    Default Has My mountain closed?

    I bought 6k worth of bike from them a year ago and I'm having a couple of issues with it. I'm also thinking of buying a Norco Range which the sell or at least used to.Tried to phone for two days straight with no answer so sent them a face book message.
    After seeing that they had seen my message but ignored me I told them what I really thought of the shop and its too cool for school bad attitude.
    Got a two word reply. " My mountain has closed." Closed for good? Closed for a holiday?
    Without taking a drive over there I can't verify it.
    Anyone in Brunswick confirm it's closed?
    Can I take my trek and piece of shit Reverb seat post to another dealer to get my problem sorted?

    Oh they also neglected to give me a physical receipt. " it's all in the system mate. Any problems bring it straight back".
    Hmmm

    Yeah I noticed the same thing, guessing people dont crc at a minimum and pay, or perhaps a haggle is possible with him.

    Agree completely, there is no evidence!

    I would have never walked out of a shop without a receipt after parting with that sort of money for anything. Find the ABN and check that the ABN Status is 'active'


    If it's this company here, you're in a bit of a hard spot.

    Reasons for an ASIC-initiated deregistration

    There are a few reasons why ASIC may begin deregistering a company, including if:

    the company has not paid its annual review fee within 12 months of the due date
    the company has not responded to a Company compliance notice, has not lodged any documents in 18 months, and we think it's not in business; or
    the company is being wound up and there is no liquidator.
    How does an ASIC-initiated deregistration work?

    The steps for an ASIC-initiated deregistration are:


    We'll send a letter to the company's directors and/or liquidator (if applicable)to advise of the pending deregistration.
    We'll update the company's status on our register to display as 'SOFF' (Strike off status), meaning it's being deregistered.
    We'll post a notice on our Published notices website, advising that the company will be deregistered in two months unless stopped.
    When two months have passed, we'll deregister the company and send a notice to the directors and/or liquidators to confirm.
    Once a notice has been published on the Published notices website, it can't be removed, even if deregistration is stopped.

    Possible that Trek have the purchase details. Give their Australia HQ a call, they're usually pretty helpful.
