SkipTheDishes Skip the dishes robbed me

ORDER #[protected]. Took an hour and a half to be delivered. Food was so cold I thought it might have been made yesterday. I can’t eat this food as I am concerned that it is not safe to do so. They gave me 50% refund. They took half of my money and gave me inedible food in return. This is theft. I order from them all the time and have never had an issue like this.

Desired outcome: The rest of my money back… and an apology for the way customer service treated me

SkipTheDishes Stolen Food

I contacted Skip several times that I only received my drinks, I didn't received my breakfast bagels or my hash browns, I only got my drinks. When the delivery driver arrived I asked her what are you doing because she came across me weird 😐 " her response I need to prove that the food was delivered. I was excited when I got the to open the bag to just my drinks, not even a straw or napkin in the bag. Right away I tried to contact skip, and the driver. Skip was so unprofessional to help me. I contacted McDonald's, they ensured me that they put everything in one bag, the took the food outta of my bag, I don't even want to touch my drinks 😑 this is horrible 😫

Desired outcome: Refund for my order and the worker to be fired

SkipTheDishes Delivery Driver

Maybe you should test or tell your immigrant drivers that they must pull over to the curb to make the house delivery. This guy I’ve seen him twice on Ashworth rd SE in Calgary stop in the middle of the main road put his hazards on and leaves vehicle WTF! Next time he won’t get into his vehicle as I will block his door with my truck and chew him/ her a new [censored]. I should’ve got his plate # and next time it will all be recorded! Training is key here!

SkipTheDishes Order was never received and 4 days later no solution have been made

I ordered from the Earl of Sandwiche on August 10th, 2023 in Kelowna BC to be delivered to the Manteo at Eldorado Resort (address 3762 Lakeshore road) and it was never delivered. I have the conformation email that the order was placed the order number was #[protected]. When I placed the review and messaged the customer support team I was told it would be looked into and I haven't heard anything back since then. I am extremely disappointed in the customer service that was nearly nonexistent.

Desired outcome: I would like a full reimbursement for the money I spent as well as the points I used to discount my order

SkipTheDishes Food delivery

I ordered McDonalds food last night while at work. I ordered a filet o fish meal that included a filet-o-fish sandwich, medium fries and drink as well as 2sets of 2 apple pies (4 total) and a Big Mac sandwich was included as a free deal because I spent a certain amount. When I received my food from their delivery, I realized that I was missing all 4 pies and my medium French fries. I sent them a complaint by email and was told that there was nothing that they would do. I paid for items of food that I did not get and will not be compensated for. Not a lot of money, but it is the principle of it.

Desired outcome: To be paid back for items I did not recieve

SkipTheDishes Driver theft

Skip the Dishes' drivers (couriers) frequently commit theft. The company never acknowledges this.

My most recent experience was on June 15th, 2023. The driver located my building correctly, located the instructions that gave the buzzer code, buzzed my apartment, was let in, then never delivered the food, despite my receiving a notification that the delivery was complete. I checked outside my door and in the lobby of my very quiet building, and there was nothing there.

I contacted a support agent on their chat. Their training is clearly to gaslight the customer into believing that they: a) received the food and just can't see it somehow, b) gave incorrect delivery information, and then circle back through these two options endlessly. I wanted basic answers like, "where did my food go?" and "have you contacted the driver to ask?" and could not get an answer beyond "well, the driver says it was delivered, so it must have been". They behave as though granting a refund is the utmost in service, when it should be the very least a customer receives. I followed up with a complaint through Skip the Dishes' support centre and received the same run-around from the agent: no accountability, no explanations, no acknowledgement that their employee stole my order, and altogether dismissive treatment. No attempt to perform any sort of "service recovery" or apologize for the experience. I am furious and fully finished with this company.

Desired outcome: 1) I want an honest explanation of where, precisely, my order went. 2) I want the theft acknowledged. 3) I want my refund credited back to my credit card rather than store credit. 4) I want additional compensation for the terrible service.

SkipTheDishes My order was sent to the wrong address

My whole order was sent tot the wrong address. Basically the skip. the dish courier got to keep my order. My should or was $32.79 I was total I would only get 50% of my order I only received $12 something which isn't 50%. I was treated very badly. By customer service. I had to spend and extra $4.00 to buy something for my child to eat. And I went hungry. I could afford to put more money in. I didn't ask for skip credits, and I got skip credits the wrong address didn't even exist. You guys basically stole my money and gave a free meal to one of your couriers.

To be honest I will never order from skip the dish again I should've received my full or a full reorder or full refund. When I talked to. your personal you were very unhelpful and people refused to take to me. I work in customer service and never felt so disrespected. I wasn't even rude I just wanted my money.

Desired outcome: A full refund

SkipTheDishes Skip the Dishes driver hit my garage door and skip refused to release info

Hello,

On March 24th a skip the dishes driver hit my garage door and drove off. I contacted skip the dishes about it and they said they would only release info to the police. The police contacted them and then skip the dishes refused to release info to them without a production order. All I was looking for was a plate number. Uber has driver plate numbers right on the app, it is ridiculous that skip the dishes doesn't provide that, it is a safety concern.

Desired outcome: Want the driver info from Skip the Dishes and Skip to be held accountable for this.

SkipTheDishes skip credits

Me and my family members have a skip the dishes account for a long time. i tried to place an order for my family today as I am single mom without a job and the order would not go through. I contacted few agents to find the reason for the issue and they kept disconnecting it and told me my account was flagged even though I have not used it for a while. They refused to talk or give me reasons and disconnected the chat. I am not sure the reason but I have around $300 credits that I kept for worse time and it just gone. Canyou pls assist me this matter as those were hard earned credits and I had it for a long time. thanks

They are a scam there drivers are thieves which eat your food before delivering it to you. And the company doesn't like to take any responsibility. So it seems they're ignoring you also. They're terrible.

SkipTheDishes Food Delivery

2023 04 07 at 2AM

I ordered groceries from skip costing 90$. The order has arrived but I could not locate it. Upon messaging their support team they claim the driver said it was delivered to my unit door which is a lie. I told them this wasn't true and they ended the chat. After that I spoke to two more reps and both gave me the cold shoulder completely disregarding everything I had said.

I just want my food.

Desired outcome: I would like my food or money back please.

SkipTheDishes Delivery driver abusive and threatening

Monday, April 3rd delivering to an address between 3544 and 3558 Tillicum Rd, Victoria, BC at approximately 10 pm

I came home to find a white car parked in my unit's parking spot, to which I honked as I noticed someone was in the car. When the person inside the car failed to move the car I put my car in park and shut off my car and proceeded towards my condo. The female delivery driver was then exiting my condo building and became verbally abusive when I told her she should not park in owners' parking spots. The delivery driver then threatened to hit my car even after I told her she had space to move from the spot.

After dropping my parcels inside my unit I then went back outside to move my car. She (Skip the dishes driver) and her passenger were still sitting in their delivery car when I arrived back outside, however she felt compelled to get out of her car and come toward me while I was getting in my car to move for her. She (the driver) then started threatening to wanting to "get into it" at that moment and told me I need to get a grip. I advised her she needed to get a grip and have a little respect for peoples property.

To note: there are signs at the entrance to the complex advising to where visitor parking is located, as well, there is a strip mall parking lot less than 30 feet from my car to where anyone can park and not interfere with the complex's owner parking spaces.

Desired outcome: Partly, I ponder reporting this to police due to the threat against me and my property, (in case there have been other complaints). Sadly, I doubt your company would bring any action against this driver, just as police don't have time to

SkipTheDishes Aggressive delivery driver

I had made a grocery order with skip the dishes and had the most aggressive and impolite driver. The driver had called me and asked if I can go outside and help him carry the groceries inside and how apparently “I’m holding up orders” when it’s clearly his job to deliver my groceries to me. It is not my responsibility to go and help a driver especially when I am fasting for Ramadan. He was very rude and inconsiderate on the phone trying to blame me for the ice on the side walk when I am not responsible to clean the snow or ice off my sidewalk as I live in a townhouse complex and the condo management is responsible for it not me. He was saying how he doesn’t have WCB and apparently if anything happens to him it’s my fault. I told him it’s not my job to help him out and I’m fasting for Ramadan. I had also gave him a 8 dollar tip and this is clearly his job. He made me feel very uncomfortable. I will never order from skip the dishes again. I contacted skip the dishes and all they offered me was a 5 dollar credit.

Desired outcome: I would like a refund on my order.

SkipTheDishes Delivery

Hello

I ordered food and without delivering the food it showed that the food was delivered.This is not the first time I’ve been cheated.Without delivering the food , they just say that it was delivered.When I reached out to them, they informed it was delivered. I had a picture showing in this snowy weather we did not had any foot prints and also our camera had proof that no one delivered.They should stop this type of service immediately.

Thank you

Regards

SkipTheDishes Order not delivered and shows delivered, two times in one hour

We placed an order at 9:45 pm and it showed it will be delivered by 10:30 pm. All the details were cleared mentioned on the order, we even provide our contact number for the driver to call just in case if he not able to find the location. We went out when it showed that the driver has arrived with our food but there was no car outside and it is a one way to our complex, one way in and one way out and the order showed delivered. We contacted customer service and they did provide us with a refund for it and 10:45 we again placed an order for the same items and the same restaurant and we even called the restaurant to tell them that this has happened and their response was never order from skip the dishes as these drivers do take the food often and never deliver it. By that time we had already place the order for the same items and the second driver around 11:45 was around 1km away and we get a message saying that the order was delivered, we went out and checked the whole complex again just to locate the food. It was the second time in 2 hours that we had to spent 15 minutes each time in the cold at -10 degrees looking for which we had paid money for. Same response from the customer service agent go look here for the food and telling us that the driver has delivered and we are the ones who could not locate it. By that time it was 12 am, we had to take a refund again and there was hardly any remorse on the customer service team that we had to wait almost 2 and half hour with no food as we both had a late night shift that day. They are not willingly to take any action against the drivers and just give out chat bot answers.

ORDER #[protected]

ORDER #[protected]

Desired outcome: Provide compensation for time wasted and making us walk in the cold for 30 minutes when we have paid for delivery and the services which is the whole point of the app. The frequency of this happening is just increasing.

SkipTheDishes Order not delivered

I ordered food on March 4, 2023. I live in a high rise apartment downtown, and have had issues with Skip the Dishes not delivering my food to my door in the past, so I purposely changed my delivery instructions to state that I wanted it delivered to my door. I watched the tracker on my computer screen to see when it would be expected. I saw the car arrive at my place, and was waiting for the phone to show the driver was buzzing in. Instead, I got a text saying that the individual couldn't find parking and asking me to come down to get the order. As soon as I read the text, I noticed that the car appeared to now be about two blocks away on the tracker. I was annoyed, but went down the 20 floors anyway. My food was nowhere to be found.

I found it interesting that when I got to the lobby, a driver for Door Dash was in between the lobby doors in the process of buzzing in to another customer in the building. He got in without a problem and proceeded to go up in the elevator to deliver the lucky customer's food. Like I said, mine was nowhere to be found. I looked in the lobby, in between the doors, outside the doors, and even went to the back door. No food anywhere.

Now really annoyed, I returned to my apartment and tried to text the driver back asking where they had left the order. I got an automatic reply saying that the number could only be used for outgoing texts. My roommate went down to check for the food again while I tried to report the problem on the Skip website. In the past there was a chat bot where you could report any issues, but that was no longer there. I googled the phone number for customer service, but when I called, the automated message said that they are no longer accepting telephone complaints. The message said to report the issue on their website using the chat (which as I said is no longer there).

I went back to their website and reported the issue as best I could given the meager tools they provided. It's a series of buttons that sorta/kinda resembles your issue. While I was not interested in a refund, and just wanted them to track down my food, the only option was to request a refund. Meantime my roommate got back reporting that he couldn't locate the order either. When I got to the screen to process the refund, I found that they were only giving the option to request a refund for the subtotal BEFORE the delivery fee. The subtotal was $25 and change, but I had paid $31 and change. In the box marked "Anything else to say?" I wrote that I wanted a FULL refund, not only the $25. The message that came up said they would get back to me to let me know if my request for a refund was accepted.

Later that night I got an email from Skip the Dishes saying that my request was denied. That's it. No explanation, except for a link to their terms of service. I don't know about anyone else, but I call this THEFT. I ended up ordering my dinner from the sushi place across the street. Eating dinner ended up costing me almost $100 that night, even though I only ate $50 worth of food.

This has to be stopped. There is literally no recourse. It's so frustrating not to be able to speak to someone to express what the actual situation is. This is an expensive "service" that doesn't offer any... well... service. They literally stole $31 from me, and there are no consequences for them? I don't think so. Something has to be done.

Desired outcome: Refund; promise to implement internal changes that guarantee customers aren't victimized anymore.

SkipTheDishes Pizza delivery

Order number [protected]

The driver drove further away from the resturant after he picked up the food. After he drove further away, he said in an unknown location for more than 15 minutes without moving. When he finally delivered the food, it was not in a heat bag and it was ice cold. Skip refuses to provide a full refund only a 50% refund. I am considering calling the police for failing to provide paid services.

Desired outcome: Hot food on time

SkipTheDishes Gift card

I received a $60 Skip The Dishes gift card from friends. They included the receipt for the purchase from a local Shoppers Drug Mart. I tried to reveal the activation code to use the card on Dec 28/22 but the code was damaged when I tried to scratch off the seal. I immediately contacted Skip The Dishes through my app to report the problem. I was told I needed to contact Shopper Drug Mart. They instructed me to provide photos of the damaged card and my personal information so they could advise their Third Party Vendor to resolve the issue. I did as I was asked and was told the matter was escalated to the third party. On Jan 10/23 I received an email from Shoppers Drug Mart telling me that their gift card partner, Blackhawk Network, suggested I contact Skip The Dishes because they only handle gift card activations and are unable to retrieve the funds. I responded saying I had already been in touch with Skip The Dishes and they told me to speak to Shoppers. I agreed to try Skip The Dishes again. Jan 10/23 I opened an online chat with Sweetia from Skip The Dishes through my app, explained the situation and provided pictures of the damaged card. Sweetia advised me that the $60 would be credited to my Skip The Dishes account. Jan 22/23 my account had still not been credited so I reached out to Skip The Dishes again through my app and spoke to Manpreetk. I explained the situation again and provided pictures of my gift card. I explained the amount was to be credited to my account. Manpreetk assured me the matter would be resolved within 5 days. Jan 26/23 there was still no response or credit to my account so I opened a chat with Sukhmeet through my Skip The Dishes app providing all the same information and pictures explaining my expectation that my account would be credited as promised. I was given another run around so I asked to speak to a manager directly. I was told a manager would call me with the hour. I received a call as promised, explained my situation at length again and was assured my issue would be passed along to the operations team at Skip The Disges for further investigation. Approx. 30 min later I received an email from the Operations Team at Skip The Dishes advising me they checked the serial number of the gift card and they claim it had been redeemed and due to privacy laws they couldn’t tell me where it was used or who redeemed it. I wrote back explaining this was not possible because the activation code was damaged and therefore the card couldn’t have been used. Frustrated, I explained the exhausting efforts I’ve made trying to get Skip The Dishes to honour their promise to credit my account only to be lied to and accused of trying to commit fraud. Jan 27/23 I open a chat with Veerpal on my Skip The Dishes app once again explaining the situation, the promise that hadn’t been honoured to credit my account and provide pictures of the gift card and receipt again. Veerpal advised me he couldn’t access and add any credit for my account. I asked to speak to a manager and was told someone would call me. No one did. Jan 28/23 I called Shopper Drug Mart again and explained to a customer service rep what my experience has been trying to resolve the issue with the gift card. I was advised that a third party vendor manages these gift cards and I have to speak to Skip The Dishes to resolve the issue. The shoppers drug mart rep said they could connect me to Skip The Dishes directly and transferred my call. The call was directed to a message that told me to use my Skip the dishes app and abruptly ended the call. I called Shoppers Drug Mart back and explained how the call was disconnected and asked to speak to a shoppers drug mart manager. I was assured a manager would reach out to me within 24 hrs. As promised I received a call, explained my situation and experience. The manager explained they couldn’t do anything to refund the money and suggested I speak to Skip The Dishes again. Jan 31/23 I check my account to see if there has been a credit and there has not. I open a chat with Harleen through my Skip The Dishes app, explain the situation, my experience, and the expectation that Skip The Dishes honour their promise to credit my account. Harleen tells me they purchase the gift cards from a third party vendor and they cannot credit my account. Harleen suggests I speak to Shoppers Drug Mart. I am furious at this point. Skip The Dishes is a despicable business with no sense of respecting the customer. Money has been stolen from my friends who purchased a gift card as a gift to me. I expect a resolution to this matter and Skip The Dishes and Shoppers Drug Mart need to reevaluate their business practise when it comes to their gift cards. This is unacceptable. I plan to bring this to the Better Business Bureau and anyone who will listen and hopefully make a change.

Desired outcome: I expect the money to be refunded to me.
