Additional Complaint Information
BBB reached out to the business with concerns about a pattern of complaints from 2013-2014 concerning Access Unlimited's customer service. Consumers have advised BBB once they order and pay for the product in full they are promised delivery by the company within a 6- week time frame. The 6 weeks turns into 7, 8, 9 weeks with no product. Consumers who then decide to cancel are left waiting for their refund for an unreasonable amount of time with no explanation from the business.
The business answered BBB with the following condensed response:
Access Unlimited is unique even within the market of equipment for people with disabilities in that our products are uniquely crafted for each consumer and each make and model of vehicle. We clearly indicate this information with every order. The advantage of this business model is that we are able to provide solutions that are highly customized to each disabled consumer's needs. The disadvantage of this model is that customized solutions are inherently difficult to plan from a production-planning perspective, and take longer to build. We have worked with the Better Business Bureau in the past to do a much better job of informing our consumers of the fact that production times for customized products are inherently difficult to predict.
That said, we do feel there is and has been significant room for improvement in our company, and have taken concrete steps to improve our results:
First and foremost, in September we hired a customer care manager whose sole responsibility is to track production and maintain consumer relations for any production that is deemed by our production coordinator to be at risk of being behind schedule or behind schedule. She has over 15 years of experience in customer service, and maintains regular contact with consumers, advising them of any existing or potential delays and expected delivery times or resolutions. To address production capacity concerns, we have added approximately 30% to our welding and fabrication staff in the last three months through hiring and reallocation of staff previously involved in different parts of our company. We have expanded our available square footage by nearly 40% in the last three months to alleviate space constraints and allow our production to flow more smoothly. To address concerns regarding accounts payable, we recently added two new administrative staff which allowed us to move accounts receivable/accounts payable from a part-time position to a full-time position.
