I bought one of those Power4Life Easy Foldaway Step Ladders
from ebuyer and the blue anti slip feet have maked and stained my cream bedroom carpet, sent them a photo of the evidence and had professionals out to clean it. oilbased stain will not come out!! they offered me £30, I told them this was not acceptable they are no offering £100.99 and will not budge on the offer it costs minimum of £40 to fit a carpet. they are saying I have no proof it was their ladder that caused the damage.
I said this is not acceptable and I will get back to them. Their manager is unavailable and they have told me no matter what they will be not offering any more. Please can anyone help me? not sure what to do now.

and in the real world how many of us would have thought to do this? I wouldn't have expected it to mark. How much did it cost to clean? How much for a new carpet? Get a quote and send it to them, alternatively tell them you are claiming on your household insurance and ask them to pay your excess.

Step ladders in my house have black rubber feet and there's no way they'd go near my cream carpets without laying something down first.

If you have cream carpets you should always be wary of anything staining. Yes blue jeans can, so can socks. You have to be extra vigilant. Don't know why I even agreed to have cream carpets in a couple of rooms - headache!

im curious, how long were the ladder feet in contact with the cream carpet?

how much to get it cleaned?
Assuming it can be cleaned professionally I would have thought £100 would cover it TBH

I'd take the offer. You have a lot of evidence to gather in order to prove that the ladder caused the fault. If it's such a common problem, there will be plenty of evidence on the net. It will cost you far too much time/effort/cost to progress this case with no guaranteed outcome.

Unsure of the current condition of the carpet, is it the only mark, how old, etc ? These factors will be taken into account.

Also, did you mark it more than once, e.g. when moving the ladder elsewhere ? If so, that could render you liable to a % of the blame and reduced compensation.

Miss Money Saver,

Take the money and run. There's no way you should have placed that directly upon a carpet. You should have contacted ebuyer right away when receiving the product without instructions, giving them a chance to rectify. As tough as it sounds, I'd say you were the major factor in damaging the carpet.

Finally, I would never have placed that directly on a cream carpet - for obvious reasons.

OP take the money and run, you should have been more careful with putting anything on your carpet especially that kind of colour.

Thread tidied, removed off topic posts. My earlier post was quite clear on this matter and shouldn't have been ignored re thread spoiling. There are various mechanisms for getting in touch, thread jacking/spoiling/trolling is not a justifiable action.
