"Purchased a Fender Classics 72 Custom Telecaster Pau Ferro at a competitive price from Rimmers Music. Purchased online on 29/05/18 and Delivered on 05/06/18. Therefore expected delivery from Fender Suppliers is approximately 7 days after ordering guitar from Rimmers Music, which was totally acceptable with myself. The guitar comes with a free gigbag and offer of free guitar setup, free online guitar lessons and free delivery.
Unfortunately when I first purchased guitar I used an overseas Visa card, and although payment transaction completed ok, a glitch in the Rimmers Music Sage Pay security system would not allow order to be completed due to providing a UK shipping address. My initial order was cancelled and payment refunded to Visa. However during the transaction process, I initially lost out to the sum of £33 for Visa and Sage pay transaction charges, although I am happy to say that following communications with Leif at Rimmers, I was offered a partial refund of £33 on my order, which I accepted and can confirm that I have received.
In general my communications experience with both Leif and Heather has been very good. (via both email and telephone). I probably made 4 to 5 Phone calls in total and never experienced any problems getting through to Leif. I did experience some delays in response to a couple of my emails, although in general the communications and level of customer service I received was very good.
In summary my online purchasing experience with Rimmers Music has been very good, although I am realistic in my expectations, and realise that not everything is next day delivery or service. I was willing to wait and can say it has been well worth the wait and I would have no hesitation recommending them to others that are willing to wait.🎸🎸👍"
"the service was first class from start to finish including the part amazon played in the process, delivery was good , have not opened keyboard yet as it is a Christmas present for my grandson although information given by staff in Edinburgh store made decision to purchase Yamaha easy"
"Online ordering was very easy and the item was dispatched very quickly. I was also kept well informed during the process so full marks so far. I’ve deducted a star because the keyboard was dispatched in its box with no additional wrapping. The keyboard is a Christmas present and the box was quite badly damaged in transit. I’m hopeful the keyboard itself is ok but haven’t opened it to check. A quick wrap round the box with bubble wrap would have made a big difference, would be relatively cheap to implement, and would protect relatively delicate items. Just a suggestion."
"Product arrived on time, but the product box was not covered at all, so good job I was in to receive the delivery myself, or my husband would have seen exactly what I’d bought him for Christmas!
Other than that, I am very happy with the service."
"Ordering my digital piano on line was very simple, I had a query after ordering so phoned Rimmers Music, they were EXTREMELY helpful and solved my problem. Polite, courteous and very helpful. Pisno was delivered on time and very well packed."
"What can I say brilliant service from Rimmers. Brought a keyboard sent out fast. Had a problem with touch screen they got in touch with manufacturers. They sent details on how to calibrate it. All done.great thanks to Headly 👍👍👍"
"Decided to get new keyboard and sale offered opportunity. I had a problem with the order process which they quickly resolved with a call to me and Item delivered next day. All in all quick and efficient."
"I would like to thank the Blackpool branch for going above the call of duty by helping me when my PA system packed up. As specially at this time of year when I needed it. Barry did a fantastic job of helping me when I was at a total loss. Thank you so much."
"Rimmers has restored my faith in online shopping for music goods after a disastrous episode last Christmas with a different supplier. Ordered three items, and was called to inform me that two were on their way but awaiting stock for the third. It is good to be kept in the loop ...thank you."
"I was very unhappy with the service. I had a session booked in London, on the basis of purchasing with next day guaranteed. Ordered on a Sunday, didn't arrive until Wednesday. Yes, the staff tried to call, but I was in meetings. Then I had an emailing saying it was going to be dispatched via Amazon. Truly disappointed."
This item should have been despatched Monday to arrive Tuesday ie exactly as stated on the website, orders ordered at weekends will be despatched on the Monday for delivery Tuesday (if in stock). Also, we cannot (and do not) 100% guarantee any delivery, no one can as sometimes drivers can make errors etc. This item was delivered on Wednesday. We informed the customer on the Monday morning ie the fastest possible opportunity, whereby the order could have been cancelled and they could have purchased elsewhere if they needed it on Tuesday. This would have been the earliest they could have got the item from anywhere in the UK (if it was in stock). The customer decided to continue with the order. My advice to this customer is to not leave things to the last minute and be a bit better organised if you have something that is important to do. We are sorry for the 24-hour delay, but we kept the customer fully informed so they had a choice. At Christmas time couriers can be very busy and there are delays occasionally as a result of this.
