Extremely slow shipping, selling parts they do not have! Poor customer service

published

Slowest service! Parts ordered were showing as available for delivery in 5 days. Was told a number of excuses as to why that had not been shipped, only to get the real answer 4 weeks later that they do not actually have stock and cannot get stock. An additional 2 weeks past and still waiting on “in stock” parts to just be shipped. Definitely do not use if you need parts quickly!!!! Customer service very poor

Tried to buy O ring for my ford courier distributor, $7.90 for O ring and $10 for postage. It weighs nothing. Scam. Will never buy off you again and don't recommend

Is this a scam?

published

Placed an order last week and paid via credit card. Did not receive any order number or follow up confirmation from Sparesbox.
Sent an email to them 5 days later only to be advised that I had to provide a confirmation code from my banks payment reference number to prove that my transaction wasn't fraudulent. This is after they have taken my money!
Have cancelled the order, if it ever existed, and reported the transaction as a scam.

they sent out fake parts that dont work

published

I bought parts that were listed as " OEM " but when I recieved them they were no name parts with a gold OEM sticker on them. after installing one of the sensors it did not work at all. the 2nd sensor i bought was missing the wiring that was meant to be with it so it wouldnt work with my vehicle at all.
i had to then go buy the genuine sensors from another source. car was off the road for 14 days
I did start a paypal dispute and try contact them but 2 weeks later i have heard nothing from them.
TIP to anyone buying parts from them, buy genuine parts from the right places

Terrible all round, always out of stock and poor customer service

published

I ordered 3 items (2 to save shipping). I received 1 item a couple days later than the expected wait time.

I received an email questioning availability of a second product I ordered and told it was not available.
I didn't see that email until over a week after it landed in my junk folder (no customer follow up with a phone call).
I replied to the email and questioned the 3rd item and then was ignored.

Its almost been 1 full month since the order and the main part I wanted is still not in and I am not getting replies from the customer service email direct or online enquiry. There is no phone number to call.

Useless - go buy your products elsewhere...

Why can you not commit to an order made or delivery date or reply to email requests searching for what we have already paid for??

Sparesbox is an Australian owned company that sell a lot of product online. Lately there's been a lot of bad publicity about the service that you provide. My understanding of the situation is mainly the delivery time and services that you are offering to your loyal customer. Customers place an order with yous and it's taken much longer than expected to be delivered to the customer.

Sparesbox why do you use a foreign courier company such as Couriersplease that has a very poor and
unreliable reputation worldwide?

Why do you not support an Australian owned companies to deliver customers order such as Australia Post for example?

Is it not Australian citizens that supports you?

Then is it not fare that you give some support back to those who are supporting you?

Covid 19 has impact the live of so many people in Australia and all over the world as well. Everyday Australian are trying to support business like yours. It p!!!!!! me off when good business get a bad name because of bad conduct of others

Regards

Terry

Terry, the issue appears to be largely in part of advertising products that they don't have in stock. Hence why items aren't being shipped on time - because they don't have them to send.
This practice is unlawful under Australian Consumer Law - to advertise a product you do not have and can not supply in the time specified (such as their eBay listings).
If Covod was the issue, as I am aware this has been claimed at times, then the item would be at least sent and then delayed in shipping, and that would show. But the fact items aren't leaving the building before the dates they are meant to be in the customer's hands is clearly nil stock.

John, I do agree with you in part about them not having items in stock to ship, I understand them running out of stock from time to time and that they still advertising those items as being still in stock. It's wrong and I agree with you in that regard . Stock control is an issue with them without a doubt, they need to update their website more often then what they do. They also need to use a more reliable Courier Companies to deliver to their customers. Since the start of covid many companies are having supply issues
