Hi Frank. I can only report what our experience has been thus far with PL. My sister and I made the 7 hr trek down to ParkLiner
Mid Sept. We made all our arrangements through Cameron Jones. Cameron is a knowledgable young man passionate about the Parkliner
. At that time Sept 21 we sat down w/ Cameron and went over the options list. We were told that a Thanksgiving delivery date was realistic. Though we put down our 2,000 dollar deposit we did not get a receipt nor copy of our options sheet. I can not blame Cameron nor anyone at PL because we didn't ask either. I chalk it up to our being excited about our decision and how impressed were we with the PL layout documents receipt/paperwork wasn't even on the radar as went happily on our way. Fast forward to today's date things have changed a bit for us. By way of email with Cameron we needed to know how realistic a Thanksgiving delivery date was. Result is: we decided to be patient and put our PL on hold till after the first of the yr. I will say though that why we were sitting in their very humble office we were introduced to one of the PL techs as he was clocking out. We said , "have a nice weekend" and he said "thanks I will AFTER I am done work here". It than became clear that they are trying to make delivery dates by working Saturdays.
Frank and anyone else interested in PL company you might want to go to PL website and click on their Facebook link. There is a current article from N.C. paper where Chandler is interviewed. I personally found it to be a very good article. After reading it I was left with a deeper appreciation for Chandler and his small crew. He seems humble and sincere , that his strengths are more in the engineer , design, execution of design rather than business skills. That they are having staffing issues ( competency/skill related) when it comes to giving customers delivery dates. Frank , probably not what you wanted to hear nor is it the reality we wanted either. We figure though that it is all good b/c hopefully by our decision to wait we will be getting a "2nd generation" PL (my words NOT
theirs)... By waiting our PL will be one from the new/ revised finerglass mould and hopefully more of the kinks worked out. I applaud the PL owners who have skills and knowledge ( Deryk, Frank, Thom, Katie) to do any repairs or mods themselves. Very Best to everyone! BL and Bev (2 sisters)
