Additional Notes

Complaint: I scheduled a lumber delivery for June 8 th 2015 about 2 weeks in advance and called 3 days before to confirm and was told the delivery would happen at noon. On June 8th at 12:30 I called golden spike as the lumber had not yet arrived and was told that it was being loaded right now. I waited and at 2:30 called again. I was told that they now expected to deliver at 4:00 at 4:05 I called and was told that the lumber was on the truck at 4:20 the truck showed up. Over 4 hrs late.

Desired Settlement: Refund of delivery fee.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2015/06/25) */ Contact Name and Title: **** ****** Store Manage Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: ***** I am very surprised that this is the first contact made to me by Mr ******* as we would have been more than willing to address his concerns in person.We take customer service very seriously and that certainly includes our delivery service. As we frequently have things happen that affect our ability to make deliveries at specific times, we typically do not promise a time of day but instead do our best to ensure all orders booked to be delivered on any given day are completed each day. I'm sorry if we have caused any inconvenience to Mr ******* and will gladly refund his delivery charge if this would help rectify the situation.
