Gainesville, VA asked in Consumer Law for Virginia

Q: We took our rv in for repair last fall. Guy kept saying backed up/ needed more time etc. He is now avoiding us.

We originally paid to store the RV but the owner also does repairs so we went ahead and had him do our external repairs. Was given a quote we agreed to. Maintained contact with him and when he was ready to start our repair he would not take a credit card over the phone so I requested he send me the form via email and I would return it. Reminded him via text I was waiting for the form. I then offered to meet him in person to provide the deposit. Now we are in the Thanksgiving, Christmas travel period. We were unable to use the rv for xmas travel and bought plane tickets. He said we could bring payment after xmas but that he was out of town. So my husband started to contact him and would even just drop by to make the deposit and each time the guy would say he's not there (property is secured by a large gate). He would always answer my calls. He told me to come after 10am the next Mon to make the deposit. I texted I was on my way to make sure he was there. No response. Not answering

A: At this point, I think you have to send a letter through a law firm or file a lawsuit. Hopefully, the RV is still at the property, but you really have no way of knowing (unless you can see it through the gate). I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to retain a firm. Good luck.
