Angry eMoto - poor and illegal customer service

Just thought I'd share my experience of ordering products from eMoto - not one I will ever repeat and not one I'd ever recommend.
I ordered (quite a lot) of parts for my F4 in September - and have yet to recieve part of the order. Despite numerous phonecalls (to surly nasty mannered shop staff who actually hung up on me twice) and many email requests (detailed below) they still refuse to refund me for the parts outstanding. I've worked in retail myself - and this is the first time I've ever had to complain like this about a retailer - I'm a pretty tolerant and understanding person but this has been ridiculous.

They are in direct breach of the distance selling act 2000 by not refunding or delivering goods within 30 days.

Have a read of the emails and draw your own conclusions:

Hi,

I placed an order on your website on the 20th September (reference: emotouk1190314224 below) however, I am yet to recieve the complete consignment.

I would therefore request that you refund the full outstanding amount to the card used in the transaction.

I do not want a store credit as suggested by your staff - but would like a full refund for the goods not recieved.

Please contact me to confirm this refund.

Regards,

Joshua Fitzgerald

Thank you.

Hi,

I would not like to wait another week, as I have been promised that they will arrive 'next week' on 3 occasions already. Please refund as requested.

Hello,
Thank you for your email. The promise was made last week on the pretence that the parts would be included in last weeks package.
The parts have been ordered in for you and will arrive next week.
Thank you.

Hi,

The promise you refer to has been made several times and every time on the same basis. I am not happy to accept the same promise a fourth time. If I do not recieve either the goods or a refund by next week I will be seeking recourse through my solicitor.

Furthermore I am also an established member of many mv agusta and ducati forums and I will make it my business to ensure that all my fellow bikers are very well aware of the poor customer service you have provided.

Since I own 3 ducatis and an MV it is a shame that a company that boasts an impressive range of products has shown a woeful approach to its customer service and communication, as I would have been a long-standing customer.

Dear Sir,
There is no poor customer service here, the facts are: if a part is out of stock, we cannot ship it as it is physically not in our warehouse..
We have informed you on several occasion that the Rizoma grips were out of stock. We have not made an promises.
We have advised you ONCE of the expected date of arrival.
We now have confirmation that they will arrive next week and will ship out immediately.
We have communicated and responded to all your requests in a timely manner.
Kind regards,
Sales Dept
eMoto

I am afraid we will continue to differ here - and several promises have indeed been made on 3 seperate occasions. I was not once advised of any delay in the shipment of the grips and bar ends that are outstanding, the only (very limited and untruthful) information I have had is through the several phone calls I have had the misfortune to have to make to your shop staff.

I will not continue to dispute this with you - but I will make this issue as public as I possibly can and will pursue legal recourse if the matter is not resolved within the week.

I hope this clarifies my position on the matter.

Hello,
That is correct the matter will be corrected within the week as next week the parts that YOU ordered and we ordered in especially for you will be shipped.
We have record of two phone calls from you.
We trust this is understood.
Kind regards,

As per the email below - I would now like to make my final request for a refund for the goods not recived (Rizoma bar end and grips) totalling 52.98 since I am still yet to recieve the remainder of this order despit your assurances.
Please refund my card as agreed.

This is an automated reply to your message sent to: [email protected].

Dear Sir

Thank you for your email.

We are currently away at the Milan Motorcycle Exhibition. We will return
on the 12th of November. We will try and reply to your email as quickly as
possible. We apologize in advance for any delays in replying.

Best regards,
eMoto Team
www.emotouk.com



And lastly my email today (to which I have still recieved no reply):


Again I would like to make a request for a refund regarding the matter below - as I'm sure you are aware the distance selling act demands that you must deliver goods ordered within 30 days unless otherwise agreed. Therefore unless a refund is issued today I will be contacting my local trading standards office at county hall.

all for some bar ends and grips? seems like a lot of aggravation for $100 worth of stuff.

i had about 700** u.s in parts on hold from Emoto....took like 3 months to get the stuff.... I never complained, just made sure they didn't forget about me..... finally got my stuff and Geoff added a few suprises for me.... had a long wait, but still will do my biz with Emoto..... great guys that get really busy at times.... I can understand that.

Why is everyone so inclined to sue these days??? The prices of Mv's hasn't risen that much.....I dont get it.
If you want to be respected, then first show some respect.
Emoto is good people.

I agree with Djester; parts from Italy take time and it's never as fast as we would like. PATIENCE and persistance are recommended.Your first email was only on Sept 20,2007.

Joshua, hang in there. Parts are better than money, espec those rearsets.
