OK first of all - Atleast I am relieved to know that , the applicance delivery nightmare that I am having is not a on eoff issue , and its there evry where in all the consumer complaint forums , bb forums , reddit and so on
Purchased washer/dryer - scheduled delivery with install - no old appliances to remove
Issue 1 : I get a 6 hour window , yes 6 hour window , Never seen any delivery company give me a 6 hr window , max was 4 hrs . Anyway thats fine , its what it is . But this is an indication of problems to come
Issue 2 : On the day of delivery , even after an hour in to teh delivery window , there is absolutely no information whatsoever , phone number fo the delivery guy , phone number of the dispatch agent , tracking information - nothing .
Just keep your phone beside you for 6 hrs
We are living in a world of amazons , ubers , door dash - where you can even see a 5$ burger on teh map and know where it is .
Issue 3 : So I finally receive a call , he says he is 15 mins away - when you give 6 hrs window , atleast 30 mins notice is minimum . I say that I will need 30 mins but will rush and could be there in 20 mins or so . I call my onsite supervisor and she reaches there in 10 mins
Issue 4 : I got tons of text messages and emails about my delivery , but on the day of the delivery , when the guys are close , I didnt get any text messag e, phone or anything . You might ask - why do you care ? I will explain in next few points , basically they dont want any official recor of these sequence of events
Issue 5 : Anyway my supervisor reaches with in 10 mins and calls abck teh delivery guy , the delivery says , yes tehy will be there , And we think ok its all sorted out now and I finally can go back to work and attend my meetings. NOO , big mistake . 20 mins the delivery guys dont show up , my supervisor calls the general switch board number ans it takes for ever to reach them . yes I wont even mention all the forwarding to teh wrong departments and so on - just know that this phone call is not easy . An dobviously they are clueless , tehy say tehy know nothing.
It been 20 mins , 30 mins and the deliveyr guys switch off their phone . Atleast you coudl say that they are not going to make it . Finally after an hour o many phone calls , both my supervispr and myself are tired and i ask her to leave
Issue 6: Here is the outrageous part , I finally get thrpugh customer service and bingo , apparently the deliveyr guys were there and no body was present . this is teh biggest joke . And I asked how she can say for sure , she says she has a picture of the house . H aha . Anybody can get a picture of the house , anytime , they could just drive and get a picture an dgo . that does prove anything . i ask if there is anythign conclusive , she says , its basically whatever the delivery guys say . Thsi is where i lost the hope. Ok whatever the delivery guy says is tru e- what bout me ? no safeguards in place ? how do you validate? hwo do you cross check ? If the delivery service was so smooth , you woudlnt be seeing the thousands of complainst online .
Issue 7: isa y thats fine - do you knwo teh sequence of events so you can investigate , the system ha sno information of when teh delivery guy called me , when they were at my door , when they left , absolutely no record , no recorded conversation , whatever the delievry guy says is true .
Dont get me wrong , i can just go ahead and sschedule a new appointment , but what if teh delivery guys do the same scam , you ahve no safe guards . Finally the supervisor assures taht she will research and get back with options
Issue 8: No follow up whatsoever , no phone , no email , no text . I call them back and surprise -- there is not even a mention of this issue , no notes , I got the case number and name of person , I am sure tehy are fake as well
I dotn even have tiem to elaborate on the torture i went through to speak to one person who can answer basic qns
oh my go d- one guy said that , as tehy are working fro home , the supervisor is not with them and so they cant talk . Come on guys , ha ha , the whole world is working form him , supervisor needs to be besid eyou to tarnsfer the call , what ?? I thought to speak on phone , we dont need to be at the same place .
Anyway - now after all this , the resolution is to "reschedule " . Ha ha . Just pray that it will work this time . Pay money for material , installation and delivery , but we dont even know when we will get , if teh delivery guys show up , so whenevr the guys want tod it they will do it .
A proper system in place , will save all of our time , surprised that this sort of thing happens in 2020 .
