Review Distribution

3 Reviews by Joseph

It's no wonder why Amazon is distancing itself from UPS, their delivery service and reliability seems to get worse with every order. Packages are almost never delivered on time, some are damaged in transit and some are mishandled by the destination driver who tosses packages on the porch with no obvious concern for what might be inside. I understand that this is the busiest time of the year for shipping companies but, when I come home from work to find my package on the stoop in the rain with no effort made to protect it or, my delivery is two days late because it was sent to one distribution center where it sits for 18 hours before being sent to another center 20 miles away where it sits for another 14 hours before being sent back to the previous center and sent out for delivery from there only to NOT be delivered after all and THEN, the bungling UPS can't even tell me when it WILL be delivered.
Being extremely busy for the holidays is one thing ( FedEx and UPS seem to be handling it just fine) but stupidity, incompetence and UPS just not giving a sh! T about the packages they are entrusted to get there is something completely different.
I certainly can't blame Amazon ( or anyone else for that matter) for not wanting to ship UPS. Given a choice, I wouldn't select to use UPS and, if there is no other choice for shipping, I will look for my purchase from a merchant that does offer ANY other shipping choices.
Placed and order online on Sunday, Oct. 29 and, within 10 minutes, realized that the light I had just ordered wouldn't work because it was not compatible with mounting on a sloped ceiling. I called the customer service number listed on their website ( not expecting anyone to be there on a Sunday night) and left a message with my Order number, phone number and explained that the order should be cancelled because of the mounting incompatibility.
On the afternoon of Monday, Oct. 30,2017 after having received no email response or phone call and no refund to my PayPal, I again called LightsOnline customer service, Option 2 ( Option 1 "to place a new order", Option 2 "about an existing order"). After a few minutes on hold, the message is played, instructing to "leave a message and someone will get back to you" -- Another message left followed by another email. A few hours later, I again called ( Option 2) with the same results. Frustrated, I called and selected Option 1 and was IMMEDIATELY connected to the most rude customer support person who made it sound like she had done me a favor by answering the phone, proclaimed that there were no voicemail messages or emails received regarding my order and, after a few seconds "checking my order" stated that it was in "processing" and couldn't be cancelled.
I was never provided any confirmation that the item was shipped but, on Saturday, Nov. 4,2017, I received an email from FedEx ( we have delivery email alerts) stating that the package was scheduled for delivery on Nov. 6. I called FedEx and refused the package before it was delivered and submitted a dispute in PayPal for a refund. LightsOnline received the package back and never initiated a refund to my PayPal account ( I guess they "didn't get' the emails from PayPal either).
On Saturday, Nov. 18,2017, fifteen business days after placing the order and trying to cancel it, I finally got my refund -- No thanks to LightsOnline worthless P. O. S. "customer service".
LightsOnline.com does seem to have decent prices and a good selection of fixtures BUT, if you decide to buy from them, make sure you understand in advance that the ONLY assistance you will get from them is to help you buy. After that, you're on your own.
THREE YEARS on Ebid as a Lifetime Plus Member ( $49.95 and never even got the Free Ebid.net T-shirt that they advertise) selling brand new commercial truck parts at discount prices, guaranteed lowest prices with price match, free expedited shipping and even allow potential buyers to Make an Offer on listings -- NOT A SINGLE SALE, NOT A SINGLE OFFER AND NOT A SINGLE MESSAGE!
I've since dropped all of my listings from their WORTHLESS website and sent an email for my account to be closed / deleted. I don't have time to waste posting items and checking for sales / messages / offers every day for nothing and, really couldn't care less if they close my account or not -- I'm never going back so I'll never know if it's closed or not.
