I recently placed an order with Dawsons, for a present for my son who is studying Sound Technology in University, he also works in a recording studio. My son told me to order through various other companies, but the website seemed 'genuine', showing various shops etc and I therefore felt the company, being in the UK, was worth a try. I ordered the item on a Monday, expecting the standard delivery to be approx that same week on Friday, but the item never came.
I then received the e-mail asking for my opinion on my experience with Dawsons, strange as the item hadn't yet arrived. I thought I would look for the tracking number given on the Fed-Ex website, this didn't exist either.
I rang Dawsons, spoke to a 'Paul' who checked the order details from the number I had been given and he told me the item had been delivered and gave me the POD signature name. I explained the name was not known by me and the item had not been received at my address and he said he would look into it and get back to me that day (Friday), As I had had no returned call by Monday/Tuesday of the following week, I rang Dawsons again, spoke to Paul again and he told me he was trying to sort out getting the item back with the courier and would re-send the item that day and it would be at my address no later than Thursday (last week on 14th March). I also gave Paul additional instructions of the area where I live. I was then asked by Paul to ring on Thursday morning to confirm a time of delivery.
I dutifully rang on Thursday morning to be told the item hadn't even left Dawsons..... I was then told it would be posted out to be delivered the following day, but this was of no use to me as I had already stayed at home on 2 occasions waiting for a delivery and I would not be at home that weekend from the Friday. I was quite upset on the phone, as I felt the first 'error' could have been rectified by sending as 'next day delivery' at the cost of Dawsons to keep a good customer relationship, but this was not offered. However, I was happy about this at the time as I could make arrangements to be home on the Thursday, but when the item hadn't even left for delivery at this point, I was disappointed.
I know my order was only for £35 and not for some expensive equipment at this time, but as this was my first purchase, which could potentially bring further custom from myself, my son, his studio colleagues and his tutors etc, I felt I had a raw deal and I wasn't offered any support to rectify the situation - I won't be using Dawsons in the future and I certainly won't be recommending them either.
