Terrible Communication and No Accountability
ANC cancelled the first delivery with no contact whatsoever. I only found out through proactively checking the status page. The reason "Not Handed Over". When I contacted ANC they said the error message means there was no stock at the suppliers warehouse. They then told ME to contact the supplier to inform them and to reschedule a delivery. I indicated that logistics and supply issues are for the supplier and delivery partner to resolve, not the customer. I was basically fobbed off by ANC as it not being their issue to resolve.
The second deli...very they gave 30 minutes notice that they were arriving 6 hours before the scheduled window. We had someone home fortunately, but I was out. They also tried to deliver to next door, but luckily we managed to catch them. Despite ordering standard delivery AND installation, ANC said they don't do installations and basically dumped the delivery and took off. Leaving us with a massive box to work with. They did say "maybe someone else will come and do the install bit". If you're ordering something online, and the delivery partner is ANC, find another store to purchase from.
WORST SERVICE EVER!!!!
The WORST ever company I've ever had to deal with, in my entire life. Had placed a booking through IKEA for hefty stuff. The drivers were extremely misbehaved - were entering the part of the house they absolutely didn't need to or have the right to, touching our walls and placing marks, and they put all the stuff in the house, took a picture for IKEA and then conveniently chose to take back our armchair box back and put it back in the truck because we had requested to put it upstairs. IKEA had clearly told us when we placed the order that they ...will drop the stuff where we request and eventually where we'd install. So if you're not going to do it, why take a picture and then take the box back when the discussion happened prior (as soon as they arrived) for dropping it upstairs. The delivery guys tried to act oversmart on multiple occasions (tried taking more boxes back in the truck after taking a picture and we had to stop and argue with two very unprofessional and horrid delivery people I've ever met) and spent over 25 mins because of all this nonsense. I have everything on security cam recording which is a relief but it's just a ton of nonsense to deal with for merely a delivery. To top it all, he has conveniently marked the order as delivered when he's taken our armchair back. And now I've been on hold with IKEA for over 65 mins. Kill me already!
Absolutely terrible. Left with my delivery
They left without unloading my delivery. Both me and my partner was there outside and they found excuses then drove off without even saying anything.
Didn’t respond to phone calls.
I paid extra for express delivery. It was a very important delivery.
Wish I could give zero stars...
Drivers installed a fridge with a dent in it into my new house when they clearly saw it and should have taken it back. Told me to contact Good Guys instead and didn't take it back. They also dented a hole into the wall of my house I just got handover for. I rang Good Guys to give me a replacement fridge the next day and they said to wait 8am-11am so I skipped a second day of work. Driver didn't show up so I called ANC and they said they couldn't contact the driver and will call me back, which ANC never did. So I called Good Guys a couple hours ...later and they said they would send their own men who eneded up coming and dropped off a fridge in a box and didn't want to install it because they didn't want to touch the old fridge and wouldn't pick it up... Told them to take it all back and give me a refund and no response... Terrible service. I don't understand why anyone would choose ANC and I would never shop at the Good Guys again. It's funny how ANC say "professional drivers" on their slogan. Do yourself a favour and hire your own trailer for less cost and to save your time, rather than waiting on unreliable drivers.

We only found out that our package had been delivered when we found it in the garden where it had been thrown over the front fence and left to lie firstly in the very hot sun and then in the thunderstorm that blew up. It seemed obvious that the driver hadn't even bothered to park, get out of the van and do a very short walk to our front porch to leave the parcel under cover. I have complained to the business we ordered from and have asked them to never get ANC to deliver things to us again. If I could give ANC less than 1 star I would.
Why does Bunnings use such a terrible business?
Sat.delivery arrived with broken timber. Bunnings booked a replacement for the next day(Sunday). Bunnings Manager promised its delivery. Called Bunnings store at 1630 Saturday. It's seems ANC cancelled the delivery AND didn't inform Bunnings. Rebooked for Monday. But the job number sent to me can't be checked as the ANC tracking page is NOT working. Why does Bunnings use such an incompetent business? It just reflects back poorly on Bunnings. Surely Bunnings can afford to spend the dollars on a more reliable courier business. DO NOT USE THIS BUSINESS EVER!!
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.
I ordered some wood ply from Bunnings and these guys delivered it wet in condition, I asked the driver and he not not helpful and said this is how it is delivered also few items I had to took off my self from truck. He was rude and behaving like he is doing a favour by delivering it to me.
