TNT the dumbest company in the Land?

Post by harry.fettes » Thu May 21, 2015 8:48 pm

TNT possibly the most irritating incompetent "service" provider out there. New Hero suffered a cracked hull from a manufacturing defect. Kent canoes and Squarerock immediately took responsibility and arranged collection of the damaged boat and delivery of a replacement.
Unfortunately they engaged TNT who despite the manifest clearly stating Kayak and the order being placed by a Kayak retailer turned up at my address simply to inform me without even looking at the package that they don't transport kayaks.

It gets worse. They also picked up the new boat from Squarerock, delivered it to their Aberdeen depot before returning it to Squarerock because they don't do kayaks. How dumb is that.

Hopefully better luck with Parcelforce and Thistle Couriers.

I'm still looking for a courier that will accept a 2.66m creeker Cardiff to Aberdeen, any suggestions
