TERRIBLE SERVICE - DONT EVER USE BAX
LATEST UPDATE 1st April 2021, to the review below... BAX have made a further major error. Despite their promise of a refund below, they have now despatched a replacement item to me. I do not want or need a replacement, its far too late for that. What I need is what they promised below - A REFUND. I have escalated this matter to PayPal as BAX ignore all of my emails and calls.
FURTHER UPDATE 31 MAR '21 to the review below... Despite the apology from Bax Music below, and their promise of refund - I STILL DONT HAVE MY MONEY BACK. I still cant get through to their Customer Services, only ever trips to their Reception Desk. I also received an email today saying they have received the damaged item back (they actually received it back on the 11th March!) and that due to their policy I am entitle to "an exchange". I dont want an exchange, I want my money back as they promised me so long ago. This company goes from bad to worse. I also note on Trust Pilot that many other reviewers are having the same problems as I am, in damaged items and no refunds. I have escalated this to PayPal and suggested BAX should not be entitled to use the PayPal platform any more, when they are clearly abusing it and their customers.
ORIGINAL REVIEW - Terrible Service - avoid this company at all costs. I placed an order for a Guitar Case on 21 Feb 2021. The case arrived at my home in the UK on 24 Feb 2021. The Guitar Case was badly damaged i. E. it had a large hole in it. The reason it was damaged in transit was because BAX had put it inside a box with almost no protective wrapping. The outer box had a whole punched through it that then went straight through the guitar case. THIS WAS ONLY THE START OF MY PROBLEMS WITH BAX.
I then spent the next 10 days trying to get in touch with them to start the returns process. Unfortunately their UK website was down for many days, also it is almost impossible to get hold of Customer Services by phone.
Eventually I managed to return the Guitar Case to them on 5th March 2021, they finally acknowledged receipt of it on 11 March 2021. I then spent a few more days trying to get a replacement sent out to me, eventually they confirmed it would be MAY 2021 at the earliest before I could get a replacement.
At this point I asked for a refund and they agreed. Its now 27 March (16 days after they received the damaged case back) and I still have no refund and no explanation. I call them every day, several times a day and never get to speak to Customer Services, it always trips through to their Reception Desk. They take my details and say I will get a Call Back from Customer Services within 1 day. I have done this many times and no-one ever calls me back.
I paid through PayPal so it now looks like I will have to raise an Escalation / Complaint via PayPal to try to get my money back. BAX is never going to survive as a business with such poor Customer Service, particularly when compared to Amazon and others who put the Customer first. BAX put the Customer LAST!
