Partsgeek - Wrong part shipped, Right part ordered
I ordered a driver side front control arm from parts geek, and was shipped the passenger side part. This is a Mercedes part and costs almost $500. In their defense the part was labeled incorrectly. OK, inconvenient, but understandable. What happened next is why I'm writing this..
When I contacted their "customer service" on April 7th I was sent an automated e-mail stating I'd hear back from them in "24-48 hrs". I was asked for pictures and information which I provided that same day along with my daytime phone number, which to date has not been used by them. For the next 13 days I sent message after message, all were answered with the same automated message. On the 15th of April I was sent an RMA number, but no offer to pay for return shipping? I was expected pay to remedy their mistake? I immediately demanded a UPS label be sent to me.
Finally on April 20th I was sent a message stating that they were sorry that I was sent then wrong part and would be sent a UPS call tag within 48 hours. They never sent it. When I contacted them about the UPS tag I was given a snarky answer on April 25th saying "ANOTHER" call tag would be sent. It's now April 29th and I still have no call tag. I'm very disgusted with their total lack of any semblance of competence or accountability and I simply refuse to just "eat" a $500 part just because this company's employees cant get off any of their dead behinds and do their job.
Never, ever do business with this scam of a company.
