    I don't know, my truckcraft salesman:rolleyes: sent me a newspaper article. They said no one was answering the phones. I'm sure I'll see the auction ad when it comes out.

    Yes they closed but Bri Mar has bought them out. The guys who own Brimar use to work for easy dumper years ago and then quit and went out on their own.

    You can actually put smooth Line-X on the bottom. The guy told me he could spray it smooth when I got my truck done. It would be kind of expensive though.

    I just called them and they did answer the phone. I asked if they were still open and the guy wanted to know why I wanted to know. I told him that I had heard they had shut their doors. He then wanted to know if we were a dealer or if I was looking for a dealer.

    Did they really file chapter 7 BK? I have an account with them and they keep calling me for payment EVEN though it is not due for 20 more days?

    Well, what should I do? Send it out? Im sure anything after you file for Bankruptcy would be illegal if you would collect payment on correct? Should I consult my attorney on this one?

    The guy told me that if I was not sending payment by the end of next week, then he would contact there company lawyer, well I said how can you do that when the payment is not even due yet?

    im not sure, you really need to talk to a an attorny

    ill tell you what, if they are hurting for money that bad, i would tell them to just take it to there lawyer, then offer to settle the entire account for 50% , great way to save your self money, i mean if they are going to act like that -

    If that's how you like to do buisness. I would just wait untill the bill is due and pay it, no sense kicking someone when they are down. They shouldn't have called you but desperate times call for desperate measures. JMO

    heres the difference, my payment is due on a certain day, it will be paid by that day , just because your in a tight spot is no reason to bug me. now heres the simpathetic part... like you say , desperate times... if they call and say , we are tring to collect early for ______ blank , reason... i would probably just pay , assuming i have no other problems with them. i have no problem making an early payment to help out a company if they ask for it. but you do this month , and i would bet 20 days from now , you will be making another payment, soo 3 moths will have passed and you will have paid 5 months payments. snow plowers might have had a good yr last year, but just like the rest of the economy , we too can hurt for business, fuel is up, hows that effect your buttom line? salt is up? u get the point.

    threaten me with an attorney, and the payment isnt even due..... WAY OUT OF LINE, asking nicly is one thing... go ahead and threaten me.... and ill just hold out... i would with hold payment 3 months, then make them settle... clearly if they are going to threaten me , this is not a company i would plan on doing business with again .

    now , if you really want to help them out. call them , explain you really think they are out of line, and make the payment. if they do it again.... then at least you gave them a second chance.... i really dont see it as wrong , if they are going to act like that,im not hear to play games

    I doubt they will negotiate your debt. They are no longer scrambling to save the ship, it's sunk. They are just putting everything they can in the lifeboats.

    Here's a little about the basics

    If they are calling you before the payment is due..... and if they are being threatening and harassing... the life boats must be sinking too, and i would be willing to bet they would. depending on how long ur loan is with them. as JD said, i would try not to kick someone when they are down, but i have no problem, if thats how they do business.

    I do agree with you Elite, they shouldn't have even called. The bottom line is you owe them the money.

    my point being , im fine with the call (it is out of line) providing its of a friendly nature..... not when it starts involving the words lawyer.... normally at that point i just say " well Sir, as a protection to myself, i will no longer be handleing this account, i will refure your selfs dirrectly to my laywer, and maybe you to can figure this out together. as of this moment im placing your account on hold until i hear other wise from my attorney , as i do not like being threatened
