Kudos To Schmidt & Bender

Recommended Posts

After finding that my S&B 8x56 Klassic didn't suit my night time forays with my Archer add-on, I sold it on fleabay.

 

The buyer (huntergather-2008) had it for FOUR DAYS before claiming it was broken (I have witnesses who will vouch for the fact that there was nothing wrong with it when I sent it).

 

Fleabay in their wisdom never listened to a word I said and repaid the buyer in full from my bank account. And the scumbag even left me bad feedback. :boxing:

 

After paying for the return postage I now had a broken scope (there was a slight rattle when turned end for end) and was out two lots of postage.

 

I suppose there was a very slight chance of Royal mail breaking it although I packed it very well but proving it was well nigh impossible and I didn't even bother to try.

 

No way would I try to sell a broken scope so the only option was to send it back to Germany for repair. More postage!

 

After not hearing anything three weeks later I was told by S&B that they hadn't received it.

 

After cursing my luck yet again (my favourite saying is "If I didn't have any bad luck I'd have no f****** luck at all"

 

I then started a claim with Royal Mail only to be told I couldn't claim til 20 working days had elapsed. Don't know if that got someones finger out but........

 

The very next day I received an email from S&B saying "Good news, your scope has arrived". Did I ever breathe a sigh of relief!

 

Today I received this from S&B, (Can't attach in other than PDF so I hope it works)

I can only say thanks to S&B. Quality service from a quality company.

I know how good s&b scopes are, it is good to hear their customer service is equal to the quality of their optics.

I only sell what can't be broken, such as a pair of weightlifting weights I recently sold. Even then posted sign for and insured at the buyer expense.
