Propane Tank Fill Over Reaction?
Yesterday we checked and our tank was down to 5%. We have a small tank so my wife called yesterday and scheduled a fill up.
They came today, filled the tank and placed a pad lock on the tank,
No we are not behind on payment in any fashion and have not been ever for 12 and a half years now.
They told my wife that they would not turn the valve back on until they do a service inspection to check pressure at all of the points of use in the house. This was explained to her that it was a minimum 100 dollar fee plus hourly labor.
I talked to the wife on the phone from work, got there phone number and called them to tell them that I would not allow them to extort money from my wife like this.
They said they would come and get the tank, but would halve to charge me for pumping the propane off, a 15 % fee per gallon and a pick up charge of I believe 200$ I was getting red in the face by this time.
So when I got home tonight I loaded the tank up on my equipment trailer, drove it to Ionia unloaded it and set it on the cement walkway in front of their building.
My wife says I over reacted.
What do you think.
