    Well well well. I'm having a real problem with Tesco "Indirect". Basically, ordered wine for my son's 21st - didn't arrive on time. Phoned Tesco, they said they'd tried to deliver but couldn't find the address! (They could have phoned ebay, amazon, debenhams, cath Kidston - they've all managed to find me) Tried to ring to cancel order - left hanging on phone for 20 mins and gave up. Order arrived 3 days too late, driver showed me the address he'd been given, it was incomplete, even tho i'd given full adress, directions and mobile number. Sent him away with the wine, complained on twitter, was promised a refund, only got one third of money back,(do they think every little helps?) now they don't answer phone or emails. Wouldn't use Tesco Direct again if they were the last store on earth. Where is my full refund I wonder? Utterly dissatisfied.

    Jamesp1, have you noticed your fullstop and shift keys are not working?

    Would be easier to read if you could get round that somehow.

    So you didn't actually cancel the order? Just rejected delivery. They are entitled to make a deduction to cover their direct costs of returning the goods to them. What amount have they not refunded?

    The payment would have been taken the same day the goods were to be delivered, not after the vehicle broke down.

    Send them a bank statement as they obviously cannot find the payment. Surely that would be one step closer to resolving it?

    Or look into the chargeback system most debit cards have to recover money.

    Im so fed up with tesco home deliveries cancelling my orders, this is 3rd time since mid december. But my bank account isnt re-credited for 4 working days!! so I have basically paid for shopping I dont have. No more I say! Its time now for this to be brought to the attention of people who supposedly run Tesco.Im sick of being fobbed off.

    It's the same with most places... DPA most places can only keep details on the account up to 6 weeks. Even the order dates will be taken off.

    I know it's a pain I've had two cancelled. But with mine they had system issues and a break down (not sure what yours was) . When I called up, they did point out the t&c we sign up to when clicking confirm order that anything out of theire control they can't garuntee the order.
    The payment I also found out is the actuall banks the refund is done straight away and it then takes 3-5 working days to go in to the bank (spoke to my bank and they confirmed )

    Hope you don't have any other problems x

    AND BREATH!!!!!!!!!
  • ellay864
    I've been lucky with my problems! Each time I've had my text it's confirmed I'd get my delivery in the first hour of the 2 hour slot I booked. On 3 occasions it came early - I was at home but working and had to break off teleconferences to take the delivery. I rung them about it, they refunded my delivery charge and gave me additional voucher to use off my next shop. They also did assure me that if I'd actually been out when the driver arrived early, he would have waited...not planning on putting that to the test if I can help it though!

    i work as a delivery driver for dot.com and we have the 2 hour del slots but we also have a time slot within the 2 hours . if early we are supposed to wait . personally i always wait and if im within time slot and theres no answer i will ring house phone and or mobile number but remember we have timed deliveries and cannot wait for long 5 mins after del was due would make us late for every other delivery after that.
    and for the driver who was 200 yards away it would not have killed him to walk with his barrow to do the delivery if he was stuck there broken down anyway .
    we drivers always get in in the neck for delivery problems even if they are sometimes of the customers making.you wouldnt believe some of the addresses and delivery notes customers put on their orders .
    there are bad drivers who make things hard and awkward for us good drivers .personally i have never missed a delivery unless customer wasnt in even when snow was down i managed all orders.
