Can't find a Company Report forum so I put this here:

I ordered cable and connectors from Maplins 'on line store' on Tues 12th but still hadn't received them by today, so I called customer service and was informed that my order would be dispatched today.. :Angry:.. I asked why the delay and was told it was due to a warehouse problem.. but they would be with me by Monday .. :Angry:
I think this is really poor service, I was hoping to do the work this weekend, more time wasted, I would have driven to the nearest store if I'd known how long it was going to take.. :RollEyes:

More excuses and a promise of dispatch ASAP.. hmm ... so, I demand to speak to a supervisor and duly logged a complaint, but got promise of immediate dispatch..

Hi Jim

Im hoping this is an isolated case which they said was due to them moving warehouses.. but that's no consolation when your waiting for parts .. :RollEyes:
