We were shopping for a TV and as we live rural online is the go.  We looked at a number of models and sites ending up at JB Hi-Fi.  I ordered and used my credit card, a day later I received an email informing me they needed address confirmation in the form on a bill or similar.  I thought was great security but ended up a pain as council changed our road numbering to fire numbers... one thing I had with my address was a bank statement showing our investment account but they wanted a full page scan and I was unwilling to send too much financial info to them, back to the start second thing I had still has old numbering..   bugger.  Cancelled order - back tot he start.

Called Wellington branch but the model we wanted was not in stock - ok no special trip required.

Ordered with my wife's details as we have a power bill with her name and our new numbering, all good I thought.  Bugger I had only sent the image with 3/4 of the page, I had not included the bottom empty space.  Send again with full page.  Wait, Wait, Wait - email to ask if what I sent was enough... "No we did not receive anything further"  forwarded original messages with images and Wait, Wait, Wait  - email to ask if what I sent was enough and no response, today I sent to them "Feels like the piss is being taken - please escalate to someone who gives a toss about service"

Am I alone in the lack of service?  This second attempt has taken 8 days and the first was I think was around 5.

We may have to arrange a trip into town and see what is available in person :)  Apologies for the rant!

Go into town and buy in person...
They probably don't want to pay the freight cost.

Scratch that, go into town and buy from someone else.

Also if you are looking at a Sony their website will price match.

Quick update - after my last "polite" email my wife had a call saying that the issue is their systems being run out of Oz but they will dispatch our order today :) Price was right but even then I would have expected a little more customer service.

Thanks for the feedback provided

cheers

Yeah, would never ever buy anything large ticket from them Online.



After getting dicked around with CDs - delays, no updates, no response to emails.

My local store (Westgate) were SUPER helpful on the phone putting stuff aside and helping with pick up. Plus if anything goes wrong it's easier to return.
