What's going on?

Postby loot » Tue Dec 05, 2017 6:17 pm

Just a quick 1.
My head is done in with this.

Bought some work boots, they sent me royal mail tracking but for second class signed for, the add particulars say parcelforce48.

The tracking number when I put it into royal mail tracked shows the parcel going from Birmingham to chester to flint then delivered.
I never got it and never got a red card, i asked my neighbours who are quite good but it never went there, I went to the sorting office in Flint on Sunday a week ago, they said nothing, and they put the tracking number into their computer but said no, nothing comes up at all.

I messaged the seller to ask what's going on and they said first they'll try royal mail but then after they said to put a claim in foot not received, now today 5th was the deadline for them to respond or either of us could escalate to a claim, they've got I'm there and asked eBay to sort it out.

I genuinely don't know what else I am supposed to do and I don't have a clue why it looks like I'm in the wrong here.

Looks like what will give them the money and I lose out.

How can a tracking number lead nowhere?
Why sought I get a red card?
I haven't signed anything so surely a signature should be available?

So pissed off.

Yes all sorted Al, i got that after posting this.
The seller got paid, eBay refunded me from their own pocket because I'm such a good buyer and never had a problem ever since joining in 2005.


Still boiled my pis* :-(

A result but not a happy 1 I'm afraid :-(

I had to refund a guy a few weeks back, said he never received the tyres that I sent him. I checked with Hermes, tracking said delivered parcel to secure reception (business address), and a squiggle for a signature. Customer said that they have no reception, only 2 people working there, so who's word do I take?
Then I tried to claim on Parcel-2-Go parcel insurance, no chance as they say it's been delivered, and I have to prove that it wasn't, if I want to make a claim.
So there I am, I've lost the tyres, and paid for the delivery, can't claim on insurance, and had to refund the buyer on his word :evil: At least I get my fees refunded :roll:


The only upside is that I now no longer pay insurance on any of the packages that I send, as it's obviously a waste of money, so I should save the amount that I've lost within a few months 8) :D

It's not bullet proof is it :-( reliable postage is quite expensive I think.
This time of year too.

What we need is a high Street with lots of shops :shock:

High street shops have struggled for years to compete with supermarkets, DIY "sheds" and more recently, the internet. You'll certainly struggle to find any "normal" shops populating the high street these days, by these I mean, independant butchers, greengocers, bakers, chemists, ironmongers etc, etc, this is the reason I got out of retailing 20 years ago. Customers largely have no loyalty these days, and will buy wherever is cheapest, and not from somewhere who will give them service and advice (you won't get both!) :roll:

That's it, my soapbox is now closed :P :lol: :mrgreen:

You missed my irony there Al, :-)
I agree with you of course, we've used other selling mediums to out outsource ourselves so me being in this conundrum is what you could call a 'paradox' :-(

The search goes on fit some boots.

They're advertising branded boots but the feedback is largely based on quality variation.

So the sellers are trying to flog their wares under a brand name?
Also there's no vat on safety clothing is there? does that mean no regulation? Or is that nothing to do with importing it?

Bloody.

If I want to buy from tax dodgers I use Amazon, at least I never lose out.
