John E Davies Posted March 9, 2019 Share Posted March 9, 2019 I have been trying to get a written response from Sales but so far I have heard nothing after three emails. I guess I will have to call, but I need to have this in writing. I thought I would bring this issue up here to see what folks think. I received an email several months ago from a fellow Ollie owner. He was showing his trailer to a couple referred to him by Oliver Sales, and a woman tripped and nearly fell on her face exiting the stairs. He is concerned about liability and a potential personal injury lawsuit and he withdrew from the sales program. That seems a little extreme to me. However, I did not see a stranger nearly destroy her face on my driveway This had never occurred to me but he has a valid position. I would hope that Oliver Trailers would help an owner who got sued by an injured potential buyer..... Considering that the owners are their only extended sales force, this should be clarified and owners should be reassured that they are backed up by the company. I asked Anita to discuss this with the rest of the staff, and I am sure their company lawyer has some good input. Would it be prudent to have a liability release form signed by the prospective buyers? What would be the best wording? Do these stand up in court? Has anyone been injured viewing YOUR trailer, and what was the result? I am not trying to scare anybody or stir up unrest, but this is an important topic that needs to be discussed. I would really like to remain in the program, but not if I am at serious financial risk. Comments are very welcome. BTW, I have shown “Mouse” half a dozen times through this program and only earned a half commission -$125 - because they had also viewed another Ollie. I don’t care about the commission, I like interacting with people.
