As per title

Ordered yesterday before 2pm
Selected next day delivery at 5.99
Not dispatched until today so won't arrive until tomorrow

Next my a hole!

It'll be getting sent back as soon as it gets here for a refund, I'll buy my sizzle from my lbs

That is all [/rant]

I blame wiggle

    Ordered a book from Amazon at 5PM on Tuesday, opted for the standard free 3-5 days delivery option, and it turned up 1PM Wednesday. Now that's customer service.

    There's your problem.

    Learnt this early on and had other people say this causes them to not actually ship the same day. Entirely pointless delivery option really.

    My theory is it's a long way to the post office to get the special delivery option ;)

    Not that I find they ship same day for any order at all in my case, but special delivery will take them even more days and I have to prompt them. Have had refunds, but when you want something by the weekend they're useless.

    CRC - When deals are on they have some right bargains, but if I need it within a week, forget it.

    And yeah I blame Wiggle.

    Because they're better service and cost me more money by making me shopping there more than CRC :D

  • I ordered bars from CRC a few months ago, and they were delivered to Austria 3 days later. Maybe they read peoples threads or something?'
  • I placed an order at 1 am on monday, it arrived in tuesday mornings post... Didn't pay extra on delivery...

  • I've had issues with CRC. They told me they were short on staff last time. I told them to cancel my order and that I'll never buy from them again. Never have. My loyalty is quite fickle!

    They did get 2 chances with two different orders. I'd rather pay more now to spite them.

    I believe it's actually called cutting off your nose to spite your face.

  • My choice fella. If you want censored slow service carry on buying from there.

    Had a number of dodgy excuses for either delay or item in stock not being in stock after all. Even blamed it on volcanoes!

    Okay, it was actually the Icelandic volcano thingy that was grounding flights at the time :D

    My stuff's always arrived in a day or two (few dozen orders), sent something back once, had the refund within three days of posting.
    Good prices as well.
    I most certainly carry on buying from them.

    I have it on good authority that the volcanoes were Wiggle's fault.

  • Only ordered from them when I was in Australia because they were a stupid amount cheaper than stuff in Oz, got it within 3 days with the fast delivery, pretty impressive given that wiggle too nearly a week, free delivery with wiggle though, so can't/shouldn't really compare.

  • Touch wood... I have never ever had a problem with CRC, never payed for next day delivery and all my items have arrived within 2 days, apart from when I ordered a frame, that was a couple of days longer. But can't grumble with the service I have received.

    To be fair to CRC they must have thousands of orders a day, and its only ever negativity that reaches the surface, if everybody praised a company everytime service was excellent people would get a bit fed up.
