Pursuing Legal Action
In June 2012 [name removed] from Goldfit agreed to sell a high line treadmill of mine. After back and forth emails [name removed] kept dropping the agreed sale price. It is now march 2013 and [name removed] advises me that he sold the treadmill in Dec 2012 for half of the agreed selling price. All of my emails and phone calls have been ignored and he states he has sold it and in email and over the phone as told me repeatedly he has transferred the money and still nothing. And I have no treadmill, no money, the police advise me it is a civil ma...tter. [name removed] refuses to send me proof of transfer or receipt for the actual amount the treadmill was sold for. Now I to put in a small claim I'm in need of [name removed]'s last name to put through a small claim in the local courts. Please can any one help me who has dealt with [name removed] before? Finding it hard to trace his Surname through phone number or the registered business. cheers :)
Delivered the bike on time but when it came to pick it up I had to chase them for weeks. We had every excuse under the sun. When they did finally pick it up they were meant to give us our deposit in the fom of a cheque which they didn't have and said they would then post it. This was in January! We have rang and emailed but just get" it's in the mail". This company and I use the loosley has taken up way to much of my time and money and I will be going to the department of fair trading to resolve this.
Untrustworthy, bad service, dodgy
Worst company ever
These guys were unprofessional, rude and down right unsympathetic. I hired a treadmill, and i had it for a couple of weeks. The product itself looks so run down and old that it's lucky it worked. After using it for a week or two i explained to them that my legs were hurting from the constant strain on my calves and joints, i asked them to swap it for something that would allow me to burn more calories with less strain on my body.
They suggested a spin bike. After all the ok reviews i had read about spin bikes, i decided to give it a go. The...y brought me a spin bike that is too big for my frame, telling me "that is standard size" i am unable to use it, so i requested them to pick it up, and take it back and issue me 1 month refund (as i paid for 2 months plus $100 deposit, which i was unaware about until they requested my bank transfer) now they are refusing to give me 1 month refund, telling me i can either keep the item that is unfit for use because i am only 4'9" - or to return it and get my $100 deposit back. - what about the month that they're taking it back - i paid $115 for nothing per month just so they can give me something i can't use, and they take it back. If you want my advice, stay far far away. Go buy a sauna blanket like i did, and sweat out hundreds more calories than throwing $115 to the wind liek i did with this crowd. Oh and the best bit - i have to return the bike before i get any money back, and they will be doing it by bank transfer. I do not trust it, and i think i'll be lucky to get anything back at all. I'm considering keeping the bike, because i won't get my money from them! Unreliable, expensive,unprofessional.

Questions & Answers
Did anyone eventually have their machines picked up ? If not what did you do with the machines? (As they won't pick mine up going on to 8months)
Did they ever pick yours up? I'm struggling to get them to after about 5 months, I am moving and told them it will be going out on the kerb if they don't pick up but that i still expect my deposit back! Can't believe this is their normal practice....
I wish I had seen all these reviews first!
Did u sign a contract?
They work to their own schedule. Whatever they tell you on the phone will not represent what actually happens, both in terms of pickup timing and any deposit or refund your expecting. In short, they will take ages to pickup and don't expect to get any money passing back from them.
