Dear Customer Care,
My shed I ordered on 1st May was rescheduled to be delivered for the 3rd time! this morning Sat 27th May between 7am and 9am. I set my alarm and waited in, at 9am I checked the online tracker to see the shed was not on the van and would have to be scheduled for a 4th time!
I have not received any message to say it would not be delivered.
I called your customer care and tried to explain the situation to a pleasant lady, sounded like she was in a southern state in USA. She was very apologetic and put me on hold for 10 minutes while she contacted your logistics, after 10 minutes she came back to apologise she had been cut of from the call with them.
I have hired my gardener and his friend to empty, take down my old shed, lay a concrete base and erect my new shed at a cost of £500. They have carried out all the work and I had paid them £300, leaving £200 for the erection of the shed. After scheduling them 3 times to carry out this work, I have decided to pay them the £200 for their wasted time.
I am now £200 out of pocket, wasted 3 days of my time and without a shed. The contents of my old shed have been under plastic sheeting for 6 weeks now,
Please can you let me know if you are can deliver the shed or is it better to refund me so I can find an alternative?
The order ref is at the bottom of this email .

Dear Customer Care,
Further to my last email sent 16 May with my complaint, I would like to inform you of the latest development.
My shed was rescheduled to be delivered between 7.20 and 9.20 Saturday 20th May. I planned my day to accommodate this, setting my alarm at 7am. At 8.27am I received a text message advising me that there is a problem with the vehicle and I would not be receiving the delivery today.
I ordered and paid for this shed 1st May to be delivered within 10 working days. I have spent a lot of time in going back and forth to work, waiting in, on the telephone to the courier and writing to you.
This is not good enough. I hope to receive a reply to this email as I didn’t get an acknowledgment of the last complaint!

Dear Customer Care,
I am sending this email to complain about the delivery service of the garden shed, order below.
Order of events:
1st May order placed
12th May order shipped
14th May confirming delivery 10-12 15/05
15th May 9.39 I called driver(Paul) to explain I work 15 minutes from home, after confirming my name and address he said “I am 10 minutes away”. So I dashed home.
10.18 I called driver asking where he was, he said ”I am 45 minutes away” so I dashed back to work.
11.20 I received an email stating the driver would be with me at 12.14
12.08 I arrived back home, after passing a large van at the end of my road, I called Paul and he said he would turn around and come back.
12.20 I called Paul, no answer
12.32 I called Paul, no answer
12.34 I called Paul, no answer
12.45 I contacted Panther Logistics, who were very apologetic but said he wasn’t returning and they will reschedule my shed delivery for 20/05
This caused me loads of stress and I have had to cancel the 2 handymen that were erecting it for me today. Its caused headaches at work and embarrassment with my handymen.
