 Schuco dealer practices

Author: puzzled (

I read good things about Schuco here and decided to get a quote. A salemen comes to the house but instead of telling us about the windows, he starts with a questionaire.

He wants to know whether we've paid off our mortgage, how many people live here, how long we plan to live here.

I said, there's no way I'm sitting here to tell you my life story to get a quote for windows. My wife sees I'm steamed and says she'll deal with it. So I leave to do something more productive and he tells my wife that he can't give us a quote without both of us.

I've got the name of another Schuco dealer but if he pulls the same baloney, he's out the door too. Is this type of hard sell common to Schuco? It reminds me of the sleazy aluminum siding salesmen in TinMen.
