What could be done when you buy furniture from a a and the refrigerator was too High to Start with a about Koo for about a 19-foot Box a and i got a stove there and paid Over $900 on All of it. They came and took All the furniture because we missed a couple of payments while in the Hospital. I just wondered if there was something that could be done about it.

The store offers a guaranteed payment plan which a customer May choose for a fee the fee varies according to the amount bought and what is bought. Coverage for a color to for instance would be More than a sofa since it is More Likely to require repair service. The insurance is Good for the length of the contract of some hardship lasting More than 30 Days occurs such As inability to work because of sickness and the person provides proof from his doctor indicating when he came under his care the insurance takes care of the payment. Remember the plan takes Over Only after 30 Days. Of you had insurance and were disabled More than 30 Days and did t advise the company of your circumstances they know about your hardship the manager said at the moment he had 20 cards on file of customers whose doctors had certified they were sick and unable to work and in the cases where they had the guaranteed payment plan their payments were being covered supposing your hardship did no to last 30 Days or you did no to let the store know you were sick then they would normally go through Legal channels first you would be notified of a hearing before the magistrate. You a be Given about to Days to appear and explain the reason for the non payment of you done to show up for a hearing and again done to let the store know Why then papers Are served and the furniture is repossessed. From the stores Point of View they would prefer not to have to repossess it As often the merchandise has been abused to the Point it be sold for the balance due. Without knowing what the circumstances were in your Case the manager asks that you come Down and talk to him and maybe something could be worked out.
