    Support NZ Business - yeh right !!!!

    Never had a Rant on here before, so seeing iam doing nothing, i thought i would say my bit.
    After this Covid (thing) they keep saying support your local business, ... i have been waiting to get Timber prices, and sent 8 emails and 3 phone calls to the company i normally deal with over the last 3 weeks and still hav'nt got any confirmation, or an invoice to make payment on, (i know some companies have been unindated with work load sure), but god knows when i will even get the product, to start my jobs.
    Trying to get a headlight bulb from Auckland for one of my bikes, after emailing part numbers and even sending photo's, what a drama, thats also been close to 3 weeks.
    I have just recieved a set of YSS CB750 shocks from Italy one week delivered, also a set of Megaphone mufflers for the Honda again one week delivery UK.
    By god sometimes i have no simpathy for NZ business's going down the gurggler, they certainly need some PR skills and understand what service is about.
    Looks like EBay will still keep getting my custom.

    LOL, its called a pandemic.

    My company is running at 3 times the order rate for the time of the year and the couriers are working at 1/3rd speed.

    I ordered some items online from The Warehouse. Could not be collected from the local warehouse as that's inside a Mall which was closed, so had to be picked up from Petone. There was a $20 delivery charge on top - I guess this is for shipping from the distribution centre, not thrilled but she wanted it so... Warehouse will email or txt when the item is ready for collection. A week later, level 2 commences, I call in to see if item has arrived. "No, we will let you know." Wander round the store and what I have ordered is on the shelf. Purchase the item, talk to the returns person , find I cannot cancel the online at the store but have to do it online.
    That night, go online and cancel the order and request a refund. Nothing happens for another week, when I get the email to say my order is ready for collection.
    Go back to the store, item ordered cannot be found, they will call me when it turns up. Back to the returns desk.
    Now that I have the email giving the details, they will take the return and refund BUT not the $20 delivery charge.

    Request the email address or contact number of someone higher up that I can discuss this with. Cannot be provided. I guess I wil have to go online and find this myself.
    it's not a bad thing till you throw a KLR into the mix.

    To everyone who hoped we wouldn't go back to the old normal.....

    Seems like sweating the small shit still ranks highly with some.

    Sounds like we are back. Shit service from local businesses...no stock..no interest in getting stock in unless you buy it for them first... and people order online from offshore again. How it was before.

    Customer service in NZ was shit before the chinese bat flu came along. Once you have lived in other countries for a while then return to NZ the low standard of customer service is really noticeable.

    You fuckers must be buying from the wrong retailers!

    I've bought a bunch of stuff from NZ retailers over the last couple of weeks, good service. Sure, courier delivery took 2 or 3 days longer, but I got my stuff. I got excellent service from motomox (as always) and I spent a few thousand at PBTech with no problems.

    Agreed. THe smaller retailers have got it. Its the big stores that didn't seem to get it so well.

    I know over this Flu episode, everyones says shop on line, and seems to be pushing this form of shopping, thats ok, but when you go onto Companies/retailers websites and want to make contact regarding an item or ask a question, it takes ages before some gets back to you, or they never reply, that i find frustrating, sureley someone in the business is in charge of checking emails daily, if they want to make it work.

    Yes, and still haven't got it, it was to be dispatched wednesday, (and the couriers are moving stuff through quickly now) its a Suzuki bike so i tried Suzuki Wellington with phone calls and messages no joy, so went to a Suzuki dealer in Auckland sent the year and model of the bike, what was on the bulb, and it was like ... ur... ah... dont have those....can you send some photos. How hard is sorting out a 2009 suzuki headlight bulb.
