I wanted some garden furniture so I looked around and settled for a set from Gardeners World.net. I got my furniture after 2 weeks rather than the 2 days and a bit of chasing from me. I got the not in stock, just coming in etc. and as I'm fairly chilled and laid back I thought "it's ok, it happens".
The furniture arrives, I check it all off and make sure it's ok before I sign for the delivery and then take it round the back to set up. As I pick the chairs up, they start falling apart. A few days later they start splitting and to top it all off, the table starts to do the same thing. I send photos emails and call just to make sure someone has the message that all is not well.
Then the blame game starts. Is it their problem? The courier? The importer? The manufacturer? I don't care, I want a replacement. Eventually , I get a new table but no chairs to replace the dare not sit on ones and this is where I'm still at.
I call 'customer support' and despite many promises of none in the uk, not in stock, we're waiting on some they'll be in stock on the 15th or the 18th and they'll be on next day courier, the courier didn't collect, we'll use [Link] instead, there doesn't appear to be a tracking number or a consignment number oh, [Name] is dealing with that, of course we'll send you the details, we'll phone back, we'll email confirmation, there's nothing on the screen, oh, [Name] dealing with that etc. (I'm sure you get the drift)
And here I am. Still no useable chairs and a gut full of empty promises to boot. I phoned 3 times today for an update and was told that I would have more information by 5pm. NOTHING
So, if you want to spend an eternity on the phone to people who really don't care and as far as I can tell are thoroughly disinterested in providing you with either the product you ordered or indeed the support you need to get the product you ordered, who ya gonna call?
