Bought an item off e-buyer and paid the extra charges for "guaranteed" Friday delivery .
I have just waited in all day today for this guaranteed delivery.... No delivery was attempted and no card was left at my address.
Just checked online and Yodel are saying "Delivery attempted - Unable to gain access" .... Sorry Yodel - but this is totally untrue. I waited in all day today.
I do understand that sometimes "things can go wrong" - but why the dishonesty by stating that a delivery was attempted - when it clearly was not.
I will now be contacting e-buyer and I will be requesting a full refund of those extra charges that I paid for the so called "guaranteed" delivery.
UPDATE ........To be fair ...... It did come the next day ( the day after I wrote the above review) ...Should have been Friday - came Saturday
To be honest.... I usually order my stuff from DV or Thomann and this is the very first time that I have used Andertons....... DV never seemed to have the particular item in stock ( I checked their website every other day for over a month ) and Thomann were way too expensive for the very same item ... Andertons had 10 in stock and offered next day delivery ... I duly ordered on-line using Pay Pal and the UPS truck turned up at my house at 11. 45 am the next day.....
Perfect .... I will definitely be using these guys again..
I ordered a Tascam DP32 here in the UK for delivery to a friend in Cork, Ireland.... I ordered it on Friday and it was delivered to Cork on the following Tuesday.... They sent e-mails confirming item had been shipped, tracking numbers and also another e mail on the day of delivery advising what time it would be delivered... It is also worth mentioning that dv247 were by far the cheapest online for this item with FREE DELIVERY to Ireland. (Thomann - Germany, were over £70 dearer for this exact same item) ... I was so impressed with their service that I have just ordered a bass guitar + effects pedal from them and will soon be ordering some studio headphones...... Thumbs up to dv247
Great service. I visited their shop in Bexleyheath a couple of months ago and bought an external filter. I have since bought lots of other items for my aquarium using their eBay shop. All items have been delivered very quickly with no problems at all. They also took the time to respond to my e-mail when I needed some advise on the best external filter for my particular set up... 10/10 for great service.
Been using eBay for about 5 years now, mostly as a buyer. In the last 5 years and over 250 transactions later, I have only ever had one problem. This was resolved very quickly by eBay and they gave me an immediate refund. Anything I need I always look for it on eBay first, usually obtaining a huge saving on high st prices. My tip would be to always use PayPal, as this protects your purchases. If you are looking for a certain item then, on the right hand side of the page, tick the "auction only" box, as this will filter out a lot of the shops and mostly show the ordinary private sellers items. I have had some real bargains from "Auction only" private sellers recently. All these were unwanted gifts.These include:
New Ralph Lauren Polo Black EDT gift set. £23 (high street £60)
New Biorb Life designer fish tank. £150 (high street £280+)
New Amethyst Gold ring. 10g of solid gold £54 (high street £199)
Near New Fender Telecaster electric guitar. £240 (high street (£499)
New Davidoff "Champion" 90mil EDT spray. £19 (high street £42)
New Levi 501 Jeans. £14 (high street £50 - £70)
New 14ct solid Gold Aquamarine ring £24. Gift for her indoors. (yet to be valued but even the scrap value would be 3 times more than I paid)
All the above items were bought for my own use, not to sell on to make a profit, although this is always possible. But if you do this regularly eBay may list you as a business and you may be forced to pay business tax etc. I have also sold a few household items such as a digital camera, a HD camcorder, a few coins and some jewelery. My only criticism is that Ebay sellers fees are a bit on the high side. My tip for private sellers is DO NOT select a "reserve" price. If you do this then you will be charged a fee even if your item does not sell. If you want a minimum price for your item then select your "start price" close to the minimum price that you want. For example, if you want a minimum of £150, then set your starting price at £149. If your item does not sell then you wont be charged a " reserve" fee.
Lets face it, anything you could ever need can be found on this site and a bargain can always be found. It is sometimes also fun to just simply "window shop" or "browse" the various listings and something will always catch your eye. Another tip for buyers is to "browse" the private listings a few days after Christmas, its amazing the amount of brand new unwanted gifts that are listed at a fraction of their high street price.
