Shouldn't a reputable company have "suggested" that when they clearly knew the product being re-chromed was to be used on a boat in a "saltwater" environment?

Yes, one would think so, if'n they had a brain.

Very unfortunate. I wish you the best in getting this issue resolved in a satisfactory manner.

Not much, but thanks for the reminder

The BBB did do an "investigation" and I received a CC on a letter from the president of APS stating pretty much what I posted above. They denied any responsibility. I will scan the letter tomorrow and get some pictures soon. In the meantime I have contacted the court and I'm awaiting reply.

Cheers,
Shawn

Sorry about your situation and I know this is a day late and a buck short, but, holy gamoly! They charged you over a $1000 to chrome 4 dorades?

I work in a very high end automobile restoration and repair shop and we have a fair amount of parts that need to be re-chromed and even chromed for the first time. What they charged you is completely out of line with the pricing that I see.

We actually send out the wheels to a place in CA (we're in VA) to be chromed, because the quality is top-notch. We just sent out 8 wheels and 4 center caps, got them back in 3 weeks, and paid less for a wheel to get chromed than you did for one dorade.

I think how you got treated is pretty shitty to say the least. This is from a company that actually goes to boat shows to drum up business?
