I had a new refrigerator and dishwasher delivered on the 16th of February. Part of the installation was to remove my existing refrigerator into my garage. To get it out of the front door the installation crew needed to remove the old refrigerator doors. They did this and one of the crew took the doors outside. They grabbed the fridge and headed out the door, when I asked them to just put it in the garage and I can move it where I want later. I leaned into the garage from the house and hit the button to open the garage door. Well – unknown to me the other crew member had leaned my refrigerator doors against the garage door, and needless to say they fell over onto the cement.
The "old" refrigerator is a Samsung – Which I purchase at Best Buy about 5 years ago (could be 5-6 – don't recall). The refrigerator is in great shape – stainless steel and has the 2 doors and 2 drawers (Quadro cool?) I believe the price tag on it was close to $3000. It was being replaced because of kitchen remodel and we needed a counter depth fridge to fit with the new kitchen layout.
My intent was to sell the old fridge to my neighbor that has a cottage and was willing to give me $500 for it, well needless to say he is no longer interested in it. When I contacted Best Buy they said to contact Pennridge Delivery (In Michigan) because they contracted them to deliver. Basically they said that it was my fault for opening the garage door and that they are not going to pay for anything - just want them to either fix or replace the doors on the fridge. I don't see that as unreasonable.
