Over a week later and we’re still waiting on our air conditioner.
Thankfully it’s been fairly cool recently. Oh wait a minute, it hasn’t! In fact, it’s been stinking hot and today it’s humid as well (although admittedly not as hot).
Here’s a brief timeline of events that may make you reconsider buying large items from eBay:
- February 13: Win bid and inquire about shipping costs.
- February 20: Finally get shipping costs and pay immediately.
- March 8: Unit still hasn’t arrived. Last possible day given 10 day maximum (3-4 days expected) shipping.
We probably wouldn’t so be irate if there weren’t such big delays in communication; 7 days to get a shipping price!? Plus, our recent e-mails have gone unanswered. Who knows what is going on…
Although almost unheard of on eBay*, we’re definitely giving negative feedback.
* Seriously, I’ve seen people give neutral feedback with comments like “sent to wrong address 2 weeks late”.
