All,

I have been in this forum for a few years now...thanks to Shawn Hayes...and really appreciate the knowledge and Quality of discussions.

My problem: I placed an order for the Umbrella VRH system with Ravi. It has been 4 months and while he responds over text and picks up the call rarely, he has not delivered the system. My biggest mistake was to pay him in advance and I feel short changed.

Anyone here or any shop owners close to him that can help me out a little?

Thank you
Ken

Thanks Tim,
In fact, I took his contact from this forum...
The latest Ravi texted was to say he was unwell...and with the Doctors. Let’s see...

Ravi has been notoriously slow, and difficult to get a hold of - has been this way for years, but, he does "normally" deliver.

 

Did you pay him via wire or via CC?  At this point, if via CC, a simple charge back seems like your best option.

Paid through wire...that’s why any recourse is difficult. He repeatedly says he won’t let me down and said he will revert with a date next week...let’s see.
I was wondering if there was anyone here that knows and is local to him...to seek help via A friendly reminder. I am sure some shops deal with him, but they may be hesitant due to their strategic relationship.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Hi Doug, that will be a huge help for me. Given that you are extremely busy, I was hesitant to ask. I ordered VRH for 4 corners with KW coil over kit and springs to be used with Litchfield. So far he had given me bogus shipment dates and promised 1st April for the 3rd time citing medical issues over last two months.
I will PM you my Cell...
Thank you
Ken

Quick update: so far I have only received the air pipes :(....rest of the pieces may come in future. Hope keeps us going.

I should have placed the order with some one like Doug - WGP who is local to Umbrella.

From not shipping the parts ? Stress induced anxiety?
