Canyon Whitewater Inflatables - Woes

Well after being jerked around for two years I have to warn / inform the following:

I filed a complaint with Oregon AG which was no help as it seems they need a minimum of 3 -6 complaints before tacking any action.

Filed small claims action and Coos County Sherriff can not serve them as there address on file ( PRINCIPAL PLACE OF BUSINESS 1212 MEMORY LN , COOS BAY OR 97420 with Oregon Secretary of State Corporate Division does not exist.

If anyone is thinking of entering into a contract I HIGHLY recommend adding the following to your contract.

If buyer or seller defaults all Attorney fees to enforce said contract shall be paid by the defaulting party.

Get a firm delivery date in writing.

Actually pay a visit to manufacturing location or verify it by county records ect.

Deposit of no more than 20 percent down. ( why tie up your m0ney? )

And lastly keep detailed records of ALL e-mails ect to verify your claims. I have 80 + pages to dispute all ridiculous assertions made and now I am playing the catch me if you can game. Oh well what was it John Paul Jones so famously said

FYI - I am from Idaho, almost 60 and due to Girlfriends cancer and treatments I allowed yes allowed this to go on for to long but I hope to save anyone else from my mistakes.

If any additional info desired PM

I was thinking of doing business with canyon a couple years ago. I called them and they seemed really nice. I asked about thier material and they freely offered to send me a small sample. I didn't even ask. They never did deliver. That was the end of my relationship with canyon. I figured "If they can't keep the small promises, then stay away!"

I would add to your list: Make a small request or purchase before shelling out the cash. Establish trust!

Hope everything works out.

Actually that is not them. I researched that in the beginning and it is another company.
Canyon is in Oregon and they moved. That was one of the delays I accepted because I was too involved in my girlfriends cancer treatments. But the last straw was we celebrated her recovery spending two weeks last summer in Oregon along the coast. I was then to pick up the remainder of the order, switching out the demo tubes. He avoided me until I was in Oregon to then tell me he was working on them but was unable to finish them. A month later I got the same BS and I asked " If he was working on them the 5th of July now over a month later why are they not done". Never answered that question and that was our last conversation.
Just one of many instances LMAO
Sorry for the long reply - agitated !!!!

i looked up their articles of organization when they started their business (and probably abit more optimistic and not dodging debts) in 2011. it has an actual real residential address that may be useful to you and serving them. check your pm's for the PDF link and address.

obviously, there are two sides to every story but good luck to you and hope it helps, if your claims are legit.

Oh ok. I am not a spammer. Actually I had posted in defense of Canyon Whitewater Inflatables when someone confused them with an Idaho Co. 2 years ago if you can believe that !!!! But in any case I can more than certainly back up anything I say(unlike others) or post to ANYONE. Just ask !
