    Default wheelcourier.com warning

    DO NOT USE THESE!..

    firstly, they say the charge is 36 quid but thats a pre tax value.

    it ends up being over 40 quid but you only find that out after putting all your details in and actually booking it!..

    then, they sent me email with the booking order that said...

    4X WHEELS TO BE PICKED UP THE NEXT DAY BLAH BLAH BLAH..

    then when the courier came ( which was dhl anyway), she said " oh, i cant pick x4 wheels up as i only have orders to pick x2 wheels up?....

    i said two's no good as i booked 4 and showed her the order that i got emailed but she was a bit of a jobsworth and stuck to her orders and i kept all the wheels...

    it was only after she'd gone that i then received mail off wheelcourier.com telling me that i had to " tape two wheels together" and send them as two parcels...

    now how the hell do i "tape" two 18" wheels together and secondly, how was the very thin young lass they sent going to lug them about, and thirdly, why was i sent mail with instructions on the day they were to be picked up?.. what a farce........

    they have no fone number so i had to send mail and that takes ages and i complained.... they then told me that i HAD been sent instructiones (that i got after the courier left) and if i wanted them picked up again, id have to pay an additional ten pounds as he put it so politley and i declined.

    i then asked for a full refund and they said no so im now in the process of kicking off with paypal as i paid through them to get my money back...

    iv now got to pay another courier to sort this out as the buyer paid up in full and the lad wants his wheels.

    so DO NOT USE WHEELCOURIER.COM FULL STOP!.

    bunch of *****.

    rant over

    If only you could actually spell "unnecessary", then I'd bother to answer your question. But you can't, so I won't.

    just ignore him leon... he's obviousley upset at me over something lol

    it is pretty pathetic when when people constantly drone on and have to make a huge deal about spelling on here but it happens regular..... must make them feel superior when they correct others like a school teacher. makes me somtimes not want to post and help people on here as there's no need for childishly pointing one word out thats spelt wrong.

    by all means have a go at someone thats text-typing and shortening words badley, as that makes things hard to read, but the odd word spelt wrong...pathetic.

    im part dyslexic and use the mac's spellchecker but even thats not perfect.

    never mind tho eh !... back to topic.

    Report them for this, as websites MUST state the fully inclusive price OR state that VAT will apply

    As paid through PayPal, you would be entitled to the difference between the price quoted and the price paid

    Your local authority (through Trading Standards) will then assist you to process a claim for the amount paid
    This trader is committing two offences, the main one is misselling and even of you have paid for the service you would be entitled to a full refund
    If PayPal do not help then Trading Standards can assist further with this second payment
