2 weeks before Christmas Amerigas required a $500 deposit to turn on our heat. We recieved our first bill postmarked on Jan.19 and due on the 19th,I was upset because it said failure to pay would result in a late fee.
So I called the company and was told I had untill Jan.28th to pay the bill before a late charge was added.I forgot to pay the bill by then anyways...on Feb.3rd I woke up to a notice on my door stating we had been shut off for non-payment. Our bill was $133!!!!! And only 5 days late! I payed them their rediculous fee to turn it back on and paid my bill.
I thought there were laws to protect us from our heat being shut off but apparantly AmeriGas can treat us crappy b/c they are not governed by the same Ma laws as let;s say MassElectric.
