To whom it my concern,

In August 2022 I looked for a Kirby supplier in the Cape Town area and found Az vacuums Kirby service listed under Kirby. It was the closest Company to where my children live.

I took my Kirby machine to be serviced along with the Vacuum cleaner hose (it was damaged) the pipe (it was not damaged) and the hard floor tool (it needed repairs)

The cost was R7950.00 for the service and parts. I paid a 50% deposit and the balance on collection. I live 4 hours away from Cape Town so a friend collect for me. On receipt of vacuum, I contacted the dealers to say the hose - pipe - and floor tool was missing they said it would courier to me.

One Year later I'm still waiting for my items and yesterday I told that they have no idea what I'm talking about they have no record of me on their books and possibly I was lying.

I have owned a Kirby for the last 30 years and find this totally unacceptable. I live on a farm and cannot use the Kirby as need my parts returned.

All I ask after paying this huge amount that the items outstanding are returned to me in good order.

If this company is not an official Kirby dealer, why are they trading under your banner and destroying your reputation. I see they have a Facebook page and I'm not the only one that has had this problem.

Your name reputation and product stand for great value and service but this is totally unacceptable.

I attach the invoice received from them:
