Thumbs down SPP is disappointing me big time so far

Granted my order is late because of a manufacturer delay but SPP is handling this very poorly.

Facts:
1. 28-Apr, Mon - Ordered my KW V3. Was told it should ship out from KW in a week.
2. 29-Apr, Tue – Credit card was charged.
3. 5-May, Mon – Called SPP and was told by Eric that it already shipped from KW.
4. 7-May, Wed – I PMed and called Eric for tracking info and was told that KW will ship it on 17-May! I was unhappy about being misinformed and Eric was sorry and was willing to do anything to make it up. I didn’t demand anything.
5. 19-May, Mon morning – I PMed Eric at 7am about the status.
6. 19-May early pm – I called SPP around mid-afternoon to follow up and the guy who picked my call said he’ll check with Eric.
7. 19-May 7pm – Call wasn’t returned so I called again only to get my call “noted” again by a lady.
8. 20-May, Tue 2pm – Call still wasn’t returned so I called SPP and talked to the same lady. I was unhappy and asked why my calls were not getting returned. I was told to have patience (without her sounding mean, in fairness) and was told that they don’t have a status from KW yet.

Another fact: It always takes a few calls to get to the right person (Eric) and sometimes calls are not returned. I always had to call and never had a courtesy call from SPP for updates.

Current order status: 22 days and counting / Unknown

I hope SPP can do things better from now on.

pretty pathetic service. if you don't hear something back in a few days, I'd cancel the charge on your CC. They don't deserve your $

SPP is good, but I hate when I can't get in contact with Eric and I've spent over 10K. I understand he runs a shop, but they use the same excuse all the time for 10 hrs a day, hes under a car, and what not...... It gets old and boring..... and sometimes gives me the run around, but always tends to do the right thing at the end of the day.

Hello Allan!

Just saw your post......sorry about the delay on your order.

Unfortunately, we dont make the parts and are at the mercy of KW GERMANY....if I had an update regarding your I would tell you or have someone else from here get in touch with you. If I am not available any of our knowledgeable and friendly staff will gladly help you as well. Unfortunately, Im not 100% always available since I have to handle a lot of other aspects of the business.

Please tell me what you want to do. I can refund your card today in full or you can hang in there until your stuff is delivered. If you decide to wait it out we will get you updates as soon as we get them from KW.

Thank you and hope this is resolved one way or another for you.

Regards,

Eric Nareshni

Well having owned and operated a small business myself it's unfortunately not an excuse that he's usually tied up. When trying to juggle phone call's, install's, emails, overseeing orders both being filled and shipped out it doesn't always allow you the proper time to immediately service everyone's exact needs at that moment. But i've dealt with Eric on both a personal and professional level for almost 10 years and sometimes I can't reach him on the first shot via his cell phone because simply put the man is extremely busy. A 12-15 hr day is more than typical for him for as long as I've known him but he earned my trust as a customer immediatelty because he put his best foot forward and tries to service everyone as best he can and ultimately that's all you can ask for!

Thank you for that. I think I'm already utilizing the most efficient way of communication by speaking to them directly.

Yeah 12 hour days are typical for Eric, I speak to him regularly at 10 PM at night while we are both working.

Eric is a good man, just have to be patient with them. Again they don't make the parts...

Eric,

If you read my post, I understand that the manufcaturer delay is beyond your control. What I complain about is your responses to my inquiries (or lack of it).

What I want you to do is communicate to me better going forwards. You're not always available and your friendly staff are not returning my inquiries at their own free will. The May 17th shipping date, which was already two weeks late from your initial estimates, has passed and I didn't even get an update. I should have been contacted on the 18th if the expected shipment did not happen (again). Instead I had to call 3 times and only got a response from you when I posted this negative feedback.

I'd wait to get the coils as I already waited 3 weeks but I hope you and SPP improve things from now on.

Questions:
  • Do you know if it already shipped from KW?
  • If not, when is it estimated to ship out?


Thanks.

Allan

SPP has been taking care of the community for a long time now, there is no reason why they would delay your order.

Delays are standard in this industry. Supreme does not make the KWs so give them a break

You should check with KW to see if they have an update, surely they know if there is delay or not.

If the kit is sitting on the shelf at KW then I would be pissed but if it's backordered then the wait it on.

To everybody responding to this thread: please read my issue above. To recap.
  • I'm not accusing SPP of delaying the order
  • I'm not speculating on anything
  • All stated statements are facts
  • I understood the delay is beyond SPP's control
  • I'm only complaing about the way SPP is handling the situation

Calling KW myself to check my order won't work since I did not place the order myself. That's the vendor's job.

I agree SPP seems to have a good reputation thus my decision of buying from them to start with. I hope they turn things around and make it better.

I can feel your pain.
It is funny how some of the members are willing to take the Vendor side with out even considering the side of the buyer.
I was in your boat some time back. Not the same vendor.
Good luck

Thank you. I hope to hear timely updates from you when they become available.

I'd like to stop complaining as I think I've already done that but I'm getting this feeling that you're not recognizing/acknowledging the issues I've raised which is unfortunate. The statement above about letting customers know what's going on just completely contradicts my experiences so far. Without trying to repeat everything I've already said:
  • I was told my order already shipped only to find out two days later upon my tracking info request that it won't even ship until two weeks later.
  • Another two weeks passed and it appeared it still didn't ship out but I wasn't told of the further delay.
  • To make matters worse, I had a PM unanswered for 3 days and had to call 3 times between yesterday and today only to find out that the status is still unknown.

I agree that you don't have to let me know of every single thing that happens to my order but I think I deserved to be informed of the second delay. I was expecting you to manage my expectations better especially after the first screw up. And if a customer calls 3 times and pmed you it really really means the customer need to hear from you.

Sorry for this rant Eric. I just need to say what I think should be said. Thanks.

I am Allen! I just want you to get your suspension and be happy with your purchase...and with SUPREMEPOWER....

I hate when things arent smooth and when customers are upset. This job is tough enough without the added stress of unhappy customers! Well thats just cuz I actually care about our image and customer satisfaction.

I got your best interest here. I promise you that

Just so you know the last update I got was that it was scheduled to ship from Germany on the 17th.

I pressed them hard today to get me info and they are supposed to let me know in the morning. I will ofcourse keep you posted
