Purchased Shiraz got wrong year
Advert clearly showed 2015 vintage of Beresford Shiraz but got sent 2018. Turned out I Could have bought the 2015 vintage for slightly less at the local bottle shop! Don’t think I’d bother dealing with Booze Bud again. 2018 was ok but I didn’t order that!
Service could be better
Made a large order today which qualifies for same day delivery between 6pm and 9pm. Driver did not ring door bell, knock on door or leave missed delivery slip.
Needs more reliability
I was hesitant to give BoozeBud a go due to reviews about delivery issues and poor customer service. However due to the company being sold back to the original founders & new marketing campaigns, I decided to give it a try.
The prices were reasonable - quite good in comparison to other sites. Delivery timeframe was short & accurate. However the biggest problem was that the delivery was left unattended. I had specifically chosen the option for an ATTENDED delivery; this also goes hand in hand with BoozeBud’s policy that was listed under the pr...oduct description - that ID and the card used for purchase had to be sighted upon delivery. However I came home to the delivery left on the doorstep - $1500 worth of product just sitting there. Extremely poor & risky service.
A rocky start
I placed an order through the app, easy to use and navigate, order arrived on time, the only gripe I have is I 4 relatively expensive items for a gift and only half of them showed up. The customer service was good but still not happy about the fact I was missing items
It took exactly 14 days to deliver my first order even though I live in metropolitan area in Melbourne. Communication is good and I love the app. However, delivery time is bothering me.
unreliable delivery and slow customer support
Ordered 2 cartons and selected same day delivery, it’s now the next afternoon and I still haven’t received an eta or shipping info, there is no customer phone number and email responses are slow will just go to the bottle shop next time.
Don't expect it anytime soon.
Pretty good range of products, some prices cheap some were pretty average. Ordered a carton of beer and am still waiting for it 8 days later. Next time will just go to the local.
Well done boozebud
I was a bit apprehensive in ordering through you guys after reading your reviews but not now my order came a couple of days late but with aus post being swamped again well done
Typically great, lately not so
I've never had any issues with Boozebud prior in fact they've always been excellent. My latest order however has been pending delivery for a week, with Auspost unable to update me
After a lot of troubles BoozeBud solved all the issues.
I received everything I order and the prices are very good.
If BozzeBud will improve the order management and the delivery delays (I recon due also to the COVID-19 issue at moment) you will be a 5 star service!
Hit and miss
The first order was short shipped. Was given a credit which was nice by Cust service. The second shipment arrived OK, although getting emailed about a discount deal while my order in transit is extremely disappointing.
good service at a reasonable price - delivery was quick with no problems at all...
good beer would def recommend them to others as compared to uncle dan . go for it... awesome
Good but not perfect
Received my beer and wine as described and on time, however I do live in a metropolitan area. I did contact the customer service team via email and they responded promptly to my queries but couldn't guarantee my delivery would arrive in time for NYE even though I had ordered it a week before. If you're in no rush to receive your drinks this this is the way to go. Delivery didn't require signature so you do run the risk of your boxes being stolen from your doorstep and there is no option when paying for a signature on delivery. Postage price was reasonable also.
My order sent to wrong address and item is missing
Update: boozebud responded and rectified the problem. So upgraded to 3 stars.
My order was sent to wrong address. Luckily the receiver gave us a ring. We tried to ring startrack, they are useless.
End up having to pick up these items myself.
To add to the problem, my item is missing from the box.
Ordered a case of Waltzin Ma Pilsner which arrived a couple of days after ordering. The problem was only half of my order arrived. The only way to contact them is through a live chat which seems a bit odd. In contrast to some of the other reviews when I was contacted, Harry was very helpful, apologised for the problem, refunded me for the beer which did not arrive and provided a $30 credit.
I was happy enough with how I was treated and would just recommend that an email and phone number be added to make contact easier.
I will purchase again through Booze Bud.
Questions & Answers
Why does Booze Bud take so long to deliver? I placed an order on the 19th and it still hasn't been picked up. Bad form...
