Re: Advice on damaged goods with SAM Store and Move

Yes, I agree, its too big of a hassle to expect somebody else to pay for your mistake ( not wrapping the items) Hi digman, I'm a Consumer/Customer Member like you, not a Mover/Vendor etc. Would've been nice for their paperwork to have warned /advised you to wrap/cover to protect from the sun, but w...
