    The OP said that payment was made on the basis of delivery on Friday - I take that to mean he had a conversation with the co and agreed full payment for that delivery timescale - an adjustment to the initial contract - but if it's agreed by both parties then it isn't an issue ...
    I rather suspect that the person at Crusader :
    1) didn't realise they were agreeing to the friday delivery
    or
    2) didn't check that it was possible to complete the task in the time
    or
    3) didn't pass the message on
    or
    4) did pass the message on but it got lost in translation
    hopefully not
    5) took payment in full and agreed the date just to get the OP off the phone

    Eitherwhich way - the OP feels he has experienced a lack of clarity and communication with the co - but it has come good in the end - which speaks volumes for the lengths the co will go to deliver the service - however there is obviously a failure in the co to have to go to those lengths to start with.

    It's not a case of apportioning blame - what is best is if both parties go away and work out how they could've achieved this better....

    I guess the OP will consider and advanced requirement date - building in some leeway incase of delay.
    I hope the co will look carefully at their comms trail and try to ensure customers are given the relevant date/schedules - and those are not confused by the customer to mean something different.


    In the service industry - every time a customer has to contact you with a question on the state of their order there is a potential for improvement.

    Rubbish... if you don't want to be called an idiot, don't make stupid statements. The OP was crystal clear.

    Absolutely ... and that's where costs start mounting!

    Ah well in that case, you sir are an idiot.

    The OP was indeed clear but you seem to lack the necessary skill to decypher it.

    I'm losing the will to live now, so I'm off to the boat to do a bit of hull scraping instead.
