIDERING THERE ARE CROOKS LIKE THIS GUY PASSING THEMSELVES OFF AS HONEST BUSINESS PEOPLE.

This guys thanking me for new business, but he's flagging all my local ads from Craigslist. That's funny...he should be sending me a Christmas card but acting like a child instead.

I don't have enough time in my schedule to make up stories about things that didn't happen. To any business person.....no matter how big or small their business is, 10 grand is a lot of money. When I buy smaller amounts for less money and the stuff is ***, I just don't buy off that person again. I gave him an opportunity to fix this either by sending what I didn't get ( that I paid for) or giving me a lousy thousand bucks, both declined by him.

His idea was for me to spend more money on yet another load and he " would make it up" to me.

Keep in mind that he admitted that I didn't get what I paid for.

Furthermore, I posted original complaint several months ago. I've moved on with my life and pretty much forgot about this guy until I see all these Craigslist ads getting flagged which he says he's doing in retaliation for my complaint.

So.....I guess if you wanna do business with a juvenile that oughta have to stand in the corner and think about his bad behavior.....have at it!

@Joe Winter

Yea there is always that customer but it sounds like you ripped this guy off after he payed good money for products he didn't get.i been in this 33 years and i would have gave the guy a quarter load free to make up to him his loss.i deal with some of the most legit hi rollers in this bis and doin xxxx like this is bad business.i had one in indy that could send me a truck load and seldom send a piece I couldn't use. This guy was looking for a long term supplier and had nothing to gain complaining about his load so common sense says he is truthful.from the smart comments you made about getting bis off his post I would bet his beef is justified.

I have met a few like you that forget these retailers like this guy keep you in business and doin people like you did him will be your downfall. So before you insult this man further try not being a smart-*** and make a customer that trusted you to do the right thing that clearly you failed to do so a refund or offer to make it right.

This is about 3 bad reviews I have read on you so you may not be as able to lose good customers as you think you are. I have seen arrogance close a outfit much bigger than your little effort for just this exact thing.

You might check yourself before you wreck yourself..just saying

Angies list RIPP OFF company !!!!!

Be aware ,they will tell you on the phone the advertising contract month to month you can cancel any time.But they forgot :) ....to mention about the termination fee of 35 %

In my case 944 $ monthly for ads i GOT 5 ORDERS ONLY FOR THE MONTH ,SO the cost of each lead $188,80 per lead .....

I didn't make money , I lost money ....I usually pay $5 for the lead ....SO IT IS LIKE 500 TIMES MORE EXPENSIVE

When I want to cancel ...here is the surprise 4588$ termination fee !!!!
