    I have made an order for a atacarma rack from hifi***z.co.uk on the 26th of last month and i am still waiting .i just recieved an email saying now i must wait until the 26th of this month ( june) and then it might get posted to me . HOW LONG MUST I WAIT the only reason i say this is that i can get dvd etc from the usa and japan within days , but i must wait a month for a product made in england . :mad: i think all sites that place adverts should tell us what (stock) they have , im sure u guys have made orders and then to be told you must wait, they dont have any . :rolleyes:

    The question is, is the wait worth the discount?

    My rather novel solution to this type of problem is to telephone the company and ask them about their stock levels before placing the order. It has worked several times when dealing with the same company that you are dealing with. If they have stock I order and if they don't have stock they tell me when it is expected in and I can order or not depending on what they tell me.

    To make you feel a bit better... Any piece of furniture bought from where I work and the delivery time is 13 weeks (ish) :lesson:

    well i recieved an email on the 14th june saying
    (They have informed me that we will be receiving our delivery 21/06/04)
    so i phone up today the( 23rd ) and im now told that they dont get atacarma deliveries until friday ( 25th ) what type of monkeys run this buisness if i ran my firms like this i think i would be bust in a matter of weeks .
    well i guess ill wait until monday and then wait for a new lot of c**p to hit my outlook
    u can guess that i wont be using this firm again.
    a free bit of advice dont buy from hi**bit*.co.uk unless u are not fussed when u get your equipment . :nono:

    You must be gutted mate, you should cancel your order for it!

    Im going to place an order for an Atacama Rack (equinox - this the one youre going for?) and it'll be delivered tomorrow or I can pick it up today... why dont you check and see if any local dealers stock them? Pay the bit extra and give them your support!

    Similar thing happened to me with www.hifistore.co.uk. After saying that the speakers and stands i ordered were in stock they took 4 weeks to come. This wasn't entirely their fault but they shouldn't have listed them as in-stock to start with. However after I received the speakers they rang me and offered me a £25 reimbursement and their extended warranty cover at no extra cost so I was pretty pleased in the end.

    well I waited and waited but still no hifi rack I was told wed ,I would get my rack and u guest it ,it didn’t turn up so another day of work for nothing ,I phoned up again and they im told there delivery came in and I would get it on Thursday ,today so not having much faith I phoned up today and was told they sent out the back orders and im the next one to receive the order so I missed it ( after 34 days of waiting) and again they now have told me Friday is when they get there next order so I told them to forget it I have been lied to many times and the service sux.

    I phoned up atacama and told them of the problems I been having and the manager told me they have no graphite av shelf on order with them( can u believe that ) :thumbsdow :thumbsdow so 34 days later 10 phone calls and they didn’t even order one ..
    Atacama are sending me one out today and ill get it tomorrow ..... atacama are a great product and very helpful but as for the other company don’t touch them with a large pole ....
