I ordered a few car parts online on Sunday. There was a huge 60% discount, so after picking up the small bits from the shop, decided to go home and order the main item - a lower wishbone.
All was going so well: £80 discount; delivery by 10am Tuesday 6/6; garage slot booked for Wednesday/Thursday.
I called at the shop today and even though I had a printed e-mail saying I could pick the part up yesterday, after 10am, it wasn't anywhere near the shop, or it's warehouse. And wouldn't be for a few days.
Given the fact that this was an hour before my arranged garage slot, I wasn't happy.
Luckily, the mechanic can order me a part for not much more money, but it now means I'm without a car for 2 or 3 days.
EUROCARPARTS: If you are going to let a customer down, then at least give them a bit more notice than when they turn up at the shop for collection!
(It would also help if I didn't have to wait at the counter for 45 minutes at the weekend, for a bulb and a wiper blade)
