    Default why dvdboxoffice sucks

    i just waited for 3 months for resident evil to arrive for my gamecube.

    yesterday i got the following email from them

    I do apologize, but I received Resident Evil back today. It was marked by customs as unclaimed. I have credited you for the disc less $4 for the reshelving fee.

    what does this mean i asked them. no reply. last time i ever order from them.

    so where next? the-rage.com? where can i get stuff cheapest including (reliable) shipping? (and preferably no customs charge)

    Agreed box office do suck they have pissed me off several times

    Try
    ncsx.com
    tronixweb.com
    therage.com
    lik-sang.com
    dcslinks.com

    the bottom 2 I really like and use lots, dcslinks is my fave.

    I'd go with someone else, like therage.com. You can NEVER count on the "free-shipping" shops. You can never know if they actually have you stuff in stock.

    I'm hearing good things about goblin direct although they are a little pricey.

    I've preordered SMS and SFA from ncsx without problems, post on each is around $10 so each game only turns out a few quid more than dvdboxoffice.

    I'll wait and see what happens on the 26th August...

    I waited ages for Res Evil, didn't bother me cos of no FreeLoader but if I had the FL and was waiting for Res Evil I would have been mighty pissed off.

    Altho they didnt charge me until they had confirmed that it had been sent so not all bad

    If it was a dodgy company then they may decide to take the piss a little more

    I agree that they do indeed "suck ass". Although their prices are cheap, stuff just takes too long to arrive, some cases i've heard it take up to 8 weeks for stuff to arrive.

    I dont know about you i'd rather pay an extra 5 and get it a hell of a lot sooner than they can do

    Even the most efficient company,s will have hiccups from time to time, so the person that hiccup happened to is gonna complain. As long as they get it right most of the time then i guess thats what gets them a good rep.

    Just because I'm from Eastern Europe doesn't mean my credit card is stolen. After two weeks of intense emailing, I purchased game from tronixweb.com.

    Are the prices on therage.com in US Dollars or Canadian Dollars?

    dvdboxoffice are bob - I've had Virtual Striker on order since 18/05/02.

    Hmmm, I'm surprised to read so many negative posts about dvdboxoffice.

    I've dealt with them many times and I have nothing but praise for them.

    Always very fast delivery, good communication and well packaged goods.

    I wonder if these are unusual problems or dvdboxoffice is starting to let it's previous high standards of customer service slip a wee bit.
