bike shop owner dies, customer bikes stuck in shop

So the owner of my local bike shop passed away 2 days before Christmas. He was a super great guy.

However, immediatley after he died lawyers for his estate closed the shop pending resolution of his estate.

There were over 30 customers who had bikes in the shop for repair or waiting for assembly after purchase.

There are maybe 50 customers who ordered parts or complete bikes that were returned to the shipper.

Customers are STUCK and no one has contacted them and there is NO WAY to get their bikes out of the shop or their money refunded from orders.

Recently there was a notice posted by a former employee of the shop who said that the estate issues were being sorted out by the attorneys and there was no time table for resolution.

Its been 2 months now.

I know that my fathers probate took over a year to complete.

Really sucks for these customers to have their bikes locked up like this.

Something smells, the executer of the estate can appoint someone to manage the business during probate. There has to be more that you have not been told.

I assume your bike is valuable enough to warrant some hassle in recovering.

You are a creditor of the deceased, and have a claim on his estate, before any disbursement to any heirs.

Take your receipt/service tag and present it to the court.

Good luck. What a pain in the @$$.

While we understand the guy's frustration - illegal breaking and entering is probably not the best course of action.
