Valen Garage Door Inc. is doing business as (DBA) Aladdin Doors Inc. in Calgary. The local owner would not accept client making payment to Aladdin Doors Inc. As such, I made payment to Valen Garage Doors Inc.
Before the commencement of installation, the owner requested me to pay 50% of the cost as deposit payable to Valen Garage Doors Inc. That is a signal of something is not right. Don't follow my footsteps and fall into the trap.
In my quote, the owner promised to installed a new Chamberlain garage door opener 8355W in my house. On the installation date, the owner installed a cheaper opener Chamberlain 8155W without notifying me. I found out after the installation was done and he claimed the distributor did not have the 8355W in stock. I complained and he gave me a price reduction of $38 at the end.
When I received the invoice, I am shocked that it was issued by "Aladdin Doors" in lieu of "Valen Garage Door Inc". The invoice has no contact address, phone number and GST number on it. The whole process is a mess.
