“No confirmation of the order. After days of it not arriving or contact from the company, I contacted them for status update. Told by them they needed the security code to take payment for the item before they could dispatch. I informed they they had already had the payment from my bank 15 days before. After they Checked their records talked to the sales team who said that the price and paid for was advertised incorrect and they now needed an additional payment from me of £40.00. Not thinking correctly at the time due to the surprise I paid the extra. I asked why nobody had contacted me and they said they had tried. When the phone number on their file was checked it was not my number. However, my email address was correct and I had not had any contact from them by this means either. After thinking it all over following the phone call the same day I didn't feel I had been treated professionally so called back to cancel the order but their office had just closed, so sent an email instruction to cancel and refund request. Next working day they phoned me back mid morning to say it had been dispatched and I would now have to pay a 25% restocking fee which I refused to do. The item has now arrived in packaging that was filthy with thick black dust on it. Disgusting experience.”

Please accept your apologies that you have not been happy with the processing of your order.
Our sales team had called you for an authorisation code as it had been flagged as requiring an authorisation code in the payment system. This is requested to protect you the customer from fraudulent card payments. It transpired after numerous voice mails and emails, the incorrect contact number was on the order that had been placed online. There had been a pricing discrepancy on the website and we did offer to see if there was another unit we could offer. The additional payment was taken and the order processed as agreed by yourself. These orders are picked within minutes of the order being sent to the suppliers and then dispatched to the local Hub for delivery in the next 3-5 working days. Due to this when we received the email requesting to cancel the order the unit had been dispatched. The suppliers charge a re-stocking fee and this is documented in the terms and conditions agreed to at the point of order. We did try to get this quashed as you had emailed on the Friday to cancel, however they were unable to as they are charged by the carriers. The order had already been sent to the Hub for dispatch. We have passed on to the suppliers the condition of the packaging so that we can avoid this in the future. Kind regards FFD Customer Service Team
