Bought a fridge and TV from Samsung recently, waited at home on specified delivery time and date but no one showed up, not a truck in sight, and then they claim they “attempted” delivery but failed. What absolute rubbish and an outright lie. No attempt was made. Samsung directed me back to them, however they are non-responsive and it’s been 4 weeks now since they “attempted” delivery. Nothing from them since. Spoke to Samsung call center again and they said “ANC will be intouch within 5-10 working days”, still nothing 1.5 weeks later. Samsung, why use such a sh*t company? Take a read of these reviews and dump them, or lose loyal customers in the future as a result of their behaviour.
ANC Courier service
My experience dealing with ANC Courier Service was very stressful. They failed to deliver my new Miele dishwasher on the appointed day without any explanation or even contact (there has never been an explanation). After 2 further wasted days of extensive calls to Miele and Good Guys (the vendor), a new delivery date was finally arranged. On that day, there was no contact providing delivery details until I rang yet again. This was then one week later. The 2 guys who delivered and installed the machine were polite and efficient. But I would not recommend ANC and wonder why any reputable company continues to use them.
I never have chosen the company by myself.
but the brillant online shop i bought, Pottery Barn Kids, chose this idiotic company for delivery.
and as you all have seen from other reviews and stars given.
I dont need to explain the same thing
How are these guys in business?
Waited all morning for a delivery and installation in inner city Sydney. Truck driver told parking 20 meters from home for drop off and parking. I was told it was too far and they could not park the truck because it was full of valuables (??) and DROVE OFF
No idea when I will receive my dishwasher.
Worst Delivery Company in Australia
Zero star, worst delivery company in Australia. Don't know why samsung is using this rubbish company for their deliveries where as there are alot of other better companies like dhl, tnt and fedex. Ordered tv from samsung 3 weeks ago still not recieved. This ANC keep cancelling my delivery for no reason. When i contact samsung they saying my tv is already with anc for delivery. And ANC on other end is hopeless.
Pretend to deliver
They are yet to deliver my coffee table ordered from pottery barn even although they have said it’s been delivered. I even received a text message 5 mins before it was due to arrive (after waiting at home) to say they are sorry but it wasn’t even loaded on the truck?! Still waiting for this item to be delivered!
I'd give zero stars if I could
Meant to be delivering to a fairly new area and sometimes drivers have issues finding my address, though this has been less and less of a problem lately. Driver from ANC called several times, complaining that he was running late and "was only supposed to spend 2 minutes per delivery and it's been 15". Continuously pinned the blame on me for running late, refused to follow my directions into the estate. Was angry and unpleasant to deal with the whole time. Apparently lacked enough comprehension to read street signs as they were being described. Never had this level of rudeness from a delivery driver in the past.
Lie Samsung must change the delivery company
Misleads on delivery information and doesn't care to update the customers. please don't trust their SMS information. Samsung must change to some other delivery company. Samsung is getting a bad reputation because of them.
Got an Ikea order delivered by these guys and one item was missing. Not a huge problem in itself. But when I go to the store I can't get a refund because 'I signed that everything was there', Low and behold theres a fake signature and photos of my doorstep. I was actually home for this delivery and had my door open but they didn't knock or even attempt. They dropped the packages (which were damaged) and I can tell they noticed that some were missing as they were yelling expletives up and down the street while unloading. Then they dropped the pa...ckages, forged my signature, and ran. Now I am out several hundreds of dollars without a refund for 'signing' and the drivers have committed a federal offence. Thanks for that. Theres also no direct way to contact with complaints as their website seems to be commercially focused rather than customer.
Blatantly lie about delivering.
Too lazy to actually deliver and even worse when coming up with an excuse as to why they didn't deliver. And to top it off, said they delivered the item when they hadnt even come up my street! And now they are 'apparently' delivering it 4 days late....without any tracking.
Why would anyone use them
Ordered furniture from west elm in November.
Two things on back order and two things in stock in Sydney. I am in Brisbane.
Have now taken three days off work to get these items at their times they have to me and they never showed up or called.
When I called them they said that they couldn’t get the items from the warehouse yet no phone call to even let me know.
Now another day and another stuff up.
When west elm has made sure my items were available i now get another moved date. After taking today off work.
I have since found out anc actually own and run the warehouse. So if they say west elm didn’t hand it over. Then that is a lie.
It is all ANC run and stuff ups
Incompetence at its finest.
Ordered from pottery barn kids in November. Received text message in January saying they were delivering the following day. My partner took the morning off work and no one showed up. There was never any correspondence to explain or to reschedule delivery. 2 months later and 6 excruciating phone calls to pottery barn / ANC later I am none the wiser as to where my delivery is and whether it will be delivered this year. Empty promises each time and pure incompetence with each company blaming the other and taking zero responsibility for their sho...rt comings and poor communication skills. Will avoid ANC and pottery barn like the plague in future. Children who have completed grade 5 education would be more skilled than these adults at reviewing the problem and making a plan moving forwards. Kate
They don't listen or read emails
Pottery Barn are great! But ANC can't read directions. They sent my delivery to the wrong address. ANC never read their emails or updates. I spoke to a female the day before delivery. She assured me that she has written the correct address of delivery and there will be no problem. I had little faith and sent a email in the morning to ANC and a text message reply to their notification text. Was forced to report it to Pottery Barn once again. Pottery Barn will contact them as they can't understand why ANC didn't update the information for the dri...ver. Address was updated on the 18th February 2022. It was plenty of time for ANC to update the address change. Hopefully the next reshudule delivery will be correct address without complications. Pottery Barn should cancel ANC.
Absolutely woeful. Call centre in Phillipines just hangs up. Samsung goods missing. Beware.
First delivery did not arrive despite a call the day prior. When I called Samsung they told me they could not help because the item had been dispatched. Samsung would not provide the name of the courier or a tracking number. The tracking function on the Samsung Website does not function and I spent hours on hold with Samsung only to be hung up on multiple times.
I emailed the online support team at Samsung per instructions on the website and was supposed to have a response within 24 hours. Three weeks later, I’m still waiting. I finally got th...rough to Samsung and was told the shipper was DB Schenker and that the problem was theirs. I was not given a tracking number or consignment number and had to identify myself by phone number and email address. They told me the delivery was outsourced to ANC so I called their call centre based offshore. I was continually fobbed off and told the delivery was pushed back. On the third time this occurred I asked why and they told me a driver tried to call but couldn’t get through. I asked if the driver left a message, what time this call was made and by whom. They could not answer this and when pressed, they admitted this had not occurred. Incompetence bordering on criminal.
Worst service ever; totally unreliable
ANC were supposed to pick up a mirror for return to West Elm. Pickup was cancelled without notice on three separate occasions, after I had come home from work each time especially to be there. I spent hours on the phone with ANC and West Elm trying to reschedule. I have never had such a frustrating and dissatisfying experience with any other purchase or delivery company. Avoid at all costs!
