“Previously I had never had much problems with this company.
But very recently had two faulty amps from different makes and models sent to me via their warehouse.
The items that Andertons have sent me also look like the amps had been returned to Andertons by other customers as one of amp had clearly been repackaged and has a bit of green masking type tape on the opened manual package and the power plug package on one of the amps.
This is the second faulty amp item I have received recently from their warehouse.
If you do order from this company, make sure you check the item is fully ok and working.”
Website showing stock but They don’t actually have any when you place order and pay. I phoned up to enquire about my order only to be told it will be a month before I get it from the order date.
Staff very rude not professional.
I’ve googled the reviews only to find many people seem to be experiencing the same as me , ordering from the site saying in stock only to be told after payment they are out of stock.
“I've used Andertons several times over the years. I'm a distance shopper as I live in Cornwall.
There has been a couple of hick ups, but in fairness they were supply problems and out off Andertons control and I felt I might have been unnecessarily shitty with them on one occasion. Their prices are very competitive, staff are extremely friendly and helpful and if the item you want is in stock you're get it pronto. I recently purchased a new Fender bass from them which was 3 days after their estimated delivery time, but again supply problems. Lets cut some slack, Andertons have to rely on suppliers and importers alike. Andertons, whats not to like?”
“Hopeless, hopeless shop. Sell you something off the website on line, debit your credit card, take 3 days to tell you they don't actually have it, then take a week or more to give you your money back. Great scam if you can get away with it, but disgusting business practice and customer "service". Never again.”
“We have placed the order of Ibenaz electric guitar from Andertons music Co. on 27th Feb morning and by afternoon we received call that they have left only display piece, as all fresh new one sold out and could take a week to get new one. They asked us do you want that. We refused to take the display piece as we paid for new guitar and agreed to wait . With-in an hour we received message that our guitar is being dispatched. Received delivery on 28th Feb. On 29th of Feb we have complained that the guitar they have delivered us, got defect in volume knobs as it was not fitted properly and more likely they have sent us the display piece as they told us they didn’t have any new piece left . Send a video of guitar by email. There was no response, so called up and they said they will look into it. They send a mail that the video is not clear so send pictures. So send lots of pics from different angles that shows clearly the fault but first they didn’t agree and start arguing. I am really surprised that I have paid £259 for new guitar and I got response that we can see the problem but there is an “Allen key” given, please do it yourself. I paid for the new guitar and when you can see the problem ,instead of replacing it with new one you are telling customer to do it yourself as you got your money and you don’t care.
They have send me the faulty display guitar and I will strongly warn everyone not to purchase any stuff from this company who don’t take the responsibility of the product they are selling.
I will never order or recommend this supplier to anyone. Please Beware of Andertons Music Co.”
“Great company,great service and really nice and helpful staff.. nothing is ever an issue,they always find easy way to help you with buying decision, purchase or return.
Will happily use again and again.
Very happy customer”
“Ordered a guitar that got lost in the post. Andertons did absolutely nothing to help, didn't bother to answer emails and don't seem to care that they have breached our contract. I will certainly never be ordering from them again, I don't really mind when things go wrong the measure of a good company is how quickly, efficiently and pleasantly they put it right. In this instance Andertons have failed in every respect and are still refusing to put the mess right! SHOP ELSEWHERE!”
“Re: order no. 124779150985 Right, is this some kind of a joke?? Yesterday our dad placed this order and it's taken you till the end of today to tell him you have issues with my payment when your site accepted my order!!! There are no issues with his account and he has made a few purchases since ordering with you. Now your phone line is closed. Seriously, I've never experienced such tosh. Just cancel the whole order and we'll take our business somewhere else!!! You've delayed this because you are inept. You don't deserve our time or money. Waste of time... totally inept, Andertons never even had the courtesy to ring my dad, just sending everything through emails, we want to speak with a human being!! Their loss anyhow, they lost a sale through their inept management. This order was for a gift to my brother for his 18th. Bad show.”
“Efficient website/email correspondence & very happy with my purchase; however, speaking to them in person on the phone wasn't anything to write home about & it didn't exactly fill me with confidence that the sales staff were all that bothered about helping their customers.”
“Great service and price, the staff are interested in helping you, not just selling as much as possible, nothing seems to be too much trouble. The stock is extensive and at every price point, so you can try a £200 Squire or a £3k PRS and see what you get for your money, whatever you choose, you'll get the same great service.”
