Angry Sheldons Hobbies ..... !!!


I called on Tuesday to place an order for several stuffs such foam tires, battery bars... and a Panasonic UMH pack,
I asked the guy if he could pick a pack with good numbers if possible, then he replied that he will charge to me 25USD extra for choosing...
I was so surprised that I made him repeat, and asked him why ?
the guy said "I am gone" and he hang-up !!!

I am really shocked by this behaviour so I called them again,
the guy recognized me and said that he hanged-up because he didn't want to argue with me and if I order a pack, I will get what they want !!!

I used to order from them and for 2 years now, gave them a lot of money, and I am disgusted by their reaction.

They carry a lot of parts, certainly have a lot of customers but nothing justify a so rude behaviour.

I will never order from them again.

Default how true how tre

This is a recurrent topic, although it hadn't popped up for a while... Sheldon's customer service is a joke. The people you talk to on the phone all have pea-sized brains and Eiffel Tower-sized egos.

It's a bunch of clowns.

Welcome to the club of people not buying at sheldon's anymore. there's tons of good shops out there... I still don't understand how sheldon's hasn't bellied up yet. One word : BOYCOTT

I had a problem with Sheldons when the TC3's first came out. I peordered one way in advance and was one of the first guys on the list. I called back to "add" one to my order. They said it would be placed in line and that It would come later than my first. I said this was no problem. I called about a week and a half after the car was shipping to check on my order. They said they lost my first order. If I wanted to add another kit to my second order i could. This would put me about a month out recieving any kit. I told them to cancel all my orders and went to my LHS and had them get them for me. About 3 days later I had 2 kits at $185.00 each. I havent ordered from sheldons since.
