I've already waited 4 weeks for the delivery of my sofa which was the time scale I was given, (within 28 days) so I have no complaints there at all, but today, I get an automated call saying my delivery will be delayed until 20th February I call the company department who arrange the delivery dates for further details and an explanation as to why there is such a delay, the reason was, my delivery is a 3 part item and they only have 2 pieces ready for dispatch, however, the third piece could take longer than the 20th of Feb as there is a shortage of that item. The wait continues....

On the plus side, I will be compensated for the inconvenience

I hate that waiting bulls***...and then for them to lay it on you at the last minute that the wait is even longer!!

At least you'll be compensated. I hope they make it worth the trouble.

I always give an extra time limit to myself as opposed to their scheduled time and if it passes my due date, then I go to the top of the matter and get if fixed with discounts, freebies etc... Works every time.

Thats why I called them up to secure the discount if it doesn't arrive by the next date given, I'll be after some vouchers also

Way to go! Got to deal with big business with the mindset of big business or they'll trample all over the average person.

What is the compensation to be? A warmed-over mocha-latté?

Tell them that their future delivery date will conflict with the date of your self-immolation, and that you are cancelling your order so as to have enough to pay for the necessary funeral expenses. Maintain a positive disposition while you tell them to f*** off!!!
