We took our boat to them based on this FB and speaking with Kimberly who stated the job would be done quickly and Calvin the mechanic would make sure it was right. Well the first motor didn't fit, second motor didn't fit our boot, etc, etc, etc. They put a boot on our boat that was ripped and they patched it with something white! After we put more parts on after we got it back we got it in the water, rented a boat stall and less than 24 hours later our boat had sunk. Come to find out Kimberly was Calvin's wife and didn't work there and the actual owner we met half through, Jason, fired his only mechanics, Cal and another one that came back from lunch so stoned he couldn't even walk. So since he didn't want to honor his 30 warrenty, it's off to court we go.

SO AFTER 30 DAYS WE WENT AND REPOSSESSED OUR BOAT FROM THEIR HOME. I THINK HER HUSBAND TOLD HIS WIFE THAT WE WERE WORKING ON THE BOAT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT WE CHECKED OUT THE BOAT AND THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE TILT AND TRIM AND NOTHING WRONG WITH THE BOAT AT ALL THEY JUST DID NOT WANT TO PAY FOR IT. AFTER WE REPOED OUR BOAT WE GAVE THEM ANOTHER 30 DAYS TO COME AND PAY US AND GET THE BOAT BACK. BUT HER HUSBAND WOULD SAY HE WAS COMING TO PAY THE HOT CHECK AND THEN HE NEVER SHOWED UP AT ALL. SO AFTER ABOUT 90 DAYS OF TRYING TO GET THEM TO BRING US A PAYMENT ON OUR BOAT NOT THEIR BOAT AS THEY HAD NOT PAY THE PAYMENTS AS AGREED TO, THEN WE SOLD OUR BOAT TO ANOTHER CUSTOMER THAT PAID US AS AGREED. J. R. FULTON, OWNER OF THE TRADING POST COMPANY AND THE BOAT PS THE DALLAS BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU GIVE THE TRADING POST COMPANY A+ THEY GIVE US AN A PLUS RATING FOR 30 YEARS OF BUSINESS

The first time we took it out the trim would not go up. Chris said he would fix it and we would not have to make a payment till it was fixed. No one answered the phone for over 3 weeks. We sent emails, and left a note in their mailbox. Still no response. I just got a hold of Chris today and he said that he has already sold our boat because we defaulted on our payment. Not only that but he sold our boat with all of OUR stuff in it new stereo, 4 new life jackets, and 3 folding chairs. After reading some of the reviews from other people it seems this is a scam that they are doing on people. BEWARE DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE!
