I ordered two new business phone and was told I would recieve

This answer was rated:

I ordered two new business phone and was told I would recieve them in 2/3 weeks, after 4 weeks I went into the store to be told "that's quite normal sir" not believing this as I was told different at the point of order I rang Vodafone only to be told my ordered had been processed but not auctioned for some reason. They were very apologetic and unfortunately had to start the process again and place a new order, I was told I would receive a text informing when the new phones would be delivered. A few days later i received a text from Vodafone saying the phones would delivered to my home address the following day. I took a day of work to collect the phones though nothing arrived, I rang them at 5.30, 6.00 being the cut off for the delivery only to be told " you should have know the phones would not be coming there is a 2/3 week wait. Arhhh
Phones finall came a week or so later only to find one was faulty, vodafone instructed me to exchange in store, visit stored "sorry not correct procedure" 1 hour later still in store and speaking to customer service "sorry can't exchange you are past the 14 day return policy" what i only had the phone 2 days. Finally informed someone would ring in the 24hrs to collect damaged phone. I am still waiting, my question sorry for the rant is these are business phone, I am MD and I have wasted so much time on this through no fault of mine and complete incompetence or Vodafone. I want to be compensated for my time, what is the best way to pursue this ?
Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Have you signed any form of contract, if so what does it say about termination or default please?

Customer: I agreed a new contract which was recorded over the phone I believe at the first and second order though have not seen sight of these, no doubt it is probably abailable online, I will have a look.
Alex Watts :

Ok - what is it you want to achieve, get out of the contract?


no compensated for my wasted time, due to Vodafones complete incompeteance, who tell a customer to stay in for delivery thats not comming ? then tells them to visit a store that will not be able to help

Alex Watts :

You need to write and set out your losses and request a payment within 14 days or say you will go to Court within 14 days. You should make sure you send this signed delivery and keep a copy.

If they do not pay you then you can issue proceedings in the County Court. You can either do this online at: or by completing form N1 and take it to your local County Court.

The Court will then issue a claim which a copy will be sent to the Defendant who will have a limited time to defend it, if not you can enter Judgment and enforce.

If the matter is defended it will be set down for a trial. If the claim is for £10,000 or less it will be a small claim and you will not need representation. They are in breach of contract as you were told 2-3 weeks and indeed this is 4 weeks.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
