Problem with my order, can't get in touch with customer rep.

by Jl2002_jk » Jul 12th, '05, 15:10

Hi!
I got my order today , but it is incomplete.
I placed an order yesterday #132980 with second day delivery for trinitea and some teas, but I only got a tea maker today.
It was purchased as a birthday present for my husband.
I left a message and I have sent an email, but nobody got back so far, the live help is unavailable.
Were my tea packs shipped separately ? Do you have a tracking info for it ?
Please get back to me at your earliest convenience.

Sorry about the delay in responding to your email. We have been displaying at the New York Fancy Food show for the last three days. I can probably guess as to what happened. Although you selected second day delivery for your order, we ship the triniTEA via ground. Since you are located so close, it was actually delivered the very next day. You should be receiving your teas tomorrow.

In the future, I would suggest choosing ground delivery instead of second day. You will save a few bucks on shipping, and more often than not, receive your order faster.

Problem with order

by Guest » Jul 12th, '05, 23:00

Ilya,
thank you for getting back to me, I was kind of worried.
Anyway, I'm not sure that is what happened. As I see from tracking information, it was sent second day delivery service.
I even checked the label on the box to make sure that there weren't any more packages to be delivered and it says:" Packages 1 of 1" on it. Why wouldn't everything be sent at the same time ?
I went to my account and it only have one tracking number for the tea maker that was delivered today.
I didn't know that you guys were kind of local to me and I wanted to make sure that I will get it by Thursday before my husband's birthday , so I paid for 2nd day delivery.
Please , research this matter and get back with information to me at your earliest convenience.
Regards,
Mary

Chris,
this was not a note.
This was a desperate attempt to get in touch with customer service, that I wasn't able to do by the email that you have mentioned, phone or live assistance, since it was either unavailable or not functioning.
This issue needed some kind of resolution ASAP.
I finally got an email today, saying that rest of my order was shipped by priority USPS and there is no tracking.
Why did this happened ?
Why was I charged for Fedex 2nd day and my items were shipped USPS ?
USPS does not guarantee that you will get your shipment within 2 days, no matter how close you are, it is 1-3 days for priority items and also, there is a tracking for it if you pay for that.
I definitely will need a refund for my shipping charges.
I'm not sure about your tea products, since I didn't get it yet, but the customer service is definitely not on the level.
Mary

Mary--

Thanks for the reply.

If you look on the triniTEA page, it states, "available only via Ground shipping in continental US." The reason for this is that second day shipping (which you chose regardless) costs us about $20, whereas we only charge you $7.75. Because of the size of the triniTEA, it must be shipped individually, so we cannot combine the device and other products into one box.

Therefore, our shipping dept. probably decided that it would be prudent to ship only this most valued product (the triniTEA) with the quickest shipping available (got there the very next day, i believe) and ship the additional items via a regular ground shipping method.

As Ilya mentioned, we were all away at an expo, so only had a very limited ability to answer customer service emails. In the future, please know that we do indeed greatly value your loyalty and strive to answer your inquiry as soon as we possibly can. One day (12 hours, even!) is a very reasonable amount of time to answer emails -- You waited only 4 hours before posting this customer service inquiry on our (non-customer service) bulletin board. In other words, your patience is greatly appreciated. :D

A full staff is back in the office, so if you'd like to continue this conversation, please email our customer service center at info@adagio.com or come on LiveChat.

Many thanks again,

Chris

adagio is the most responsive and personal customer support i have ever experienced with an online retailer. Never having to be on hold is a remarkable accomplishment these days. Being able to talk to people over AIM to get instant answers is wonderful. kudos to you, adagio.

Awww.... thanks, LadyArden!

Reading your post made me feel all warm and fuzzy. Wait-- i just spilled tea on myself, make that warm and searing. I don't know how that happened, but I've got an idea it has something to do with Ilya and Petit Threes.

We really do work very hard on having the best customer service, so your fan mail is always appreciated. Plus, the customer service dept. usually only gets complaints (they've got to be happy people!), so praise is welcome (and well-deserved).

Burning,
