Extremely slow shipping, selling parts they do not have! Poor customer service
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
Absolutely disgusting customer service
Over the 2 days I have sent several emails tried calling 1300 number which even has a message stating they will not answer the calls and to send emails. Tried messaging on thier Facebook site. No reply from anybody. Lodging for refund from PayPal. No customer service what's so ever.
3 days delivery or 3 weeks??
It all starts when I was looking to purchase some oil filters. Air filters. Cabin filters and globes for my fleet of cars. I was originally was going to Repco but the prices seem alright and shipping in 3 business days. Perfect it's Sunday night the 5th September and I'll have what I need by the weekend. All items I purchased are in stock and all say delivery will be 3 days. I get the confirmation email and the email now says deliver in 3-6 days. After 6 days I jump online and check my tracker to see where my items are update. Still to be sent...??by this time I still had no emails or updates about my order from sparesbox. So I send an email off to them asking about my order. 2 days later I get a reply. Sorry your order won't be dispatched until the 17th of September.......... That is false advertising. People save yourself the time and go to Repco or another car shop. For the savings of $10 bucks it's not worth 3 weeks wait and the inconvenience. I just decided to order my bits from Repco and get what I needed. Was dropped off the same day!
Received the incorrect parts after waiting over 4 weeks for shipping. Attempted to return the product and have had no communication whatsoever, I've sent the product back as required, and have since been left in the dark with my money in their account.
Avoid this business.
Delays and wrong stock info
After 5 days my order hadn't been despatched. When I contacted them they told me that the handling time was 10 days! When I ordered the website stated it was in stock. I asked if they actually had my item in stock as I knew the supplier was out of stock - and guess what - they were ordering it from the supplier. So they lied about their stock levels.
Can't get my stuff.
I ordered my stuff three weeks ago and my order still haven't left the warehouse. Try to avoid this website as much as possible.
Expensive O ring
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
Buy from them if you don't mind waiting weeks for your package regardless of your location with Australia
They have let me down multiple times, I don't think I ever buy from them again. Only buy from them if you absolutely have to.
Very very disappointing
Very very disappointing item has been processing for 5 days they blame COVID yet I’ve ordered from the same area and received in 2 days. Pathetic.
Is this a scam?
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.
Terrible support and communication, they care nothing once they have you money. DO NOT BUY HERE!!!
Terrible support and communication. Zero care for the customer once they have your money. Ordered roughly $900 of parts. The listing stated that the parts would suit my car (injectors for an LS3 motor) along with ignition leads and spark plugs. The injectors were wrong (even though the listing stated they were right) and the ignition leads were not even the ones ordered. Terrible communication. No phone support, no live chat support. Only email which takes days to rely. NEVER BUYING HERE AGAIN!!!!
Can't put zero star rating
Item out of stock but advertised as in stock, took 10 days to inform me of this.Bloody dodgy outfit, poor communication and service, typical pass the buck excuses used. I'm over all of this dishonest conning rubbish!!!.
I ordered a clutch and then noticed the item would never ship though prior to buying the item Spares box confirmed the item is in stock.I have tried to contact them 3 times
and not a single response.I am fearing the worst and that I will have blown a lot of money.
they sent out fake parts that dont work
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
don't waste your money
false advertising. item was not shipped in 24 hours. 3 weeks later still no update on items. 3 emails later still no response. avoid take your money elsewhere
Questions & Answers
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
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
