Great delivery and driver. Rubin is the best
This delivery rates as the best I had. The order went through easily and I was kept informed all the way. The driver, Rubin, even phoned me and was on time.
one of these drivers dumped a load of rubbish in front of my house after delivering to someone else and then drove off. Disgusting behaviour and I would never recommend this company to anyone
Professional and prompt
I have received approx 10 deliveries from Bunnings in the last couple of months, every single one has arrived within 2 days of placing the order. That is highly unusual in Victoria during covid, where Australia Post takes a month, or more!
ANC provide good notifications , every order has been correct and in perfect condition. I was home when the last order was delivered and the driver was very professional, helpful and friendly.
Have to admit that I am very surprised to see so many terrible reviews here on product review.
Having had bad experiences with other logistics companies I was relieved that my TV from Good Guys was delivered on time - I received a message the night before to advise time frame, then another one advising my delivery was 30 minutes away, TV delivered pretty much 30 minutes later. Well done ANC.
Incredibly lazy and unprofessional staff.
The driver tried to offload the package to anyone in the office building and when was sent up to the address on the package he returned to the lobby and tried to hide the package when approached he said it is "too hard" to go to the tenant because he got off at the wrong floor. When I called their head office to let them know they fobbed it off and said they can't help me.
About bloody time ANC
Not a paid review...But just got my delivery a day earlier than I expected. Nice for a change. Makes up for the last three times that were PATHETIC, two out of three were two days late. The drivers response, " Not my EFFING problem"....I kid you not.
ANC - never use them again
Terrible service. Confirmed 4 times that our delivery would arrive between 2 and 5 on a Saturday. Called at 5.30 and said it was too late and it would be arriving on Tuesday. I would never use them again or recommend them.
I ordered an outdoor setting to be delivered to my house 5 minutes from the store. I was given a delivery window of 3pm-6pm on Friday. At 6pm i get a message saying the driver is 20 minutes away. 40 minutes later i get a call saying the truck has broken down they think it should be a quick fix and be delivered later that night but they would call me back soon to confirm. Still no big issue for me. 2 hours later i try to call them and the office is closed and the driver wont answer his mobile. I call the shop the next morning pretty annoyed they...call ANC as they have not been notified of issues either. I get a call back from the shop that it should now be delivered before lunch on the same day ( Saturday ). its not 1pm and I called ANC directly to be told the driver is in the city and on the way home he will get a truck and should have it out to me today..... Are you kidding me if you don't deliver the goods when you say you will make sure you do it first thing or at least when you say you will. I feel sorry for the shop I bought from because I will be asking them now to compensate me as i have had a day off work on Friday to accept the delivery as there is no where to leave it if no one is home and now i have had to cancel all my plans for Saturday to wait around.
Parcel left on street
Today I was meant to receive a parcel from my pet items provider. When going out to do errands I found the box on the street, leaning towards my door but no one had rang the bell to alert me they were leaving the parcel. Anyone could have passed and taken my box. If the delivery person was in such rush that could not even ring the bell and find out if someone could come to the door to receive the parcel, he/she should have at least put on the inside of the property or even on top of the wall. Terrible service, I dont feel safe knowing that they would be delivering my items, they could be just taken by anyone passing by my street and I would not even know that my parcel had been "delivered". Avoid them.
Didn't deliver - claimed we weren't home
Bunnings delivery - ANC driver called from their ute and never came to the door. We didn't answer the phone as we were in a meeting for work. Phone call was followed by 3 rude text messages asking if 'we wanted it'. They drove away after waiting 4 mins outside. Our door bell was never rung, the door never knocked on, and the driver didn't both getting out of their ute at any point...and we have all of that on our security footage from our house cameras.
When we called ANC - who left a voice mail message - they claimed he did knock on our door ...and sent a photo from the street of our 'empty' house demonstrating that they tried delivering. When we told them that they didn't get out of their ute, they told us that wasn't true, he knocked on our door. When we told them we have security footage of no one getting out of the ute and it just sitting in the street (not even properly parked) they didn't bother apologising and said he'll reattempt delivery today. Not wanting to waste more time wondering when the delivery would arrive, we called Bunnings customer service, who were EXCEPTIONALLY HELPFUL (shoutout of thanks to the Taylors Lakes store). They told us the driver was returning to the warehouse, but unsure when and that they'll contact us with a revised time but that it won't be today, despite what ANC said. I understand that it's a tough time for delivery drivers, as COVID-19 has totally pushed up demand. But for ANC to actively lie to customers over the phone, I really question why Bunnings bothers to use them (or any company for that matter). I'm ok with people being run off their feet and genuinely trying to do their job, but I'm not ok with companies that lie to customers and do a poor attempt at their job, especially when we consider how many people are out of work right now.
Terrible service. Did not deliver when promised. Poor communication. Had to take 2 days off work
Avoid using this company. I don't know how they are in business. Said they would come on Friday. I took the day off work and called to ask for a delivery window (which they said would be texted the night before- never received). They then tell me it's not coming til Tuesday due to some stuff up on their end. Not very apologetic. Unacceptable that I had to chase them- were they ever going to tell me it's not coming today?
So now I have to take two days off work because this company can't do their job. When I asked how I could make a complaint ...the girl on the phone said I had to complain to West Elm. This is so inefficient. I am not surprised they make rudimentary mistakes if they refuse to take feedback on their service. It's ridiculous. Unfortunately when you order through companies you don't know which courier they are using til you have placed the order. Hopefully all the negative reviews here make some companies think twice and use a better service.
Unprofessional, disrespectful, complacent
Driver 1 recognised incorrect vehicle for product, did not rebook. Customer Service person on phone - Not willing to assist in any manner. Driver 2 Phoned myself (wrong customer), on mentioning my order his response was "oh" and hung up. No Apology or further information. 1hr later, I had to follow up driver, when told I will not be receiving my delivery. (Was supposed to be on site by midday this day). On notifying my supplier, they made enquiries, then returned my call notifying me delivery will be made within half hour. Sitting at site for 1.../2hr, ANC representative rang to say "it's not being delivered". This has caused 6hrs loss to my business in labour, plus 3 hrs of my own time after hours, plus the 20 phone calls/texts/etc it took to get delivery mid morning the next day. ANC offered NO compensation or apology. NOTE: the attached text message is from the afternoon delivery as the morning delivery did not get recorded. Driver 3 on the next day was the only reason I even give 1 star. Even he was frustrated by the entire scenario.
Terrible. Did not answer his phone and my contactless delivery was recorded as failed delivery
I ordered contactless Ikea delivery of a bookshelf. They called me in the morning, I missed the call and called back. No reply. They then called half an hour; I missed this call and called back straight away numerous times. Finally a email saying as no contact had been made the order was cancelled. This was so unfair as the driver would not answer his mobile; he finally replied to say he was already at home! What an easy way to do you job- call a few buzzes then don’t answer your phone at all at any time
Worst couriers I've come across
Lied to me several times, promised delivery at certain times then cancelled again, ended up getting a refund from supplier, Fridge never got delivered. I bought from another supplier so I didn't have to deal with ANC lies again.
What a disgrace of a delivery company. Complete lack of communication! Every negative review left here is well deserved.
ANC contacted me 7:30pm (90minutes after the delivery window) to explain that my order was not coming today. That their driver had entered a hotspot and had to be quarantined
Driver was rude as carried on to the client as there were stairs at the property. Both Bunnings and ANC advised it was a steep site with 2 stair cases. Terrible service. Took photos in the clients home without permission. Don’t Risk using these guys
Had a very good experience!
We had a washing machine delivered and an old one taken away. The delivery and removal was via a very narrow staircase and tight turn around. The guys turned up on time, took great care of my mums property and were quick and polite. We had an excellent experience. Thank you so much.
Do not use
Do not use this company - ANC Drivers are lazy and will make any kind of excuse not to complete a delivery. They are extremely disorganized and rude. Avoid at all costs.
DO OT USE THIS COMPANY
We had a delivery scheduled for Monday which never arrived then was rescheduled for Wednesday and the driver thought it was delivered Monday so they want to deliver on Friday. The customer service girl on the phone was so rude and unhelpful. How they are still in business I will never know. AVOID IF POSSIBLE.
Hiring the worst drivers in NSW, guy would not listen to requests to bring items to the door.
Driver named [name removed] refused to bring Ikea items to my door, and he put all the items into the garage when the door was 5 meters away. The door did have a small flight of stairs (less than 10 steps) and he had a intern driver who he bossed around anyway - but refused to deliver items as promised on the ANC website. When I asked [Name Removed] which company he worked for, he blatantly lied and said he worked for IKEA and laughed. There were both boxes and towels, and he put the towels UNDER my boxes, making them oil from the garage fl...oor. He kept insisting that he had authority to leave the items in the garage, when I was point blank in his face telling him he could not put the items in the garage. (I pay the rent so I have authority on where the items can be left). I have had deliveries from Aus Post, Fastway, Amazon, DHL, they are the worst by far.
Call centre customer service so rude
I am disappointed and really upset in organising a courier date 20 April 2020 time 2.10 PM a lady from ANC not once did she listen to what I have to say, was so rude! Over talked me and had the nerve to hang up, WOW! What kind of service is this to a paying business. Epic fail to Australian national couriers major disappointment.
Amazing lack of service
Purchased 2 fridges from Good Guys paid for upgraded delivery service including additional per step money to deliver upstairs, installation and removal of old fridges. Driver arrived with small bar fridge for downstairs which he left in its carton outside, when I enquiredwhere the other larger fridge was for upstairs he claimed he had no idea and drove off, 5 minutes later he reappears and advises he has the other fridge. Constant complaining from the driver how this was really a 4 man job whilst they, 2 of them delivered the fridge upstairs. ...Whilst installing it they dragged the old fridge across the kitchen floor ruining it. Rang Good Guys immediately who advised they would rectify it ANC contacted me sent someone out to check damage and advised me to get a quote, all going well I thought, submitted the quote and that was the last I heard from anyone, chased it several times with both companies, and was told by ANC that the quote was excessive, and they were getting their own, again heard nothing, constantly asked Good Guys to follow it up, nothing. After several months I lodged with fair trading, and eventually they paid the original quote amount I had submitted ,what an ordeal, NEVER AGAIN, in future the first question I will be asking when I purchase anything that needs delivering is, what delivery company do you use?
The most poor excuse of service I've experienced in a company and a delivery team (driver 7303)
The laziness and rudeness of driver 7303 who does the delivery run from the Good Guys Bankstown Home Centre.
Refusing to complete a job - One that was paid for in full $70. To deliver, install a new washing machine remove the old unit, responding "This is too hard to move and install, this is not my problem."
My brother and I went over the next day to my folks place and completed their job in 10 minutes (What 2 professional delivery guys couldn't do apparently). If I had known how useless they were, I would have done it myself and saved $70. ...I contacted ANC to bring this up, they didn't care. How is a courier company able to get away with hiring such incompetent, lazy drivers, unprofessional staff and providing horrible customer service able to continue running??
Friendly, on time and efficient service. Jebran from Miele was very professional to deal with and very competent. He ensured the appliance was installed correctly, explained its functions and provided very useful advice.
we needed a special phone for an elderly member of our family because his landline had dropped out. I phoned Telstra in the afternoon and by 8.30 pm the courier had arrived and the phone was set-up and ready to go. The courier was so helpful, explaining clearly what we needed to do to use the new phone and setting it up so it was ready for calls.
I would recommend ANC couriers to anyone needing fast and efficient delivery of items.
