I have filed 3 small claims suits in my entire life and all 3 have been against GP. 2 of them were for not sending me the SF97 within the promised 60 business day time frame. The most resent(see picture) they offered me $500 to settle out of court and I accepted because I received the SF97 4 days after they were served the small claims paperwork. Funny how I magically get my paperwork once they have a lawsuit on their hands.

This isn't something I enjoy but its the only way I've found to get them to do what they said they would do. I would encourage others to do the same.

The other SF97 went the same, $500 offer and I received it a few days later. The other was a weird deal. I bought a civilian truck and the person I was told to contact for pickup wouldn't respond to schedule a pickup date. I had paid for the truck and was just trying to pick it up. Finally, after weeks and weeks I said forget it and just asked for my money back because I was worried that the truck was damaged or something. GP wouldn't refund my money so I sued and got all my money back plus damages.

Kinda like at the moment i am waiting to pick a big forklift in Phoenix and the gp rep has said sometime in late February or march before it could be picked up. And would give 24hr notice before he is there. F that.

I have had problems with them holding my EUC 's over 60 days and then another 30 days to get it approved ! We had to call the DLA to to correct the problem. it is working better for us now

Idaho lets us use a conditional title with a brand that expires in 3 years there a few hoops you need to go through. check your state to see how or if this can be done

I was pretty close to suing them on this truck, but they seem to have it fixed now. I was wondering if you have seen any "adversarial" positions from govplanet.com after you sued them? Did they ban you from future auctions?

They canceled my account but I anticipated that so I created a backup several months ago. All it takes is a different email account

It's really sad that they are so incompetent that small claims court is the preferred method to get them to do their jobs. Then they take it out on the customer by cancelling their account. Speaks to a culture at the organization that I strongly disagree with.

How did you pay? If by CC you have some protection.

But Marty I would start at the supervisor level at corporate. You should have records of the calls and texts to back up your claim.

Also some of those notifications are system generated, but a call to the right person could certainly help. Good luck!

Seriously, I didn't think it would work, but calling them three times per day actually seems to get their attention pretty fast, especially if you tell them that's what you are going to do.
