I purchased a 4.4kva generator on about the 22 February 2012. After numerous phone calls and being left on hold for up to 40 minutes at a time, They could not provide a tracking number and the excuse was that they deal through a broker and he had the number. I asked why that person could not get the number from the broker . But no the broker wouldn't give him the number.
On 16March 2012 I came home to find the generator at the door, no paperwork. No Tax Invoice.

I followed all the instructions regarding the oil etc and started the generator, it didn't sound right and was running rough so I took the generator to an electrician to have it tested. $70.00 later I found out that the generator was fluctuating between 180- 240 volts and the electrician said don't use it it will burn everything. out.
I then contacted the company and spoke to Ray in the Customer (NON) Service Section and told him the story. I said that I wanted a replacement or a refund. He said he would speak with his supervisor and ring me back. OF COURSE HE NEVER DID.
After a few more amails to them threatening to take legal action got an email from Sales and the email said "thanks for your email,
what is your order number, how can I help you"
I sent another email and said that if you received the email the order number was on that email and to contact the Customer service section and sort the matter out.
I have not had any response since that time
I have a copy of all the emails sent to that company and record of all conversations and the name of the person I had them with.
I intend to also make a complaint with ASIC

    We had the same problems. Could never speak to the manager when we asked to and never received phone calls back. We got onto both Consumer Affairs and Current Affair. After A Current Affair contacted them we finally got a refund cheque but no reimbursement for the freight to send it back like they said they would do. We are going to let everyone in the caravaning fraternity know what they would have to contend with if they deal through these people. Don't yoju yhimk this willm make a good topic for Happy Hour.
