How’s about this for service

Placed order with DABS at 18.20 on 21/09/04 normal 1-3 days delivery charge. Items delivered at 15.30 the following day 22/09/04
Well done DABS (and Parcelforce) now that’s how it should be

Placed a small value internet order yesterday at 16.35 with click here and ANC delivered it today at 09.15. The company normally charge for delivery of small orders, but this month there is free delivery on all orders.Should mention that the package would have travelled about 150 miles by normal road distance.If some companies can do it, why cannot others!.

Good point.

dabs and similar outlets have always been on the ball with regard to quick deliveries - the kickback is if there are any problems and you have to return an item or items, which can sometimes prove very frustrating.

Such rapid service seems to be routine with click here

Since posting the above, remembered I've had an e-mail from amazon.co.uk just before lunch regarding a product acquired from them some 18 months ago; my e-mail was sent late yesterday afternoon.

The product came with a two year guarantee, handy as it has now developed faults - amazon's reply provided instructions regarding returning the item and the maximum period it may take to replace it (5-7 working days).

It's not the first time I've had excellent service from amazon - an object lesson in after sales care that other companies would do well to emulate. Similar praise is extended to Crucial.
