Low quality Oztrail shade awning and Poor customer experience
*******I would never recommend anyone to buy products from Snowys due to the poor customer service. Their team won't reply you for weeks but they will response the online review within a day. I have lodged a complain to Australia Consumer and Business Services as suggested by ACCC *******
I bought Oztrail RV shade awning on 02 October 2020. I found a small hole on the awning when I first tested it. 22 January 2021 the awning was broke during the second time use. The broadcast showed that It's a beautiful day with mild wind 2 to 13 km/h. I con...tacted with the after sales service and representor told me that Oztrail could not repair as the required part was out of stock. I wait and wait. 4 months later, June 16, I contact Snowys again. Unfortunately there is still no response

Great… when they deliver
I have purchased multiple orders through snows in store and online. Typically I have found them great, however I had an order sit on backlog for 10 months before being cancelled. If a product is not available then don’t take payment for it.

Buyers beware - Unreliable shipping with Poor customer experience
When I called their customer service about my order with “fast delivery in 1-2 business days” to find out whereabouts 3 days later when not delivered and nil tracking status, was basically told bad luck, no refund/cancellation and it’s my fault. Very, very surprised by this poor level of service.
Shipping option at checkout clearly states “Fast delivery (1-2 Business days)”. When my goods still hadn’t arrived after 3 days and a search of the Toll tracking number showed the item still not left their warehouse, something was not right.
Snowys ...customer service agreed it wasn’t right and then put me on hold to investigate with Toll. Less than a minute later, I was then told item will be delayed. This was surprising since I have received online packages interstate bought on the same day from small ebay sellers and large online companies, none of which I needed to pay express shipping for either. I asked for a refund since goods haven’t even left and shipping not what I expected. I was then told rather condescendingly, “sorry mate the item has been dispatched”. I said it hasn’t been shipped since the tracking number shows the item created but not even left, which they agreed.
Take order and payment, then no goods for 2 months
Placed an order, item showed as in stock. Paid, then 4 days later I received notification my goods won't be available for over 2 months. I would not have ordered if I knew this. Poor form to do this.
Order never received
Buyer beware. I never received my order, the responses from Snowy's have been delayed woeful to my trying to find out where my product was, and now they are just saying bad luck. Very poor. I see other people have experienced this. Will be going to consumer affairs next.
Excellent service, good prices...couldn't use online portal with an iMac
The web site wouldn't let me checkout on my iMac. Tried the iPad..nope. Seems there online shop isn't liking Mac Safari. So had to use wives Chrome or whatever on her iMac. Worked great. This little speed bump wouldn't stop me from buying again. Although it was annoying as I buy heaps using this browser. I like the fact they post videos of the more popular products.
Failed to put address on urgent parcel
Placed a $700 order with snowys and noted the order was urgent and needed it within a couple of weeks. I also phoned them after placing the order to ensure they got the order out quickly. The order was sent with Toll. Delivery was late by a day so I phoned Toll on Thursday in which they were completely useless but after spending over an hour on the phone with them I was told Snowys failed to put the address on the parcel which is why it failed to meet delivery on the Wednesday and Thursday. If I had not phoned and spent all that time on the pho...ne the parcel would have been left at the depot for several days and fail to meet my delivery time requirement. I sent Snowys an email several days ago complaining but they have not bothered to respond to it.
Check courier reviews
I found good reviews online so I tried ordering from Snowys however they seem to use Toll as courier which has really bad reviews online. I received a tracking number and it said already delivered per courier’s tracking but I did not get my items yet or a missed delivery card or even a knock from my door. I’m hoping they can help me track it. Order number is 559488.
I just received my parcel today and not as what the tracking said that it was already delivered yesterday, seems like the courier's tracking has issues. Although I already received it, 1 item was missing from my order so I will inform customer service.
So angry! They say they will send your order in 2-3 days. Well I put my order in Thursday early afternoon expecting to have it on Tuesday. Latest Wednesday! It is now Friday and still have not received it. It was for my daughters birthday I spent $500 I am so frustrated! I will not spend A cent with Snowys outdoor again. Thanks for nothing. Also said they would contact me to let me know what was going on and nothing
I purchased 4 items from here and 5 arrived. I wasn’t advised in anyway that they had run out of stock they sent 4 assuming I wouldn’t notice. Never again.
Good online store- they use Toll IPEC which is a nightmare.
Nothing against the online store but using toll ipec delivery for a few little items is ridiculous. Especially when they are so difficult to deal with. They attempted to deliver my package when I was home to a side entrance that was not clearly accessible and obviously didn’t knock loud enough, and then left the note that the item is going back to the depot 1.5 hours away. I call them and they say they will deliver tomorrow so be home (again) between 9-5. I tell them to put a note for the driver- go to the front door. Wouldn’t you know it- they...don’t turn up. Another day wasted. Call them and they say Snowys won’t allow the redelivery and I have to go pick up at the depot 1.5 hours away. I understand there would be another cost associated with that but Toll stuffed it up to begin with. I let them know how disappointed i am- and the operator says they can deliver to the local news agency instead. Why didn’t they just do this the first time??? You might think this should be on tolls site- but snowys chooses to go through a crap courier company and need to hold them accountable.
Delivery company didn't deliver
The courier company did not try deliver the goods and instead left it at an unauthorized location which is open only during business hours, meaning I am unable to collect the items.
Fast delivery is not what I got.
Read the reviews, felt that I could trust the company. Service is not that bad, people are nice.
I ordered black wolf Turbo 240 x lf on Wednesday 28/08. According to the fast delivery (1-2 business days, which is mentioned on the website), I should have received the product by Friday max, instead, I don't get any call or email and I had to follow up with the courier company to find out if the delivery was even getting done on that day, and I received the item on Monday and had to waste another day as the courier company wouldn't give an ETA. ...On the top of that, when I called Snowys to ask them to sort out or to do something about it, they said, "it sometimes takes up to 5 business days to get delivered, it's mentioned in your email", I told the rep that it's not as can be seen clearly in the picture. To which she agreed later, and said there wouldn't be anything they could do (they did apologised tho). All I'm saying is that it is misleading for the customer to rely on the 1-2 days fast delivery, as sometimes people make plans accordingly and they get affected due to such things. Last but not the least, I popped in Anaconda today and found out they could have beaten the price by 10% and I could have picked it up straight away. All in all, if one makes any promises they should be met given such a big name. Disappointed.

MY ORDER TOURED HALF THE COUNTRY FOR 13 DAYS...STILL NOT DELIVERED!
My order has traveled from Adelaide to Perth then over to Melbourne and still no sign of being delivered...the destination is Tasmania. The trip so far has taken 13 days. Part of the order was delivered on time. I should have bought all the items from China because with SpeedPak they would have been delivered within 10 days, usually 8 days in my experience. I won't buy from Snowys again, I won't risk losing my goods and money.
Didn't receive item
Ordered & paid for a caravan clothes line, we are in regional Victoria. It wasn't delivered! Contacted Snowys who said they would take care of it with the delivery company, who claimed to have delivered it, but we were home all day & it wasn't delivered. Snowys said there was nothing more that could do.
Questions & Answers
We recently purchase a 200 watt croc skin armour solar panels , and noticed that it only comes with a 15 amp regulator ,when 200 watts =16.67 amps will the 15 amp regulator handle the extra amperage?cheers, Tony
200W only equals 16.67A at 12v.
These panels are 18v, so the max output is 11.11A.
Hope that helps!
Greetings. I recently purchase a replacement dimmer for my yellow/white light setup. The new dimmer has got a different yellow connector (key locks)from my previous one and so doesn't connect up with the the 2 light bars through the Y connector piece. Please advise.
I assume you are referring to the Korr Camp Light Kits here Bwana?
If so, then as far as I am aware the fittings have always been the same. If you are still having problems here I'd suggest sending some photos of the fittings to email@example.com, we'll be in a better position to provide advice.
I bought the Coleman eventemp 3 burner stove. I want to use It with normal swap ‘n’ go gas bottle from garage. Do I need an adapter? If so, which type? There are so many to choose from.
Hi Di, assuming you are connecting to the 9Kg Swap and Go bottles which have a POL fitting, you'll you would need is one of these hoses - https://www.snowys.com.au/gas-hose-colemanbomunef-to-pol.
You need to keep the regulator attached to the stove and connect the hose to the regulator, then you can attach the other end of the hose to the gas bottle.
I hope that helps.
