    thebedshop.com (based in Liverpool) - please help .. 19th Mar 09 at 3:54 PM
    At the moment I am so frustrated and angry, we ordered our little 5 year old's bed five weeks ago today.
    Making a long story very short (very very short), we are still yet to receive this 815.00 bed.
    We were promised delivery within 6 working days on 4th March (all e mails) but still nothing.
    I have got to the point now where my partner has been asking as this is now all too much.
    Has anyone had any problems with this company or are we just unlucky?
    I do not wish to bore you all with all the details but if you want to I can!!

    Although you have ordered it, have you paid for it?
    Well aint funny how its the little things in life that mean the most? Not where you live, the car you drive or the price tag on your clothes.
    Theres no dollar sign on piece of mind
    This Ive come to know...
    So if you agree have a drink with me, raise your glasses for a toast

    Hello! The orignal reason was that they had no one in our area to deliver! They are in Liverpool and we are in Essex.
    They said that they had no one in our area but when I checked with the bed manufacturer, they told me that 4 weeks after I had placed and paid for the order that they had not had clearance from The Bed Shop and that the order had always been in stock. The Bed Shop website stated delviery between 24 hours and 14 days if in stock.
    We have been promised a call from the carriers for the last two weeks and still nothing. Aparently they are now going to delviery on Weds 25/03 but to wait for a call.
    I doubt if this call will happen and to be honest, I don't care anymore as it is now getting beyond a joke!
    I have never dealt with such a bunch of cowboys, both myself and my partner work in the transport, distribution and logistics industry and have never come across such an unprofessional company.
    You can not phone them as this is only their sales line, you can only e mail, when you e mail they will only answer the ones they want.
    I have contacted Trading Standards as well but all I want is this bed for our five year old (and it is a very nice bed aswell). I know when we eventually receive it (if we do) that it will probably be damaged or wrong ........ this has totally put me off internet shopping as I will never shop anywhere other than big know brand names again.
