I placed an order on February 3rd 2021. Waited for about month and because there was no any communication from Dell I checked my order on their web site. I was shocked when I saw that, according to them, my laptop has been "on FedEx truck" since February 13.
I called Dell's customer service and they told me something was wrong. They created service request and placed another order. I was told the shipment will be expedited. I waited for about 10 days or so. On delivery date I stayed home but package never arrived. I checked FedEx tracking number and found that package was delivered. I called FedEx and they told me that package was delivered, but the address Dell gave them was wrong. Dell sent laptop to business some two miles away from my place. I am still shocked how customer service person who placed an order could put wrong address even though in the system they have the correct one. Anyway, I called Dell's customer service again, they acknowledged their error and told me somebody will call me to fix this after their accounting department approves the second order. I got an email that the second order was approved, but nobody called me. I waited several days and finally I called customer service one more time. Of course, I wanted to elevate this issue because the whole situation was ridiculous. After going with CS reps back and forth for several minutes, I finally was able to talk to supervisor. He listened to me, checked my claims and took an issue in his hands. So, after almost THREE months I finally got the machine.
I know that Dell does not care about me and people like me, but I would heartily suggest them to move customer service from India. One CS rep that I talked to was in environment with a lot of kids. I could not hear him at all that how kids were loud. He unsuccessfully tried to find quieter place. It was so unprofessional and Dell should be embarrassed.
This was so painful experience that I promised myself never buy anything from Dell even if my life would depend on that.
