Amazon

    Amazon SUCK! The last few weeks I’ve purchased a lot from Amazon, from Light Bulbs to Coffee Makers. My recent experience of them is, when they f*ck it up they really go all out!

    My last 4 Amazon Orders have been a total waste of time & effort.

    1 – DVD

    2 – LINX 1010B

    3 – Coffee & DVDs

    4 – Bluedio Ci3 (Camel) Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Sports Headphones Sweatproof Running Earbuds with Mic (Silver/Black)

    I’ve wasted enough time complaining to Amazon to convenience & simplicity of buying from Amazon is then wasted on their often pointless customer services.

    So today having put up with far more than is acceptable I tried to close my account. It should be noted he (The Amazon Support Guy) was happy to discuss the account having passed security. But closing the Account required my CARD NUMBER to be verified.

    UPDATE

    Amazon really do know how to make a cockup!
    So on Amazon said my Item, had been delivered to number 62, to someone called Claire.
    I went to 62 and they had no idea who Claire was.
    On The Amazon Rep refunded the order and credited me with £5.00 as way of apology. When asked to close my account, I failed verification. I asked to speak to a manager. Unfortunately the was no manager free – so a call back was arranged!
    So on They was a delivery. The delivery guy a. did not speak English. Makeing interaction impossible and b. did not know what the item was, so I had to accept it!
    Behold! it was Bluedio Ci3 (Camel) Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Sports Headphones Sweatproof Running Earbuds with Mic (Silver/Black)
    Now when (as agreed on ) the manager calls me i’ll arrange collection.

    UPDATE

    As if more proof Amazon suck was needed a second pair of Bluedio Ci3 (Camel) Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Sports Headphones Sweatproof Running Earbuds with Mic (Silver/Black) tuned up!
    Again left in a public area! on top of the letter box with no way a disabled person could get them!

    UPDATE – Had Enough

    Last few weeks I’ve used amazon a lot for a number of things.

    Last week despite having problems I placed a number of orders for > £400 of stuff.
    I’m constantly on the phone to your customer services as the drivers
    constantly leave the items on the doorstep!
    As I’ve explained I’m disabled and need the driver to hand me the item.
    Today the supervisor tried to brush me off with a limited time the driver has to make deliveries. I open the door In < 1 minute, hear them outside
    messaging with paper work. The have 3 seconds to open my door and hand me them item.I purchased prime for deliveries – you’ve failed to do this properly
    as result I’d like a full refund and you can close my account. Any item left on the doorstep will be returned.

    UPDATE – Closed –

    On a few item where left again on the doorstep. So again I call Amazon and closed my account. The convenience of Amazon is destroyed by having to call them for each delivery.

    UPDATE – Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS) –

    To Director John Tagawa
    60 Holborn Viaduct,London,EC1A 2FD,
    Date:
    Our Reference Number: 170125-000097
    Subject: Mr McMorrow, 110a Sylvan Avenue, London, N22 5HY
    Dear Director Tagawa,
    I am writing on behalf of Mr McMorrow who contacted our service, the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS) for advice on discrimination due to his disability. The EASS provide advice and guidance to individuals on matters of possible discrimination under the Equality Act 2010.
    Mr McMorrow is a disabled wheelchair user, who previously contacted our service on 25/01/2017 regarding the issue he has been having with parcels delivered from Amazon. He advised us at the time that when he has parcels delivered from Amazon the parcels are left on the floor between two doors, due to being in a wheelchair Mr Mcmorrow cannot bend down to pick the parcels up. Mr McMorrow uses Amazon frequently and gets 2 to 3 parcels delivered a week. Mr McMorrow is also always in his home, so he is there when the parcels are delivered.
    When he contacted our service on the 25/01/2017, he advised us that he has contacted Amazon on numerous occasions to inform them that he is a disabled customer who cannot physically pick up his parcels from the floor, due to him being in his home when the parcels are delivered he wanted the delivery person to wait until he reaches the door so that he can be handed his parcels personally. We advised Mr McMorrow in January to send one of our template letters to request this has a reasonable adjustment under the Reasonable Adjustment Duty. Mr McMorrow sent the template letter and,as of yet, as not received a response.
    On 14/08/2017, Mr McMorrow contacted our service again to advise us that the last time the parcels were left on the floor was on the 12/08/2017, he contacted Amazon and was told that the complaint will be raised internally, which he is always told and nothing ever happens. The time previous to 12/08/2017, he spoke to a Amazon advisor who put a disabled flag on his account so that it comes up on his account disabled in brackets, this was in the hopes that it would inform the driver that extra time may be needed for Mr McMorrow to reach his door. So far, having the disabled flag as not worked either. Due to not receiving a response from the template letter he sent, and also the continuation of leaving the parcels where he cannot reach them, I am now writing to you regarding this matter with a view to resolving this issue for Mr McMorrow.
    Within the Equality Act 2010, a service provider has a duty to make reasonable adjustments for an individual who is at a substantial disadvantage due to their disability compared to a non-disabled individual in the same or similar situation. Under the Reasonable Adjustment Duty, service providers are required to comply with the following adjustments:

    * Provision, criterion or practice (PCP): this is not defined by the Act but should be construed widely so as to include, for example, any formal or informal policies, rules, practices, arrangements or qualifications including one-off decisions and actions.
    * Physical Features: for example, steps, stairways, kerbs, exterior surfaces and paving, parking areas, entrances and exits, internal and external doors, gates, toilet and washing facilities, lighting and ventilation, lifts and escalators, signs. This is not an exhaustive list.
    * Auxiliary Aids and Services: which provide support or assistance to a disabled person. It can include a special piece of equipment, extra staff assistance to disabled people, induction loops or infrared broadcast system, audio-visual alarms etc.

    The duty to make adjustments requires service providers to take such steps as it is reasonable to have to take, in all the circumstances of the case, in order to make adjustments. The Act does not specify any particular factors that should be taken into account. What is a reasonable step for a service provider to take will depend on all the circumstances of each individual case.
    If it is reasonable for the service provider to make an adjustment then it must be made. A failure to comply with this duty could be unlawful under the Equality Act.
    If you are able to look into this matter, at your earliest convenience, with a view to a resolution for Mr McMorrow, we look forward to your reply. Alternatively, you may wish to contact Mr McMorrow yourself to discuss this issue.
    Regards
    Jayne
    Equality Advisory Support Service (EASS)
